Mitsubishi has shaken up its Outlander SUV range, with the base model receiving extra equipment, and new safety pack options for mid-range variants.
LS, LS Safety Pack and Exceed variants make up the 2017 line-up replacing the 2016 model’s LS, XLS and Exceed price points.
The entry-level, five-seat LS 2.0-litre four-cylinder manual goes up by $260 to $28,750 but gains dual-zone air-conditioning, digital radio and the latest Mitsubishi’s Smartphone Link Display Audio. The manual is the only five-seat LS version, with CVT versions now all having seven seats.
These include the 2.0-litre petrol CVT, priced at $30,500, which is just $10 more than the previous model despite the extra equipment and two extra seats. There is also a 2.4-litre, four-cylinder, petrol CVT with AWD for $33,500.
The LS Safety Pack variant features a host of active driver assist functions available in the top-spec Exceed, including forward collision mitigation, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beam, rain sensing wipers, dusk sensing headlights and auto-dimming rear view mirror.
Prices for the LS Safety Pack variants range from $32,000 for the 2.0-litre petrol 2WD 5-seater to $39,000 for the seven-seat 2.2-litre, four-cylinder, diesel mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and AWD. LS Safety Pack pricing is generally in line with the previous XLS models (see below for full range and pricing).
All LS and LS Safety Pack AWD now come with electronic handbrake.
The AWD petrol and diesel Exceed models have gone up just $10 from the 2016 model, to $44,000 and $47,500 respectively.
Unseen changes across the range include suspension changes to enhance overall ride comfort, stability, body control and steering feel.
The 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander range is now available at dealers around the country.
