The Japanese automaker is trying to make the most out of its top selling model, which is actually rather dated – the Outlander Sport received a special edition back at the Chicago Auto Show.
Now just in time for the public presentation at the New York Auto Show, the Japanese brand is again revisiting the Outlander Sport, this time with the arrival of the 2018 model year. The differences are subtle though: front and rear bumpers have been mildly modified, there are new LED daytime running lights, as well as a new shade called “Alloy Silver.” Inside the cabin, the biggest change is the addition of a new seven-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, while Mitsubishi also polished some other interior bits and pieces.
Also new for the 2018 model year is the addition of an optional Touring Package consisting of a panoramic roof and a range of safety and assistance systems, among them Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Mitigation, and the Automatic High Beam function. The company is also fitting a rear camera and made modifications to drop noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) levels. No technical details have been provided, so we can imagine the four-cylinder 2.0-liter with 148 horsepower (110 kilowatts) and the 2.4-liter producing 168 hp (125 kW) will remain unchanged.
