Mitsubishi Unveils All-New 2022 Outlander


Mitsubishi reveals the all-new 2022 Outlander—a compact SUV that features the brand’s new design direction.

Based on the product concept “I-Fu-Do-Do”, which means authentic and majestic in Japanese, the all-new Outlander is meant to convey rugged performance and a high-quality feel to its design. Styling emphasizes its presence with the next-generation Dynamic Shield front face, available 20-inch wheels, and a hexagonal motif on the tailgate that’s meant as a nod to the Pajero.



Riding on an all-new platform, the Outlander uses ultra-high tensile strength steel in its construction for increased rigidity. The multi-link suspension and dual pinion electric power steering also promises better ride comfort, while providing a direct, linear feel.

Under the hood is a new 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to an 8-speed CVT with sport mode. Also found in the 2021 X-Trail, it makes identical power at 181 horsepower and 254 Nm of torque. 



For the 4WD model, a hydraulic clutch driven by an electric motor is used in the center coupling device that varies front and rear torque distribution. Moreover, an improved S-AWC system now integrates active yaw control for both front and rear wheels. And like most modern compact SUVs, the all-new Outlander is equipped with driver-selectable modes—six for 4WD models and five for 2WD models.

Inside, a linear instrument panel gives the Outlander a spacious and roomy look while producing a functional form that promotes excellent visibility. The upper part is covered with a soft padding wrapped in leather, and stitching has been applied to project a high-quality feel. The door panels feature a large area of door inserts, and the same soft padding as the instrument panel and floor console sides is used to create a high-quality and comfortable space.



Interior technology includes a 12.3-inch full digital driver’s display, a large 9-inch center screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and even a 10.8-inch heads-up display. A Bose premium sound system is available, and this one offers a total of 10 speakers.

Unlike other compact SUVs, the Outlander retains its three-row, seven seat configuration which is unique in the segment. The second-row seats have a sliding and reclining function, as well as a 4:2:4 split division, allowing two adult passengers to comfortably sit in the second row even when carrying long items such as skis.



In terms of safety, the Outlander gets Mitsubishi’s MI-PILOT Assist which integrates adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist, as well as the usual airbags (11 in total), ABS with EBD, stability control, and more.

The all-new 2022 Outlander goes on sale first in the United States this April 2021, with other markets to follow.
