Mitsubishi Motors Australia (MMAL) has confirmed its New-Gen Triton Dual-Cab Utility has achieved the maximum five-star ANCAP safety rating.

The five-star rating applies to all Triton Dual-Cab model grades, across 4 x 2 and 4 x 4 drivetrains.

“To be the first Dual Cab Utility to achieve the stringent 2024 five-star ANCAP safety rating is a testament to this, and proves how serious Mitsubishi is about safety. – MMAL CEO, Shaun Westcott

“This builds on the significant enhancements New-Gen Triton embodies, from its more powerful and responsive engine and 3.5-tonne towing capacity to its roomier, more comfortable interior and cutting-edge infotainment.

“We are also proud of how closely the MMC and MMAL teams have worked on this project from the outset.

“To see the results of that collaboration – from steering and suspension tuning to ensuring five-star ANCAP safety – is truly impressive.”

In introducing its five-star rating, ANCAP referenced Triton’s extensive airbag installations, including dual frontal, side chest-protecting and side head-protecting, driver’s knee, and centre airbags. These are fitted as standard across the range.

ANCAP also mentioned the extensive active safety suite, including AEB (car-to-car, Vulnerable Road User, junction, and backover), as well as the lane support system with Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning, and speed sign recognition.
