Mitsubishi Philippines denies Outlander phase-out rumor

By Anna Barbara L. Lorenzo
 
First, the bad news: You might have a tough luck finding a Mitsubishi Outlander in the local market anytime soon.

The recent appreciation of the Japanese yen has made importation of the Mitsubishi Outlander a little too pricey, Mitsubishi Philippines assistant manager for advertising and promotions Arlan Reyes said in a phone interview.

Reyes assures potential Mitsubishi Outlander buyers, however, that the model will not be phased out.

"If we import it now, the price is absurd. We're just waiting for the opportunity to import when the exchange rate is better," Reyes said.

And now for the good news: When Mitsubishi Philippines finally finds the yen at a more appealing rate, we'll be seeing the 2010 Mitsubishi Outlander on local roads.

Are you going to wait or do you now have other SUVs in mind?

    They're most likely waiting for the JPEPA tax-tariff reduction on CBU imports to be finally be implemented!

    I'm declaring my Outlander as a total loss after the Ondoy flood. Now that I have a choice to buy a new car, if Mitsubishi will be releasing the Outlander GT in replacement of the current Outlander, I'll be looking at Subaru's way instead.
