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.
