Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM), the official distributor of Mitsubishi vehicles in Malaysia, introduced the new Mitsubishi Triton Athlete today. The Triton Athlete will now replace Triton Adventure X as the flagship of the Triton pickup range.
Aesthetics-wise, the Triton Athlete is accentuated by a gloss black front under garnish, whereas the ‘Dynamic Shield’ front design concept now incorporates a glossy black radiator grille and sporty ‘Athlete’ graphic design side stripe stickers. This stylistic treatment is further carried onto the side mirrors, door handles, aero type window deflectors, 18-inch gloss black rims and side steps.
On the inside – the Athlete is spiced up with orange-stitching leather wrapped steering, gear knobs and LED illuminated scuff plates. The Triton Athlete also comes with first-in-class rear air circulator.
Under the hood, the Triton Athlete is powered by the tried and tested (4N15) 2.4-litre Mivec common-rail turbodiesel engine, which produces 181PS and 430 Nm of torque. Power is sent to a 6-speed automatic gearbox and then towards the four wheels through a Super Select 4WD II system.
Safety-wise, the Triton Athlete comes standard with 7-airbags, Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM), Blind Spot Warning with Lane Change Assist (BSW with LCA), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), Ultrasonic Misacceleration Mitigation System (UMS), and Auto High Beam (AHB).
Other highlight features include All Round Monitor (ARM), Driving Video Recorder (DVR) and 7-Inch Touchscreen Audio with Apple Carplay and Android Ready as standard.
