Mitsubishi Outlander 2.4 4WD now CKD – RM155,000

Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) has announced that the Mitsubishi Outlander 2.4 4WD, previously fully-imported (CBU) from Japan, is now assembled locally (CKD) in Malaysia. The range-topping SUV joins the entry-level 2.0 litre 4WD model, which was launched in CKD form in October.

Priced at RM155,000 on-the-road without insurance, the CKD version is cheaper to the tune of RM16,000 over the outgoing model, and is just over RM15,000 more expensive than the RM139,988 2.0 4WD variant. As usual, the seven-seater SUV comes with a five-year/100,000 km warranty.

Under the bonnet sits the same 2.4 litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine as before, producing 167 PS at 6,000 rm and 222 Nm of torque at 4,100 rpm – 22 PS and 26 Nm more than the 2.0. Also unchanged is the INVECS-III CVT and Mitsubishi’s Multi-Select four-wheel drive system with 4WD Eco, 4WD Auto and 4WD Lock modes. Mitsubishi claims a fuel consumption figure of 12.8 km per litre.

The switch to local assembly has brought some changes to the kit list, including a new eight-spoke two-tone design for the 18-inch alloy wheels (the previous design is still available on the 2.0), a tailgate spoiler and the new 2-DIN head unit from the 2.0, with a seven-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay compatibility and Air Gesture Control. A 360-degree surround-view monitor has also been added.

Otherwise, equipment count remains unchanged, with the 2.4 getting LED headlights, paddle shifters, a sunroof, an electric parking brake, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and a powered tailgate. These go on top of the standard features on all Outlanders, including fog lights, LED tail lights, keyless entry, push-button start, auto lights and wipers and dual-zone auto climate control.

Safety-wise, all models get seven airbags, ABS with EBD and brake assist, Active Stability and Traction Control (ASTC), hill-start assist, a Rest Reminder and ISOFIX child seat mounts on the second row, with the 2.4 also receiving auto brake hold. With the 2.4 now locally-assembled, it now gets a wide-angle dash cam (170-degree view) as well, previously reserved for the 2.0.

Colour options for the 2.4 are now identical to the 2.0, with Ruby Black (available only on the PHEV model in other countries) joining Red Metallic and Solar White, and Grey Metallic dropped from the list.

  • Anyone who complained at the lack of 7-seat offering from Honda’s CRV lineup can always step up to one of these now. Quality I find is lacking from Mitsubishi compared to other East Asian makes but otherwise the kit count is comparable to even Honda’s impressive feat….. just get used to the extra RM740/year road tax differences.

    • I don’t think the price was the major obstacle for buyers but the lack of image, brand appeal and service support may be bigger issues. Mitsubishi is a sunset automaker here. Heck, even Subaru is doing great compared to just 4 years ago where they sold as much as Tata.

      • I been hunting around work horse car and to me this Outlander is sensible to my usage although the looks very straight forward. One thing surprised me is the interior is very very quiet and good riding comfort and Good height unlike 2 other big Japanese makes. Heaps of accessories for price to pay with good further discount. Only thing CVT reliability is unknown and after sales service capability because small population.Finally , embrace the trade in poor value price but I already used to it. Cheers.

    what a shame, even the civic 1.5t can develop more horsepower than this outlander’s 2.4.

      The torque figures are about the same, and maybe even similar torque curves. It’s a heavy suv meant to carry 7 people, and do some off roading. The Outlander in any sensible usage will never see 4000-5000 rpm, so the horsepower figure is useless.

      @Ben Yap are such a HP numerical maniac. A proper way to appraise a good car is to do some research and obtain an overall experiences that a car can potentially provided. If you are so care about HP, why don’t you take Volkswagen?
