Beautiful looking beasts! Outlander looks stunning otherwise also photographer has done a great job.
FE is pretty decent for the car so powerful .
Please update the max speed you have tried. As per the manual its only SUV / Crossover around 20Lakhs which I read , could go to 196 kmph- so I guess it could cross 200kmph easily.
Congratulations for your lovely vehicle and wish you a very happy and satisfied owbership and funfilled experiences. Please, keep updating your experiences here and of course sharing the lovey pictures.

Congrats on the great SUV. I hope to pick up a pre-owned Outlander (which actually has a nose design to my taste ) sometime.

I was on that stretch couple of weeks back and came across an elephant herd crossing the road a few Kms into Mudumalai stretch. here is the Pic...

Some of the pics are really awesome!! Which phone did u use to click the pics ?
The phone I used is a Black Berry Curve 8900 with a 3.2 MP camera.

Since outlander stands low (single shell construction ) compared to other SUVs like Fortuner & Endevour (body on frame); cornering stability at high speeds is phenomenal (close to CRV).
At high speeds, steering weighs up very nicely, I would say even better than CRV (EVO/Lancer heritage).
I find the transmission kickdowns instantaneous, did not use the paddle shifters for overtaking except on a steep incline. Even in town, the CVT smoothly shifts to the right gears.

I tried up to 140 Km/h, trafic was heavy due to the long weekend.
Planning for a drive up to Munnar, should be able to stretch the car on Krishnagiri - Selam highway...

AFS lights up the corners to which you intend to turn, giving additional illumination. It takes signal from steering and switches additional lamp at the particular side on / off.
See the illustration from Lancer.

Congrats on the new ride SKnair, i did spot your outlander at Jungle Inn, my Safari and Mjothi's Aveo were parked right in front of your car, we did not know where you were staying else we would have met up with you.

BTW, nice pics there and you are very lucky to have spotted the Tiger.

Yes the tiger spotting was unexpected and exiting.

sknair; congrats.

Few queries;

1) What were your other options?
2) Ride quality at rear w.r.t. competiton (Captiva/CRV/Xtrait etc)
3) Warranty; some manufacturers give extended.
4) Only one model is available?

The website wasn't help enough ( they do talk about FE though in a pdf file ). Awaiting more pix ( especially the RF one , has a sub too right? )

Thanks JK
I test drove and researched most of the SUV/Crossovers in the 20 to 25 Lakhs segment. I have posted some comments on comparisons here..
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/suvs-m...ro-sports.html (Outlander, Captiva or wait for Pajero Sports?)

Probably the best ride quality in the rear.
Mitsubishi provides 2 Yr standard waranty + 1 Yr extended waranty.
Yes, only one model is available. there is a talk about a diesel variant towards end of the year.
