Car reviews - Mitsubishi - Magna - Ralliart sedan
24 Jun 2002
RALLIART Magna's large centre console contains a myriad of controls to adjust the climate control air-conditioning and sound system, but there are plenty of other controls scattered about the cabin. The trip computer mode and function controls are located to the left of the steering column, with dash illumination and traction control (auto only) buttons to the right. Of course, the indicators and headlights are operated via the right-hand stalk, with the variable intermittent wipers and washer positioned on the left-hand stalk. Power window controls (including an illuminated auto-down function for the driver) are placed on the driver's door armrest, along with a window locking button. An internal central locking function is available via the locking tab within the interior door handle itself, while the highly tactile cruise control system is mounted very conveniently on a third stalk fixed to the steering wheel. The steering wheel is adjustable for height only (not reach) and there are no remote steering wheel controls. A driver's footrest is standard equipment - as is the (manual) anti-dazzle rear-view mirror - while the fuel release button is also located in the driver's footwell. There is a large hazard light button next to the climate control unit, while the remote key comprises lock, unlock and boot unlock functions.
