If they price it along CRV and X-trail, it is going to be another flopshow. In that segment, only CRV has been successful. I wouldn't pay 25L for a crossover SUV from Mitsubishi when I can get a CRV for 23L. If Mitsubishi is serious about Indian market, Outlander should be sold below 20L (on road price).

Any updates more updates on this? Is it worth the wait or is the new CR-V a better option?
I wonder if at all it will launch this year beacuse Mitsubishi will be killing their own 2.8L Pajero which sports around the same price tag. Logically the outlander will be launched once the old gen Pajero is discontinued.

pricing makes an important factor for success or failure of any new launches, for Suv's anything beyond 15L becomes 'niche' and the numbers dont add-up for success and then these importers/ manufacturers feel that they are not selling enough to continue.

@Saahil: Outlander wont kill the Pajero. Firstly the price of the pajero will be dropped to around 16. Secondly Outlander will be priced above 20. How do I know, you ask? well Mitsubishi has planned to be play as a niche market player.

And which is better between the CR-V and Outlander? Check out this links.

"In terms of ride feel and comfort: the Outlander drives very much like a typical sedan. When compared to its competition, I would liken the Outlander to the Honda CR-V; if you are in the market for an SUV/CUV that drives very much like a car, the Outlander should be very near the top of your list."

Sorry it still doesn't explain how you believe that the Pajero price will be dropped to around 16L.

Launching a good product is not enough. If that was the case, Palio would be one of the most successful cars. Until Mitsubishi gets their act together and show commitment to Indian market, its not gonna fly.

If they drop the pajero's price and bring the outlaner's prive around the CR-V's, they will lose both the pajero customers as well as the outlander customers.

Pajero resale will drop further and it will go the cedia way. Then people wont be ready to pay 22L for a mitsubishi SUV being sold by HM.

I totally agree. Besides, there is no reason for them to drop Pajero prices. Both of them are so different from each other, there isn't much overlap in the target segment other than the price. Having two models in the same price range is not necessarily a bad thing.

In Australia, I remember the Outlander, CRV, Rav4, and Vitara were in one segment (below the Pajero and Prado), and the Pajero and Prado in another segment above them.

So it doesnt make sense placing the Outlander above Pajero in India!

Which pajero are we talking about the one which is sold internationally or the one which is sold in India. The one in India is a 98 model with a stupid 2.8 L engine which cant go beyond 150 kmph. So the Indian Pajero has no class and it should be sold well below the outlander.

ranc, we are talking about the indian pajero that is 98 model. the one sold abroad is renamed as the montero here.

HSV, you are talking about the Latest gen pajero which is sold as the montero here. The OTR price is approx 38L, which will be well above the outlander.

I could not wait any longer and booked the Honda CRV- with the manual transmission . with due respect to Mitsubishi , I personally feel that the new honda CRV is relatively better than the Outlander . But i really appreciate Mitsubishi for bringing the Diesel version and i don't understand Honda's Logic of not bringing Diesels to India . According to Honda , most of the other manufacturers must be out of their mind to have Diesels in their gamut.

@Vid: you are also talking about the latest Outlander at the same time. Its competing with RAv, CR-V and x-trail everywhere. Why do you think will mitsubishi let the old man Pajero do the fighting? what price would you tag for the OUtlander? If its more, it wont sell and if its less it will be stupid to price it cheaper than pajero2.8. And its also stupid to price both at the same price.

Pajero is old and it makes sense reducing the price. Every car goes through this cycle. Pajero 2.8 wont be facing anything new.
