Mitsubishi marks its return to Singapore with its flagship Outlander SUV - a rugged urbanite with an array of features at an affordable price point.

Japanese carmaker Mitsubishi may have been doing roaring business back in the early 2000s, but the Northward trajectory of Certificate of Entitlement (COE) prices and a lacklustre model lineup had hit the brand hard, slowing sales down to a trickle.

But as a sign of better days to come and a statement of commitment to each other, Cycle & Carriage recently restarted passenger car sales at the refurbished Mitsubishi showroom in early October.

Bold and distinct line such as this one enhances the car's rugged good looks


 
The new lineup now features four models, with the new seven-seater Outlander SUV you see here. The other offerings in its stable include the Lancer EX and Attrage sedans as well as the ASX compact SUV.
 
Flown in direct from Mitsubishi's factory in Nagoya, Japan, the 2.4-litre four-cylinder naturally aspirated Outlander is Mitsubishi's third generation model. It is currently the only variant of the SUV offered here, although an electric plug-in variant is expected to feature next year.

Exterior

Aesthetically, the new Outlander maintains the same muscular stance as its predecessor but with notable updates. Instead of the distinctive fighter jet front grille, the car gains a more urban, twin blade horizontal grille that sits flush with the bonnet's edge. Complementing this 'softer' more cosmopolitan look is a sloping roofline that's not unlike what you'd find in a car like the Volkswagen Touareg.

Other elements that blend the Outlander's masculinity with the urban environment it's intended for include the 18-inch alloys it wears, silver roof rails, silver skid plates, black wheel arches and LED combination tail lamps.

At 4,655mm long, 1,810mm wide and 1,680mm tall, the new Outlander is similarly proportioned as before. Contrary to its generous size when regarded from the outside, it drives like a much smaller, niftier car until the need to parallel park or negotiate manoeuvres in a confined space. But with the help of the reverse camera that's equipped as standard, such situations can be easily managed.
