Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC)
The highly advanced, full-time four-wheel drive system electronically controls the driving and braking force to each wheel. The result is more focused drive power, better cornering and better stability in all driving conditions. This integrated system works through a combination of Active Yaw Control, Active Stability Control and Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS).
More about Super All Wheel Control
Active Yaw Control is a unique system which we invented. It improves cornering by using the brakes to optimally distribute torque to the left and right wheels. So even if you brake or accelerate too hard, you still maintain control.
Stability in all conditions
Active Stability Control uses sensors to analyse the vehicle’s motion and identify any unstable movement. It then automatically distributes torque and braking power to the left or right wheels to maintain stability.
No locked brakes
An anti-lock braking system is designed to prevent skidding. It works by stopping the wheels from locking up during braking, so they're always in contact with the road surface. ABS has been on our cars for years.
Greater traction when you need it
Enhance the OUTLANDER'S off-road traction and stability even further with the new Drive Mode Selector switch on the centre console. Just press it until the mode you want appears in the Multi-Information Display on the dash. Choose between ECO, Normal, Snow or Gravel settings.

MIVEC Petrol Engine
Impressive fuel economy
The 2.0L 16-valve MIVEC* petrol engine offers a compelling combination of punchy acceleration and outstanding fuel economy. The Auto Stop & Go function shuts off the engine at traffic stops, cutting fuel waste and CO2 emissions without disrupting the electronic systems. The engine restarts immediately, so you’ll never be left waiting.
*Mitsubishi Innovative Valve Timing Electronic Control System.
Electric Parking Brake
Applying the handbrake is easy
An electric handbrake switch replaces the traditional lever. Pull the switch up to apply and push the switch down to release. And when you stop at traffic lights, Brake Auto Hold keeps the vehicle stationary even if you release your foot from the brake pedal. To move forward, simply press the accelerator to release the brakes.
A clear view in no time at all
Fine heating elements embedded in the glass will clear the windscreen faster than you can say ‘Jack Frost nipping at your nose’. Perfect for those cold, wintery mornings.
Slip into Sports Mode
A new 'M' position has been added to the CVT*. This puts the transmission into sport mode. So if you want the thrill of a manual driving experience, this is the setting to choose. You can also change into Sport Mode using the paddle shifters on the steering wheel.
*Continuously Variable Transmission is a system that seamlessly changes through a range of gear ratios.
We've increased the diameter of the front struts and refined the shock absorbers. The result is stable, smoother handling whatever surface you're on and without sacrificing comfort.
