The Mitsubishi Triton shows its grunt with Aussie off-road champion Toby Price at the wheel

Mitsubishi is an Aussie favourite, known for its tough utes and sporty city cars. But until now, it hasn’t seen much of the spotlight in Australian motorsports. Just last month, Mitsubishi Motors Australia announced that four-time Australian Off-Road Champion, Toby Price, was its newest ambassador, having taken delivery of a new 2016 Mitsubishi Triton Exceed.

The Mitsubishi Triton Exceed is a new addition to the Triton family, the perfect support vehicle for Price, who regularly competes in challenging off-road motorsport events around the country. As a professional in motorsports, Price spends a lot of time on the road, taking his motorcycle and racing equipment with him. The Triton gives the grunt he needs, without sacrificing comfort or good looks.

Tough and reliable, the four-wheel drive capability makes it perfect for reaching more remote locations for the racing professional, and with a quiet engine and a superior interior, long drives are made easy.

With a long history in endurance motorsport, Mitsubishi is the perfect partner for Price, featuring some of the best Mitsubishi has to offer, including a new 2.4-litre MIVEC turbo diesel engine and customised Mitsubishi Genuine Accessories including nudge-bar, roof racks, tub-liner and driving lights.

Top 5 Tips for First Time Mitsubishi Car Buyers

When you’re a first time buyer of anything, it can be a fairly daunting process if you aren’t particularly knowledgeable and you don’t know what to look out for.

Buying a Mitsubishi car for the first time is no different, and with all manner of car dealers, marketing ploys, and sales tactics to face, it can be very difficult figuring out when you’re getting a good deal and when someone is simply pulling the wool over your eyes, so to speak.

Fear not, for in this article we are going to explore the top five tips for Mitsubishi car buyers:

  • Budget
    Before you do anything else, you’ll need to determine how much money you’re willing to spend on your new vehicle; this means asking yourself questions such as whether you’re going to pay monthly or purchase outright, what kind of initial payment you can afford to put down, and one kind of financing plan you will ultimately opt for.
    Budgeting like this will also help you to have a more realistic idea of the kind of cars that are within your price range so that you don’t end up tormenting yourself by coveting a range of high-end vehicles that are completely beyond your budget.
  • Efficiency
    Back to the matter of the car itself, another factor to consider that is closely related to budgeting is the reliability and fuel-efficiency of the vehicle.
    As well as the cost of the car purchase itself, make sure you opt for vehicle that is well reviewed and will not cost you an arm and a leg in maintenance costs and fuel consumption.
  • Take Your Time
    Buying a new car can be quite exciting for some people, but you should remain patient and not make any hasty decisions.
    When you first begin visiting car dealerships, do so with no intention of buying on you first visit; instead, speak to an advisor and assess exactly what is on offer. This is also a great chance to get a feel for the quality of service the dealership will be able to offer you.
  • Choosing a Dealership
    Researching who you buy your new Mitsubishi from is just as important as learning about the vehicle itself; you will ideally want to use a company with a proven track record of good customer service, transparency, and competitive prices.
    An obvious choice is Bartons Bayside Mitsubishi; with their more than 66 years of experience, they are one of the largest family-owned dealerships in Queensland and are sure to be able to answer any questions you might have while offering some very competitive packages.
  • Keep Your Poker Face On
    If you’ve found the car you want and you’ve settled on a dealership, arrange a test drive but don’t get too excited just yet; if you want to negotiate the best deal and ensure your salesperson is going to be open to negotiation, keep your poker face on and don’t suggest at any point that your mind is made up.
    It is also a good idea to settle on a final price before you begin negotiating any trade-ins or financing options.

Hopefully these car buying tips have been of use and you can now begin to process of putting these steps into action to ensure you drive away with the car you want, safe in the knowledge that you’re getting a fantastic deal.
