The pressure mounts from the moment you look at it. The grille is heavily inspired by all those Pajeros, flying over sand dunes as they carved their way to the victor's step. Lots of chrome then, that also helps it look quite upmarket, and the projector headlamps.
But what really gives it a purposeful stance is the high ground clearance, accentuated by the skid plate. What will catch your attention is the gap between the wheel arch and the tyre itself; you literally can see the struts and coil springs from a considerable distance.
Other design highlights are the side-steps that do serve a great purpose, unlike on most other SUVs, while the horizontally placed tail-lamps are in line with the Outlander soft-roader. This is one smart-looking, if slightly top-heavy, SUV.
