Mitsubishi's revealed its all-new Outlander, with the SUV debuting the brand's next-generation Dynamic Shield face and design language. The Outlander first came to market in 2002, with the 2022 model marking its fourth generation.
Nic Campbell, General Manager of Mitsubishi Motors South Africa, says: "The all-new 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander delivers the equipment, quality and lasting value that Mitsubishi customers have come to expect of the brand. Full pricing and packaging details will be made available once we have details of its arrival in SA."
Inside, the Outlander showcases quality and convenience through class-above materials, and offers seating for seven in the segment's only standard-equipment third-row. A 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and nine-inch center screen relay information back to the driver. Also newly available is wireless smartphone charging capability, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The engineering underpinnings are also all-new. Partnered with a newly developed platform and 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine, Mitsubishi's rally-derived Super All-Wheel Control system comes standard. Mitsubishi says that the newly developed drive mode selector allows performance and grip to be tailored to the conditions through six distinct settings, increasing on-road and off-pavement performance. Even two-wheel drive models are fitted with the drive-mode selector, offering five distinct modes in this setup.
Depending on trim level, the 2022 Outlander can be fitted with 20-inch wheels, Mitsubishi's MI-PILOT Assist driver assistance system with adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist, and semi-aniline leather seating. The integrated navigation uses 'what3words' technology, a windshield-display 10.8-inch full-color Head-Up Display (HUD), Mitsubishi's industry-leading Mitsubishi Connect smart-car system, and a ten-speaker BOSE audio system.
