With your first look at the interior, you realize that the new Outlander is running much higher quality than its predecessor. The modern design of the instrument, the tidy center console and a good choice of material featuring the Outlander. There are also many practical files, simplifying everyday motorists life.
All functions are easy to use and you can find your way from the start. We also find an ideal seating position very quickly, only the gear knob is a bit too far back attached - at least for people with longer arms.
Due to the high development of the Outlander offers itself in the rear enough head and knee room, only the third row is suitable only for children or very small adults and articulated. The seats of the third Series are easy to fold up and disappear again with a single action just in the trunk floor. Who takes advantage of all seven seats, still has a luggage capacity of 128 liters available with five seats to get to 477 liters, and who is only two way you can look forward when needed on a volume of 1,022 liters.
Very eccentric and the leather seats are comfortable, which can be a self-longer trips complete without back pain. The interior of the new Outlander can thus already be described as a great success, there remains the question to clarify how it looks with the performance and efficiency of the 465.5 cm-long SUV.
Under the hood, the proven 2.2-liter diesel engine with an output of 150 hp werkt (110 kW). Its maximum torque of 380 Nm delivers the powerful diesel from 1750 to 2500 rev / min. To start the diesel engine works quite grumpy, but gives equal the enormous thrust, which helps the Outlander to crisp performance. The sprint from 0 to 100 km / h around 1.6 ton SUV completed in 9.7 seconds, top speed is 200 km / h Despite 27 hp less power than its predecessor, the new Outlander is thus equal to 0.1 seconds and accelerates even faster.
The manual 6-speed gearbox is very harmoniously balanced and designed for maximum efficiency. By Eco button on the dashboard, the Outlander is ever the ideal saving champions. If you press the Eco button, you must lodge with the power delivery but found no difference, but then it rides for a car of this class very sparingly. Although we did not come to the factory promised 5.4 liters per 100 kilometers, with an average consumption of 6.3 liters, the Outlander can still be described as very poor.
Especially, as you will need not have to compromise on driving pleasure. The Outlander has a lot of power in every situation, even when accelerating after a construction site at the end of the highway does not have to turn back, to regain the allowable highway speeds.
The engine performs and his work Wore very quiet, only the road noise at high speeds are a little louder. Here you realize that the Outlander, especially for the U.S. market was tailored, because up to 110 km / h, it is completely silent, only then will the rolling noise louder.
The very comfortable design of the chassis and suspension is also attributable to the U.S. Generally back, but perfectly fits the Outlander. Thanks to the automatic all-wheel drive the big SUV is in fact still very good on the road and also enables high cornering speeds, without the passengers are scared should have known that the car flips.
All-wheel drive is standard in Eco mode, where only two wheels are driven and then if necessary the additional wheels are switched in order optimum grip added. By pressing a button you can also switch to permanent all-wheel drive or even permanent drive with increased power flow to the rear axle.
So the Outlander then also makes off-road looks good and it brings its occupants safely to the most remote ski lodge. The very light, but very direct steering also fits very well with the consistent overall picture of the Outlanders.
With the third-generation Mitsubishi Outlander returned back to the old virtues and offers a very sophisticated and high-quality SUV. The top equipment and good space to make the Outlander an ideal family car and long distance vehicle. Very well done is the 2.2 liter diesel engine, which offers a lot of power in combination with a low consumption.
