The Mitsubishi Outlander 2021 has been on the market for a while now, long enough for it to be time to launch a new generation, one in which the Japanese brand has been working for a long time, whose development mules have been hunted on several occasions and of which, Between leaks and statements, we are learning more and more. We tell you everything that has come to light so far about the Mitsubishi Outlander 2021.
Although there will be many changes for the production version, the image of the Outlander 2021 will drink a lot from the Engelberg Tourer Concept, a prototype presented at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show and that illustrates these lines.
Its forms will relax, but we will see an interpretation of the brand’s ‘Dynamic Shield’, with a large front mask guarded by a chrome frame that will join the light groups, quite thin and divided into two parts. The side will be very clean, presumably, the lower plastic protections will not be very bulky and at the rear, it will have a large tailgate that will divide the headlights.
It is developed on a platform based on the Renault – Nissan – Mitsubishi alliance, certainly the same as the Nissan Rogue, that is, the Nissan X-Trail 2021. This will directly influence its dimensions, which will be larger than those of the current generation, which reaches 4,695 mm long and 1,810 mm wide.
Mitsubishi Outlander 2021 Interior
Taking again as a reference the interior of the prototype, something closer to a production model than the exterior, everything points to a very little overloaded interior in which the analog buttons will be reduced to their minimum expression, giving the witness to a surface lower touch screen, located in front of the gear lever, as well as two displays, one for the center console and the other to shape the digital instrument panel.
We can expect an environment with premium materials, leather upholstery, and details such as LED ambient lighting. There will be configuration options in both five and seven seats, with passengers benefiting from extra space thanks to the larger size of the SUV.
The conventional range of engines aims to be supplied by Nissan, while some rumors suggest that the access versions will have mechanics inherited directly from its little brother, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, specifically its 1.5 turbo petrol block.
There will also be a plug-in hybrid variant, as the current generation already has, which will be an evolution of the propulsion system that it uses. There is no specific data, but it is to be assumed that it improves the performance, consumption, and electric autonomy of the current one, which develops 230 CV of power and homologates a range of 54 kilometers in zero-emissions mode (being able to reach a maximum speed of 135 km / h).
Taking the aforementioned Engelberg Tourer Concept as a reference, the prototype used a 2.4 gasoline engine, an electric one, had all-wheel drive, 70 kilometers in electric mode, and 700 of total autonomy.
Mitsubishi Outlander 2021 Technology
It will have the MI-Pilot, a set that combines various driving assistants such as lane-keeping, frontal collision mitigator, adaptive cruise control, digital mirrors, 360-degree camera system, blind-spot control, etc.
The specific date on which we will meet the Mitsubishi Outlander 2021 is still unknown, but the President of Mitsubishi Europe, Bernard Loire, said in a statement that its presentation will take place in the second half of the year. With this in mind, it is not unreasonable to point to the 2020 Geneva Motor Show as the event where the debut is likely to take place.
