The new variant is positioned between the recently introduced Triton VGT AT GL, costing RM103,800, and the range-topping Triton VGT Adventure - which gets a RM3,910 price reduction to RM126,990 and now has a newly designed sports bar.

All Triton models are imported as a Completely Built-Up (CBU) unit from Mitsubishi Motors’ global production hub in Thailand and are covered by a five-year or 200,000km warranty, while the Triton Quest gets a five-year or 100,000km warranty instead.

The Triton is powered by a 2.4-litre MIVEC turbodiesel engine with Variable Valve Timing technology and a Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT) producing 181PS
and 430Nm of torque.
