Mitsubishi has announced plans to introduce the 2010 Outlander RX special edition in Australia.

Based on the Outlander LS, the RX features a redesigned front bumper, new fog lights, aggressive side sills, a unique rear air dam, and 18-inch alloy wheels. Other styling tweaks include silver painted door handles, a chrome exhaust tip, and privacy glass.

Inside, Mitsubishi added leather and mesh sport seats, "silver painted floor console panels," chrome door handles, Bluetooth connectivity, and a keyless entry system.

Power comes from a 2.4-liter MIVEC four-cylinder engine with 125 kW (168 hp / 170 PS) and 226 Nm (167 lb-ft) of torque. It transmits power to all four wheels via a continuously variable transmission.

Available now with a price of $38,475 AUD (before dealer and statutory charges), Outlander RX production will be limited to 500 units.
