Hindustan Motors, in collaboration with the Japan automaker Mitsubishi, rolled out 'Outlander' in India, in October 2008. The Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) had already gained popularity in Japan, North America, Australia, Canada and Western Europe, before entering the Indian car market. The automobile displays good performance both on and off the road. The car offers a host of exciting features to its Indian consumers. Outlander has proved to be a tough competition for other vehicles in its class.

Engine
Under the hood of Mitsubishi Outlander lies a powerful 2.4L, 16 valve MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve Timing and Electronic Control system) gasoline engine, which generates a power of 170 PS @ 6000 rpm and a torque of 226 Nm @ 4100 rpm. The SUV has an all-wheel-drive system. Its CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission), with 6-speed Paddle Shifts on steering wheel, is favorable for a sporty drive on rough terrains.

Design And Comfort
Mitsubishi Outlander flaunts muscular exteriors, with huge wheel arches, deep-set headlamps and a thick bumper, with pushed-in fog lights integrated on it. The front grille and air intake duct in the bumper add to the aggressive look of the SUV. In the rear side, the van-like windscreen is mounted with the car's C-pillar and overlaps over the rear pillar, to give an elegant look. The LED-studded chromed taillights add to the sporty stance of the SUV. The five-seater car comes with a split tail gate, with park-bench seats for two adults.

Interiors
The interiors of Mitsubishi Outlander are spacious as well as luxurious. The SUV offers a host of convenient and comfort features. Its roomy cabin gets a simple but elegant instrument cluster, with a 650 Watts Rockford Fosgate Music System integrated on it. Seats are upholstered in beige leather, which adds to the overall appeal of the cabin. The cabin gets ample boot space, once the third-row seats are folded.

Ride And Handling
The rigid body of Mitsubishi Outlander features lightweight aluminum roof panels, which contribute to its stability. The combination of McPherson strut suspension - in the front and multi-link suspension - in the rear end improves the stability of the vehicle, by absorbing the bumps and potholes on uneven driveways. This, in turn, provides good handling to the driver. Mono tube dampers and coil springs have been provided in all the four wheels of the automobile.
