After we saw the all new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, the Japanese brand is introducing the new Outlander diesel on the UK market. The car is now available in showrooms across the UK, offering a host of new features to align it with the 2017 PHEV.
A new centre console and shark-fin antenna appear on all variants as standard as well as front footwell lamps, console box illumination, a 12V socket in the boot and rain and dusk sensors.
All variants have a 2.2-litre diesel unit, in both automatic and manual transmission. The manual version has a six-speed gearbox, which delivers a top speed of 124mph, while the automatic variants reach 118mph.
The Outlander Diesel manual variants produce CO2 emission of just 139g/km and are capable of 53.3 mpg on the combined fuel economy cycle. Automatic versions produce 154 g/km and return 48.7 mpg.
The Outlander Diesel Range starts with the Outlander 2. It comes with equipment such as Active Stability and Traction Control (M-ASTC), Auto Stop & Go (AS&G), Hill Start Assist (HSA) and an adjustable speed limiter. Cruise control comes as standard, as does dual-zone climate control and there’s a radio/CD/MP3 player with six speakers and front electric windows. Airbags and 16-inch steel wheels are also featured, as well as roof rails, auto dimming rear-view-mirror and LED daytime running lights.
Outlander 3 comes with a brand new electronic parking brake which features on the automatic versions, as well as a Brake Auto Hold button. In addition there’s dual-zone air conditioning, front fog lamps, rain-sensing wipers, power-folding door mirrors, colour LCD display, leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth hands-free with steering mounted controls, privacy glass and silver roof rails. Manual and automatic versions are keyless operation with a start/stop button.
New additions to the Outlander 4 include a heated steering wheel, LED front fog lamps, blind spot warning and rear cross traffic alert, electronic parking brake, Brake Auto Hold button and a 360 degree camera with steering wheel switch (automatic version only). This variant also has leather upholstery, a heated and electric driver’s seat, LED headlights, Mitsubishi Multi Communication System with sat nav and rear-view camera, as well as DAB radio.
