The most important change is in the operation of the Twin Motor system; now, according to the brand, the response is quicker from the electric motors (60 kW each, about 82 hp). This reduces fuel consumption and emissions levels, which according to the NEDC cycle for hybrids drops from 1.8 l/100 km to 1.7 l/100 km, and from 42 g/km to 41 g/km of CO2. There is no improvement in taxation.
Another important new feature is that the system will have a 100% electric mode that can be switched on via a button on the console. In addition, its range is reinforced by 2 km, being able to reach 54 km in pure electric mode.
In mechanical and technological terms it is worth remembering that, accompanying the electric motors, we find a four-cylinder petrol engine and two liters of displacement, which is capable of developing 121 hp and 190 Nm. The performance is more than adequate, with a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 11 seconds and a top speed of 170 km/h. Towing capacity is one and a half tonnes with brakes.
Mitsubishi claims that the Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) all-wheel drive system has been suitably upgraded to achieve greater cornering stability by better distributing torque between the front and rear wheels. On the other hand, the suspensions have new settings that allow gaining agility and comfort, as has also been improved maneuverability by optimizing the active drift control (AYC).
Thanks to all these improvements to the suspension, the 4.7-metre, 1,845-kilogram SUV will be able to cope better with life on and off the road, without compromising the driving experience.
The equipment is also updated with new material. In safety, it incorporates Blind Spot Detection (BSW), Road Traffic Alert (RCTA), Pedestrian Detection (FCM) or the automatic high beam activation system. In technology, it highlights a new infotainment system with connectivity for our smartphones through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, an electric handbrake with "Auto Hold" function, and a central display in the instrument panel updated.
