Version 2.0 debuts a new high-performance aluminum gasoline engine. Lighter, it provides fuel economy and lower level of CO2 emissions. It is up to 19.8% more economical than the previous version, meaning a user who runs about 1,000 kilometers per month can save almost 500 liters of fuel in three years. The vehicle comes to come equipped with air conditioning Dual Zone, providing even more convenience for the driver and passengers.

All versions have sunroof with automatic closing and anti-smash function, guaranteeing the safety of all occupants.

The Mitsubishi Outlander has gained silver roof rack, giving even more charm and sophistication on the outside, Shark Fin Antenna, shark fin antenna and the practical tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), which warns the driver when it is necessary to calibrate the tires of the vehicle, ensuring safety and efficiency. The Black Piano finish with chrome detail gives the interior of the Outlander a lot of refinement, luxury and sophistication.

The new Eco Mode system delivers even more fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions. Through the button located in the center panel, the driver can activate the economical driving mode where the system acts directly on the performance of the vehicle in conjunction with the air conditioning, and with that, monitor its driving in real time through the control panel. instruments.

The versions equipped with Full Technology Pack (FTP) receive the modern Auto High Beam headlights. With this important feature, it is not necessary to switch between low and high beams when driving in dimly lit places. The headlights adjust automatically, which increases safety and prevents drivers from going in the opposite direction.

In addition, the versions with FTP come equipped with the modern Electronic Parking Brake with Auto Hold. After parking the vehicle, simply press a button to activate the brakes. Auto Hold is practical for everyday use. When stopped at a traffic light, for example, the driver can actuate it to release the foot of the brake pedal. To unlock, just re-accelerate.

Sophisticated design

The Mitsubishi Outlander draws attention to its innovative design with the chrome panel and bold design of the fenders and front bumper with air intakes, chrome-plated fog lights and daytime lighting (DRL ) incorporated. LED headlamps with scrubber complete the look and ensure great lighting.

The airfoil has integrated brake light and, in the top versions, a chrome frieze contours the glasses and highlights the high waist line, conveying the modernity of the design. The new design and chrome finish on the trunk lid integrate the LED flashlights, which reinforce the bold look of this crossover. The fog lights complement the look and give even more safety. The new silver-colored roof rack is integrated into the aerodynamics and the chrome-plated knobs of the top version reinforce the sophisticated design and add a special touch to the outside.

The ample interior space has the Black Wood finish. The steering wheel has an anatomical and comfortable grip, which makes steering even more pleasurable. It comes equipped with integrated audio controls and autopilot, guaranteeing practicality for the day to day.

Besides the modern and aggressive appearance, the New Outlander has several features that make this crossover quieter and more pleasurable to drive. The excellent sound insulation is the highlight, which provides comfort in both the diesel and gasoline versions. The rear shock absorbers have calibration designed to prepare imperfections in asphalt and off-road, generating more stability, especially in curves. Electro-assisted steering generates quick and accurate responses in any situation.

Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, this crossover brings state-of-the-art technology in every detail, such as intelligent adaptive autopilot (ACC), collision risk reduction (FCM), Multi Select traction Trimode II, as well as the unintentional shift warning (LDW), which enhances safety and makes vehicle driving even more pleasurable. All this allied to the electronic system 4WD, Hill Start Assistance and nine Airbags. The presence of these features guaranteed the crossover the highest automotive safety premium in the main institutes in the world, such as Euro NCAP, ANCAP, JNCAP and IIHS Top Safety Pick.

Comfortable and functional

The interior space of the New Outlander features easy-to-access controls for the driver and passengers, such as Dual Zone air conditioning, and the convenience of the trunk with automatic opening and closing.

Convenience and convenience are trademarks of New Outlander. To unlock the doors, simply have the Smart Keyless key in your pocket or in a bag, and press the button on the chrome handle to unlock the vehicle. To start, simply tap the Start / Stop Engine button. When you leave the vehicle and lock the doors, the rear view mirrors are automatically folded. The internal rearview mirror is electro-chromatic, which prevents driver glare and provides even more safety and comfort.

Equipped with Comfort Pack, the crossover features parking sensor, rear-view camera, automatic headlight sensor and rain sensor, which activates the windscreen wiper.

Smart Technology

The New Outlander is equipped with the latest in technology, safety and practicality.

ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control)

Adaptive autopilot goes far beyond conventional autopilot. The driver schedules the speed you want to ride, and if another slower vehicle comes in front of you, the New Outlander automatically slows down and maintains a constant distance that can be determined in Long, Medium and Short. If the front vehicle brakes, the New Outlander follows the braking, helping the driver to maintain the programmed distance. When the track is clear again, it returns to the initial speed.

