Most noticeably, the exterior receives Mitsubishi's new "Dynamic Shield" front design concept. New 18-inch alloy wheel design, lip wheel moldings and power folding side door mirrors with turn indicator lamps contribute to the sleek new design.
Interior appeal is bolstered with a new steering wheel, new interior seat fabrics, improved 6.1" Display Audio System and new auto-dimming rearview mirror with Homelink®.
The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport comes equipped with the following standard features:
Performance and Power
The more powerful 2.4-liter MIVEC 4-cylinder engine is available in all 2016 Outlander Sport models, and comes standard with the SE, SEL and GT trim levels. Also available in each trim level is Mitsubishi's All-Wheel Control (AWC) System. The continuously-variable transmission (CVT) provides better response, performance and improved fuel economy to keep the Outlander Sport performing at its high standards with optimal fuel economy ratings.
Aside from the powertrain performance, the 2016 model year keeps its aerodynamic, low-drag body design that supports the Outlander Sport's fuel efficiency. Electric Power Steering (EPS) and front and rear suspension system further adds to the CUV's high performance level.
