The new variant comes with a 2.4-liter 4N15 Clean Diesel MIVEC engine that produces 178hp and 430Nm. It's paired to either a six-speed manual transmission or a five-speed automatic transmission with sport mode. The exterior features a new dark chrome grille and side step plate. Also in chrome are the power side mirrors with integrated LED turn signals. Up front are foglamp-integrated daytime running lights, complemented by a set of foglamps in the rear. Completing the package are 17-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the new Strada's seats are lined in high-grade black fabric. Its four-spoke steering wheel comes wrapped in leather and is mounted with audio and cruise control buttons. The AT variant's tiller also comes with magnesium paddle shifters. Safety features include ABS, electronic brake-force distribution, and Mitsubishi's Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) body construction.
The new Strada GLS 2WD variant is now available at all authorized Mitsubishi dealerships. The manual variant costs P1,215,000, while the automatic version will set you back P1,295,000. Price-wise, that places it above all the GL and GLX options, and below the 4WD GLS and GT-V variants.
