Designed for toughness from grille to tailgate, the Mitsubishi L200 Sportero 4WD Double-Cab is the sixth generation of its kind. It is also known as Triton or Strada in the international market.

GHK Motors, the sole distributor of Mitsubishi vehicles in Brunei, hosted a media preview of the pickup at Mulia Hotel’s Melati Executive Room yesterday.

GHK Marketing Executive Ahmad Faezul Imtiaz Ada, who briefed the media, gave an overview and technical insights and features of the Sportero.

Assited by Mitsubishi sales consultants Rahman bin Haji Zanai and Mohamad Hadine, yesterday’s event also gave the media a chance to get behind the wheel and feel the performance of the Mitsubishi L200 Sportero 4WD Double-Cab.

Carrying the tagline of ‘Engineered Beyond Tough’, the Sportero’s front grille feature is designed with the latest version of Mitsubishi Motors Corporation’s trademark of Dynamic Shield with a geometric design, portraying the balance between dynamism and power.

This Dynamic Shield design offers greater protection for passengers, pedestrians, and the vehicle itself while the key to Mitsubishi L200 Sportero’s standout performance is the 2.4 Litre MIVEC engine (Mitsubishi Intelligent & Innovative Valve timing & lift Electronic control system).

The Mitsubishi L200 Sportero 4WD Double-Cab is turbocharged and intercooled DOHC common rail diesel engine for dominant performance and optimum efficiency, and delivers a peak torque of 430Nm at 2500 rpm and 133kW of power at just 3500 rpm.
