The much-anticipated fourth generation Mitsubishi Outlander flagship SUV made its national debut at a ceremony hosted by authorised general distributor, Qatar Automobiles Company.

This premium quality three-row, seven-seater Outlander has been given a complete design overhaul and features rugged performance as well as innovative technology to enhance the driving experience.


The strong, horizontal-themed proportion from front to rear is contrasted with broad surface lines paired with sharp edges and complemented with 20-inch alloy wheels and overhanging fenders that highlight the wide body.

The front of the new Outlander enjoys the distinctive next generation Dynamic Shield enhancing appearance, increasing protection and improving performance. The daytime running lights and turn signals, are positioned higher to provide better visibility for other drivers as well as pedestrians. The lowpositioned head lights provide better distant lighting without impairing the vision of oncoming drivers.

The Outlander’s tailgate has a hexagonal motif that appears to have been cut from one whole surface and T-shaped taillights emphasise the width of the body.


The newly developed platform of the Outlander greatly improves collision safety and achieves a high level of steering stability. For the first time ever, Mitsubishi Motors has used an ultra-high tensile strength steel sheet to create a high-strength cabin structure with little deformation while also achieving weight reduction.

Available in 2WD and 4WD options, the all-new Outlander boasts a newly developed 2.5L gasoline engine which produces an improved maximum power of 181/6,000 hp/rpm, 8.9% better than the previous generation, and a maximum torque of 244/3,600 nm/rpm. Fuel efficiency has also improved by 2.6%, thanks to the eight-speed sport mode continuously variable transmission.

The new model has various drive modes including Normal, for city commuting; Tarmac, for sporty driving on paved roads; Gravel, for high-traction performance and stability on unpaved roads; Snow, for snowy and other slippery roads; and Mud to increase road handling ability on muddy roads, in deep snow and similar conditions.


The linear instrument panel with a powerful horizontal tone gives the vehicle a spacious and roomy look. The interior colour variations of the P-Line feature genuine leather seats of light gray and black. The instrument panel and door trim are the same colour and aluminum is used in the shift panel. Saddle tan accent colour and semi-aniline leather seats are also available as an option for the P-Line. The H-Line features black suede combination seats and Piano Black interior material, while the M-Line offers light gray or black fabric material seats and Piano Black interior material.

Roominess and overall comfort are enhanced by widening the body and increasing the legroom of the first and second-row seats. In addition, features such as seat heaters, three-zone automatic climate control and rear door sunshades are available depending on the trim.

A 12.3-inch full digital driver display equipped with Mitsubishi Motors’ first full-screen, full-colour, liquid high-definition crystal display shows a variety of content on a large screen. There is also a seven-inch multi-information display.

A windshield-type 10.8-inch Head-Up Display (HUD) is available for the first time to project critical information required for driving. The new Outlander enjoys a 10-speaker premium Bose sound system.


Safety features in the all-new Outlander include Forward Collision Mitigation System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Warning, Lane Change Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Driver Attention Alert, Rear Automatic Emergency Braking and Multi Around Monitor.

The front centre airbag for the driver’s seat and side airbags for the second-row seats are equipped as standard and a total of seven airbags are installed. ✤
