The stylish new Mitsubishi Outlander is an SUV that makes an instant impression as it cuts a dash around UK cities and towns. The Outlander is also more than capable of handling long journeys with consummate ease. What’s more, the new model offers low running costs and minimal environmental impact.
There’s a muscular finesse and an assured elegance to the new Mitsubishi Outlander. The robust body is softened with understated curves and, from the front you’ll detect a hint of subtle power. Gleaming chrome informs the front-end to enthralling effect, with the grille, headlights, daytime running lights and front fog lamps all benefitting from a twinkling sheen. A chrome three-diamond Mitsubishi badge takes pride of place just below the bonnet.
At the rear of the Outlander, tail lights wrap around its corners and
are bisected by the boot – above which is an expansive rear windscreen.
Not only is a rear spoiler a welcome addition, it also incorporates an
LED stop lamp. Silver roof rails and 16-inch steel wheels ensure that,
from top to bottom, the new Mitsubishi Outlander always impresses.
There are three trim levels to choose from – GX2, GX3 and GX4. The GX2 has plenty of room for five travellers, while the GX3 trims and above have a seven-seat capacity. The GX2 features dual-zone climate control to ensure that everyone on board enjoys optimal temperatures. You are treated to a height-adjustable seat and a steering wheel with tilt and telescopic adjustability to set a comfortable position before setting off. Everyone can relax with space surrounding them, yet ample room remains for luggage in the boot.
A radio and CD player – with MP3 compatibility – is music to your ears, channelled through six speakers. A USB port also enables you to plug-and-play any of your compatible hand-held devices. An LCD display serves up a variety of useful information such as average fuel consumption and the outside temperature.
A 2.2-litre diesel engine with manual transmission offers four-wheel drive, acceleration from 0-60mph in approximately ten seconds and a maximum speed of 124mph. While the pace is there, so is the power, with up to 380Nm of torque and as much as 147bhp. Despite the potency of the engine, CO2 emissions are as low as 139g/km and fuel consumption is as much as 53.3mpg. Automatic transmission is available with both the GX3 and GX4 if you prefer the simplicity the gearbox brings.
Cruise control and an adjustable speed limiter enable you to set your cruising speed and stay within pre-determined speed limits. Anti-lock Braking System with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution helps you stay in control of the Outlander by maintaining traction on slippery surfaces. With Hill-start Assist you’ll avoid rolling back when starting the car on a slope. Front, side, curtain and driver’s knee airbags are installed to offer optimum protection in the event of a collision.
