The design concept of the all-new OUTLANDER is “Bold Stride”, representing a bold, adventurous attitude and confidence to move forward. The strong, horizontal-themed proportion from front to rear, the contrast of broad and powerful surface and character lines with sharp edges, as well as the large-diameter 20-inch wheels and overhanging fenders that emphasize the wide-body express a bold aura and a sense of presence and stability.

Mitsubishi has used an ultra-high tensile strength steel sheet with hot stamping around the cabin to create a high-strength cabin structure. The newly developed platform greatly improves collision safety performance.
The 2.5L gasoline engine improves maximum output by 8.9 percent and fuel efficiency (WLTC mode) by 2.6 percent over the previous model. Torqueful and powerful at low to medium rpm but smooth and easy-to-handle at high rpm. The multi-link suspension and dual pinion electric power steering achieve high-quality ride comfort.
For the 4WD model, electronically-controlled 4WD incorporating a hydraulic clutch driven by an electric motor is used in the center coupling device. The front and rear wheels can be strongly restrained from when the vehicle is stopped, so the rear wheel drive force is generated at the moment of start off.
This generates power under severe conditions, such as starting off uphill on frozen roads. The Brake AYC (Active Yaw Control) is adopted on the rear wheels as well, making it possible to provide front and Rear Wheel distributed control. Sensors detect the steering angle, yaw rate, driving torque, brake pressure, wheel speed, and other factors to identify driver operation and vehicle status.
The all-new OUTLANDER is equipped with drive modes that allow the driver to select the vehicle driving characteristics that are optimal for a variety of operation styles and driving situations. The modes bring out the high road handling of 4WD models and increase the potential of 2WD models.
When a mode is selected, an image representing the driving situation is displayed in the meter to let the driver intuitively select a mode.
