Next to the highly anticipated release of the newly revamped 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander, you may think the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport will not be as exciting. Although there haven’t been as many changes to the Outlander Sport as the Outlander, this year’s model has plenty of new things to offer.
The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport exterior updates include a new “Dynamic Shield,” new 18” alloy wheels, and power folding side door mirrors with turn signal indicators built right in. Also, the Outlander Sport has more colors to choose from this year ranging from Labrador Black, Octane Blue, Cool Silver, Rally Red and the standard Diamond White Pearl.
As for the engine, the 2.4L MIVEC engine is standard for the SE, SEL, and GT trims and includes a CVT automatic transmission. There is also an optional AWC System available for each trim level.
The interior of the new Outlander Sport has all new seats and steering wheel along with some cool features like the auto-dimming rearview mirror and the 6.1” Display Audio System that is new and improved. These features are added to the long list of already standard features available.

Mitsubishi has been in the U.S. since 1982, and although there have been some rough patches; it appears that Mitsubishi is standing strong in the U.S. Mitsubishi announced on December 26th, 2015 that the company has sold a total of Five Million Mitsubishi Cars in the U.S. That’s an average of about 15,000 cars a year!
Since first appearing in the United States, Mitsubishi had brought many great vehicles to us including the Galant, Montero, and one of our personal favorites, the Mitsubishi Eclipse. Also, we can’t forget the recently retired model the Lancer Evolution. In addition to these great past models, Mitsubishi has great things to come for the brand including the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, a hybrid model, and other 2016 models currently available, such as the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander, i-MiEV and Lancer.
In addition to selling over 5 Million cars, Mitsubishi has continually increased sales the last few months. By the last few months, I mean the last 21 months of consecutive increases over the previous year. It is clear that Mitsubishi is finding a permanent home in the U.S. and that the brand is attracting loyal followers that look forward to see what is next!
Here at Don Robinson Mitsubishi, we couldn’t be more excited to see what the next great thing for Mitsubishi is! Until then, stop by and see our great stock of 2016 Mitsubishi models!
