Mitsubishi Outlander: MY22.5 changes see equipment dropped on lower grades

The new Mitsubishi Outlander has only been on the market for a few months, but the Japanese carmaker has had to drop features on some grades as running MY22.5 adjustments “to optimise supply”.

“Due to ongoing supply constraints and increasing material, manufacturing and logistical costs, Mitsubishi Motors Australia has adjusted certain Outlander models’ standard specification for the 22.5 model year,” the company said in its media release.

“This decision was taken to optimise production and minimise supply delays for Outlander customers.”

Outlander ES, LS and Aspire models lose some features due to supply-constrained components, while high-grade Outlander Exceed and Exceed Tourer versions come with no spec adjustments but have risen in price by $500 and $1000 respectively.

CarExpert understands these changes have been made from February production, with prospective buyers notified by dealers over the past month.

Mitsubishi Australia says the first MY22.5 vehicles are due in showrooms from April.
