2016 Mitsubishi Outlander teaser Malaysia-02

While we’ve already seen a Facebook teaser of the Mitsubishi Outlander, Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) has now released initial specifications of the new SUV on its local website.

The Outlander, to be launched here in its facelifted form, will get LED headlamps with daytime running lights, keyless operation/push-start ignition, an electric tailgate, a sunroof and 18-inch dual-tone alloy wheels. In addition to that, the multi-select 4WD system (selectable via button on the centre console) is also fitted.

On top of that, the teaser details the SUV’s seven-seats, which we now know will be wrapped in leather. Lastly, the website elaborates that the Outlander will boast “best in-class cargo space.” Earlier, MMM revealed that Active Stability Control (ASC) will be available as well.

The Outlander SUV will sport a “Dynamic Shield” front face – the company’s latest design language. In Malaysia, the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) will not be available, but the 166 hp/219 Nm 2.4 litre MIVEC petrol unit will be featured, paired with a CVT.
