Mitsubishi are now offering an optional engine choice for their Outlander Sport model for the 2015 year. The vehicle is known as the ASX on the European market but this new engine for the time being is only offered with US versions of the car. The engine will carry 2.4 litres and will therefore produce 168brake horse power. There is no word for the moment as to whether the engine will carry over to European versions of the car. The engine is offered across two trim levels which include ES and GT trim levels. Each different trim level will however offer more features compared to that of the standard entry level vehicle too. LED indicators, new roof rails and Black bumpers are now offered with the ES. GT models get real time traffic updates,a seven inch HD touch screen and leather seats. There is a good chance that these new updates could carry over to European models but we are awaiting more confirmation on this.
Seat have announced a new sports performance package which is made available with their Leon Cupra model. The brand are referring to it as the 'sub 8' performance pack. With this new package, we see that updated brakes and tyres are all a part of the vehicle now and we also see the Spanish brand add in a range of new features inside of the model. Four piston Brembo brakes have now been thrown into the mix along with a set of Michelin Pilot tyres. The company are to also offer a set of nineteen inch alloy wheel designs which can be chosen in either Orange or Black. Brand new side skirts are also thrown into the vehicle which match the colour of the body.
The Leon Cupra set a new record for being the quickest hot hatchback to lap the Nurburgring and Seat also offer the same tyres that were used to complete this achievement but will come in with a further £460 added on top of the price. If you currently own one of these Leon Cupra models, you can upgrade to these new features for a price starting from £4,200. You can also purchase the whole car with these upgrades with prices kicking of from £31,410.
