Updated Mitsubishi OutlanderNew looks and new engine for Mitsubishi's 4x4
20 October 2010
Mitsubishi has updated the Outlander 4x4 with a new 2.2-litre turbodiesel replacing the current 2.0-litre powerplant, a new look and a generous standard equipment pack.
Mitsubishi has announced full pricing and specification details of the 2011 Outlander – which features an all-new 2.2-litre turbodiesel engine and two-wheel drive option for the first time.
The 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander also features mildly revised looks, previewed on the Juro special edition earlier this year.
New 175bhp 2.2 Di-D
Big news for the updated Outlander is Mitsubishi’s new 2.2-litre Di-D turbodiesel engine.
With 175bhp compared with the outgoing engine’s 154bhp, this new motor offers a 14% power increase. And, when combined with the manual transmission, it also offers a 12% reduction in CO2 output.
Entry-level GX1 and GX2 four-wheel drive variants emit 165g/km CO2 with 44.8mpg, higher spec GX3 and GX4 four-wheel drive cars 169g/km with 43.5mpg – while if you pick the optional SST automatic transmission these emit 189g/km with 39.2mpg.
And, for the first time in Europe, Mitsubishi will also offer a two-wheel drive Outlander in GX3 spec, and this emits 162g/km with 46.3mpg.
Pricing and standard kit
The Outlander offers a generous amount of standard equipment.
GX1 (which is a commercial vehicle specification) and GX2 include such luxuries as climate control, factory-fit alarm system, front electric windows, and hill start assist. Pricing for the GX2 starts at £21,549.
GX3 adds 18-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth, roof rails and front fog lights, and features an upgraded instrument panel with colour LCD screen. Two-wheel drive is priced from £22,799, and four-wheel drive from £24,299.
GX4 gets an infotainment system with satellite navigation and more powerful stereo, reversing camera, leather heated seats, Bi-Xenon headlights, electric sunroof and tinted glass. This costs £27,999.
The automatic gearbox option on the GX3 and GX4 costs £1,200 extra, while the Juro special edition is still on sale at £25,999. A three-year inclusive servicing plan is offered for £315 for all models.