FCM (Foward Collision Mitigation)

The FCM system has been enhanced and now the New Outlander with FTP (Full Technology Pack) uses camera and laser radar to identify vehicles and pedestrians ahead with greater accuracy. When entering a risk distance, the system activates an audible alarm and a warning light on the central display, prompting the driver for a braking action. If it enters a collision distance, the system automatically applies braking force. If the relative speed between the New Outlander and the other vehicle is approximately between 5 km / h and 80 km / h and in the case of a pedestrian it is approximately between 5 km / h and 65 km / h, the system can help avoid the accident.

LDW (Lane Departure Warining)

The changeover alert system sounds loudly, and on the dashboard, if the driver changes the range involuntarily.

ASC (Active Stability Control)

The active stability control ensures the perfect trajectory in curves and floors of low adhesion, keeping the vehicle in the ideal position.

ATC (Active Traction Control)

Active traction control prevents slipping in bends or starts.

HSA (Hill Start Assistance)

The system prevents the vehicle from going backwards or forwards in ramp starts, automatically braking the wheels and facilitating the maneuvers.

Efficient design

The development of the New Outlander underwent a rigorous refinement process to make this crossover even better since the debut of the first generation. Its construction uses high strength special steels and the modern and innovative design results in a low coefficient of aerodynamic penetration, with only 0.33, which provides a lower noise level, lower consumption, greater stability and excellent performance.

The engines have block, head and aluminum crankcase. The New Outlander is equipped with six-speed automatic transmission with Sports Mode sequential system, which ensures maximum engine torque and greater driving pleasure. In addition, the diesel and V6 versions have the exclusive INVECS-II 6ª / TS, which analyzes each driver’s driving style, making gear changes much smoother. New Outlander 2.0 features new 8-generation CVT transmission and INVECS III with more torque and 6-speed simulation.

For even more sporty driving, Paddle Shifters are positioned behind the wheel. With generous size, they allow the manual shift, leaving the driving sensation even more pleasurable.

Interior – Function and Relaxing Cockpit

Comfort for the driver and plenty of room for the whole family. The interior of the New Outlander is equipped with Soft Touch panel with leather coating and finished in Black Wood. The front leather seats are heated and the driver’s seat is electrically adjustable.

With the practical Dual Zone air conditioner, each side of the interior of the vehicle can have its temperature programmed separately. In addition, the New Outlander has 12 cooling points spread across the cabin, making the interior always pleasant for everyone.

The steering wheel is leather-clad and has audio controls – Style Joystick – plus the Easy Ride autopilot control. The electric steering makes the driving even more precise and pleasurable and the steering wheel also has height and depth adjustments.

The New Outlander brings practicality to all occupants. There are 15 objects, 10 cup holders, eight courtesy lights, and two power points. The instrument panel is modern and has a high-contrast color LCD display with on-board computer and 13 functions.

The second row of seats is sliding up to 250 mm, which ensures even greater comfort for passengers. The third row seats are fitted with Hide & Seat, foldable and embedded on the floor, leaving even more room for the 798-liter five-passenger trunk and can reach 1,625 liters with folded banks.

The large luggage compartment is equipped with the innovative Power Tailgate opening and closing system with anti-crushing. With a simple tap on the driver’s hand-held button, the lid, or the Smart Keyless key, the trunk is opened and closed automatically, with no need to force or leave luggage and shopping on the floor. An extra convenience of this crossover stuffed with technology.

In a vehicle designed for the whole family, the New Outlander has two points with Isofix, which make it easier and more secure in securing children’s seats.

Black Glass multimedia system

All New Outlander technology is also present inside. The complete multimedia system has a 7.0-inch Touch Screen Black Glass screen with easy and intuitive navigation, similar to the latest tablets and smartphones.

It is equipped with GPS navigator, Bluetooth with audio streaming, USB interface with smartphones, CD / DVD, radio, SD card slot, rear camera and Dynamic Information System (DIS) with accelerometer, side acceleration, compass, front tilt and altitude.

Design and security

From the design of the vehicle, Mitsubishi Motors thinks of every detail to ensure comfort and safety. The vehicle was designed under the RISE concept of controlled deformation and the pedals and steering column are collapsible. The seatbelts are three points for the seven occupants and the front ones have pre-tensioner and force limiter.

