Mitsubishi has introduced the 2013 Outlander at the Geneva Motor Show.
As previewed by the PX-MiEV concept, the production model has an evolutionary design with a round front fascia, a slender grille and wraparound taillights. The crossover can also be outfitted with Super-HiD headlights that are approximately 1.4 times more powerful than conventional HID headlights.
Inside, the cabin is significantly improved with higher quality materials and soft-touch plastics. There's seating for five, but an optional 3rd row enables the model to carry seven passengers.
In Europe, the Outlander will be offered with two different engines. The 2.0-liter MIVEC petrol produces 150 PS (110 kW) and 195 Nm (144 lb-ft) of torque, while the 2.2-liter diesel develops 150 PS (110 kW) and up to 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque. Later on, the company will introduce a plug-in hybrid variant.
The 2013 Outlander will be launched in Europe this summer, before going on sale in United States and Japan.
