[YesAuto News] At the 2006 Beijing International Auto Show, Mitsubishi's all-new Outlander made its domestic debut, which is also a prelude to the introduction of this SUV into the Chinese market.
The new Outlander sold in China is the same as the North American version.

It is equipped with a new 6-speed automatic transmission with excellent acceleration performance and high-speed cruise performance, and according to the concept of AWC (All Wheel Control) of Mitsubishi MotorsS, it uses an electronic control 4WD system that can freely switch the driving mode according to the driving situation.
The body size of Mitsubishi's new Outlander is 4640mm in length × 1800mm in width × 1720mm in height. The front suspension adopts a MacPherson strut type and the rear suspension adopts a multi-link type. Another highlight of it is the use of the paddle-type shift lever that appears in F1 racing. The driver can get plenty of control pleasure through the magnesium alloy shift paddles behind the steering wheel.
