On this year Geneva Motor Show, Mitsubishi’s new SUV will get a special attention. If you want to read more about this SUV follow this link. This futuristic completely new vehicle with attractive inside look, with the latest super modern technology and exceptional performanse will catch most of the public’s attention. In this article, we will concentrate on older but still new 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander. Even though this model will be sold in 2017, it will be sold as 2018 model.
Exterior and Interior
This family-sized crossover could be a really good choice. Why is that? It’s because of the three rows of seating, affordable price and extreme high safety level. However the third row is much more for the kids, we think that is not a serious insufficient. The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander is actually a seven passenger SUV, and there are four trim levels: ES, SE, SEL and GT. In some resources (www.edmunds.com) we can read that it isn’t very fast as it’s not so fuel – efficient. Every trim level got some extra features and specifics.
The base ES owns a 18-inch alloy wheels, taillights, headlights, cruise control, adjustable driver seat, cruise control, a rearview camera. Also has a six-speaker sound system and a 6.1-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth connectivity, USB port etc.
When it comes to the interior, it is a truly amazing design that gives a high comfort feeling and luxury to the passengers. They used the most refined soft materials. In the front, there are plenty space. The infotament system is build up from the latest technology what includes the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (www.edmunds.com). Headroom and legroom is more than sufficient, just the third road as we mentioned before, suits only for kids.
Engine and Performance
The new Mitsubishi Outlander comes with a few engines. The SE, ES and the SEL trims has a 2.4-liter four cylinder engine. What makes nearly 166 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. The engine is mated with an automatic transmission. They comes as a front and or all-wheel drive. The GT trim level owns a 3.0-liter V6 engine what makes 224 horsepower and 215 pound-feet of torque. This time engineers payed attention on safety features what includes antilock disc brakes, driver knee airbag, front-seat side airbags. We can also read on the edmunds.com that on the government crash testing the all-wheel Outlander got a five-star rating for crash protection, four stars for the front-impact protection, and also five stars for side-impact protection. Overall that is a very good mark.
