Mitsubishi will show up at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show with a new version of the Outlander SUV.
This Outlander looks very outlandish with that weird grille and headlights. But they say it’s a very tough and solid car and has excellent quality. It has a particularly nice interior with high grade materials such as padded surfaces, soft-touch finish, silver accents, gloss black appliqués, plus ergonomic steering wheel controls as well as high-resolution and easy-to-read instrument displays.
In Europe, the New Generation Outlander will offer at launch the choice between two low impact engines (whether in 2WD or 4WD): 2.0 l MIVEC petrol or 2.2 MIVEC Clean Diesel (MMC’s own 4N14 engine) Depending on market, model, engine and specifications, Auto Stop & Go will be available, as well as an all-new 6-speed automatic gearbox.
In 2013 there will be an EV-based plug-In hybrid powertrain added to the range, promising over 800 km of range and CO2 of below 50 g/km.
Mitsubishi will first launch the car in Russia this summer, prior to European (late summer), Japanese, Oceania, Chinese and North American debuts.
