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.
Mitsubishi made a big announcement earlier this month, saying that the automaker would be expanding their future lineup to include a larger variety of model types. Specifically – they will be adding more sedans.
The Japanese carmaker is likely using these new sedan models to fill a void left by the unfortunate departure of the Lancer Evolution line. This popular performance line was recently cut from the Mitsubishi lineup after the carmaker declared it will not be renewed for the next model year. Although, this makes us a bit sad at Don Robinson Mitsubishi, we are excited to see what new sedans Mitsubishi will be bringing on to replace it.
Don Swearingen, the executive vice president of Mitsubishi Motors North America, mentioned in a recent interview that one vehicle will replace the Lancer, while another will be inspired by the Mirage. He did not say, however, how many new sedan models the company would be adding to its collection. We are just glad that Mitsubishi isn’t doing away with sedans for good!
Hopefully, more information will be revealed in the coming months. Would you like to see some new Mitsubishi sedans? Let us know what you think in the comments.
