Default Why cant HM bring this instead of those outpriced SUV's

The all-new 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander

The new Outlander 2007 with phenomenal features for around $20K - i.e ~Rs.9L. Add duties etc. and bring it to around Rs.15L..

* 3.0-liter, 220-horsepower, MIVEC V6
* 2WD and six-speed Sportronic® transmission
* air conditioning, power windows/locks/mirrors, 140-watt Mitsubishi CD/MP3-compatible audio system with 6 speakers, multi-information dot-matrix display, 60/40 split reclining and folding rear seatback, odor-absorbing headliner,cruise control, remote keyless entry, 9 cup holders and 13 storage compartments
* aluminum roof panel, flap-fold tailgate, combination LED tail lamps, dual exhaust finisher and daytime running lights
* Active Skid Control, 4-wheel disc Anti-Lock Brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and an advanced dual-stage front airbag† safety system with roll-sensing side-curtain airbags†

If launched withing 14 lacs its a good buy , anything more than that its a gamble .

1.HM's poor commitment to a product.

2.Lack of effort to constantly improve its products (killed lancer)

3.Poor dealer network incapable of handling such high end clients (some cities)

4.Mitsubushi no longer enjoys premium status in an Indian's mind.

5.Poor/Unplanned launch of Cedia made a bad impression on Indian public.

6.They should stop selling outdated(Old Gen) Pajero's , its only killig their brand value.

7.They need to replace the existing lancer .

8.They should bring in the R A L L I A R T and give us the taste of Evo's perfomance tuning ........am i asking toomuch ?

Its actually time when HM went for a complete overhaul. I wonder why the HM factory is not churning out any self branded cars since the ambassador.

Mitsubishi line-up needs a complete overhaul too.

Better wake up before the leftovers fade away too.

Default Mitsubishi plans to roll out SUV Outlander by 2008

Mitsubishi Motors will be strengthening its position in the high growth sports utility vehicle (SUV) market by launching the all-new Outlander in early 2008. Targeting the semi-premium SUV segment, the all-wheel-drive, off-roader Outlander would be priced between the Pajero and Montero. The existing SUV Pajero comes at a price of Rs 18.8 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) and Montero Rs 31.48 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

The vehicle will debut in complete built unit (CBU) form from Mitsubishi Motor’s Japanese manufacturing facility and will be marketed by its Indian joint venture partner, Hindustan Motors. A senior executive of Hindustan Motors told Business Standard, “The single variant model might be priced in the Rs 20-23 lakh band and would be pitted against the Honda CRV, Maruti Grand Vitara, Toyota Prado and Nissan X-trail. We are planning to have a strong grip in the off-roader segment.”

Isn't 20-23 lakh expensive if its pitted against the CRV, Vitara. I know that X-Trail and Prado are expensive. Ideally the competition would be between the Captiva, the new Endeavour, Terracan (I guess, its going to be replaced with Santa Fe).

Look at the prices of Nissan X-trail and Honda CR-V

X-trail is the culprit here. CR-V followed suit. Bringing in CBU cars at high prices.

the outlander can not compete with cars like the prado b/c the prado fall under a different segment that competes wit the montero. outlander is a great looking mini-SUV (termed in the US market) with some features which are not available in the CRV. its muscular appearence is much better than the CRV. if it is priced correctly, it will be time for the CRV to give up its crown to the outlander. HM should not waste any time in bringing in this beast.

i think the old pajero which has been discontinued in the international market should also be phased out in the indian market too. instead it should be replaced with a much more sophisticated and modern looking SUV like the endeavor (US market) under the same price. the new 2007 montero which is being planned for a launch shouldnt have a price hike. it should be the same and that will enable it to take away a few sales from the Prado.

what happened to the Grandis and the Colt ??

Here we go again - a final entry price that's way above what was initially touted! IIRC, Autocar predicted an entry price of around 15 to 18 lacs, now we're probably looking in excess of 23!

Only HM can do this.. The all-new 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander is the US website for the outlander 2007 version.. Just have a look at the features of this vehicle..Price - $22K.. That translates to approx Rs.10L.. How does HM manage to get to Rs.23L and i am sure they will strip the vehicle of the major features that is part of the product sold in the US.. God help them!

Vehicle Comparison - The All-New 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander is an interesting comparision with the CRV! Just look at the specs!

Dude, on the pricing front HM has been playing smart lately. cant debate on that. Pricing the Outlander in comparison to the segment leader is something any manufacturer will do. The Outlander will be priced to compete directly with the Cr-V.

Its the service quality in some areas and lots of marketing that HM needs at the moment.
