In occasion of its 40th anniversary, the new Strada has been significantly changed to match the new design DNA of Mitsubishi Motors. The design theme is called “Rock Solid” and features the Dynamic Shield as used in the Xpander released in 2017.
Like the Xpander, the Mitsubishi Strada 2019 is adorned with bigger fog lamps and slim headlamps. Besides, the overall architecture and shape of the body have been revised. The pickup now gets bigger tail lamps with illumination that looks like the units of the ongoing Montero Sport.
Stepping inside, the Strada interior is equipped with new features, more premium materials, new interior door panels and an all-new dashboard. It is also added some soft-touch surfaces to improve the Strada interior’s feel.
Under the hood, the new Mitsubishi Strada is still powered by the 4N15 2.4-liter MIVEC turbodiesel mill but with an upgraded suspension and chassis. Larger 2-piston caliper pistons in front and bigger brakes discs are also offered, along with more sizeable dampers to enhance the pickup’s comfort and performance.
