Mitsubishi’s Class Leading Outlander SUV Priced To Lead
Available only in 4WD, the Complete Built-Up (CBU) vehicle from Japan is powered by a 2.4-litre Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control (MIVEC) engine boasting a maximum output of 167 PS at 6,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 222Nm at 4,100 rpm. The Outlander SUV is offered in three colours- Red Metallic, White Pearl and Grey Metallic.
The Outlander SUV comes with premium features such as Sunroof, Electric Tailgate, LED Headlamps with Daytime Running Lights (DRL) and is further accentuated with 18” Dual-Tone Alloy Wheels to complete the stylish stance. Moving into the cabin, the Outlander SUV comes with a versatile 7-seater Leather Seats and Auto Light and Rain Sensor.
Like other Mitsubishi models, high safety performance is a top priority. Standard safety features offered in the Outlander SUV include 7-Airbags, Active Stability and Traction Control (ASTC), Hill-Start Assist (HSA), Anti-lock braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist, Mitsubishi’s Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE body) and Collapsible Steering Column.
For performance, the Outlander SUV comes with a multi-select 4WD system offering three different modes – 4WD ECO, 4WD Auto and 4WD Lock.
The 4WD ECO emphasizes on fuel economy where torque is distributed to the front wheels during normal driving conditions and automatically splits to all wheels for better traction and stability during slippery road conditions. This enables the Outlander SUV to deliver one of the best-in-class fuel efficiency of 12.8km/l*. (*Based on Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia in-house driving data.)
4WD Auto automatically distributes the right amount of torque to all wheels to provide smoother cornering performance and maintains high speed stability while 4WD Lock permanently feeds torque to all wheels during a hill climb, muddy trails or rough roads.
Best-in-class features of the Outlander SUV include a spacious cargo which can fit up to 4 golf bags or a single-bed mattress (1,608-litre) and a turning radius of 5.3 metres.
