Eleven years after it first coined the term “crossover”, Mitsubishi unveiled its third embodiment of this concept with the all-new next generation Outlander at the 82nd International Geneva Motor Show.

After a total of over 950,000 sales (as of end of December 2011) for the first two generations since June 2001, this all-new mid-size crossover is meant to comply with the times –a strategic and innovative premium vehicle.
Similar in size to the current car, the 4655mm Next Generation Outlander follows a clear design and offers a very comforting sense of quiet protection and safety to its occupants – a quality car of substance devoid of cheap styling thrills and designed for the long-haul travelling its innovative power-train will allow.
Inside the car with highgrade premium materials the quality look gracing a dashboard designed for better driver concentration, including ergonomic steering wheel controls as well as high-resolution and easy-to-read instrument displays.
In keeping with Outlander’s forte, the all-new next generation Outlander will continue to carry five or seven people in comfort and safety, supported by a powerful electronic architecture. The new Outlander now comes with a development of Mitsubishi petrol and Clean Diesel engines.
In Europe, the new Outlander will be made available with a choice of two different engines, a 110kW (150ps) 2.0l MIVEC petrol now fitted with an all-new valve train and a same power output 110kW (150ps) 2.2 Clean Diesel with many innovative features to include an ultra-low 14.9:1 compression ratio. Further improvements with an all-new 6-speed automatic gearbox and Automatic Stop & Go system allow for high performance and low emissions.
After this Geneva unveiling, the all-new next generation Outlander will be launched first in Russia this summer, prior to European (late summer), Japanese, Oceania, Chinese and North American debuts. During the course of 2012, MMC will also take advantage of the built-in possibilities of Outlander’s versatile platform & powerful electronic architecture to add an EV-based plug-In hybrid power-train to the ICE Outlander range.