The use of special steels of high resistance and low thickness contribute to decrease the weight of the vehicle and collaborate to lower the center of gravity and provide more stability.

To ensure even more safety, the New Outlander is equipped with nine airbags: front, curtain, side and knee for the driver.

Proof of all this technology used for safety is the highest classification in three of the most renowned institutes: Euro NCAP, ANCAP, JNCAP and IIHS Top Safety Pick +, which awarded five stars to the New Outlander.

The vehicle is 4,695 mm long, 1,810 mm wide, 1,680 mm high, the wheelbase is 2,670 mm and the ground clearance is 190 mm.

4×4 technology

New Outlander carries all the DNA of Mitsubishi Motors at its best in safety and stability. The traction system is the Multi Select with Trimode II, push button push / leave and three modes of operation: Eco, Auto and Lock.

This system is prepared to meet the most diverse situations. The ‘Eco’ position allows greater fuel economy, since it maintains the system preferably in 4×2. But if necessary, 4×4 traction is automatically triggered, ensuring more safety.

The ‘Auto’ position is an active 4×4, where the new sensors ensure a better distribution of the traction between the axles and is aimed at all types of terrain, bringing more safety in a sporting pilotagem. The ‘Lock’ position is the full-time 4×4, ideal for off-road situations and low grip floors.

The front suspension is independent Mc Pherson, with coil springs and stabilizer bars. The rear suspension is multilink, which ensures greater control of the vehicle, as well as smooth driving on rough terrain.

The rear suspension combines sophistication with performance and allows for a passive wheel tread during a turn, increasing stability and steerability.

A high performance vehicle must have a braking system capable of providing stability and safety. The New Outlander is equipped with four-wheel disc brakes, ventilated at the front, and a high-tech electronic management with ABS, EBD and BAS.

The wheels are 18-inch alloy wheels and 225 / 55R18 tires that ensure the best grip on the racetracks without compromising off-road vocation on rough terrain. The New Outlander also has an excellent spinning radius, with only 5.3 meters, ideal for maneuvers in garages and places with little space.

Colors

New Outlander is available in dealerships across the country in White, Silver, Titanium Gray, Black, D / Blue, Red and Quarts Brown.

For the tranquility of the owners, the New Outlander has a three-year unlimited mileage warranty, in addition to the Fixed-price MitReview.

About Cars, Furniture And Architecture

At the Salone del Mobile, it is not known how much of the experts, the presence of the automotive industry became more decisive with the 21st century: the memory of direct experiences was associated with that of an article that appeared on a remote (ten years ago!) number of “Living”. The architect and lecturer Fabrizio Gallati, at the time, had aroused some minor controversy, with that somewhat perfidious underlining of how a more nourished presence had not at all contributed to clarifying a long story of complex relationships: “or the pillar it is placed right there, where the mirror does not frame it, and splinter the paint of the side, or the sleek lines of the body will make the building look like a static and embarrassed (…) There are not many who have designed both architecture and cars (…) in the few cases where this happened, the expressive languages ​​used in the two cases remained unconnected. At most, there was a minimal assonance between furniture and cars … “

Exactly: or something happened in the meantime? Scrolling through the list of automobile presences in the “out of the salon”, to “witness of attention to the world of architecture and shapes”, meet previews of new car covers amazon or concepts in the pursuit of stylistic and ecological research, or variations on the theme of the logo and personalization of models by young or old designers, up to the simple association of cars and various events: the proposals that most seem to answer our question are still only the “design-talks” and the search for a language at least shared between automotive and residential décor. The question is however complicated. The relations between “containing” and “content”, in the case of industrial architecture, in which the automotive industry will be located, are already at the origins a mix of practical needs, of “paternalistic magniloquence” (R. Raja- “Architecture: history, meaning and project “) and tensions – immediate! – between the architect’s idea of ​​architecture and that of architects. “The engines were wild beasts, which created anxiety for the unknown; to appease these new demons, the most solicitous of the first industrialists were careful to adopt a classical architectural style in line with tradition, for the public façade of their factories. “(G.Darley-” Factories, Origins and Development of Industrial Architecture “).

