The Next Gen Mitsubishi Outlander 2022 is here

3 November 2021

The Outlander has earned its place as a tent pole in Mitsubishi’s lineup and a favoured choice for midsize SUV enthusiasts. It's no wonder then that there is a huge amount of excitement surrounding the latest iteration of the Outlander and Simon Lucas Mitsubishi is excited to reveal the next generation Mitsubishi Outlander 2022.

We are pleased to announce that Mitsubishi has pulled no punches with the Mitsubishi Outlander 2022 - and this is obvious as soon as you lay your eyes upon it.


Bold, Modern, Reimagined.

The next generation Outlander boasts a reimagined visual style that pays homage to its origins whilst propelling the SUV's appearance into the future. This all-new modern styling can be found throughout the vehicle with enhanced, higher grade materials making their way into the refined design both inside and outside. These bold new design choices announce themselves as soon as you see the SUV as you’re most likely to notice the new, powerful looking dynamic shield which wraps around the front grille on both sides. Taking notes from the rest of Mitsubishi’s latest lineup, the headlights have moved further down, arranged as a stack, enhancing the redesigned shield and letting everyone know that the next generation Outlander means business. The daytime running lights remain high on the bonnet line but are accentuated further by the higher bonnet design, creating a strong somewhat menacing appearance. The exterior design of the car is sleek and modern, while holding onto that menacing attitude that makes the Mitsubishi Outlander so unique.


Inside the cabin tells a similar story. The careful care in refining the design elements and improving the quality of the materials is present throughout the interior of the vehicle too. You’re most likely to first notice the increase in spaciousness achieved through the wider body of the Mitsubishi Outlander 2022. This increase in space has been put to good use allowing for more distance between passengers and the adoption of a wide center console - a common omission among modern vehicles. Sometimes just having a space to unload your pockets completely changes the comfort levels on offer from a car’s interior. Mitsubishi has paid particular attention to every single touch point within the cabin, from the steering wheel to the drive mode selector, using soft materials and leather to provide luxurious kinesthetic feedback. It’s clear that Mitsubishi has taken into consideration the comfort of the driver on the macro scale, providing a high level of legroom and seat adjustment options, to the micro, with the ergonomic, high quality touch points.


Definitely Not All Bark and No Bite

Aesthetics aside, let’s take a moment to pop the hood and find out what the driving force is behind the next generation Mitsubishi Outlander. The heart of the Mitsubishi Outlander is a 2.5 liter inline-four-cylinder engine that is able to produce 181 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque. This powerhouse pairs exclusively with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The SUV comes to life enthusiastically with its push button start, smoothly delivering power on take off and shifting between gears seamlessly either automatically or by the tap of the shifting paddles on the steering wheel. The delivery of torque is perfect and the Mitsubishi Outlander 2022’s cornering feels tight and responsive. There’s no doubt that the next generation Outlander’s handling is sure to set a new benchmark in its class.


The increased power and performance of the new Mitsubishi Outlander 2022 isn’t its only improvement, boasting a significantly lower emission rationing and higher fuel economy than previous models - offering 9.8L/100km in the city and 7.8L/100km on the highway.


An Uncompromising Approach to Safety 

Mitsubishi have long been trail blazers when it comes to the safety systems in their vehicles. They set the standard that the industry follows, and the Mitsubishi Outlander 2022 is no exception. The SUV features the full suite of Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) to provide peace of mind that you and your passengers are being protected at all times. This includes Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Blind Spot Warning (BSW) with Lane Change Assist (LCA), Forward Collision Mitigation with pedestrian/cyclist detection and Junction Assist, and an array of additional safety features.


A Model For Every Situation

The next generation Mitsubishi Outlander is available in an array of models starting at $41,900 + delivery costs. Whether you’re looking for the 5 seats on offer from the Mitsubishi Outlander LS models, or 7 seats from the Mitsubishi Outlander XLS and VRX models, all versions have the option of either 2WD or 4WD.


The next generation Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV should be hitting our shores some time in 2022. We wait with baited breath for more information and will keep you updated as soon as we have more details. With New Zealand’s continual push towards a low emission future, we’re sure the latest Outlander PHEV will be a popular choice for many Kiwis!
