Auto123 gets in a first drive of the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander.
Mitsubishi products were first introduced to Canada in the 1980s and 1990s, when Chrysler offered variants of the company's models. Think of the Eagle Vista and Talon, the Dodge Colt, etc.
In 2002, the company officially opened for business in Canada as an independent car manufacturer. Its first years after setting up shop were marked by more than one highlight, among them the launch of the Lancer and, in 2004, the introduction of a 10-year powertrain protection warranty that reset the industry standard.
That same year saw the company introduce a model by the name of Outlander. Along with the Lancer, it gave the brand credibility; since the departure of the Lancer from the landscape, The SUV stands apart as the star performer of the brand’s lineup.
