Geneva outing for next Outlander

2012-02-10 10:54

GENEVA REVEAL: The third generation Mitsubishi Outlander enjoy its world debut in March, 2012.

 
Mitsubishi prepares to show its third generation Outlander at the Geneva auto show in March.

The all-new mid-sized crossover will be similar in size to the current model, but will apparently offer more advanced safety levels, comfortable driving and added utility.

It also has a new stylish appearance while, inside the cabin, padded surfaces and soft-touch finishes are said to contribute to the Outlander’s higher levels of refinement. The dashboard is designed for better driver concentration and includes ergonomic steering controls and instrument displays that are easier to read.

EV IN THE WORKS

The new Outlander will be offered in either two- or four-wheel drive with a choice of 2.0-litre petrol and 2.2-litre Clean Diesel turbo.

Depending on the market, auto stop and go and an all-new six-speed automatic transmission will also be available. It’ll also come equipped with an “eco-friendly driving system” that – when selected – notifies the driver when he/she is driving at maximum efficiency.

Mitsubishi also has plans to expand the range in 2013 to include an EV-based plug-in hybrid powertrain that will allow the Outlander achieve a range of more than 800km and CO2 emissions below 50g/km.
