Mitsubishi made a big splash all over the world with the Outlander nameplate. The Outlander Sport is the brand’s best-selling model, and the Outlander PHEV was the first plug-in hybrid of its class and price point to make it to U.S. shores. Now, we might have a sneak peek at the new Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, and it came in the form of the 2020 Mitsubishi ASX at the Geneva Motor Show.
The Mitsubishi ASX isn’t a new model. It’s the name of Europe’s equivalent to the Outlander Sport. That’s why, when the ASX debuted onstage at the Geneva Motor Show, it was obvious to guests that the model was also a preview of the upcoming refreshed American vehicle. A quick glimpse of the outside shows off a sleeker profile and a sharper front fascia more in line with the design philosophy of the standard Outlander and Eclipse Cross, as well as revised taillights and a rear bumper.
There are no known power train options for the new Mitsubishi Outlander so far, but more information may be available on the U.S. model as it draws closer to the Outlander Sport’s fall 2019 launch date.The European model had a 2.0-liter I-4 under the hood in Geneva.

Mitsubishi has been making strides with all of its new vehicles, and the Outlander is no exception. So far, it’s been recognized for over 100 improvements from its 2015 predecessor. And how else it’s being recognized? Its affordability! The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander made it onto the list of the 10 Most Affordable Three-Row Vehicles of 2016.
Kelley Blue Book compiles this list annually of the most affordable three-row vehicles. To qualify, a vehicle must have seating for up to seven or eight passengers. All cars on the list range from $23,000 to $30,000, an incredibly affordable price range for a large vehicle.
But Mitsubishi isn’t just about a low price tag. The 2016 Outlander offers affordability and quality.
“We set a new value standard for the brand when we launched the 2016 Outlander last year, and to see it is recognized by such an informative and trusted source in the automotive industry confirms that Mitsubishi is making a name for itself in the SUV/CUV segment,” said Don Swearingen, Chief Operating Officer of MMNA.
With the Outlander, you’ll get incredibly fuel economy, horsepower, and Mitsubishi’s outstanding warranty. Check it out today at Pantili Mitsubishi!
Mitsubishi has had a good start to 2016 mostly driven by the popularity of the updated Outlander and Outlander Sport. Mitsubishi’s January sales were led by the Outlander Sport, which sold 2,223 units.
This was followed by the Outlander, which had its best January since 2007 with sales of 1,543—an increase of 53.8% over January 2015. January was also the 11th consecutive month of year-over-year sales for the Outlander.
The 2016 Outlander has over 100 updates over the previous model, including a new exterior design, a reconfigured interior, engineering improvements, and improved second-row seating. It also boasts excellent safety scores and was named a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety with the availability of Forward Collision Mitigation.
As for the smaller Outlander Sport, it also has an excellent safety record and has earned a Top Safety Pick recognition for four years in a row. Buyers can choose between engine options that deliver the ideal balance between efficiency and power.
The new Outlander is winning awards left and right, including being named a KBB Best Buy finalist. Thanks to over 100 improvements on the 2016 model, this car was named one of the best cars to buy for the price.
According to Mitsubishi, the KBB award measures overall vehicle quality and value based on expert evaluation and standard metrics. This includes pricing, mechanical data, 5-year cost-to-own info, maintenance, financing, fuel, and fees among other things.
“With more than 300 new-car models eligible for the 2016 Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com Best Buy Awards, we are proud to see the Outlander included among the top 49 Finalists as it speaks volumes to where the Outlander stands in the eyes of a vehicle valuation and information source trusted by the industry and consumers alike,” said Don Swearingen, executive vice president of Mitsubishi Motors North America.
Models are divided into 12 categories. The Outlander was ranked in the Midsize SUV segment. Currently, there is no winner, but the overall Best Buy Award will be given sometime later this month. Our fingers are crossed that the Outlander wins.
Crossovers are among the fastest growing vehicles in America, in terms of popularity. Three-row crossovers are at the bigger end of the crossover spectrum and are typically for people who prefer a more stylish, less bulky vehicle over a minivan.
