Inspired Driving Performance
Powering Mitsubishi vehicles is an engine technology that has been fine tuned for decades, from its development in the early 90s to today, the MIVEC engine. Short for Mitsubishi Innovative Valve-Timing Control system, MIVEC offers a number of benefits to the driver, chief of which being increased power. You can learn more about the MIVEC system through either of the links below.
Experience Mitsubishi’s vaunted MIVEC technology, alongside their incredibly fuel-efficient CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). Rather than utilizing a traditional gear system, Mitsubishi’s CVT uses a pulley system that never searches for gears, instead offering a steady stream of power exactly when you need it. Read on to learn more about how Mitsubishi’s CVT can improve your drive.
Mitsubishi vehicles are all finely-tuned machines, offering unique options to improve every drive. Case in point, the Outlander PHEV. Offering three distinct driving modes, the 2019 Outlander PHEV can easily switch from gas consumption, to all-electric, to a combination of the two, in order to get the most out of Canada’s best-selling plug-in hybrid SUV.
All-Wheel Control, all the time
Mitsubishi has been a forerunner in the realm of four-wheel drive, since they introduced the Mitsubishi PX33 in 1936. Currently offering two stand-out systems providing unparalleled control, handling and traction, Mitsubishi’s AWC (All-Wheel Control) and S-AWC (Super All-Wheel Control) tackle tough terrain and slick surfaces with aplomb.
