Although it is scheduled to be launched in April, Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia officially previewed the all-new Mitsubishi Outlander last Friday and at the same time allowing customers to place their bookings for the new SUV.
“I am optimistic that the all-new Outlander SUV will win the hearts of many Malaysian car buyers. Competitively priced with stylish outlook, generous 7-seater space, best premium and safety features, the all-new Outlander SUV offers an outstanding SUV for any Malaysian family,” said Mr. Yang Won-Chul, Chief Executive Officer of Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia.
The new Outlander is available only in 4WD and is powered by a 2.4-liter Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control (MIVEC) engine that pushes out 167PS at 6,000rpm and a maximum torque of 222Nm at 4,100rpm.
The 4WD systems has three different driving modes to offer – 4WD ECO, 4WD Auto and 4WD Lock. In 4WD Eco, the Outlander is able to deliver one of the best-in-class fuel efficiency of 12.8km/l. In 4WD Auto, the right amount of torque is distributed to all four wheels to provide smoother cornering performance, while 4WD Lock permanently feeds torque to all wheels during a hill climb, muddy trails or rough roads.
Safety is also a priority for Mitsubishi where the Outlander comes as standard with features like 7 airbags, Active Stability and Traction Control (ASTC), Hill-Start Assist (HAS), 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.
The Outlander is also fitted with premium features such as a sunroof, electric tailgate, LED headlamps with daytime running lights (DRL), and 18-inch dual-tone alloy wheels. On the inside, the passengers are kept comfortable in the versatile 7-seater Leather Seats.
The all-new Outlander SUV comes with an exclusive introductory on-the-road price of RM 166,720 for cars booked before 31st May 2016. The Outlander also comes with a warranty package of five years or 100,000km, whichever comes first.
