Yesterday, Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM), local distributor of Mitsubishi vehicles in Malaysia, officially introduced the new, locally assembled Mitsubishi Outlander 2.4L SUV. The new Outlander 2.4L is set to be sold alongside the locally assembled Outlander 2.0L which was just introduced in September last year.
Powering the new Outlander 2.4L is the proven 2.4 litre mill that makes 167 PS and 222 Nm. This DOHC MIVEC is paired with INVECS-III CVT transmission with paddle shifters for better control. The Outlander is also equipped with an intelligent 4WD system as standard across the range. The Multi-Select 4WD in the Outlander has three selectable modes – 4WD Eco, 4WD Auto and 4WD Lock, all of which suits a variety of conditions and terrains.
There’s also a host of standard safety tech, which includes seven airbags, ABS and EBD, Brake Assist, Active Stability & Traction Control (ASTC), Hill Start Assist, and even ISOFIX mount points for child seats. Specific for the Outlander 2.4L is an Electronic Parking Brake with Auto Hold Assist function. There’s also a Brake Override System which works as a failsafe to prioritize the brakes should both the accelerator and brake pedals be depressed simultaneously.
Other helpful safety features include Rest Reminder, which reminds the driver to take a break when fatigue steps in. The new All Round Monitor in the Outlander 2.4L assists parking and lane-changing by providing a 360-degree bird’s eye view of the vehicle and its surroundings including blind spots on the central screen with integrated guide lines for Front, Side & Reverse view. All Outlanders now come with a Digital Video Recorder (DVR) that captures every moment or incident while one is on the move. The Outlander also comes with security and solar film for glass surfaces for extra safety and privacy.
Additional premium features that help to distinguish the Outlander 2.4L from the Outlander 2.0L are full LED headlamps and LED daytime running lights, LED tail lamps, 18 inch alloys, with the option of a stylish two-tone wheel design, plus an aerodynamic rear spoiler. There’s also a new sunroof which helps to illuminate the copious amounts of space in the seven seater cabin, and up to 1,608 litres with the second and third row seats folded. Making access easier is an electronic tailgate with anti-pinch function.
As an added plus, the Outlander 2.4L is equipped with a 7 inch HD touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay functionality. This screen comes with Air Gesture control for added convenience. Other standard equipment includes automatic headlamps and wipers, and keyless entry with push start button.
Three colours are available: Ruby Black, Red Metallic, Solar White Ruby Black is a new colour for the Mitsubishi Outlander and is available exclusively for the Malaysian market. The new Outlander 2.4L SUV is priced at RM155, 000 on-the-road without insurance and GST inclusive. Mitsubishi Motors is currently having a Chinese New Year promotion of discounts up to RM4, 000 for the Outlander.
