2017 Mitsubishi Outlander on sale in Australia from $28,750

September 28, 2016

Mitsubishi Australia has announced the inclusion of more safety features and technology for its refreshed 2017 Outlander, which is now on sale in dealerships around the country.

An optional safety pack is now available, otherwise fitted as standard to the top-of-the-line Exceed AWD variant. The pack adds blind-spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, lane change assist, an around-view monitor, adaptive cruise control and automatic lights.

Mitsubishi says this is also the most dynamic Outlander offering to date, having revised the suspension system, added new shock valves and rear toe link bushes to enhance overall ride comfort and stability.

As before, the Outlander is offered in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive form, with the base model LS, powered by a 110kW/190Nm 2.0-litre petrol mated to a five-speed manual, kicking off from $28,750. Included in the entry level variant is dual-zone air-con, a redesigned centre console, DAB radio and smartphone connectivity. Stepping up to the CVT automatic variant adds two seats and electric folding and heated mirrors.

The mid-range LS ‘Safety Pack’ variant can be optioned with the choice of three powertrains, the cheapest of which is carried over from the LS, while there remains the option of a more powerful 124kW/220Nm 2.4-litre petrol or 110kW/360Nm 2.2-litre turbo-diesel. The diesel-powered variant is available with a six-speed automatic transmission, while the other petrol-powered variants transfer their power via a CVT.
