Remember the Delica 4WD you used to see back in the day from surplus Subic auctions? That spirit lives on today with the new Delica D:5 as you can still get it with that option. But let's say you want to make it stand out a little bit more and show off your adventurer side. Mitsubishi has got you covered.
For the new Delica D:5, Mitsubishi is offering off-road touring accessories for the high-riding 4WD version of the van, along with other accessories for added convenience.
Beefing up the front end of the Delica D:5 is an under garnish, making it appear that it has a skid plate. Bigger mudflaps also adds to the off-roader look and is available in two colors, red and black. There's also a metal step board for the rear sliding door for ease of ingress and egress. The Delica D:5 can also be fitted with a roof basket for those extra loads. Lastly, a faux skid plate rounds up the upgrades for the van.
Aside from the exterior upgrades, there's a larger 10-inch infotainment screen available for the Delica D:5. It adapts a four-way split-screen interface which can display audio, navigation, phone connection, and vehicle information all at once.
Keeping rear passengers entertained is what Mitsubishi calls dual-zone entertainment system wherein front passengers and rear passengers can enjoy two different videos at the same time. At the back, there's a pull-down screen, measuring in at 11.5 inches. Last but not least is a remote start system that also lets you control the sliding doors from the outside.
For now, Mitsubishi hasn't made any solid plans of offering the new Delica D:5 outside of Japan, moreso make a left-hand drive version of the D:5. The 2007-2018 model was sold in some ASEAN countries with right-hand drive. But should Mitsubishi make left-hand drive versions of the van, it should be an interesting addition to our local lineup.
