AFTER waiting nearly a month, the new Mitsubishi Outlander range is complete and in showrooms.

The petrols went on sale during November but the diesel variants have now arrived and they could not come soon enough for Mitsubishi.

Like passenger cars across the nation, Lancer sales have slumped. Sports utility vehicles are in vogue and selling in big numbers, making the Outlander (and the smaller ASX) vital to Mitsubishi's sales success.

Prices have dropped across the Outlander range, starting from $28,990, there are three variants - the entry-level ES, the mid-range LS and the luxury Aspire.

There are three engine variants, a 2.0-litre or 2.4-litre petrol, or a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel. Only the 2.0-litre is available with a manual, while the 2.4 is restricted to a continuously variable automatic while the oil-burner is armed with a six-speed self-shifter.

All models have a five-star ANCAP safety rating - which includes seven airbags, stability control and anti-lock brakes long with their associated technologies.

Standard kit on the ES includes 16-inch steel wheels, leather steering wheel and gear-shift knob, steering wheel controls for audio and Bluetooth, rear parking sensors, CD audio stereo with six speakers, climate control air-conditioning.

LS offers a seven-seat option, and also gains alloys, front fog lamps and tinted windows, dual-zone air-conditioning, 6.1-inch full colour display audio system with touch panel and rear-view camera.

Range-topping Aspire offers 18-inch alloys, outer scuff plates and chrome accents on the belt-line moulding, inner and outer door handles, auto wipers and lights, Smart Key with push button start, leather seats (front pews are heated and driver's has electric adjustment) along with wood print accents on the front door trims and instrument panel.

With the Aspire a $5500 Premium Pack is available and offers radar cruise control and Forward Collision Mitigation (detects obstacles on the road ahead of the car and automatically applies the brakes to prevent a collision), automatic tailgate, seven-inch full colour display and touch panel as well as a Rockford Fosgate audio system.
