Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) the official distributor of Mitsubishi vehicles in Malaysia has introduced the enhanced Mitsubishi Outlander SUV that receives some minor exterior and interior tweaks.
New additional features found in the enhanced Outlander includes electronic parking brake, interior floor illumination lamps and shark fin antenna – a small touch to enhance the overall sleek exterior design of the SUV.
Besides the minor tweaks, the Outlander SUV comes standard with premium features such as sunroof, electric tailgate with anti-pinch feature, LED Headlamps with Daytime Running Lights (DRL) and is further accentuated with 18-inch Dual-Tone Alloy Wheels to complete the stylish stance.
Inside the the cabin, the Outlander SUV feature a versatile 7-seater leather seats and auto light and rain sensor as a standard feature.
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, paired to a Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) with 6-Step Manual Mode.
The Outlander SUV also comes with a multi-select 4WD system offering three different modes which include, 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 MMM 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.
Just 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), and ISOFIX to ensure maximum safety for infants.
The Outlander SUV also feature best-in-class spacious cargo space which can fit up to 4 golf bags or a single-bed mattress (1,608-litre) and a turning radius of 5.3 metres.
Available in Red Metallic, White Pearl and Grey Metallic colour, the enhanced Outlander SUV is priced at RM171,000 (On-the-road in Peninsular Malaysia without insurance GST inclusive). It also comes with a warranty package of five years or 100,000km, whichever comes first.
