Mitsubishi Motors officially unveiled the sharper styled, more refined 2016 Outlander SUV, marking a new era for the brand in design excellence, refinement and overall driver engagement.
Distinguished by dramatic new front and rear styling, the 2016 Outlander is the first Mitsubishi production vehicle to feature the company’s striking new “Dynamic Shield” design concept, which gives Outlander a fresh, sophisticated on-road presence.
Inside, the Outlander’s comfortable and functional interior is embellished with a new design steering wheel design and premium grade materials deployed in the seat trim, headliner and interior accents.
Mitsubishi has made multiple design and engineering upgrades to Outlander, including increased body and suspension structural rigidity, redesigned suspension and Electric Power Steering, noise-isolating windscreen and tailgate glass, more sound insulation throughout the vehicle, new dynamic front suspension and rear differential dampers. Additionally, the new generation continuously-variable transmission offers improved acceleration, performance, shift feel and torque delivery.
Mitsubishi Motors Australia Executive Director of Marketing Tony Principe said the new Outlander is an example of the enormous energy and investment Mitsubishi is currently devoting to product development and research and design.
“The smarter, more refined 2016 Outlander is part of a major product and style rebirth taking place within MMC, and reflects the company’s stronger focus on quality, technology and design excellence,” he said.
“The changes to Outlander are more than cosmetic, with numerous engineering improvements made to Outlander’s suspension and steering system, NVH package and drivetrain performance.
“Outlander will continue to offer great SUV functionality, terrific fuel economy and low running costs but will now be significantly quieter, more responsive and even more enjoyable to drive, making it a real stand out in the medium SUV class.”
MMAL will announce details of its local revised Outlander range at launch later this month.
