Mitsubishi 4-Wheel Drive Explained, Video
Mitsubishi Motors brings the same strong focus on quality to all of its 4WD vehicles like the all-new Outlander
Electronically Controlled 4WD
The electronically controlled 4WD system comes in three modes which can be chosen according to the driver’s preferences and the driving conditions. Drivers can switch the drive mode instantly and while driving the vehicle. All that is required is a single touch of the drive mode selector on the console. The front and rear torque distribution mechanism uses electronically controlled coupling to distribute the torque between the front and rear wheels appropriately at all times, based on vehicle driving conditions and the operation by the driver, etc. Furthermore, it ensures outstanding traction performance while at the same time eliminating the tight corner braking phenomenon characteristic of 4WDs.
This all new Outlander is fully imported and offers a wide array of safety features to keep the driver and occupants’ safe at all times. Active safety systems available include Hill Start Assist (HSA), ABS with EBD and Active Stability Control (ASC) to keep drivers in check. The 3rd generation SUV is kitted out with up to seven air-bags and boasts an ultra-high strength steel body structure (RISE), making it one of the safest SUV’s in the market.
