With an aspiring entry on the Philippines turf, the Mitsubishi Adventure made its presence count back in 1997. Since then it has enthralled the locals with its competitive price tag and ample interior space, which can fit in more than your expectations.
Being a Multi-purpose vehicle, the people in the Philippines have enjoyed its presence for about 18 long years, which is quite some time for a vehicle to prevail in the country. This Japanese MPV has travelled a long way from 1997 to 2016. Although, its styling isn’t that appealing and eye-catchy but its decent performance on road and price tag steals the cake.
The brand has put this vehicle against the likes of Toyota Innova and Isuzu Crosswind and despite the tough competition, it has emerged out with flying colors contributing huge sale numbers from the brand’s counterpart. Back in 2014, Mitsubishi rolled out the 100,000th Adventure, which clearly denotes the love and appreciation this MPV has accumulated from people in the Philippines. Selling more than 100,000 units across the country isn’t an easy task, but with sustained production, confidence and equipment it challenged the world’s leader, Innova big time.
