Mitsubishi Outlander ACTiV Limited Edition Details Released

Having become a Mitsubishi favorite in Australia for some time now, the ACTiV limited edition for the Outlander is making a comeback in 2011, packed with interior and exterior enhancements meant to please even the most difficult Mitsubishi customer.

To sell in a limited run of only 1,750 units, the ACTiV is based on the entry-level Outlander LS. The addition of several high end features make the model more appealing, even if we are only to judge by the fact that the entry level becomes nearly top of the range, at no extra cost.

But what exactly does the ACTiV have to offer? At the exterior, the Japanese have given the SUV a small makeover, consisting of 18-inch alloy wheels, a chrome accented radiator grille with a black centre, black roof rails with cross bars, fog lamps, a chrome exhaust tip and a special edition ‘ACTiV’ badge.

On the inside, the ACTiV gets chrome handles and silver accents throughout, reversing sensors, hands-free Bluetooth with microphone and, for the 2WD version, air-conditioning and side, curtain airbags.

The limited edition is powered by the same engine fitted on the production version, with no modifications. The 2.4l DOHC 16-valve MPI MIVEC provides 167 hp and 226 Nm of torque at 4,100rpm. The engine is linked to either a five-speed manual transmission or an optional continuously variable automatic transmission.

“This special edition Outlander ACTiV offers a great package to our customers. Already popular for its styling, flexibility and safety, the Outlander is now even more value-packed,” said Paul Unerkov, Mitsubishi Australia marketing manager.
