There are only small changes with which the Mitsubishi Outlander is now heading for 2017. In the interior, the large SUV was upgraded with a center console, which has a full-surface decorative strip in piano lacquer look and a silver-colored decorative frame. On the technical side, the continuously variable CVT automatic transmission has been given a new set-up; the diesel with automatic is now equipped with an electronic parking brake and auto-hold function.
In addition, driver assistance systems are available for the Outlander that customers could not previously purchase. There is a blind spot assistant in combination with the parking assistant. Also new is the sensor- and camera-based collision warning system, which has been supplemented by pedestrian detection. In addition, a high-beam assistant as well as rear, front and side cameras are available, which enable an 360 Grand all-round view.
On the drive side, a two-liter petrol engine with 110 kW / 150 PS and five seats and an 2,2-liter diesel with the same power but seven seats are initially available. Both engines are available as both front and all-wheel variants. Prices start at 24.990 Euro for the petrol engine and 31.990 Euro for the diesel. While the vehicles are available now, prospective customers have to wait until the end of the year for the outlander of the 2017 model year in the plug-in hybrid version. (Wolfgang Schaffer)
