Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited (MMAL) introduces the Outlander Platinum Edition, offering the quality, safety and versatility the Outlander is renowned for with the addition of numerous interior and exterior upgrades.

Joining the Mitsubishi range in January 2012 and with a limited release of 1000 units, the Outlander Platinum is based on the 2012 model year LS Outlander. The Outlander Platinum is available as a two- or four-wheel drive with the choice of manual or CVT transmission (five seat version only).

Safety has been improved through the addition of a reversing camera and reversing sensors, giving the driver greater visibility and awareness while reversing. The camera monitor appears in the electro-chromatic rear-view mirror automatically when reverse gear is engaged. The two-wheel drive variant also receives side and curtain airbags (already standard on four-wheel drive).

Inside, the Outlander Platinum receives a number of luxury touches including leather seat trim, heated front seats and powered driver’s seat with electric slide, recline and height adjustment functions. The interior styling package adds bright and silver detailing to the door handles, console panel and rear door trim while the addition of Bluetooth 2.0 steering wheel controls enhances user convenience.

The Outlander’s exterior has been enhanced through the inclusion of chrome muffler tip, fog lamps and exclusive Platinum badge.

MMAL vice-president of Corporate Strategy, Paul Stevenson, welcomed the Outlander Platinum to the Mitsubishi range.

“The Outlander is already popular for its styling, flexibility and safety, and this Platinum edition offers customers an even more value-packed vehicle,” Stevenson said.
