The Mitsubishi Outlander has been on sale for many years now. However, like any other Mitsubishi product, the Outlander has been over shadowed by other competing products. As a result, the Outlander barely manages to ship 50 units every month. So Mitsubishi has gone the Maruti way and has introduced a special edition of the Outlander called the ‘Chrome Edition’.
On the inside, you get an illuminated and a roof mounted DVD player with screen. This pretty much sums up the Chrome Edition.
The Outlander is a very handsome looking SUV. The mean and aggressive face of the EVO suits very well to the SUV giving it a very distinct image. It looks and feels like a very premium product.
Considering it comes from Mitsubishi gene pool, it has decent off-roading skills as well. However, it has a serious flaw – It only comes in a petrol variant.
In modern times, where petrol prices have sky rocketed and even little hatchbacks like Swift are bought in diesel (Swift, Vista and Figo are diesel 8/10 times), driving a big and heavy SUV like Outlander in petrol doesn’t seem like a wise decision.
In such a scenario, if they really want the Outlander to succeed, introducing a diesel variant instead of minor cosmetic changes makes more sense. Don’t you guys think so?
