Mitsubishi’s all-new Pajero Sport 4x4 SUV and Triton ute have come out on top in OzRoamer’s 2015 4WD & AWD SUV Awards.
The Pajero Sport Exceed was awarded best 4WD Under $60,000 and the fifth-generation Triton Exceed was crowned Dual Cab Ute winner for the second time.
OzRoamer Editor Rob Fraser said the Pajero Sport and Triton were worthy winners in their category, praising their strong on and off-road performance.
“The Mitsubishi Pajero Sport Exceed is packed full of features and safety, ideally suited to 4WD enthusiast and adventurous families.”
"The value-packed Mitsubishi Triton has always been a great performer off road, being robust, honest and reliable.”
Mitsubishi Motors Australia Executive Director of Marketing Tony Principe said the award highlights both vehicles’ superior driving capabilities and industry-best value.
“We’re thrilled to see the Pajero Sport receive this award after only a few weeks on sale,” he said.
“The new Pajero Sport is the most advanced fully-capable Mitsubishi 4x4 SUV to date combining the spaciousness and versatility of a full-size SUV, genuine four-wheel drive ability, advanced powertrain technology and class-leading safety.
“Since its launch last year, our best-ever Triton offers a more refined and car-like drive while still retaining the trademark strength, durability and reliability that Triton has built its reputation on in Australia.
“It’s great to see Triton take the title of Dual Cab Ute winner for the second time.”
