After a really long slumber, Mitsubishi is now said to be bringing its 2017 Outlander SUV to India. A rival of the Ford Endeavour and the Toyota Fortuner, Mitsubishi will be offering the third-generation model that went global in 2012 with a facelift. The 2017 Outlander will be imported from Japan and will be sold by around 50 dealerships across India, reports Autocar India. A few of those dealerships have already begun to accept bookings for the new Mitsubishi SUV.
The five-year old Mitsubishi Outlander features the company’s new design language. The aggressive-looking font grille dominates with its intricate design and there’s plenty of brushed aluminium and chrome bits all over (front to the rear) and the 18-inch alloy wheels complete the premium look. The new Outlander features a footprint that is similar to the Pajero Sport, but sits lower and is longer.
According to Autocar, this 2017 Outlander model will sell in just one variant and that would be the one with seven seats.
Coming to the powertrain, we get a 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrol motor that churns out 169 hp and 225 Nm of torque. The engine is coupled to a six-speed CVT transmission and it get the latest Super-All Wheel Control AWD system as well, which gets you an active front differential and driving modes.
The price tag is expected to be in the range of Rs 29 lakh which should get the SUV in line with five-seaters from Honda and Hyundai along with the Jeep Compass, making India’s SUV market really competitive.