Every year, Cars.com puts together a list of the Most Affordable Three-Row Crossovers, an important study in light of the crossover’s popularity. It’s a great study because Cars.com doesn’t just look at the purchase price; the website also takes into account “five years of fuel costs and residual values of the cars after five years provided by ALG to determine which crossover will cost the least in the long run.”
After the smoke cleared, the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander had claimed the top spot in the list of Most Affordable Three-Row Crossover by Cars.com. The Outlander possessed all of the features that Cars.com deemed “essential to car shoppers today,” like an automatic transmission, a power driver’s seat, a rearview camera, a USB port, and Bluetooth connectivity.

We mentioned a couple of months ago that the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander was voted as one of the 10 most affordable 3-row vehicles by Kelly Blue Book. Well, the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander does its predecessor one better by being voted by Cars.com as being the most affordable 3-row crossover.
These improvements have evidently been beneficial to the Outlander’s reputation.
“We designed the 2016 Outlander to be an unmatched value in its segment, so it’s no surprise to us that it leads the way on the Cars.com list of most affordable 3-row crossovers,” said Don Swearingen, MMNA Executive Vice President, in the press release. “From its long list of features, to available advanced safety technologies and a new eye-catching design, the seven passenger Outlander is a leader in value and reliability.”
Keep an eye out for the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander, coming soon to Pantili Mitsubishi!
Larger vehicles are almost always more expensive than their smaller counterparts. But you don’t have to spend a fortune to get the size of vehicle you need. Kelley Blue Book has named the Mitsubishi Outlander to its list of the 10 Most Affordable 3-Row Vehicles.
“The 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander is an outstanding value proposition and comes with a long list of standard safety features and amenities,” states Don Swearingen, Executive Vice President, MMNA, in a statement. “And for 2016, the Outlander will feature bold new styling and over 100 key engineering and interior refinements, adding even more value to an already feature-laden vehicle.”
KBB.com described the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander as “loaded with value.” The editors were impressed with its standard three rows of seats, micron air filtration, hill-start assist, traction and stability control, seven air bags, and Mitsubishi’s impressive 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
In addition to these great value-oriented standard features, the Outlander is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ with the available Forward Collision Mitigation system. Other safety features include anti-lock brakes and Electronic Brake-force Distribution. The Outlander is even built with Mitsubishi’s Impact Safety Evolution chassis.
When Mitsubishi introduced three of the most exciting concepts at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, we could tell there was a new wave of energy emanating from the car company. Most recently, the 2016 Outlander Sport took center-stage at the New York Auto Show, modeling the same distinctive design language of the concept cars.
While the new 2016 Outlander will be available later this year, Mitsubishi already has in the works another SUV for the US market that it promises will be “the return of a legend,” which is slated to reappear as a 2017 model. Early spy photos indicate sweeping lines and curves instead of the boxy-shaped older version of the car, and if the GC-PHEV concept car is any indication, the 2017 Montero may offer the same unique styling, plug-in-hybrid powertrain consisting of a supercharged V6 engine, and electric motor good for a combined 335hp.
Although it is still sold overseas, the Mitsubishi Montero return will mark the first time the vehicle has been offered in the US since 2006. Be sure to check in with Pantili Mitsubishi for the latest on these models.
Mitsubishi is inviting everyone to “come see the new face of Mitsubishi Motors” at the 2015 New York International Auto Show, where it will be revealing what can only be the restyled 2016 Outlander SUV.
That assumption can be made from the poster that came with the announcement, which depicts a fairly recognizable front end. But as we know from previous spy shots, Mitsubishi has gone to work on both the front fascia and much of the rear end of the most popular vehicle in its lineup.
There’s also good reason to think the restyling will coincide with the American debut of the Outlander’s plug-in hybrid version, which has us expecting a design more or less along the lines of the Outlander PHEV Concept-S previously unveiled at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.
In any case, we can’t wait to have the new 2016 Outlander at Pantili Mitsubishi. Stay tuned for the press conference at 11:30AM ET on April 2nd for the big reveal!
