MITSUBISHI MOTORS MALAYSIA Launches the CKD Version of the Mitsubishi Outlander 2.4L AWD

The locally assembled (CKD) version of the Mitsubishi Outlander 2.4L has been launched. This brings down the asking price for the SUV down from RM171,000+ to around RM155,000+ (before factoring in insurance). You're essentially getting it for RM10,000 cheaper approximately for the same car.


Assembled at Tan Chong Motors Assemblies plant in Segambut, Kuala Lumpur it is being sold together with its recently launched, smaller engined, Outlander 2.0L by Misubishi Motors Malaysia and it also has AWD for those that want a little more power and performance over the 2.0L.

In a nutshell, the new 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander 2.4L makes about 167 PS; 222Nm from its normally aspirated 2.4liter 4 cylinder MIVEC engine coupled to a CVT gearbox (with pedal shifters) with the power going through all the wheels (AWD system with three selectable modes).


The SUV seats up to seven and has been fitted with an All Round Monitor infotainment system (with Apple carplay), LED Headlamps with Daytime Running Lights, Sunroof, Electronic Tailgate with anti-pinch, Auto Hold Assist (for inclines), Auto-Dimming Rear View Mirror, seven airbags, and Power Adjustable Driver’s Seat to name a few.

So there are lots of kit given for the price offered. The overall pricing is quite competitive against the usual Japanese and now Korean rivals. But right now, Mitsubishi Motors is currently having a Chinese New Year promotion of discounts up to RM4, 000 for the Outlander. The Outlander comes with MMM's two years free maintenance and standard factory warranty of five years and unlimited mileage.




PRESS RELEASE
New Mitsubishi Outlander 2.4L Introduced

Kuala Lumpur, 5 January 2018- Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM), the official distributor of
Mitsubishi vehicles in Malaysia, officially introduced the new locally-assembled Mitsubishi
Outlander 2.4L SUV today. The new Outlander 2.4L will be sold alongside the locally-assembled
Outlander 2.0L which was introduced in September last year.

4WD System and Performance

The new Outlander 2.4L is powered by a proven 2.4L engine with 167 PS of power and 222 Nm of
torque. The DOHC MIVEC engine is paired with INVECS-III CVT transmission with paddle shifters for
even better control.

With many years of winning experience in the gruelling Dakar Rally under its belt, Mitsubishi is a
specialist in rugged 4WD vehicles. By improving traction on slippery surfaces and stability, 4WD plays
a role in active safety - it is especially valuable on SUVs with tall bodies and a high centre of gravity.

The Outlander comes with an intelligent 4WD system as standard across the range. Unlike on-
demand 4WD systems in rival SUVs, the Multi-Select 4WD system in the Outlander has three
selectable modes - 4WD Eco, 4WD Auto and 4WD Lock - to suit all conditions and terrain.

Safety Features

Safety is the Outlander's strongest suit, befitting its role as a family vehicle. Together with seven
airbags, 4WD, ABS and EBD, Brake Assist, Active Stability & Traction Control (ASTC), Hill Start
Assist, ISOFIX child seat mounts are standard. The SUV also boasts a strong Mitsubishi Reinforced
Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) body construction.

In addition, the Electronic Parking Brake available in the 2.4L comes with Auto Hold Assist function
that allows one to wait at the traffic light or traffic jams without the need to step on the brakes. The
Brake Override System is another feature that works as a failsafe measure, prioritising the brakes if
both the brake and accelerator pedals are pressed simultaneously.

Other helpful safety features include Rest Reminder, which reminds the driver to take a break when
fatigue steps in. The new All Round Monitor in the Outlander 2.4L assists parking and lane-changing
by providing a 360-degree bird's eye view of the vehicle and its surroundings including blind spots on
the central screen with integrated guide lines for Front, Side & Reverse view.

All Outlanders now come with a Digital Video Recorder (DVR) that captures every moment or
incident while one is on the move. The Outlander also comes with security and solar film for glass
surfaces for extra safety and privacy.

Premium Features

The Outlander has a stylish and bold design, thanks to Mitsubishi's signature Dynamic Shield face.
The new Outlander 2.4L comes with Full LED headlamps and LED daytime running lights in front,
plus LED tail lamps to provide superior illumination and a striking look. 18-inch alloy wheels are
standard across the range, while the 2.4L getting a new stylish two-tone wheel design plus an
aerodynamic rear spoiler.

Within the stylish body that is spotted with a sunroof is a spacious seven-seater cabin with ample
room for the entire family. The Outlander boasts best-in- class cargo volume of 1,608 litres with the
second and third-row seats folded. A powered Electronic Tailgate with anti-pinch function in the
Outlander 2.4L provides valuable convenience.

A 7-inch HD touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay functionality allows for seamless
connection between iPhone and car. The screen comes with Air Gesture Control for added
convenience. Other standard equipment includes automatic headlamps and wipers, and keyless
entry with push start button.

With best-in- class safety features, premium and stylish design, and a family-pleasing combination of
space and versatility, the locally-assembled Mitsubishi Outlander with improved value is now ready
for viewing at all Mitsubishi showrooms nationwide.
