1. Major design change
The design concept is ”Impact and Impulse.” As well as signature Mitsubishi toughness, the refined and original design projects a strong image, inviting drivers to follow their impulses and take on new challenges.
- Front view
The new Outlander Sport brings an evolution in MMC’s DYNAMIC SHIELD front design concept. The bumper embraces the central protective shape from both sides, and the squared horizontal and vertical line treatment of the grille and the skid plate under the bumper expresses strength and toughness. The new styling makes the hood deeper, adding to the presence projected by the front end. And the distinctive LED lighting layout, which locates the turn signals and fog lamps at the ends of the bumper, stamps a Mitsubishi brand-look on the front end.
- Rear view
The Outlander Sport uses LED rear combination lamps (except turn signals) in a sharp-looking design that stretches across the width of the car and accentuates the wide stance. The skid plate styling of the underside of the bumper projects a look of strength.
The Outlander Sport is now available in vivid, intensely brilliant Red Diamond, sporty and energetic Sunshine Orange, and sleek, refined Oak Brown.
2. Improvements to Smartphone-link Display Audio (SDA)
The Smartphone-link Display Audio (SDA) has been improved, and now offers more advanced connectivity.
- The size of the display has been increased from seven to eight inches. Videos stored on USB memory sticks can also now be viewed on the SDA screen*4.
