Mitsubishi has been a little silent in the automotive industry in past years, but they expect to change that with the announcement of the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander, which will be debuted at the New York Auto Show. Mitsubishi claims the new model will feature over 100 engineering and design improvements, refined handling/throttle response, and “a more eloquent yet functional interior space.”
The exterior of the the 2016 Outlander is only a small update of the original 2012 version, but the interior of the vehicle has been completely revamped. Exterior updates include more angular headlamps, new twin-slit radiator grille, and chrome accents. New alloy wheel designs and paint colors will be available on the 2016 model as well. Outlander should be available for consumers to purchase late 2015.
