REAL PEOPLE MOTORING: NEW MITSUBISHI IS OUTSTANDING.

Byline: Brian Twomey

MITSUBISHI Motors will use the 2006 Paris Motor Show to launch its all-new mid-sized 4x4, the Outlander Sport. Currently the best selling SUV in Japan since its launch there last year the Outlander comes to Europe with a restyled grille, minor detail improvements so it better suits European road conditions and a Volkswagen-sourced, 2 litre 16 valve common-rail diesel engine which produces 138bhp, the Outlander uses a 6-speed gearbox.

The interior utilises a clever third row seating system, dubbed Hide and Seat, and a split rear tailgate while the 4.64 metre length puts the Outlander in the medium sized 4x4 class.

Outlander also uses new four-wheel-drive technology developed from Mitsubishi's involvement in motor sport. Ireland has said that the new Outlander will be launched in Ireland in February 2007 and they will have pricing and specification details closer to that date.
