Mitsubishi gives off-road styling tweaks to ASX SUV and Triton ute
25 February 2016
MITSUBISHI has revealed beefed-up versions of its Triton pick-up and ASX
compact SUV, with added exterior and interior styling flair, ahead of their
official debut at next month's Geneva motor show.
Dubbed the Geoseek concepts, the Japanese car-maker says the duo boasts
two-tone styling and “tough-look” accessories that give them more of an
outdoor, adventurous feel.
The exterior is where the changes are the most apparent – both versions of the
Geoseek concept use a solid-tone pearl-grey body finish, while the accessories
and additional bodykit are accented in orange.
Highlighted accessories include foglight bezels, wheel arches, alloy wheel
rims, side garnish, a tailgate spoiler, rear bumper and door mirrors.
The front fascia also gets a mesh inner grill and a skid plate placed
underneath the bumper, while both models are fitted with a roof basket to
enhance the vehicle's outdoor appeal.
The Triton also comes with working lights and hand holds that are fitted to the
roof rails, while the ASX employs LED foglights.
Meanwhile the interior employs the same bright orange accenting over a mostly
black trim, with the seats getting mesh fabric centre panels and suede-like
fabric for the side bolsters.
Mitsubishi Australia head of corporate communications Shayna Welsh said that
the car-maker will monitor the interest in the Geolook duo at Geneva to
determine whether to bring them to market.
“At this stage, we have no concrete plans to market these models in Australia,
however, our parent company will gauge public feedback at Geneva and may decide
to include these in a future line-up,” she said.
