The fact that the Mitsubishi Outlander should get a brand new “face” we knew for a long time. Last fall at the Paris Motor Sxhow the Japanese concept called Outlander Concept-S, which was actually not any concept, and is almost ready for serial production model. Well, in the beginning of March, the network appeared photos of the updated “Auta”, which were made in Kaluga, where there is both the assembly model. Here at New York Auto Show 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander unveiled a new official.
However, really “new” can be called a stretch. In fact, we are talking about restyling, albeit quite serious. As you know, the most significant change has undergone front of the car – it was “X-shaped”. Sometimes you can hear that this style of Japanese “assembled” from concepts Lada, for example, X-RAY. Like it or not, you can argue long. But the fact remains – as long as new items from the “Lada” just getting ready for production, Mitsubishi has already established its mass production model (the same can be noted that for the first time his “X” Japanese people have shown more in 2013 on the concept of XR-PHEV).
