Triton and Pajero Sport’s 4×4 capabilities and durability reinforced in Sabah
Sabahans were treated to a taste of the Dakar Rally recently when the Dakar Rally Experience by Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia rolled into Kota Kinabalu for the first time. Among the highlights of the event was the opportunity to sit in a special high speed taxi-ride with two-time Dakar Rally Champion Hiroshi Masuoka from Japan.
The Mitsubishi 4×4 Dakar Rally Experience took place at Alamesra from 28-29 May. Being the first 4×4 event of its kind to be held in Kota Kinabalu, the response was overwhelming when more than 5,000 people attended the two-day event, which concluded with a magnificent fireworks display.
Participants were given a rare chance to experience the ride of their lives with Hiroshi Masuoka behind the wheel, tackling special high speed off road rides that perfectly showcased the 4×4 capabilities of the award-winning Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and Triton.
Visitors were also treated to fun activities and live band performances at the Mitsubishi 4×4 Dakar Rally Experience. With great deals to enjoy and fun activities for the whole family, the first 100 daily to test drive any Mitsubishi Motors models went home with an exclusive Mitsubishi Motors merchandise.
As part of Mitsubishi’s effort to serve East Malaysian customers better, Mitsubishi Motors now has six 3S centres in operation. Three more 3S centres are in the pipeline and will begin operations before end of this year. Mitsubishi owners can now visit its newly appointed authorised parts stockists, Standard Spare Parts Sdn Bhd in Kota Kinabalu and Kuching.
