The new-look Outlander has been redesigned and re-engineered from nose to tail to deliver a dynamic new appearance and significantly improved performance on the road. Under the skin, it gains improvements to interior NVH (Noise, Vibration, Harshness) for a smoother and quieter ride, while a new 8th generation CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) with 6-speed manual mode ensures the best mix of performance and fuel economy.

“The new Mitsubishi Outlander demonstrates the brand’s renewed emphasis on style, refinement and driver engagement,” says Mr Alvyn Ang, Director of Operations, Cycle & Carriage Automotive Pte Limited. “But this new model combines its traditional virtues with new levels of refinement, convenience and styling. I’m confident that it will find an appreciative audience in customers who balance an active lifestyle with the need for comfortable family transport.”

Exterior

The new Outlander is the first Mitsubishi production vehicle to showcase the brand’s striking new “Dynamic Shield” design concept, giving the Outlander a fresh, sophisticated on-road presence. This feature is inherited from the bumper side protection seen on generations of the Pajero, providing reassuring protection for both people and car. The black central section of the fascia, suggesting power and performance, is embraced by wrap-around bumper end styling to create a shape which gives expression in a dynamic and powerful way to the front function of providing protection for both occupants and car.

Sporting a modern, sophisticated and sporty on-road presence, the new Mitsubishi Outlander comes fitted with chrome and silver plated grilled, daytime running lights and dipped beam headlights in LED technology.

The new Outlander’s sharper rear styling features a new design bumper and silver skid plate. Chrome tailgate garnish with new design LED rear combination lamps and rear fog lamp compliment the front design.

The Outlander’s new exterior design is unified overall through the use of body-wide chrome accents, silver roof rails and door sill garnish under the bottom edge of the front and rear doors. New look 18-inch alloy wheel design complete the modern exterior.

Interior

The new Outlander gets a fresh design update to the interior space incorporating stylish yet functional features.

The interior is embellished with soft touch features and premium grade materials at every contact point. A new design steering wheel features gloss black bezel and new accent trim has been applied to the doors and dashboard. New material headlining, subtle stitching highlights on the instrument panel and a padded centre console enhance the sophisticated feel of the cabin.

Seating comfort has been greatly enhanced with improved lateral support and an increase in side bolster stiffness.

Functionality has been greatly improved with an electro-chromatic rear view mirror.

Performance

The new Outlander boasts improved handling and greatly reduced noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) along with increased body and structural rigidity for a quieter and superbly composed ride.

NVH improvements have been developed in part from the application of extensive sound insulation and isolation damping materials throughout the vehicle. Engine noise, road and wind noise are all reduced due to the modified engine air intake system, noise-isolating windscreen glass, improved weather stripping, damper tuning and modified suspension mounts. In total, thirty-nine NVH improvements have been applied to the new model.

The door closing sound is further improved by revising the structure of the door seals for greater sense of quality when opening and closing.

Refinement also comes in the form of manoeuvrability. Improved steering response, handling and ride feel are achieved through a more rigid suspension system, reinforced body and Electronic Power Steering calibrations. The larger diameter rear dampers allow accurate tuning to gain good straight line stability and high levels of ride comfort.

Experience incredible traction and stability on any terrain by user selectable 4-wheel-drive modes: 4WD Auto, 4WD Lock and 4WD Eco.

The new generation Continuously-Variable Transmission (CVT) delivers improved acceleration times from a standing start, as well as, in-gear response across the rev range to give improved overtaking performance. Transmission shift quality, kick-down feel and downshift response are all improved, as is fuel economy from friction reduction applications and overall ratio expansion.

Safety

The new Outlander retains its predecessor’s outstanding safety and environmental performance through the use of an intelligent four-wheel drive system, passive safety technology as well as fuel-efficient engine technology.

The new Outlander comes fully equipped with front driver and passenger airbags, side, curtain and knee protection airbags. Its Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) body structure is further bolstered with active safety features including Traction Control and Active Stability Control (ASC), ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Hill Start Assist.

Thanks to its combination of active and passive safety features, the all-new Outlander is given the five-star Euro NCAP safety rating.

The new Mitsubishi Outlander 2.4L comes with an unsurpassed five-year unlimited mileage warranty and a ten-year engine warranty from Cycle & Carriage Automotive Pte Limited.
