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.

A New Era in Excellence – The New 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander

Revealed just last month at the New York International Auto Show, the new Mitsubishi Outlander is set to break all the records, redesigned and re-engineered from nose to tail to deliver modern edgy looks and vastly improved performance on the road.  The 2016 Outlander is the first in the Mitsubishi family to showcase the brand’s striking new “Dynamic Shield” design concept, providing a fresh, sleek look on-road.

With improvements galore, the 2016 model is the perfect balance between amazing new features and the great qualities of past models. But what exactly gives the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander more to love? Have a look:


As mentioned above, the new “Dynamic Shield” design concept is perhaps one of the most obvious exterior features of the 2016 model. This feature is inherited from the bumper side protection seen on generations of the Pajero, providing reassuring protection for both people and car.

Sharper rear styling provides a sleek look, with a new design bumper and silver skid plate. Chrome tailgate garnish and LED rear combo lamps, as well as fog lamps complement the look. The same chrome accents are used throughout the exterior, offering a consistent styling with 18-inch alloy wheels to complete the car’s great looks.


As if the outside wasn’t enough to impress, the inside of the new Outlander delivers even more bang for your buck. Embellished with soft touch features and premium grade materials, the whole cabin is built to impress, with refined stitching highlights on the instrument panel, featuring a gloss black screen, and a soft type centre console with room for all your bits and bobs. The steering wheel has been revamped, with gloss black bezel and new accent trim.

But what about the most important part of the interior – the seats? The 2016 Outlander does not disappoint, with improved lateral support and an increase in side bolster stiffness. The LS and XLS models also feature new black cloth seat trim with stitching details complement the new interior look and further increase comfort.


Boasting improved handling dynamics and reduced noise, vibration and harshness (NVH), the 2016 Outlander drives like a dream.

NVH improvements have been developed in part from the application of extensive sound insulation and isolation damping materials throughout the vehicle. A modified engine air intake system allows for reduced engine noise, cabin boom, road and wind noise, along with features like noise-isolating windscreen glass, improved weather stripping, new tyres, damper tuning and modified suspension mounts. And this isn’t all! In fact, the new Outlander has thirty-nine NVH improvements in total.

Other improvements include better steering response, handling and ride feel, achieved through a more rigid suspension system, reinforced body and Electronic Power Steering calibrations. Comfort and straight line stability has also seen improvement due to the larger diameter rear dampers.

Acceleration also saw a change, with the revised Continuously-Variable Transmission (CVT) system taking it to the next level. Other improvements include better fuel economy, improved transmission shift quality and downshift response.


Like all great Mitsubishis, the 2016 Outlander has received a five-star ANCAP safety rating thanks to its combination of active and passive safety features. Front driver and passenger airbags, side, curtain and knee protection airbags, reverse camera and sensors and a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System are just some of the things that help this model get top spot.

The Outlander’s Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) body structure is further reinforced with active safety features like Traction Control and Active Stability Control (ASC), ABS with Electronic Break Distribution (EBD) and Hill Start Assist.

Mitsubishi vehicles in Brisbane are currently retailing record high numbers because people are seeing the benefits of buying this brand. Here, we will explore why people choose Mitsubishis in more detail.


The main reason that people buy Mitsubishis is because they are undoubtedly one of the most reliable brands. Tests showed that less than 15 cars (out of 100) have to come in with issues every year. ranked Mitsubishi as second (tied) when it came to reliability and performance. When it was on the air, Top Gear in Australia asked 1.4 million about reliability, and Mitsubishi finished just outside the top 5 in 6th. This is a great result when you think of all the types of cars currently on the road.


Another major point has to be safety. Mitsubishis cars always receive great ratings from companies like Ancap, who is a leading Australian company that tests crash safety. Eighteen Mitsubishi cars received an average 4.05 stars. Mitsubishi constantly receives some of the finest safety ratings from the leading Australian company’s year after year because the developers of the car focus on making sure each car is as secure as possible.


If you are buying a brand-new car, and you are working on a budget, Mitsubishi has several cars that compare well to other cars of the same type in terms of cost. The Mitsubishi Lancer, which is one of the lower spec cars on the market at the moment is retailing on the official Mitsubishi site for just over $21,000. At the same time, the Toyota Corolla, a car which is very similar to the Lancer in terms of the specifications of the car costs about $3,500 more for the base model.


It is important for a major car company to offer several different types of car, and this is something that Mitsubishi offers its customers. Mitsubishi is currently retailing four cars, five four-wheel drive vehicles, two commercial cars and three performance cars. When you have found a brand that satisfies your needs you want to know that if you wanted to you could buy a car from the same company and developing new and exciting cars is something Mitsubishi has always focused on.
