Mitsubishi Outlander ACTiV Special Edition Unveiled

The Australian division of Mitsubishi today introduced a new version of the popular Outlander model. Codenamed ACTiV, the new Outlander comes with several exterior and interior upgrades and is powered by Mitsubishi's 2.4-liter MIVEC engine mated to either a five-peed manual or CTV automatic transmission with Sports mode.

At the exterior, the car comes with unique chrome radiator grille, front alloy nudge bar and roof rail cross bars, as well as with ACTiV badging, fog lamps and privacy glass as standard offered to all buyers as standard. As for the interior, the ACTiV limited edition is offered with standard Bluetooth hands free phone capability and a Rockford Fosgate premium audio system.

One of the most upgraded feature is safety, with the new Outlander boasting driver and passenger front SRS airbags and multi-mode ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution. Furthermore, Mitsubishi’s Active Stability Control with Traction Control (ASTC) system is no longer an option and comes as standard, with Mitsubishi’s All Wheel Control (AWC), incorporating All Terrain Technology and the Active Select 4WD system.

Mitsubishi hasn't mentioned how many units it plans to produce but each of the ACTiV models will be offered with a 10 year or 16,000 km drivetrain warranty and a five year or 130,000 new vehicle warranty, wrote.

Pricing starts at $33,990 in Australia and the car is already available through the whole network of authorized dealerships across the country.

“As a quality compact SUV, the Outlander is already a leader in its class. With these functional and stylish additions, Mitsubishi have just taken the ACTiV to a whole new level of luxury and drivability,” Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited Vice President of Brand and Marketing, Paul Unerkov, said.
