The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport facelift has made its North American debut at the ongoing Los Angeles Auto Show. Starting on the outside, the biggest change is a new take on the corporate Dynamic Shield front fascia and you will also notice the restyled mirrors incorporating LED turn signals. It has also gained new 18-inch alloy wheels and slightly modified lip wheel moldings, but nothing really of great importance. On the inside it comes with revised seat fabrics, a new steering wheel and an upgraded 6.1-inch Display Audio System along with an auto-dimming rearview mirror featuring Homelink functionality.
In terms of engines, the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport facelift can be fitted with a 2.0-liter inline-four producing 148 bhp (110 kW) and a maximum torque of 196 Nm (145 lb-ft). If this sounds weak, you can upgrade to a bigger 2.4-liter rated at 168 bhp (125 kW) and 226 Nm (167 lb-ft). Mitsubishi is selling a five-speed manual and a continuously variable transmission, depending on engine choice.
The starting price has remained unchanged despite the updates, so you will be able to get the crossover for as little as $19,595 for the entry-level version with the 2.0-liter motor. All cars have 7 airbags, tire pressure monitoring system, hill start assist and keyless entry.
