Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) recently launched a new, locally-assembled variant of the Outlander – the 2.0 AWD – which slots in below an updated 2.4 AWD CBU. We now bring you a first look video, so you can get better acquainted with the new Outlander variant.

Under the bonnet, the base variant carries a 2.0 litre four-cylinder petrol engine, which delivers 145 PS and 196 Nm of torque. The mill is mated to an INVECS-III CVT automatic gearbox, and sends drive to all four wheels via a four-wheel drive system.

Said system is Mitsubishi’s proprietary Multi-Select 4WD that comes with three selectable modes – 4WD Eco, 4WD Auto and 4WD Lock. Cycling through them is accomplished via a labelled button located just beside the handbrake.

Inside, the three-row SUV comes with fabric seats, keyless entry and start, auto headlamps and wipers, a 7.0-inch touchscreen head unit with Apple CarPlay and a dual-zone automatic climate control system.

The 2.0 AWD model is currently being offered with an introductory price tag of RM139,988 (until the end of 2017), and includes a five-year/unlimited mileage warranty. Buyers will get to choose from three exterior body colours – Red Metallic, Solar White and Ruby Black – the last being new and exclusive to the new variant.
