MITSUBISHI’s outstanding new and improved Outlander SUVs have arrived at the Grenson Motor Company in Crewe.
The manufacturer has been working hard to make its diesel and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) Outlander models even better than before, and the dealership, on the Marshfield Bank Employment Park in Middlewich Road, is hugely excited about them.
The Outlander PHEV is the nation’s favourite choice of plug-in vehicle, with Mitsubishi having sold well over 10,000 of them since the SUV’s launch last year. It can travel up to 32½ miles in pure EV mode, there’s no vehicle tax, except on the commercial variant, and it’s exempt from the London congestion charge, too.
And with the new Outlander PHEV, fuel economy has been improved – up from 148mpg to 156mpg – while CO2 emissions are down from 44g/km to 42g/km.
Meanwhile, Mitsubishi has high hopes for the new Outlander diesel, which is its safest and most environmentally-friendly version ever produced. Among the many enhancements, a total of 40 noise, vibration and harshness improvements have been introduced, and the crossover boasts new styling, too. As well as an improved appearance, which includes new-look LED headlamps and new rear lamps, ride and handling have been made even better, while the cabin interior has also been worked on to improve levels of comfort and safety.
Grenson Motor Company Marketing Manager Jim Lewis said: ‘We’re all highly excited here about the new Outlanders, because they’ve got so much to offer. These are fantastic improvements from Mitsubishi, making both models of the SUV even better value for money, and we’re looking forward very much to showing people what a difference they can make to their lives.’
Latest figures from automotive industry body the SMMT, released in October, show that Mitsubishi Motors in the UK enjoyed a year-to-date growth of 62 per cent in sales of passenger vehicles, against a cross-industry rise of just seven per cent. With the launch of these new models, the manufacturer is confident that this trend will continue throughout the year.
This weekend we wil be launching the all new 16my Outlander PHEV and Diesel so make sure you call in and see this all new great model arrive at Grenson Mitsubishi.
