Mitsubishi’s sales have been soaring as of late, and the automaker plans to cash in on that success soon with the release of a new crossover coming in late 2017/early 2018. The new Mitsubishi compact crossover will slot between the Outlander and Outlander Sport in the automaker’s lineup, and will be sold mainly in Europe and the United States.
Automotive News reports that the crossover will likely take styling cues from the eX Concept crossover which debuted recently at the Tokyo Motor Show. Its competitors will include the likes of the Kia Sportage and Hyundai Tucson in a segment that is becoming increasingly popular with drivers across the globe.
The release of the new crossover will mark Mitsubishi’s comeback as a strong player in the crossover/SUV world. Currently, the automaker’s lineup consists of three cars and two crossovers, but the addition of this new model would even things up and make Mitsubishi a strong contender in a contended segment.
If you can’t wait a couple more years for the release of the new Mitsubishi compact crossover, stop by and check out the current lineup at Don Robinson Mitsubishi. Feel free to share your comment below about what you think this new SUV might be like for the Mitsubishi brand!
When you need to transport a lot of people, you need a big vehicle. And, larger vehicles almost always cost more than their smaller counterparts. But, you don’t have to break the bank to get the right-sized vehicle. The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander was recently ranked number one in Cars.com’s list of the Most Affordable 3-Row Crossovers.
“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. Swearingen goes on to say, “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.”
The 2016 Outlander has a starting price of only $22,995. And, even if you bump up to the well-equipped SEL trim, it still only starts at $24,995. The new Outlander features over 100 engineering and design improvements over the previous model year, including its new stellar front end design.
When putting together its list of crossovers, Cars.com considered more than just price. It also weighed five years of fuel costs and the car’s residual value after five years. And, to be considered for the list, a vehicle has to come equipped with an automatic transmission, power driver’s seat, rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and a USB port.
The 2016 Outlander SEL has all of these features and more. And, making it even more of a value is the fact that it is backed by an industry-leading 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty.
