While we wait for the Mitsubishi Triton Athlete, let's pay respect to its forefathers

Speak of Mitsubishi, and voices will come out of nowhere, boohooing about the fate of the Lancer Evolution and Eclipse nameplates. But to just confine the storied Japanese carmaker to just two models is to do them a disservice. Which is why we're looking at their pick-up truck history today, one that started 40-plus years ago and has since culminated in the capable Mitsubishi Triton. 1st Generation - Simple workhorse Things started simple for Mitsubishi, heck even the name is just that - the Ame

Better Mitsubishi products for Malaysia as MMC doubles down focus on ASEAN?

As a company, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) have seen better days. Yes, the company still enjoys a strong market presence, especially in 4x4s and it’s still the only brand that’s in a position to challenge the Toyota Hilux's dominance, but it’s safe to say that company have long passed its peak. More than 100 ago, Mitsubishi Motors’ predecessor, the Mitsubishi zaibatsu conglomerate built Japan’s first series production car – the Model A, which was a copy of the Fiat Tipo 3. At its peak, th

Japan too has a problem with cars driving against traffic

The problem of motorists riding/driving against traffic is not unique to Malaysia, although your Facebook feeds will give you that it’s a growing problem confined only to Malaysia. Yesterday, a 35-year old man in Japan was killed when his Honda N-Box was hit head-on by a Toyota Crown driven by a 78-year old man who was driving against traffic. The incident happened yesterday 6-January, at 12.40 am at the Nishimeihan Expressway in Yamatokōriyama city, in Nara prefecture. The younger driver died o

Our Ativa’s rattling sound is fixed! What was the problem? - Long-term review #6

It has been about two weeks of ownership with our Perodua Ativa. How have things been? Well, the rattling sound we mentioned previously had gotten really annoying. Every time we drove over abrupt irregularities on the right side, the sound became more and more apparent. We needed to take the Ativa to Sepang on Tuesday to check out some Malaysian-made electric car, so we held off going to the service centre until Wednesday. About two weeks of driving with that sound, we finally checked in at the

My MPV sliding doors are not working, what is the problem?

So, the sliding doors on your MPV decided to fail on you. It could be a Toyota Alphard, Toyota Estima, Toyota Sienta, Nissan Serena, Hyundai Starex, or a Kia Grand Carnival.

Review: Mitsubishi Triton VGT Adventure X – Great to drive, but smaller than the Hilux

You can't daily drive a pickup truck in Malaysia. Or at least that's what I thought before I tried the Mitsubishi Triton VGT Adventure X. Pickup trucks are purely meant for work, right? They are supposed to be hard to manoeuvre, reek of diesel, have immense body roll, and be uncomfortable to ride in. Well, I'll give you a heads up – the Triton drives like a crossover. It is surprisingly nimble and comfortable. We tested the Mitsubishi Triton VGT Adventure X, which is the only variant with Mitsub

Launching in 2020, the Mitsubishi Xpander is a comfortable, practical 7-seater

Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia has confirmed that it will be launching its first affordable seven-seater – the Xpander – next year. What does it compete against? Set to go up against the Toyota Rush, Perodua Aruz, and Honda BR-V, the Mitsubishi Xpander uses a similar 1.5-litre capacity engine like its rivals, naturally aspirated. However the Mitsubishi Xpander’s dated engine (paired to a 4-speed automatic) pushes out just 105 PS, identical to the Toyota Rush and Perodua Aruz but nowhere near the Hon

3-cylinder engine vibration, noise, and reliability: Still a problem?

In the recent years, we have welcomed some new three-cylinder engine cars to the world – the Nissan Almera 1.0 turbo, Honda City 1.0 turbo (Thailand), Proton X50, and more excitingly, the Toyota GR Yaris. Even Christian von Koenigsegg has channelled his genius into developing a 600 HP three-cylinder engine. With these developments however, some of us still remain very sceptical of them. We will never forget the underpowered three pots in tiny cars like the Perodua Kancil and Perodua Kelisa. Sure

Used Proton Inspira for RM 20k! This or the Mitsubishi Lancer?

It has been 5 years since Proton has discontinued sales of the Proton Inspira, but demand for the car has yet to wane and finding a good used unit is like looking for a needle in the haystack. But for RM 20,000, should you still get a used Proton Inspira or should you just opt for the Inspira’s donor car, the Mitsubishi Lancer instead? The Proton Inspira has always been an interesting product. It came years after Proton has proudly moved on from just rebadging Mitsubishi vehicles and started pro

The one problem with the G20 BMW 3 Series that BMW needs to fix

There is no doubt that about the BMW’s superior dynamics, which is far ahead of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the Audi A4. We absolutely love the way it drives and sounds, even in the four-cylinder 330i. In terms of evolution of character, the G20 BMW 3 Series is closer to the more driver-focused E90 3 Series than the previous F30 model, which closer to the comfort-biased E46 than the sharper handling E90. The G20 BMW 3 Series is more spacious than the E90, without losing any of the excellent dr

Review: 2021 Mitsubishi Triton Athlete is the best Hilux that you want to ride in

If you think the title for this review of the Mitsubishi Triton sounds odd, that’s because you are not reading it in the context of an East Malaysian. To the other half of Malaysia, the word Hilux does not necessarily refer to a Toyota Hilux, but a noun that refers to any pick-up truck. Yes, any. Think it’s wrong? Well if you stop calling Cintan or Mamee instant noodles as Maggi, or referring to every plastic food container as Tupperware, maybe the East Malaysians might listen to you. The Mitsub

Pros and Cons: Honda BR-V – Still better than the Mitsubishi Xpander?

When Honda Malaysia introduced the Honda BR-V back in 2017, many wondered if this new model is an MPV or an SUV. In short, the then-new model from Honda is an SUV, owing to the fact that Honda offers the Honda Mobilio in Indonesia and Thailand, which is essentially an MPV derivative of the BR-V. Furthermore, the Honda BR-V is taxed by the Malaysian Customs as an SUV, not an MPV. The Honda BR-V received its mid-life update earlier in 2020, giving the 7-seater SUV mild styling updates as well as e
