Mitsubishi’s new crossover has been in the works for quite some time, and now it looks like we’ll be getting an official debut. The 2017 Geneva Motor Show takes place in March, and, following the teaser photo the automaker released not too long ago, that’s where we’ll see it live. Best of all, the new model won’t premiere as a concept vehicle, but rather as a production vehicle!
The new compact crossover is both sporty and coupe-like. The teaser photo reveals the profile which matches the description pretty well. The C-pillar and beltline offer a look that’s nearly spot-on. The front end looks similar to the Outlander’s, due largely in part to the similar headlights. The utility vehicle will be slotted between the Outlander Sport and standard Outlander models.
The Outlander Sport is expected to shrink and the standard Outlander will grow slightly between 2019 and 2020. The new model will likely arrive in the United States in early 2018.
Keep an eye out for Mitsubishi’s new crossover at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show on March 7th. There’s no pricing available just yet, but knowing Mitsubishi, the compact crossover will be a true value.
We here at Don Robinson Mitsubishi can’t wait for the official unveiling of the new Mitsubishi crossover.
The Paris Motor Show is one of a handful of major automotive events held around the world throughout the year. It’s a time for automakers to show off production models and concept vehicles alike. Mitsubishi was out to take the spotlight this year with a set of concepts that were easy on the eyes, to say the least.
A next-generation plug-in hybrid crossover took center stage, but it wasn’t the Outlander we were hoping for. Instead, the GT-PHEV concept, otherwise known as the Grand Tourer, is the latest hybrid concept to debut in recent years.
Next year, however, is an entirely new story.
Starting in 2017, Mitsubishi’s debuts will no longer just be concepts. Instead, production models will take the helm under the leadership of Tsunehire Kunimoto, Mitsubishi’s new global design chief. His strategy is to boast about the brand’s reputation while continuing to move forward.
Remember that Grand Tourer Concept? There’s a very real possibility it could become the next-generation Outlander in 2019. As a result, Mitsubishi played with an upscale design theme for the 2016 Paris Motor Show.
The GT-PHEV boasted a floating roof and maximized space and visibility on the interior. The future of Mitsubishi begins at the Geneva Motor Show next spring where the Japanese automaker will unveil its newest crossover.
We here at Don Robinson Mitsubishi are happy with what we saw at the Paris Motor Show!
