Mitsubishi Outlander 2017 Price in India

Model Name Estimated Ex-Showroom Price
Mitsubishi Outlander Rs. 30 lakh

Since Mitsubishi will be importing the Outlander as a CBU, it will be expensive. Expect the Mitsubishi Outlander India 2017 price to be around Rs. 30 lakh. At this price point, it will rival everything from the Volkswagen Tiguan to the Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour.

Mitsubishi Outlander India 2017 – Exterior Design

The Outlander boasts a crossover profile. It is longer than other crossovers such as the Tucson and CRV and can accommodate seven passengers. The front end is characterised by the generous use of chrome in the grille and bumper. IN comparison, the rear end isn’t as flashy with a restrained usage of chrome. Like most new products these days, this one too gets LED DRLs, LED tail lamps and projector headlamps. The India-spec Outlander is likely to come with 17-inch alloys. Overall, the Outlander is actually a good looking crossover. However, Indian car buyers prefer their SUVs a bit more macho and imposing, which means the Outlander could find it difficult to attract buyers in this price segment.

Mitsubishi’s Outlander has been absent from the Indian market for a few years now. Although the Pajero Sport still manages to find a few takers in India, the Outlander might not fare so well. For starters, it will almost certainly cost than the bigger, diesel engined Pajero Sport. Then there is the issue of a weak dealer network.

  1. Mitsubishi Outlander has always been beautiful to look at as well as outstanding on off road performance. The new vehicle is very good. India must get Petrol as well as Diesel variants for achieving good sales numbers. All the very best to Mitsubishi.
    Mitsubishi must remain in India on their own without any Indian partner that to not like HM as the Product strength is very high, technology is excellent & they should be able to decide their own marketing strategies & dealership development.

  2. I totally agree with Shriram. Mitsubishi has excellent products & technology to take n anyone. Just made MP rove the dealership and aggressive marketing to bring back Mitsubishi to its original brand value

  3. Outlander will for sure have loyal buyers, I have my outlander for past 7 years and it’s an amazing car giving ultimate value for money.

  4. it can if they MFG the crossover locally and maybe tie up with some local Service provider for AFS, In India AFS is very important and yes Indians don’t mind buying brands for a price.
