Locally-assembled Mitsubishi Outlander available now

Mitsubishi Malaysia has unveiled the updated and locally-assembled Outlander SUV, today. The 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander has a plethora of safety features and ample space, and is now locally-assembled to make it more cost effective for buyers.

The Mitsubishi Outlander was launched in the country in April 2016 as a completely built up (CBU) import from Japan. The new locally-assembled Outlander 2.0l 4WD variant will be sold alongside The CBU 2.4L 4WD, which widens the brand’s SUV line-up. The introductory price for the locally-assembled Mitsubishi Outlander 2.0l 4WD is RM 139,988.00 until year end. The Outlander comes with MMM’s standard factory warranty of five years and unlimited mileage.

For the locally-built Mitsubishi Outlander, the engine fitted is a proven 2.0-liter engine with 145 PS and 196 Nm of torque. The DOHC MIVEC engine is paired with a INVECS-III CVT transmission.

With many years of winning experience in the gruelling Dakar Rally under its belt, Mitsubishi is a specialist in rugged 4WD vehicles. By improving traction on slippery surfaces and stability, 4WD plays a role in active safety; it is especially valuable on SUVs with tall bodies and a high center of gravity. This effectively applies to the Outlander, which comes with an intelligent 4WD system as a standard equipment in the line-up. 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.







Safety is another of the Outlander’s strongest USPs, befitting its role as a family vehicle. Together with 4WD, the safety and assistive sustems include seven airbags, ABS and EBD, Brake Assist, Active Stability & Traction Control (ASTC), Hill Start Assist (HSA) and ISOFIX child seat mounts. In addition, the SUV has a rigidly Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) body construction. Other helpful safety features include Rest Reminder, which reminds the driver to take a break when fatigue steps in, and a reverse camera.

Much like the imported Outlander, the domestically built one takes on the brand’s signature Dynamic Shield face and LED daytime running lights, plus striking 18-inch alloy wheels.

Within the stylish body is a spacious seven-seater cabin with ample room for five adults. The Outlander boasts best-in-class cargo volume of 1,608 liters with the second and third-row seats folded.

Standard equipment includes automatic headlights and wipers, and keyless entry with push start button. A 7-inch HD touchscreen infotainment system with CarPlay functionality. The screen comes with Air Gesture Control for added convenience. And that’s not all, there are front and rear parking sensors, a digital video recorder (dashcam) and security/solar film.

The OUtlander is available to view at Mitsubishi showrooms nationwide. There’re three colors to choose from: Red Metallic, Solar White and Ruby Black (new).
