Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM), the official distributor of Mitsubishi vehicles in Malaysia, officially launched the locally-assembled Mitsubishi Outlander SUV 2.0L today.
Mitsubishi Motors authorised dealers will be hosting an exclusive showroom event from October 14 to 15 in Peninsular Malaysia and from October 21 to 22 in East Malaysia.
During the showroom event, three lucky customers who test-drive the Mitsubishi Outlander will stand a chance to win a brand new iPhone 8, while the first 200 customers who book and register the Mitsubishi Outlander are also entitled for RM300 worth of petrol vouchers.
The Mitsubishi Outlander is contract assembled by Tan Chong Motors Assemblies (TCMA) at its plant in Segambut, Kuala Lumpur.
The Outlander was launched in Malaysia in April 2016 as a completely built up (CBU) import from Japan, and the new locally-assembled Outlander 2.0L 4WD variant will be sold alongside the CBU 2.4L 4WD.
The introductory price for the locally-assembled Mitsubishi Outlander 2.0L 4WD is RM139,988 until year end.
It comes with MMM’s standard factory warranty of five years and unlimited mileage.
The new Outlander 2.0L 4WD is powered by a DOHC MIVEC 2.0-litre engine which generates 143hp and 196Nm of torque, mated to an INVECS-III CVT transmission.
The SUV comes with an intelligent 4WD system as standard across the range with three selectable modes – 4WD Eco, 4WD Auto and 4WD Lock – to suit all conditions and terrain.
Safety-wise, it comes with seven airbags, ABS and EBD, Brake Assist, Active Stability & Traction Control (ASTC), Hill Start Assist (HSA) and ISOFIX child seat mounts as well as a strong Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) body construction and Rest Reminder, which reminds the driver to take a break when fatigue steps in.
Its exterior features Mitsubishi’s signature Dynamic Shield face and LED daytime running lights, plus striking 18-inch alloy wheels.
Standard equipment includes automatic headlamps and wipers, and keyless entry with push start button.
A 7-inch HD touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay functionality allows for seamless connection between Apple (iPhone/iPod) and car, and the screen comes with Air Gesture Control for added convenience.
The Outlander 2.0L gets front parking sensors to complement the rear units.
There’s also a digital video recorder (dashcam) and security/solar film for all windows.
Three colours are available: Red Metallic, Solar White and Ruby Black, a new colour for the Mitsubishi Outlander available exclusively for the Malaysian market.
