It’s been an exciting week at the 2015 New York Auto Show with Mitsubishi finally dropping the curtain on the new 2016 Outlander. The fresh design language incorporated from the Outlander PHEV Concept-S seems geared towards U.S. resurgence and the improved quality of the fresh Outlander makes it a compelling crossover.
In all, Mitsubishi employed 100 design changes compared to last year’s model. An angular, muscular chrome grill dominates the front end accentuating its aggressive lines. The doorsills now sport silver cladding and the hatchback has a noticeable skid-plate for a more rugged effect.
The interior receives many new changes, from premium soft-touch materials to additional padding on the steering wheel – but the biggest improvement is what you can’t see. The new Outlander will be markedly quieter by way of acoustic windshield glass and sound deadening material located in wheel wells, side mirrors, and throughout its structure. Certainly the 2016 Outlander revamp will demand a test drive if you’re in the crossover market.
Mitsubishi has a runaway success on their hands, so come see the entire lineup of cars and SUVs at Heritage Mitsubishi.
