The new 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander has been revealed ahead of an Australian arrival towards the end of this year.
Built on a new platform, the Outlander now measures 4710mm long, 1862mm wide, and 1748mm high with a 2705mm wheelbase. That makes it 51mm wider, 38mm taller, and 15mm longer than the current model with an extra 15mm on the wheelbase.
Along with additional room, there’s more safety tech. Autonomous emergency braking (forward and reverse), lane-keeping assist, rear cross-traffic assist, blind-spot assist, a surround-view camera, driver attention monitoring and a new centre airbag between the front seats are all included.
Local powertrains are yet to be announced, however, overseas markets will get a 135kW/245Nm 2.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine and an eight-ratio CVT. A plug-in hybrid will also be offered in time.
All-wheel drive models will feature an updated version of Mitsubishi’s Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) system which the brand says will make it more capable than the outgoing model. The system gets improved torque vectoring and a new clutch-based centre coupling.
The biggest changes are found on the inside, depending on the grade there’s a 9.0-inch central touchscreen, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and a 10.8-inch head-up display.
Higher quality touchpoints, wireless phone charging, USB-A and USB-C ports, and better interior packaging are being spruiked as highlights.
Mitsubishi Australia will announce local specs and pricing closer to the new Outlander’s launch later this year.
