The new 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander , like the Montero will be brought in as a CBU (Completely Built Unit), which means the SUV won’t come cheap.

Mitsubishi Outlander Launch in India
Mitsubishi Outlander India 2017 – Launch
|Model Name||Expected Launch Date|
|2017 Mitsubishi Outlander||July 2017|
There were reports in 2016 that Mitsubishi had imported the Outlander to India for homologation. Mitsubishi itself had announced that the launch of the Montero will be followed by that of the Outlander and then the new generation Pajero Sport. As mentioned earlier, the Outlander is already on display at various dealerships. So it is expected that the launch will take place by the end of July 2017.
Mitsubishi Outlander India 2017 – Price
|Model Name||Estimated Ex-Showroom Price|
|Mitsubishi Outlander||Rs. 30 lakh|
As Mitsubishi will be importing the Outlander as a CBU (Completely Built Unit), it will come expensive. Expect the prices of the new Mitsubishi Outlander India 2017 to be around Rs. 30 lakh. At this price, the Outlander will rival everything from the Volkswagen Tiguan to the Ford Endeavour and the Toyota Fortuner.
Mitsubishi Outlander India 2017 – Specifications
|Length x Width x Height||4695 x 1810 x 1710 mm|
|Kerb Weight||1530 kg|
|Wheel Type and Size||17” Alloys|
|Fuel Tank Capacity||60 litres|
|Engine Type/ Displacement||2.4 L MIVEC Petrol|
|Top Speed||198 km/h|
|Acceleration (0-100 km/h)||10.2 seconds|
The Outlander will be powered by a 2.4 L petrol engine mated to a CVT. This powerful engine pumps out about 167 PS of max power and 222 Nm of peak torque. It should be noted that the demand for petrol powered SUVs is very already very low. This factor combined with high pricing and a weak dealer network will result in a rather not so good response to the Outlander most likely.
Mitsubishi Outlander India 2017 – Mileage
|2.4 Petrol Automatic AWD||9-10 KMPL|
The powerful 2.4 L petrol engine with the CVT is not likely to be a frugal one. An overall mileage of not more than 9-10 KMPL is expected.

Mitsubishi Outlander India 2017 – Exterior Design
The Outlander has a crossover profile. It is quite longer than other crossovers such as the CRV and the Tucson and can accommodate seven passengers. The front end of the Outlander is mostly generous use of chrome in the grille and bumper. The rear end, in comparison isn’t as flashy with a very low chrome usage. Like most of the modern day vehicles, the Outlander too gets LED DRLs, LED tail lamps and projector headlamps. The India-spec Outlander will likely come with 17-inch alloys. There is no doubt that the Outlander is actually a very good looking crossover. Despite that, it could find it difficult to attract buyers in this price segment as Indian car buyers prefer their SUVs a bit more macho and imposing, which is not the case with the Outlander .
Mitsubishi Outlander India 2017 – Interior Design
The dashboard of the Mitsubishi Outlander gets a very neat finish and comes with a pleasant combination of black and beige. As mentioned above the Outlander will get a 7 seat layout. It is expected that the India-spec model will come with a touchscreen for the infotainment system. Coming to the placement of the aircon vents, it is slightly unconventional.
Mitsubishi’s Outlander has been out of the Indian market for a few years now. Even though the Pajero Sport still manages to find a few buyers in India, the Outlander might not do so well. The primary reason is that it will almost certainly cost more than the bigger, diesel powered Pajero Sport. And there is the problem of a weak dealer network. Above all, with a price of around 30 lakhs, the Outlander will have to compete with the already popular SUVs like the Ford Endeavour and the Toyota Fortuner.
