MORE refinement and improved functionality are at the forefront of a range of updates to the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander, including the introduction of SatNav and an S-AWC system.
S-AWC stands for Super All Wheel Control and adds active yaw technology to the range topping Exceed model, bringing with it four drive modes; AWC Eco, Normal, SNow and now Gravel.
A new eight-inch infotainment system includes a touchscreen monitor, and Exceed drivers will benefit from navigation technology, no longer having to use their phone. Map updates can be delivered via USB.
Safety technology has also been further enhanced, with the ES 2.4-litre model scoring forward collision mitigation as standard, as well as rain sensing wipers, dusk sensing headlamps and auto dimming for the rear view mirror.
In the Exceed model, the Outlander is the first model in the Mitsubishi range to display speed limit information, sourced from the TomTom navigation app. Inside, the introduction of a power lumber adjustment has improved driver comfort across the range.
Redesigned second-row seats have improved cushioning, offering a more comfortable driving experience for passengers. Passengers also benefit from the introduction of an additional rear USB charging port, and improved HVAC controls.
The introduction of a new overhead console, which incorporates a sunglasses holder, seat belt reminder and passenger airbag cut-off indicator gives the driver quick access to frequently used functions.
Across the range the ES comes with black cloth trim, with piano black door and dash trims, while the LS models have a micro-suede seat trim with synthetic leather bolsters, with piano black and silver pinstripe door and dash trims.
Exceed models have black leather trim, with carbon fibre design and silver pinstripe door and dash trims. All variants are available in White, Starlight, Sterling Silver, Titanium, Black, Ironbark and Red Diamond.
Pricing starts at $29,490 plus on-roads for the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander ES (2WD) manual, and runs through to $46,790 plus on-roads for the 2.2-litre DiD Exceed (AWD) auto.
