Mitsubishi Outlander 2023: prices up for Mazda CX-5 rival, LS Black Edition announced


Mitsubishi has announced an array of updates for its Outlander SUV for 2023, with prices up slightly from MY22

Mitsubishi Australia has announced updates to its 2023 range of non-hybrid Mitsubishi Outlanders, with pricing up between $250 to $1000 depending on the variant.

Pricing now starts from $36,240 before on-road costs for the entry-level, two-wheel drive ES. The flagship Exceed Tourer with all-wheel drive is now $1000 more expensive, starting from $53,490 before on-road costs. 

Mitsubishi says that MY23 production of its midsize Outlander began in November, with first Australian arrivals to take place in January 2023.

Mitsubishi has added extra safety technologies to the Outlander for 2023, with reversing AEB and auto hold functions now standard across the range. 

For the base ES Outlander, rear cross traffic alert and auto high beam will be standard for the first time. The ES will also move to a smaller 8.0-inch touchscreen with tethered Apple CarPlay and Android Auto – the previous 9.0-inch interface with wireless Apple CarPlay has been removed due to parts supply issues. 

For higher-specification Exceed and Exceed Tourer models, both gain Mitsubishi’s Mi-Pilot advanced safety system that incorporates adaptive cruise control with active lane-keep assist.

Also featured with Mitsubishi’s Mi-Pilot safety suite is traffic jam assist (adaptive cruise) and speed limit assist with traffic sign recognition. 

The Exceed and Exceed Tourer grades include a new heated steering wheel and sequential front indicators. The top-spec Exceed Tourer model now includes standard rear seat heating. 

The new LS Black Edition 

The LS black edition is based on the LS seven seat variant and features a black exterior and interior pack. Mitsubishi has blacked out the 20-inch alloy wheels, door mirrors, lower front bumper, grille, rear lower bumper and B and C pillar garnishes of the Outlander LS.
