Debonair

Following the first-generation Debonair and the Debonair V, the third iteration of Mitsubishi Motors' executive sedan series was launched in October 1992. Mitsubishi Motors devoted the full spectrum of its vehicle technology into its development and design to achieve the highest levels in terms of size, styling and performance. The Debonair's body was 110mm longer and 90mm wider than its predecessor, featured stately proportions that created a rich and distinctive personality embraced by aesthetically pleasing soft lines and with its generously roomy interior and spacious trunk could rightly claim to offer the full package. The company spared no effort in bestowing the Debonair with the kind of equipment specification that befitted this class of car. The high-tech equipment specification included the laser-based distance warning system which monitored the distance to the vehicle ahead and automatically shifts the transmission out of overdrive (OD) when the system determines the situation was getting dangerous.
Other advanced features included a Rear View Monitor system that sent images to the center console display when reversing, an Active Power Lock system that completed the closing process after the doors and trunk lid had been partially shut, as well as the Mitsubishi Intelligent Cockpit System (MICS) that automatically set seat, head restraint, mirror and steering column tilt/telescope positions to the preferences of the driver operating the keyless entry system. The Debonair was powered by a 3.0L V6 or 3.5L V6 DOHC engine mated to Mitsubishi Motors' INVECS automatic transmission that used fuzzy control logic system in controlling shift patterns to assist the driver.
