Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM), the official distributor of Mitsubishi Motors vehicles in Malaysia, announced last week that the new Outlander SUV will be launched in early 2016.
Although MMM didn’t specify when the exact time will be, credible sources have shared that the SUV will be launched in February, with a tentative price tag that falls between RM170,000 to RM180,000.
“We are excited to introduce a 7 – seater SUV to the Malaysian market very soon. The Mitsubishi Outlander SUV is MMM’s first model to be introduced with the ‘Dynamic Shield’ concept, and it comes with an array of safety and premium features,” said Mr. Yang WonChul, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of MMM.
Already available in many countries around the world at the moment, the Outlander SUV comes with a choice of either a 3.0 litre V6 or a 2.4 litre inline-four petrol engine. For our market, we expect MMM to offer the 2.4 litre engine which produces 166 hp and 219Nm of torque, paired to a new CVT automatic transmission.
Notable features include 7 Airbags, Active Stability Control (ASC), Electric Tailgate, Sunroof, LED with integrated DRL, 18” Dualtone alloy wheels among others.
