Libero

Mitsubishi Motors launched the Libero multi-purpose station wagon in May 1992 after a total makeover of styling, road performance and functionality to meet the ever-diversifying needs of station wagon users. Coined from the Italian for "free", the name Libero was also familiar to the Japanese for its use in soccer terminology (meaning sweeper). The Libero was developed to a "multi-purpose town car" concept with sedan-like fresh and urban styling that made it look at home in a wide variety of situations, with generous interior space and a flat luggage compartment floor, and with a number of functional features including reclining double-action split rear seats allowing left and right squabs and seatbacks to be folded down separately. It was initially offered with two engines: a 1.8L engine and a new 2.0L dieselturbo engine. The Libero's firm but pliant suspension and wide track together with its high-rigidity body structure gave it excellent handling and stability. The range was also offered with a number of active safety systems, including fulltime four-wheel drive with viscous coupling center differential, anti-lock braking, a LED high mounted stop lamp and rear fog lamps.