However, the steam engine allowed it to free itself from direct dependence on water and wind and to place the plant close to raw materials and communication and distribution channels. On the other hand, the growing dimensions of the work machines required new and larger environments, safer and in a relatively close future illuminated by gas light. At the beginning of the 19th century the Palladian style was abandoned for a return to functionality and solidity; the keystone for further transformations will be iron, used since the middle of the century for the same production tools, while between the end of the nineteenth century and the 1920s, reinforced concrete and the Fordist factory, with its assembly lines and the new spaces that they require, make the transition to the industrial scene of the last century. “The specific nature of the organization of the industrial process determines the plan and the form of construction” (R. Raja). With iron and cement “revolutionary bearing structures are possible, while the building’s shape and structure tend to become one.” And the building site itself becomes – like the factory – “a place where prefabricated pieces produced in series are mounted elsewhere , while the building is inspired by the logic of its destination, with large windows, clean and simple lines and the disappearance of that architectural lie that are the arches “, so, at least, the prophets of functionalism. “Behind” this, obviously, the problem of repetitive and dehumanizing work, as Chaplin said in “Modern Times”: but, “before”, the passage “to the neocapitalist phase of dialogue and confrontation with the” fine arts “and design, always with a view to recovering productivity and economic and social advantage “. It is still Raja, who notices how the architect is called upon again and only to give “artistic dignity” to a rigid plant in itself.

And in fact, electricity and motor vehicles, symbols of the new era, “are produced in steel and reinforced concrete buildings built according to the latest technical findings but buried under classic masonry cladding and conventional ornaments, recovered from civil architecture and art contemporary, for the purpose of completely exterior decorum. In the three months since I bought my 2015 Nissan LEAF, I showed it to friends and neighbors. To date, in the course of my research, which I admit is not scientific, the first question everyone asks me is: ” how long does the battery last ?”. Not a few people, not most, but all the ones I’ve invited to take a ride on my car have asked me the same question. They usually continue explaining that they must regularly replace their cell phone’s battery, and then imagine that the same applies to the batteries of an electric car. ” Overcome, do they deal with issues such as autonomy , recharging time and regenerative braking . This question highlights one of the main barriers to the spread of electric cars , which manufacturers are not tackling with sufficient decision. If the average buyer is worried by the prospect of spending thousands of dollars after a few years to buy a new battery, this simple fact will weaken his desire to join the movement in favor of electric cars. Similarly, most people who consider buying a used electric car will probably have similar concerns. Most supporters of electric cars have left these problems behind. There are not many stories about people forced to replace their batteries on the Internet. I confess I did not think much about it. The Nissan guarantees the battery of my car for eight years, and then I have five years before even starting to think about replacing it.

Given the modest demands I put on my car – less than two thousand miles in three months since I bought it – I am quite confident that the car will guarantee me ten years of faithful service. This is equivalent to about a thousand dollars a year based on the price I paid for it. Even though I will have to throw it away, I will still have saved money compared to a traditional car with a petrol or diesel engine. Why worry about what could or could happen? There is no need to worry about the life of the batteries if the car is a Tesla. According to Tesloop’s experience, it is possible to drive 300,000 miles before the battery begins to degrade significantly. The Nissan is still shrouded in a sort of fog created by the poor performance that the first LEAF batteries have had in hot and dry climates like those of Phoenix. Urban legends are hard to die and those problems will remain forever on the internet. But I have not yet heard of second-generation Nissan batteries that have had the same problems.

Understanding the Guess-O-Meter (Forecast)

One of the characteristics of an electric car that requires a certain adaptation is the indicator of autonomy , often indicated by drivers of electric cars such as Guess-O-Mete r ( Previsometro ). This nickname is actually appropriate. Part of the battery management algorithm tries to estimate how many miles of battery life remain based on various factors, including temperature. When I finish loading my LEAF, I always start the day with a range of between 89 and 94 miles. If I turn on the heater it immediately drops to 80 miles, even before the wheels start turning. The same happens if I turn on the air conditioning. The autonomy meter is really nothing more than an estimate. The car does not know in advance whether it will go downhill or uphill. He does not know if he will travel a highway or the streets of a city. The only thing the driver can do is monitor the situation and be ready to find a charging station or go home when needed. The autonomy meter is a guide . The answer to “how much can you go on with a single recharge” is, really, “depends”. It is true, however, that even the fuel gauge of conventional cars is not so precise. Usually the hand remains attached to the full tank indicator, arousing in us the illusion that our car is suddenly enjoying unlimited autonomy. Then it sinks from a quarter tank to the reserve indicator in less than ten miles, destroying our hopes again. I found that the autonomy meter tends to fall rather quickly when I start driving with full battery, but when I enter the last third of the safety level, the miles of remaining battery life do not seem to decrease at the same speed. As is the case with the petrol gauge, every autonomy meter has its quirks and its faults, which we will get used to as we drive the vehicle.

