Mitsubishi Motors to Debut the New Outlander at the 2012 Geneva International Motor Show
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) will present the global debut of the all-new Outlander at the 82nd Geneva International Motor Show which runs from March 6 through March 18*. The new-generation Outlander was built to be eco-friendly and it accomplishes this as it returns fuel efficiency and CO2 emission levels that are among the best in its class. Also on display on the Mitsubishi Motors stand in a lineup of 13 models (8 on the first Press Day) will be the MiEV House, a model for a near-future 'EV (electric vehicle) lifestyle' that maximizes household energy usage wîth the help of an EV, as well as the fast-selling ASX (RVR or Outlander Sport in some markets) and other models currently on sale in Europe.
In addition to its fuel efficiency and CO2 emission levels that are among the best in its class, other features distinguishing the new Outlander include enhanced levels of safety from the adoption of advanced safety technologies and a user-friendly interior that reflects pure quality.
The new Outlander will be launched first in Russia this summer, after which it will make its debut in European, Japanese, Oceania, Chinese and North American markets.
During fiscal 2012 Mitsubishi Motors will also be adding to its lineup an EV-based Outlander model which will use a plug-in hybrid system derived from MMC's already existing EV technology.New Outlander Product Features
Outstanding environmental performance wîth fuel consumption and CO2 emission levels that are among the best in its class
The European-market specification Outlander is offered wîth a choice of gasoline and diesel engines. Gasoline models are powered by the 4J11 2.0-liter in-line 4-cylinder SOHC MIVEC*1 engine which employs an all-new valvetrain. Diesel models use the 4N14 2.2-liter in-line 4-cylinder turbocharged MIVEC engine wîth a very low compression ratio of 14.9:1 that meets stringent European diesel emission regulations.
The diesel Outlander (2WD drivetrain, 4N14 engine wîth 6-speed manual transmission) will provide a superior level of environmental performance wîth target CO2 emissions of under 130 g/km*2 thanks to MMC's Auto Stop&Go idle-stop system and its lighter body that stems from optimization of the body structure, the use of high-tensile strength paneling and from improved aerodynamics. Furthermore, the new Outlander will be equipped wîth an 'eco-friendly driving system' that notifies the driver when he or she is driving at maximum efficiency. With this system, the driver can choose to drive at maximum efficiency to enhance actual fuel consumption of the vehicle.
Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control system (name for engines fitted wîth Mitsubishi Motors' variable valve timing system).
Target for European model that is subject to final homologation. Models for other countries may differ according to local homologation.Enhanced levels of safety borne from advanced safety technologies
The new Outlander offers outstanding safety through the use of the following advanced safety technologies:
•FCM (Forward Collision Mitigation System): Detects obstacles on the road ahead of the car and automatically applies the brakes to prevent a collision.
•ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control System): Operates to maintain a safe distance between the car in front even at very low speeds experienced in heavy traffic congestion.
•LDW (Lane Departure Warning System): Functions to warn the driver that their vehicle is about to depart from its lane.High-quality, user-friendly interior
•The new Outlander's interior expresses quality wîth the use of a glossy black instrument panel, the switches decorated wîth silver accents and the use of soft-touch dashboard trim material. The new Outlander also features easily-operable §teering wheel controls together wîth high-resolution and easy-to-read instrument displays.
•The comfortable second- and third-row seats can be easily configured to provide a number of seating patterns and also a long luggage space wîth a flat floor.
•A power-operated tailgate facilitates loading and unloading.Source - Mitsubishi
