2013 Mitsubishi Outlander lets it all hang out[cardvdseller's blog]

2013 Mitsubishi Outlander live at Geneva Motor Show

Despite staying rather quiet last year product-wise, Mitsubishi actually enjoyed a very strong sales comeback, led by its new Outlander Sport compact crossover. That crossover’s larger cousin, the Outlander, has remained largely under the radar for most consumers, with a modest 2010 facelift eking out a bit of sales life for a model that has been making the rounds since 2006. That will change in 2013 with the introduction of this new Outlander, which moves away from the single-frame grille in favor of a more horizontally oriented look.

It isn’t immediately clear to what extent the Outlander is all-new, as the vehicle appears to have some unusually large overhang that suggests a revision of an older chassis, but we understand that this is a new architecture underneath. Offering a size that’s similar to the outgoing model, the Outlander will continue to offer both five- and seven-seat configurations, with the third row reserved for small children. In addition to a range of gas and diesel models available in various markets paired with a new six-speed automatic or manual gearbox, a plug-in hybrid variant is in the cards as early as later this year.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY NEXT GENERATION MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER HARMONY
Mar 6, 2012

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – Eleven years after it first coined the term “crossover”, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) today unveils its third embodiment of this concept with the all-new next generation Outlander at the 82nd International Geneva Motor Show.
After a total of over 950,000 sales (as of end of December 2011 – including Airtrek – the first generation Mitsubishi Outlander) for the first two generations since June 2001, this all-new mid-size crossover is meant to comply with the times – a strategic and innovative premium vehicle, developed around a versatile global platform and borne of a harmonious balancing of:

• Low environmental impact
• Advanced safety
• Comfortable driving
• Clever utility
• Added convenience

This unveiling will confirm the start of an all-new generation of global products for Mitsubishi Motors, consistent with the ambitions set in MMC’s “Jump 2013″ smart business plan for a greener and more global Mitsubishi Motors.

New language
Fittingly, MMC’s complete family of Passenger Vehicles / Crossovers / SUVs will also see a gradual transition to a re-focused design language, as seen with the all-new Outlander. While still being formulated, it is envisaged as an open concept meant to be flexible enough to suit specific vehicle requirements whilst staging Mitsubishi’s famous Three Diamond logo accordingly. This new engineering-driven look can be understood as the new expression of Mitsubishi’s near century old tradition of technology tailored for today’s world.

New shape
Similar in size to the current car, the 4655mm Next Generation Outlander follows a clear design brief where in true Mitsubishi fashion, key directions were for an “engineer’s car” with a “Solid – Safe – Simple” shape, blending substantial look with clean surfaces, as previewed in the Concept PX-MiEV and Concept PX-MiEV II show cars.

Whether its high flanks, raised beltline, uncluttered surfaces, strong shouldering or soft-contoured fenders, the all-new Outlander offers a very comforting sense of quiet protection and safety to its occupants – a quality car of substance devoid of cheap styling thrills and designed for the long-haul travelling its innovative power-train will allow.

Understated yet assertive, Outlander’s exterior design is further enhanced by a slim front aerodynamic grille with stylish hockey-shaped chromed strips seem to be milled directly from solid brass as if to shield the three-diamond logo, in-between the feline look of the sculptured wrap-around headlamps.

This same quality look continues inside the car with high grade premium materials (padded surfaces, soft-touch finish, silver or wood accents,2 gloss black appliqués) gracing a dashboard designed for better driver concentration, including ergonomic steering wheel controls as well as high-resolution and easy-to-read instrument displays.

New harmony
In keeping with Outlander’s forte, the all-new next generation Outlander will continue to carry five or seven people2 in comfort and safety, supported by a powerful electronic architecture. The new Outlander now comes with a finer blend of:
Low Impact:
• With a development of our Mitsubishi petrol and Clean Diesel engines. In Europe, the new Outlander will be made available with a choice of two different engines: 1. MMC’s “4J11″ – a 110 kW (150ps) 2.0 l MIVEC petrol now fitted with an all-new valve train2. MMC’s “4N14″ – a 110 kW (150ps) 2.2 Clean Diesel with many innovative features to include an ultra-low 14.9:1 compression ratio. Further improvements allow for high performance and low emissions.
• With an all-new Automatic Stop & Go system3
• With an all-new 6-speed automatic gearbox.3
• Through weight reduction (optimisation of the body structure, further use of high-tensile strength steel pressings).
All improvements leading to a much better fuel economy and emissions, down to a minimum target of below 130 g/km.3
Advanced Safety:
• With the introduction of Adaptive Cruise Control system.3 This system maintains a safe distance to the vehicle in front, even at very low speeds when experiencing heavy traffic congestion.
• With the introduction of Forward Collision Mitigation system.3 This system detects obstacles on the road ahead of the vehicle and automatically applies the brakes to help preventing a collision.
• With the introduction of Lane Departure Warning system.3 This system warns the driver that their vehicle is about to depart from its lane through a visual warning display and a buzzer.
• With the introduction of Super-HiD “Wide Vision” xenon headlamps.3 Approximately 1.4 times more powerful than conventional HID headlights, they provide a 1,350-lumen beam that shines over an extremely wide area of 80°x 2 in total, instead of the 42° x 2 of conventional HiDs.
Comfortable Driving:
• With now a dual zone air conditioner.3
• A quieter cabin thanks to improved NVH (noise, vibration and harshness).
• A wide and comfortable 3rd row 50/50 split seating, replacing today’s jump seats.4
• High grade quality materials for a more premium D-Segment look & feel.
Clever Utility:
• With a 1.69m long floor when the 2nd and 3rd seats are folded down (+ 335 mm versus the previous Outlander).
• With a flat floor when all seats are folded down.
• And the adoption of a one-piece power tail gate.4
Convenience:
• With a display audio incorporating the rear view monitor system.4
• As so often requested – a tilt & telescopic steering column.4
After this Geneva unveiling, the all-new next generation Outlander will be launched first in Russia this summer, prior to European (late summer), Japanese, Oceania, Chinese and North American debuts.
New frontier
During the course of 2012, MMC will also take advantage of the built-in possibilities of Outlander’s versatile platform & powerful electronic architecture to add an EV-based plug-In hybrid power-train to the ICE Outlander range.
This will be a fully integrated solution, based on MMC’s EV technology and also, making the best use of MMC’s extensive 4-Wheel-Drive expertise, offering a choice of driving modes including:
• Pure (Twin Motor 4WD EV).
• Series (Twin Motor 4WD EV supported by ICE generator).
• Parallel (Twin Motor 4WD EV supplemented by ICE at higher speed – Electric motors assist in powerful acceleration without any gear shift).
When fitted to the new Outlander, the Mitsubishi Plug-in Hybrid EV system will allow for
a range and very low CO2 emissions similar to that of MMC’s Concept PX-MiEV II (over 800 km and a target of below 50 g/km).5
