New Mitsubishi Range Overview & Benefits For 2017

Mitsubishi range strengths revealed as motorists in the know continue to prize these capable, hard working, machines

Mitsubishi 5 year warranty

Mitsubishi Motors builds robust, fashionable, and long lasting vehicles for motorists that demand no-nonsense capability. Options include a crossover that excels in the city, a spacious family workhorse, an efficient plug-in hybrid, an off-road warrior and a pick-up truck. Every model has a 5 year warranty for peace of mind.

Mitsubishi ASX

The Mitsubishi ASX is among the prospects. The purpose of this compact, crossover class, vehicle is to blend off-road styling – and in some forms 4-wheel-drive – with proportions that make it easy to manoeuvre in busy, urban, environments. It is “designed for the city and built to explore the great outdoors”, Mitsubishi says.

The ASX therefore lists manoeuvrability among its primary strengths. This 5 seater is merely 4,355mm long and its turning circle is 10.6 metres. Furthermore, most versions have a colour reversing camera that enables you to park with confidence by a favoured coffee shop. It also far reduces the likelihood of mishap.

Mitsubishi Outlander

The Mitsubishi Outlander is a larger sports-utility vehicle. Its role is to be a practical, spacious, family workhorse. Most versions have occasional third row seating, for example. In contrast, fold the third row/middle seats flat to create a 1,608-litre boot for bikes, play equipment and helping family move furniture. The cargo capacity is greater than many estate vehicles.

The Outlander has other features that make family motoring a breeze. High-spec versions have leather seats that can be cleaned easily if a child (say) spills a drink. Optional extras include the: DVD player to keep rear passengers happy, a roof bar to mount extra luggage, a tow bar for caravanning holidays plus a dog guard. 

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is “The UK’s best selling plug-in hybrid”, the manufacturer says. Its purpose if to blend the strengths traditionally associated with the class - such as off-road capability and muscular, no-nonsense, styling - with remarkable fuel efficiency that minimises its impact on the environment. What better way to ease your environmental conscience? 

Propulsion comes courtesy of the 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder, petrol engine and electric motors. The former ensures the vehicle’s maximum range is comparable to many new petrols. The motors are powered via a battery that is charged on the move by the internal combustion engine, or via s plug whilst parked. The Outlander PHEV:

  • averages 166.1mpg
  • travels 33 miles on electric power only
  • emits no pollution while operating in electric mode

Mitsubishi Shogun

The Mitsubishi Shogun is the “authentic 4x4”, the manufacturer claims. Its purpose is to mix supreme, off-road, ability with a luxury specification that impresses your neighbours. The Super Select drivetrain lets you maximise traction to (say) climb big hills, for starters. Among other things, it locks the differential to spread power evenly between the axles. Shogun strengths include:

  • 35 degree hill climbing
  • 45 degree side tilt capability
  • 700mm wading depth

Mitsubishi quips: “It is likely that your nerve will run out long before this Shogun says enough”. Luxury features includes its: reversing camera, leather trim, satellite navigation, electric seat, heated seats, mood lighting, digital radio, keyless entry system, cruise control, tyre pressure monitoring plus alloy wheels.

Mitsubishi L200

The Mitsubishi L200 is the “prince of pick-ups”, its manufacturer claims. Its job is to be a robust, hard-core, workhorse that survives the toughest environments. Perfect for hard working farmers and builders. Key strengths include its: choice of cab, 2,230mm bed length (up to), 1,060kg payload (up to) and 4-wheel-drive.
