The all-new Outlander is MMC's new flagship model developed under the product concept "I-Fu-Do-Do", which means authentic and majestic in Japanese. The new model boasts a robust and powerful styling with the next generation Dynamic Shield front face and 20-inch wheels(1), and a refined high-quality interior complimented by third-row seating. Further, safe and secure road performance is enhanced with a newly developed platform, an upgraded electronically-controlled 4WD and S-AWC (Super-All Wheel Control) system.
