Mitsubishi New Outlander is not launched in India yet. Information on this page is tentative.
Mitsubishi, the Japanese car maker, has been operating in India for more than two decades. Starting with the iconic Lancer, Mitsubishi gave us the Pajero in the 21st century followed by the flagship Montero and then the sporty middle-weight SUV, the Outlander. Bookings for the new 2018 Outlander are open and deliveries are expected to commence from June.
The Outlander is a five-seater SUV and is known for its sporty design. The new generation Outlander has done away with the Evo-ish looks and gets a rather stately high bonnet and a horizontally slatted grille. The cabin has become boxier, making it look larger. The flared wheel arches and the large alloy wheels justify the SUV tag.
Being offered only in one fully loaded trim, the outlander gets black leather upholstery and a full-black dashboard. The interiors are sleek and not busy, unlike the exterior. You get the mandatory touchscreen display, two-zone climate control, power seats and electric mirrors. The second row seats can fold up to extend the boot space and can also be reclined for added comfort. The Outlander gets its safety package of airbags, ABS and EBD along with the electronic stability program.
The Outlander has always been a petrol-only SUV and this is powered by the 2.4-litre MIVEC DOHC four cylinder engine developing 165bhp of power and 222Nm of torque. The engine is paired with a CVT automatic transmission with paddle shifters and a sport mode as well. It gets a torque-on demand all-wheel drivetrain which can be set to full time 4WD or 2WD modes as well.
The Outlander competes with likes of the Hyundai Tucson and the Honda CR-V in the premium SUV segment along with D-segment sedans like the Skoda Octavia.
