Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) has finally introduced the locally-assembled Outlander 2.4L, joining the recently launched Outlander 2.0L CKD. The Outlander 2.4L CKD is now competitively priced at RM155k (OTR without insurance) – RM11,720 savings over the CBU variant when it first went on sale in early 2016.

Despite the lower price tag, MMM has managed to introduce additional features to the Outlander 2.4L CKD. New items include 18-inch two-tone multi-spoke alloys, an aerodynamic rear spoiler, 7.0-inch HD touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Air Gesture Control, All Round Monitor (360-degree camera) and Digital Video Recorder.
