Mitsubishi continues to test a new generation of Outlander crossover

July 23, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

A camouflaged prototype of a new generation Mitsubishi Outlander was spotted during the tests. The crossover can be built on the same platform as the updated Nissan X-Trail. The Outlander will debut before the end of this year.

It’s safe to say the Outlander is one of the most (if not the most) popular Mitsubishi models. The sports crossover is also one of the best-selling PHEV (plug-in hybrid) crossovers in the world. As these new spy photos show, work on the fourth generation of the model, which will be unveiled in late 2020, is in full swing.

These pictures, courtesy of a foreign publication, depict a disguised prototype of the novelty. Much of the exterior’s exterior details remain hidden behind disguise, but we see two huge lamps in the front, accompanied by subtle daytime running lights that are located at the end of the bonnet. There is a narrow false radiator grille between the headlights. Many of these designs are based on the previously unveiled Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer concept.

The all-new Outlander crossover worship could be based on the same platform that also underpins the new Nissan Rogue (X-Trail in some countries).

At the moment, the composition of the new engine range remains a mystery, but we can almost guarantee that buyers will be offered a plug-in hybrid power plant, which, according to early rumors, could receive a larger battery.

There is no official information about the debut date of the new Outlander from Mitsubishi, but there is reason to believe that the crossover will be presented before the end of the year. If this turns out to be a correct assumption, then the crossover will go on sale as a novelty for the 2021 model year – sales are likely to start in the first quarter of next year.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross received Outdoor and Sport variations. On Thursday, July 9, two special modifications of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, which are intended for the Brazilian car market, were shown.
