Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) will present the global début of the
all-new Outlander at Switzerland's 82nd Geneva Motor Show - which runs from 8th March through to 18th March 2012. The
new-generation Outlander is built to be eco-friendly and it accomplishes this with fuel efficiency and CO2 emission
levels that are among the best in its class.
In addition to its fuel efficiency and CO2 emission levels, other features distinguishing the new-generation Outlander
include enhanced levels of occupant protection from the adoption of advanced safety technologies and a user-friendly
interior that reflects pure quality.
The new Mitsubishi Outlander will be launched first in Russia this (northern) summer, after which it will be
introduced in other European markets. Japanese, Oceania, Chinese and North American markets will follow. An Australian
release is anticipated late this year.
During 2013 Mitsubishi Motors will also be adding to its line up an Outlander-based "EV" which will use a plug-in
hybrid system derived from MMC’s exciting EV technology.
New Outlander Product Features
Outstanding environmental performance with fuel consumption and CO2 emission levels that are among the best in its
The European-market specification Outlander is offered with a choice of petrol and diesel engines. Petrol models are
powered by the 4J11 2.0-litre in-line 4-cylinder SOHC MIVEC engine which employs an all-new valve train. Diesel models
use the 4N14 2.2-litre in-line 4-cylinder turbo charged MIVEC engine, with a very low compression ratio of 14.9:1, which
meets stringent European diesel emission regulations.
The diesel Outlander (2WD drive train, 4N14 engine with 6-speed manual transmission) will provide a superior level of
environmental performance, with target CO2 emissions of under 130g2/km, thanks to MMC’s "Auto Stop&Go" idle-stop system
and its lighter body weight from the optimisation of the body structure, the use of high-tensile strength panelling and
improved aerodynamics. Furthermore, the new Mitsubishi Outlander will be equipped with an "eco-friendly driving system"
that notifies the driver when they are driving at maximum efficiency.
The new Outlander offers outstanding safety through the use of the following advanced safety technologies:
- FCM (Forward Collision Mitigation System): Detects obstacles on the road ahead of the car and automatically applies
the brakes to prevent a collision (where possible).
- ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control System): Operates to maintain a safe distance between the car in front even at very low
speeds experienced in heavy traffic congestion.
- LDW (Lane Departure Warning System): Functions to warn the driver that their vehicle is about to depart from its
High-quality, user-friendly interior:
- The new Outlander’s interior expresses quality with the use of a glossy black instrument panel, switches decorated
with silver accents and soft-touch dashboard trim material. The new Mitsubishi Outlander also features easily-operable
steering wheel controls together with high-resolution and easy-to-read instrument displays.
- The comfortable second- and third-row seats can be easily configured to provide a number of seating patterns and also
a long luggage space with a flat floor.
- A power-operated tailgate facilitates loading and unloading.
