Mitsubishi Motors may have been quiet for a lot of years in India the Japanese automaker is definitely buzzing these days though a bit quietly. After the launch of the Pajero Sport in New Delhi, the company has silently slipped in a 7 seater version of the Outlander at a price of Rs 19.95 lakhs.
Interestingly, the 7 seater version is actually cheaper than the 5 seater version by a good 1 lakh rupees. Having said that, the third row seats do look a bit funny.
The new variant will be called the Outlander LX and will have the same spec sheet at the 5 seater model. The Outlander 7-seater will be powered by the same 2.4 litre petrol motor that belts out 166.6 bhp of maximum power and 226 Nm of maximum torque
However, by the looks of it, the last 2 seats look very cramped and quite thin to provide adequate padding on long journeys. The leg space is STRICTLY for kids only. The third row seats can be fully folded under the floor to give more boot space. We have a strong feeling that most of the lime that is exactly what they would be doing.
The 2013 Outlander which debuted at Geneva a week back is a proper 7 seater with adequate space for the third row.
