Mitsubishi Outlander

To be launched during the first quarter of 2007 all-new Outlander will allow Mitsubishi Motors to enter the fastest growing SUV segment in Europe - up 54% from 325,000 in 2001 to 500,000 in 2006, with a further 35% growth expected between 2006 and 2009 - and will go head to head, for the first time, with the likes of Toyota RAV-4 and Nissan X-Trail.

Outlander will also preview MMC’s all-new global C-segment platform. Engineered by MMC for world markets and shared with DaimlerChrysler, it will also form the basis of a string of new models in various segments of the market, to be launched within the next two years.
