The new-look 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander SUV has broken cover overnight at the New York International Motor Show just weeks ahead of its arrival in Australia.
Mitsubishi officially unveiled the sharper styled, more refined 2016 Outlander SUV, distinguished by dramatic new front and rear styling with revised LED light clusters and new style 18-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the Outlander’s seven-seat cabin is embellished with a new design steering wheel design and improved materials deployed in the seat trim, headliner and interior accents.
Mitsubishi has made multiple design and engineering upgrades to Outlander, including increased body and suspension structural rigidity, redesigned suspension and Electric Power Steering, noise-isolating windscreen and tailgate glass, more sound insulation throughout the vehicle, new dynamic front suspension and rear differential dampers.
2016 models also gains a new generation continuously-variable transmission that offers improved acceleration, performance, shift feel and torque delivery.
“The smarter, more refined 2016 Outlander is part of a major product and style rebirth taking place within Mitsubishi, and reflects the company’s stronger focus on quality, technology and design excellence,” said Mitsubishi Motors Australia Executive Director of Marketing Tony Principe.
“The changes to Outlander are more than cosmetic, with numerous engineering improvements made to Outlander’s suspension and steering system, NVH package and drivetrain performance.”
“Outlander will continue to offer great SUV functionality, terrific fuel economy and low running costs but will now be significantly quieter, more responsive and even more enjoyable to drive, making it a real stand out in the medium SUV class.”
Mitsubishi Australia will announce details of its local revised Outlander range at launch later this month.
