The Japanese automaker Mitsubishi has launched its popular SUV, Outlander, in India. The bookings for the car have started at a price of Rs 2 lakh. The SUV is expected to compete against the likes of Toyota Fortuner, Skoda Kodiaq, Honda CR-V and Ford Endeavour.

As of now, the company will only bring the single-engine variant of the new Outlander SUV in India. Mitsubishi claims that it has made over 100 improvements in the design and engineering of the new model.

As for the interiors, improvements have been made in the form of a new steering wheel, an upgraded infotainment system, higher headliner, new leather seats, leather trim around the gearbox, an audio system with built-in amplifier and subwoofer, rear-view camera, keyless ignition and one-touch window operation for driver seat only. The SUV gets airbags for each of its seven seats.

Mitsubishi Outlander Interior

The 2018 Outlander features 16” alloy wheels. It also has new LED tail lamps along with a new rear bumper. The new Outlander comes with Mitsubishi’s ‘Dynamic Shield’ design philosophy which includes a redesigned front fascia along with completely redesigned front fenders, thick chrome belts along the side of the front bumper and on the front grille, slimmer automatic LED headlamps, an ‘anti-trapping’ sunroof, automatic wipers with rain sensing capability, LED fog lamps and headlamp washer. The side skirts also have chrome lining.

The aerodynamic improvements include the gradually inclined roof and a slanted nose, which reduce the drag coefficient by a significant amount. Other changes in the exterior include redesigned suspension, a new chassis, a better electric power steering system, thicker rear door glass along with sound deadening and weather stripping qualities designed for lower NVH levels.
