MMAL’s President and CEO, Genichiro Nishina, said the introduction of the two-wheel drive Challenger offers customers more flexibility and caters for the growing demand for two-wheel drive vehicles.

“The two-wheel drive segment is becoming increasingly popular with customers wanting versatile vehicles that offer economical performance, so we are pleased to introduce the 2WD Challenger with the option of a reversing camera to enhance safety,” Nishina said.

The reversing camera is available for the two-wheel drive diesel automatic Challenger through the Convenience Pack which retails for $3,640 and also includes side and curtain airbags to improve vehicle safety.

On the exterior, the Convenience Pack adds 17-inch alloy wheels, stylish radiator grille, fog lamps, rain and light sensors and roof rails. In the cabin, the pack includes a leather steering wheel with audio controls, privacy glass, six speaker sound system and climate control.

Powered by a 2.5L high power Common Rail Direct Injection Turbo Diesel engine and with the choice of five speed manual or automatic transmission, Challenger 2WD boasts fuel economy of 8.2L/100km and 9.6L/100km respectively and has a three tonne towing capacity.

Reversing camera is now a standard feature for the four-wheel drive LS and XLS models, with the camera monitor appearing automatically in the electro-chromatic rear view mirror when reverse gear is engaged to enhance driver visibility and awareness.

Cabin comfort and convenience has been improved through the addition of a USB port on LS and XLS models while seven seat models receive improved rear air-conditioning.

Available colour choices for the 2WD Challenger include Charcoal, Cool Silver, Terra Rossa, Dark Blue, White and Black. The 4WD Challenger LS and XLS colours include Charcoal, Cool Silver, Ironbark, Terra Rossa, Dark Blue, White and Black with Challenger 4WD base model available in all colours excluding Ironbark.

Mitsubishi provides its industry leading warranty on all Challenger vehicles, including a comprehensive five year/130,000 km whole vehicle warranty, backed up by its 10 year/160,000 km powertrain warranty and a five year/130,000 kilometre roadside assistance package.