Get used to the new normality

In the three months I spent with my LEAF, I can really say I enjoyed driving it. I can not wait to visit some places on it, as long as they are not more than forty miles from my house. Fortunately, this category includes all my driving needs. I find myself turning off the heating on cold mornings when the cockpit is warmed up. And I practice practicing departures and braking sweets, just as they had taught me to do at the driving school in the last century. But there’s another thing I’ve discovered and like, about driving an electric car. This morning the pumpkins, here in New England, were covered in ice. My wife and I both had to go out, but in two separate cars. The defrost of my LEAF freed my windshield in about two minutes. My wife was still in the driveway, waiting for the engine of her car to produce some heat. Fantastic. I have only one regret related to having bought an electric car. I wish I had done it before! Without the past, there is no future. Here are fifteen houses that have made the history of the automobile world born more than 100 years ago. Nowadays, the automotive world experiences a very interesting polarization. On the one hand, we have a number of new brands, which have recently started their solo adventure, such as Cupra , DS , Abarth , Polestar or Mercedes-AMG . However, there are some producers who have already blown over 100 candles in their birthday cake, offering the world and us passionate a real story about what the automotive world is. Today’s slideshow aims to celebrate the latter, the pioneers of the automotive industry, who have survived to this day.

Centenary Houses therefore: in this ranking you will not find brands like Bentley or Citroën , who are 99 years old, or Suzuki, which although it was founded more than a century ago (in 1909), did not manage to build cars until the thirties of the twentieth century. they started building cars until the 1930s of the last century.

The shelves of the Giugiaro house are put to the test: the rain of awards continues for Giorgetto who in Rome, at the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei has just been awarded the “Antonio Feltrinelli Award” which is added to an infinite number of degrees honorem, under the title of “designer of the century” and much more.

“In Italy – the archistar Paolo Portoghesi explained – there are many designers but Giugiaro besides being the most acclaimed is also the most humble, because he uses his skill in pursuing beauty to improve the lives of all of us. we have a different perception of beauty but Giugiaro has given a great deal of mine to identify the concept of beauty for all “.

The words of Portoghesi clearly explain why the shelves of the Giugiaro house are yielding … “Giorgetto – continues the archistar – has chosen this path by taking care of cars that have entered the social, in our common life. So, with regards to design, Argan talks about ‘quantification of quality’ in reproducing things that can improve people’s lives.That is, this aspect can be applied in a thousand ways, but Giugiaro is the designer who has applied it better because in his continuous search for concreteness and utility – when he draws everything – he has done school “.

“I am passionate about photography – concluded Portoghesi – and I think about Giugiaro every time

I pick up the Nikon: beauty and utility together, all sensations that objects made by Giorgetto strongly express. Here, in short, is the reason why the Academy of high schools awarded a super-awarded person “.

Giugiaro, you know is not only a great designer, but also a person of great sensitivity, it says right away to feel embarrassed for words Portuguese architect. “My creative thinking that is recognized today by such an important academy – he explains – puts me in awe because I selfishly only did what I liked to do, with a lot of work and a lot of discipline, but the thing I like best the motivation of the award is that related to a project of economic functional, functional emotional: when I design a car I never start from emotion It is exactly the opposite: I start from economic rationality, and then we get to functionality. in the process of my path that conclusion does not give any economic results, no longer speaks of beauty, Here is the secret of the cars, but also of the pots, trains, pasta, telephones designed by Giugiaro. “What I prefer – continues Giorgetto – is functionality and consistency of the project with the regulations to be respected, I refer to the car, which is always included in a security context, for insurance, for approvals, and who buys a machine does not imagine the process that has to be done to get to the final product Obviously this analysis is identical for everything from the glass to the camera, and the analysis of what creativity has to face “. Given the environment, the frame and the frescoes surrounding the Accademia dei Lincei, Giugiaro also traces his life. “I – he says – have been disciplined in the mathematical logic of what I have done: I come from a family of artists, my grandfather and my father were decorators, painters, and when I see the Palazzo della Farnesina and these frescoes, I am stunned. I did not know what the car was like until I was 17 and I did only schools of art preparation, but my father, who had already guessed the change underway after the war, wanted me to do evening classes at the age of 12 to make me to understand that the drawing is not decorative, but has a third dimension: I was immediately directed to the discipline of creating, of drawing, keeping in mind the third dimension, namely the technique. So I did technical drawing schools. And this combination gave me the chanche to find creativity in a world that was looking towards useful things. Handles, cups, etc. “
