The Mitsubishi Outlander has made a comeback in the Indian car market after a 6-year hiatus and is now bigger than ever before. What started as a mid-size performance crossover SUV has now evolved into a full-size seven-seater SUV and carries the price tag of Rs 31.95 lakhs, ex-showroom Mumbai.
The exterior design takes a few cues from the new global design style of the Japanese car maker for the Indian market. It continues with its rounded boxy shape and has a prominent twin-slat grille in the front. Everything from the headlamps, DRLs and tail lamps are LED and it gets premium chrome inserts across the body. The SUV sits on 16-inch wheels wrapped in 215/70 section tyres.
The cabin is fully loaded up with everything that is expected of a car in this part of the market. This includes seven airbags, black and beige interiors with leather upholstery, Rockford Fosgate touchscreen system, rain sensing wipers, dual zone climate control and keyless entry. The interior is wrapped in leather and the driver seat gets electric adjustments. The second-row seats are recline adjustable as well, adding to the comfort levels in the cabin.
Powering this Outlander is a 2.4-litre petrol producing 165bhp/222Nm of torque. You get AWD on demand, electronic differential lock and a CVT with paddle shifters. The package includes ABS with EBD, hill-start assist as well as a stability control programme.
The Outlander takes on petrol powered versions of the Toyota Fortuner, upcoming Honda CR-V and the Skoda Superb. At this price tag, it also competes with the diesel-only Ford Endeavour, the erstwhile Isuzu MU-X and entry-level premium brands like the Audi A3 and the Mercedes-Benz CLA.
