The Mitsubishi Carisma is a large family car produced for the European market by Mitsubishi Motors from 1995 to 2004. The model name was derived from a combination of the English car and the Greek kharisma, meaning "divine gift". It was co-developed with Volvo, sharing its chassis with the first generation of the Volvo S40, and built at the NedCar factory in Born, Netherlands, which the two companies co-owned at the time. Over 350,000 were built during its production run.
Available as a 4-door saloon or a 5-door hatchback, it featured gasoline engines from 1.3L (introduced later in life) to 1.8L, a 1.8L gasoline direct injection engine, and 90hp (67kW) 1.9L turbodiesel powerplants sourced from Renault, later with the 100hp (70kW) 1.9DI-D common rail diesel engine, the same as used in both Volvo and Renault cars.
