The Mitsubishi Outlander was born out of the Active Sport Crossover ASX concept car which made its world debut at the Detroit Motor Show in 2000.

How It Looks -

The Mitsubishi Outlander was born out of the Active Sport Crossover ASX concept car which made its world debut at the Detroit Motor Show in 2000. The distinctive broad nose cone is attractive and features a new grille incorporating a larger and more prominent Mitsubishi Three-Diamond logo.

The clear-lensed headlights sit above the deep angular front bumper which houses the front fog lamps. The rugged off-road look is enhanced with 195mm of ground clearance and the lower edges of the front and rear bumpers are designed to look like skid plates.

The rear of the Outlander houses silver-backed light clusters set within clear lenses, a rear spoiler and the Outlander name is emblazoned across the rear door.

Deep side skirts, flared wheel arches, two-tone bumpers, black wing mirror housings, a roof rack and 16" light alloy wheels complete the package.

How It Looks - Interior

The interior design of the Outlander is simple and uncluttered. The T-shaped dashboard is non-intrusive and functional and the silver Evolution VIII styled instruments are housed within a twin-cowled binnacle. The stylish round side air vents are similar to those of the Mazda MX-5.

The black seat fabric has charcoal grey alcantara style inserts as do the doors. The dashboard features a metallic effect padded fabric insert trim.

Infotainment

The Outlander 2.4 Equippe is equipped with single slot CD/RDS radio with 4 speakers. The face-off security panel was fiddly to use - an integral system would be better.
