Mitsubishi to Launch 2016 Outlander SUV

After the recent news of Japan's willingness to reengage in economic activity with Iran, Mitsubishi's local representative, Arian Motor Co. has announced a new version of the Mitsubishi Outlander, a high-chassis sports utility vehicle.
The 2016 model is not entirely different from previous iterations and the untrained eye will struggle to see the difference. However, Mitsubishi claims that they have tweaked the vehicle more than just putting a large chrome grill on the bonnet.
Other changes include more sound insulation, a new front suspension and rear differential dampers, assisted driving and a new steering wheel shape.
Outlander offers four trim levels: ES, SE, SEL and GT. The entry-level ES is available with only front-wheel drive while the GT boasts standard all-wheel drive and a V-6 engine (may not be available in Iran). The others are equipped with four-cylinder engines.
SE and SEL trims offer a choice of front- or all-wheel drive.
Power is delivered by a 166-horsepower four-cylinder engine with 162 lb.-ft. of torque. It's not particularly fast, with a manufacturer's estimate of 0 to 100 km/h in about 10 seconds with a full tank of fuel and two passengers.
The new Outlander's forte, however, is precise handling and quiet long-distance cruising. It is unusually silent inside with negligible intrusion of road, mechanical or wind noise.
Financial Tribune contacted Arian motors for confirmation on the delivery or price of the new version of Outlander, but the representatives were unavailable or unwilling to comment.
