The Outlander Sport is a compact SUV designed for the city, offering
wide-ranging versatility that makes it perfect for everything from
everyday use to exciting adventures. Its lightweight, compact body
combined with an SUV’s commanding driver sightlines give the Outlander
Sport excellent handling and easy drivability.
The Outlander Sport delivers reassurance and safety, with features
including the RISE impact safety body and a Forward Collision Mitigation
(FCM) braking system.
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.
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.
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
