Mitsubishi Outlander: What's new?
This Outlander marks a new chapter for Mitsubishi, which is using the latest version of its flagship vehicle to introduce a fresh design language that will be rolled out across the rest of its line-up globally. The SUV is also one of Mitsubishi’s first products that has been built under the Renault-Nissan Influence and shares some of its underpinnings with SUVs like the Nissan Rogue. The new Outlander's ‘Dynamic Shield’ design features a bolder face than that of the previous model, with chrome styling integrated with new, ultra-slim LED headlights.
The new Outlander uses a Nissan-sourced 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine, with top-spec models boasting four-wheel drive. Six different driving modes are offered to give drivers the best possible performance in all conditions. Even two-wheel-drive models get five driving modes. The Outlander has seven seats as standard, as well as 18-inch wheels, USB-A and USB-C charging sockets and 11 airbags throughout the vehicle. Available equipment includes a 12.3-inch digital instrument display and a 9.0-inch infotainment screen. This offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, with wireless device charging included.
Among the other options are 20-inch wheels, semi-aniline leather seats, Mitsubishi’s driver assistance system with adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assistance, navigation integrating what3words technology, a 10-speaker Bose audio system and a 10.8-inch head-up display.
Mitsubishi Outlander: Where will it go on sale first?
North America will be the first market that will see a price announcement for the new Outlander in the coming months. Mitsubishi will not sell the model in Europe as the brand has stopped importing new models to the continent. The Outlander will, however, go on sale in other markets like Japan, middle-East, the ASEAN region as well as Australia and New Zealand. As far as India goes, Mitsubishi did sell the previous-gen Outlander in very limited numbers, there is no news on the latest version coming to our shores anytime soon.
