Facelifted Mitsubishi Outlander gets teased once more image

Mitsubishi has released two more teaser images with the facelifted version of the Outlander, which will be introduced next week, at the 2015 New York Auto Show.

The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander is being highlighted once again, this time with the help of two more teaser images, which are partially revealing its front fascia and rear end. The model in question is nothing more than a facelift but, according to the car manufacturer, its looks represent the future design language which will be adopted by the brand.

The facelifted SUV seems to have been inspired by the looks of the PHEV Concept-S at the front, where we can see the extensive use of chrome, while the rear end is looking more exciting but it might have been inspired by the design of the Pajero Sport. The cabin of the model is expected to be updated too but don’t expect major changes because chances are the carmaker will focus on using better quality materials, besides the new upholsteries and probably a new design for the air vents.

The Japanese based automaker will need more than a facelift in order to make the Outlander a popular vehicle once more but a new generation is uncertain at this time. The current one has been in production since 2012 and it is currently put together in Russia and Japan, riding on the GS platform and using the 2.0L I4, the 2.4L I4, the 2.2L TD and the 3.0L V6 in the U.S., with transmissions including the 6-speed manual, 6-speed automatic and CVT.
