Local 2016 Outlander range gains more equipment, sharper styling and enhanced refinement
Mitsubishi whipped the covers off the revised 2016 Outlander at this year’s New York Auto Show, citing claims of improved quality, refinement (noise, vibration and harshness) and most evidently, new styling.
Mitsubishi Australia has now confirmed pricing and specification for a three-tier local line-up that will consist of the LS, XLS and Exceed variants, the latter replacing the outgoing Aspire version.
The range opens with the LS five-speed manual from $28,490. Key features on LS models include: rear parking sensors and reversing camera, 18 inch alloys, single zone climate control, front and rear fog lights, seven airbags and a leather wrapped steering wheel.
XLS versions add satellite navigation, automatic headlights, automatic wipers and heated folding mirrors.
The luxury Exceed version completes the range with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, push button start, power tailgate, leather seats with front seat heaters, a sunroof and Mitsubishi’s smart key.
The XLS and Exceed models offer seven seats as standard, and customers still have the choice between two and four-wheel drive along with petrol and diesel engine choices. A new colour, Ironbark, is also new to the MY16 range.
The new Outlander range will arrive in dealers from the 19th of April.
