Geneva: 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander image

Mitsubishi has recently introduced the 2013 Outlander model at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, being actually the production version of the PX-MiEV Concept.

After it started its life as the PX-MiEV Concept not too long ago, the new generation of the Mitsubishi Outlander went through some teasing but all of those things are now over and the crossover is finally here, making its world debut during the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander is bringing a slender grille and wraparound taillights, with a rounder front fascia, and some higher quality materials used in the cabin like soft-touch plastics. The new Outlander is able to transport five people, but a third row of seats can be ordered as an option, adding two more to the original number.

Under the hood, the new generation of the Mitsubishi Outlander will be offered with two different engines, in Europe at least, the 2.0 liter MIVEC petrol, which is developing a total output of 150 PS and it has a peak torque of 195 Nm (144 lb-ft), and a 2.2 liter diesel which is coming with 150 PS and 380 Nm of torque (280 lb-ft. A hybrid version of the Outlander is expected to hit the market at a later time. The 2013 Outlander will be launched in Europe this summer and right after that the crossover will go to the United States and Japan.
