During the Mitsubishi Red Peak Challenge at the outdoor car park area of Tesco Hypermarket (Jalan Jambu), visitors were encouraged to put down their names to be driven for a ride of their life, figuratively speaking.

Sitting in either one of the two vehicles, expertly driven by specially engaged marshals, the vehicles were then put through a series of challenges, so that passengers were able to feel for themselves the power and ability of the suspension of the vehicles to handle such “terrain”, albeit man-made.

4WD vehicles are no longer only used by those who need it off-road, or in rough and demanding industries such as logging and mining. They are in fact also lifestyle vehicles – many owners are also using them as a family car.

Although these two models were introduced to the market some two to three years ago, this roadshow was to create a reminder to the public, about their existence and power, as demonstrated when they effortlessly overcame these obstacles.
