Mitsubishi Malaysia has announced the updated Outlander 2.4l to start 2018 right. The locally-assembled Outlander 2.4l will be sold alongside the locally-assembled Outlander 2.0l, which was introduced in September last year.
Mitsubishi Outlander 2.4l: 4WD System and Performance
The latest Outlander 2.4 4WD is powered by a proven 2.4l engine with 167 PS of power and 222 Nm of torque. The DOHC MIVEC engine is paired with INVECS-III CVT transmission with paddle shifters for even better control.
The Outlander comes with an intelligent 4WD system as standard across the range. Unlike on-demand 4WD systems in rival SUVs, the Multi-Select 4WD system in the Outlander has three selectable modes; 4WD Eco, 4WD Auto and 4WD Lock.
Outlander 2.4l: Features
Safety is the Outlander’s strongest suit, befitting its role as a family vehicle. Together with seven airbags, 4WD, ABS and EBD, Brake Assist, Active Stability & Traction Control (ASTC), Hill Start Assist, ISOFIX child seat mounts are standard. The SUV also boasts a strong Mitsubishi Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) body construction.
In addition, the Electronic Parking Brake available in the 2.4L comes with Auto Hold Assist function that allows one to wait at the traffic light or traffic jams without the need to step on the brakes. The Brake Override System is another feature that works as a failsafe measure, prioritizing the brakes if both the brake and accelerator pedals are pressed simultaneously.
Other new stuffs added in the 2018 Outlander include Rest Reminder, All Round Monitor, a Digital Video Recorder (DVR), security and solar film, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Air Gesture Control, push-start switch, auto headlights and more.
In looks, the Outlander 2.4 comes with Full LED headlights and LED daytime running lights, plus LED tail lights, as well as 18-inch wheels with a two-tone hue and a rear spoiler. A sunroof and electronic tailgate are added to evoke the SUV’s premium-ness.
Three colors are available: Ruby Black, Red Metallic, Solar White Ruby Black (new) . The Outlander 2.4 SUV is priced at RM155, 000 on-the-road without insurance, with rebates up to RM4, 000 for the model and 2 years maintenance and 5 years warranty.
