Launched in June 2018, the Mitsubishi Outlander SUV is a rare sight on the Indian streets. In a bid to find more buyers, the brand has now reduced the pricing of the Outlander by a whopping INR 5 lakh, and this SUV now asks for INR 26.93 lakh ex-showroom. The Outlander is a rival to the likes of Honda CR-V and comes with a 7-seat layout. The primary reason for the high price tag is because the Outlander is sold in India as a CBU product, and comes only with a petrol engine option. While the price has been reduced, the Outlander now comes with a 7″ touchscreen infotainment which betters the previous version.
The Mitsubishi Outlander measures 4695mm in length, 1810mm in width, 1710mm in height, 2670mm in wheelbase, 190mm in ground clearance and has a kerb weight of 1602 kg. This 7-seater SUV has a petrol tank capacity of 60 litres. Powering the Outlander is a 2.4L MIVEC petrol engine which produces 167 PS of power @ 6000 RPM and 222 Nm of torque @ 4100 RPM matched to a CVT automatic gearbox with paddle shifts. There is no manual gearbox on offer. The Outlander comes with 4WD system with Auto, Eco and Lock modes.
Features for safety include 7-airbags, ABS, EBD, stability control, hill hold, auto headlamps, engine immobilizer, brake assist, child lock, front and rear impact bars and other standard features which have been made mandatory in India. For cabin comfort, the Outlander offers dual-zone climate control, keyless operation, electric park brake, electric sunroof, rain sensing wiper, leather upholstery, 60:40 2nd row split, removable 3rd row seat, Rockford audio setup with woofer & amplifier, leather wrapped steering & gear selector, etc.
Mitsubishi claims that this 7-seater SUV can sprint from 0-100 kmph in 11.1 seconds and the CVT gearbox has 6 ratios to play around with the paddle shifts. The 4WD system on the vehicle is electronically controlled.
