Why choose a 4x4?
Because 4x4s offer better stability and grip on the road, your day to day driving is safer, and your better equipped to handle bad weather like heavy rain or icy surfaces than you would be with a two wheel drive car.
Safer in all conditions
Stable and solid in wet weather
In heavy rain, or when there is lots of standing water on the road, 4x4 cars are better able to handle the reduced traction, with all four wheels dynamically adjusting brake force to provide the most stability possible.
Ice and snow
Better grip on slippery surfaces
From hill starts to country corners, all aspects of driving are more dangerous when the temperature drops. A modern 4x4 monitors traction in real time, intelligently distributing power and brake force to each wheel to maximise grip.
A 4x4 mode for every situation
4x4s typically provide different settings for different conditions. Mitsubishi models employ some of the best 4x4 systems available.
High Driving Position
You're safer in a 4x4
To tackle off-road conditions, 4x4s needs to have enhanced systems for handling uneven and slippery terrain and these technologies translate to a safer driving experience on and off the road.
Active Stability Control
Keeping you in control
Active Stability Control (ASC) helps you maintain control. When the system detects a loss in grip, it applies braking force to one or more of the wheels while it automatically adjusts engine output to regain grip.
Hill Descent Control
Keep in control on steep slopes
Negotiating steep uneven ground? That’s where Hill Descent Control is a huge help. Hill Descent Control will automatically apply the brakes to maintain your current speed, so you can focus your attention on steering.
Hill Start Assist
Never roll backwards
Starting your 4x4 on a steep slope? Hill Start Assist makes it easy by keeping the brake on for up to two seconds, until you press the accelerator. You never need to worry about rolling back again.
Conquer all terrain
Improve traction when driving off road by choosing the GRAVEL, MUD/SNOW, SAND or ROCK* setting. Just press the OFF ROAD MODE selector until the appropriate mode appears in the multi-information display. The engines output, transmission settings and braking adjust accordingly to optimise performance.
* The ROCK setting is only available in the 4LLc setting.
**OFF ROAD MODE is only available in the 4HLc and 4LLc setting.
