A Synergy Between Reliability-Durability and A Modern Family Vehicle
If you're in search of a vehicle that's safe, comfortable, affordable, yet nothing short of a 'beast' under its bonnet, the Mitshibishi Outlander Sport deserves to emerge.
"In what direction will Mitsubishi be going in the passenger vehicle segment, bearing in mind that present consumers are no longer looking for speed and durability and while those particular qualities have been Mitsubishi's niche all this time, it has now shifted to pursuing vehicles of fine design, comfortable and safe driving character, as well as good fuel efficiency?"
To tell you the truth, his answer at the time was hardly satisfying, until now. KTB's introduction of the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport last month is an intelligent answer. Here's why.
The first feature that caught our attention when the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport was unveiled was its trapezoidal grille design that was similar to that of Audi's. Compared to the nose designs of the two German automaker - Mercedes-Benz and BMW - I would agree that Audi's signature grille design is more dynamic, sporty and agressive-looking.
For some driver enthusiasts, perhaps this is one of the aspects that will place high in relevance when considering a vehicle.
In the two presentations by Rifat Sungkar, Indonesia's own world-class rally driver entrusted to deliver the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport product knowledge, one of the mentioned exterior benefits of this latest Mitsubishi SUV is a design called the 'Jet Fighter Nose'. On that, we would simply agree.
However, about this SUV's overall front exterior, we were particularly drawn by the headlamps. But instead of the design, its function is what became our point of interest. The "Super Wide Range HID Headlamps" system is able to illuminate about 35% wider and longer in range, which will certainly help to provide a clearer view of the road during night drives. Unfortunately, this feature has only been applied on the PX, which carries a price tag of Rp325 million (on-the-road Jabodetabek).
No shame in that, considering that, the most exclusive variant in on-the-road condition, which is currently at Rp325 million, is what we see as another interesting point on this three-diamonds logoed SUV.
Another highlight is the frame and chassis design of the Outlander Sport. Its Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) is claimed as a chassis integrated by a well-built frame, hence it is excellent in absorbing impact as well as providing maximum safety for passengers.
