Competitors

The Mitsubishi Strada Athlete faces tough competition as both its 2WD and 4WD variants are met by two respected brands in the local automotive landscape. The FX4 from Ford’s iconic Ranger nameplate and Toyota’s ever-reliable Hilux Conquest will give the Mitsubishi Strada Athlete a run for its money.

Nevertheless, the all-new Athlete offers the perfect marriage of swagger and power and will make the competition a little tougher.
