The versatile Mitsubishi Outlander comes with a wide range of technologies to improve driving, including the latest infotainment, safety, and performance innovations. For instance, there’s a smart S-AWC ECO Driving Mode, which optimizes efficiency without sacrificing off-road capability.
The Outlander S-AWC ECO Driving Mode uses
sensors and computer systems to monitor wheel spin, only applying four-wheel drive
when wheel slippage is detected. That means you get the benefit of all-wheel
control only when you need it, conserving gas so you’re not stopping for
refills as often.
“We created the S-AWC technology with the goal of realizing ‘predictable handling’ and ‘high margin of performance’ at a very high level,” explains Mitsubishi in a press release. In addition to the ECO mode, there’s also Normal, Snow, and Lock modes. Snow is great for slippery surfaces, while the Lock mode lets you stay in 4WD the entire time you’re behind the wheel.
The S-AWC is an Integrated Vehicle Dynamics
Control System, as it features advanced technologies to manage driving
dynamics, braking, and power based on road conditions. This feature utilizes
sub-systems like Active Yaw Control, which can control the brakes and steering
to regulate torque.

up-close and in-person look at the Outlander’s AWC ECO Driving Mode today.
At the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, Mitsubishi turned heads and generated buzz with the unveiling of the new Mitsubishi Mi-TECH CONCEPT. An insanely advanced and exceptionally stylish hybrid off-road dune buggy concept, Mitsubishi’s latest innovation proves that the automaker is set on taking the automotive industry to bold new heights.
The Mi-TECH CONCEPT features a unique drivetrain that can
run on a variety of fuel types, including diesel or ethanol, teasing that
Mitsubishi is interested in exploring a greater diversity of drivetrains in the
Another big development in the Mi-TECH CONCEPT is a new
Human Machine Interface system, which displays data gathered through a system
of sensors. Mitsubishi also hinted that the concept would boast an augmented
reality Head-Up Display that would help the driver operate with confidence in
difficult visibility situations.
While the Mi-TECH CONCEPT is strictly a concept that won’t
be available for our customers, it does hint at all of the things Mitsubishi is
cooking up. If the Mi-TECH CONCEPT information is any indication of where
Mitsubishi is headed, we can all except to see some seriously stylish,
mind-blowing advanced, and exceptional fun vehicles from Mitsubishi soon.
In the meantime, check out the innovative crossovers we have at Hampton Mitsubishi.
Mitsubishi has built a reputation for delivering cutting-edge technology, and it’s the result of years of Mitsubishi innovation in engineering. At Hampton Mitsubishi, we’re proud of the groundbreaking work Mitsubishi has done over the years. Here are some of the brand’s most innovative developments.
All-Wheel Control continuously reads road conditions to
automatically transfer power where it is needed most. The result is enhanced
traction and handling even when driving in tough conditions, like snow or ice.
Super All-Wheel Control
In 2014, Mitsubishi updated its advanced drivetrain
technology, calling it Super All-Wheel Control. S-AWC features four distinct
driving modes: Normal, Snow, Lock (for off-road conditions), and Eco.
MIVEC Engine Technology
While the fundamentals of gasoline engines have remained
the same for years, Mitsubishi proved that there is plenty of room for
improvement with the development of MIVEC engine technology. This advanced
valve timing electronic control system ensures optimal valve timing at all speeds
for an exceptional balance of power and fuel efficiency.
INVECS Adaptive Shift Control Technology
Unlike traditional shifting systems, Mitsubishi INVECS
Adaptive Shift Control learns your driving habits and responds accordingly by
altering shifting points for optimal performance.
Active Stability and Traction Control
ASC technology employs a system of sensors to constantly
monitor road conditions to optimize stability and traction by automatically
applying braking power to specific wheels.
After four decades of research and development, Mitsubishi Innovative Electric Vehicle technology automatically monitors energy flow through the vehicle to create smooth acceleration and ensures optimal performance of all electrical systems.
These innovative systems are featured in the Mitsubishi vehicles available at Hampton Mitsubishi.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is one of the most innovative

Mitsubishi recently announced it would be partnering with Google to develop innovative infotainment technologies by 2021. Some of the major goals of this partnership include equipping more models with cloud-based services as well as turn-by-turn navigation and Google Assistant. In short, you’ll be better connected than ever before when you choose a Mitsubishi.
According to the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, the Alliance Intelligent Cloud is perhaps one of the biggest additions to the current lineup of infotainment technologies. There’s easy-to-integrate data management, infotainment, remote diagnostics, and more through the Alliance Intelligent Cloud. Thanks to this new partnership between the auto conglomerate and Google, Mitsubishi cars of the future will likely have some of the most advanced infotainment on the market.
“Our partnership with Google will offer owners of our vehicles rich user experiences that are currently available only outside the vehicle or, to a limited extent, by connecting an Android device to supported vehicles,” said Hadi Zablit, Senior Vice President of Business Development at Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi.
In addition to high-tech cloud and infotainment services, Mitsubishi is also working with Google to develop a series of zero-emissions electric vehicles as well as autonomous-driving technologies. These are just some of the ways the Mitsubishi brand is revolutionizing the industry.
While this advanced technology is still a few years away, contact us at Hampton Mitsubishi for more information on current infotainment systems.
