If you look closely, the headrests are meant to be in the folded/stowed away position and to be enabled only when needed. Seems like the seat height is restricted to the height of the rear glass and hence the need for these high headrests. I have seen this design multiple places (cannot recollect exactly though) and may have to do with some regulations/guidelines.

Ridiculous, more so when you consider the 2013 Outlander made its debut recently at Geneva with comfortable 50:50 split third row seats.

Why Mitsubishi, why?

Outlander 7-seater launched today 20.55 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi.

Hindustan Motors has introduced an upgraded Mitsubishi Outlander 2012. The stylish and sophisticated SUV was launched earlier in 2010. Outlanderís 2.4-litre engine delivers 170-PS power and 226-Nm torque making it apt for both on-road and off-road driving.

The company says that the feature-rich Outlander offers smart specifications such as keyless operating systems, highly capable Rockford Fosgate premium 710 watt music system with 6 CD changer and USB port, row seating with tumble function, split tail gate, paddle shifters and cruise control. High contrast meter combination, leather upholstery and 3-spoke leather wrapped steering wheel with audio controls in the interior enhance the style and luxury quotient of the vehicle.

I find it very innovative from the practical occasional-third-row use point of view.

You might like to look at it as a Jump seat only. Open when needed, else forgotten. Looks clean, doesnt look like an eyesore. Use of the last row is strictly optional.
Anyways 3rd Row is not comfortable in any of the SUVs MPVs etc.

....however, the 3rd row designs in other SUVs aren't as hideous! The first thing that came to my mind when I saw those headrests were Playboy Bunnies

But why would a company in bad shape in our country only bring in the ~20 Lakh rupee stuff here if they're seriously contemplating upping their game?

If you want to get back upon your feet and lose the HM tag blah blah off of your shoulder, dear Mitsubishi, y'all have got to bring down the new face-lifted evo's sober cousin, the Lancer! Period.

Thats right, only better third row I have seen so far, is in Aria. But again it is just better.

Someone spending 20 lakhs and that too on a petrol guzzler will not be bothered by a few lakhs increase or decrease here and there.

This configuration practically can accommodate 4 normal adults and 3 kids. So I would call it just 5 1/2 seater and not 7 seater. This is cheating. Mitsu could have decently offered those toys at the third row as freebee with a 5 seater and reduced the price by a lakh and could have done something to the dipping sales. Perhaps it is the 'tax' factor made them call as 7 seater I guess. Anyway, this is not going to make any impact on its minuscule sales.
Mistu! Yet another disaster marketing.

It's not about a few lakhs here and there. in a limited space no matter how many lakhs you spend you can not get a full size seat.

I like this configuration. My kids sit on child seats so cushion or no cushion it doesn't matter to them. If occasionally I need to move more people I can move them to back seat with their car seats. This way I don't have to live with a minivan size of Alabama.

Agree I can't take adults in third row on a 4 hr drive. Less than an hour should be doable even with adults.

Thse seem to have been added for the sake of making it a 7 seater. I am not sure evn if the children will be comfortable sitting except just for the fun of looking back.
