Smack my bum and call me Judy!

I love the looks. Sure the front looks like predator had sex with a tank but this thing coming up in the rear view mirror will scare the crap out of anyone. Plus with those headlights it's going to put the high beamers in their place real quick.

Bring it to India Mitsubishi!

I can see the opinions are divided based on the exterior design. Some love it, while others hate it. Why not bring a POLL on this thread related to the same ?

I have a 2016 model. Any idea how I can "unsee" this now?

I am quite happy with the (now with respect to this) classic look. As Godfather said "look how they massacred my boy".

The only thing needed was to do something for the lazy CVT which I hope has been fixed in the newer versions already.

Is that the same as the outgoing model? I've driven Europcar's Petrol Outlander and can confirm that it was a lazy engine-transmission combination. However it was quite fuel efficient and it was sort of the car that just wanted to cruise along at leisure without any sense of urgency. The interior was well packaged but nothing fancy or special. It was very practical. It felt like the perfect rental car.

I think Crossovers need to look angry these days and that's what Mitsubishi is attempting I guess. The new Pajero Sport's front is intimidating but the Outlander looks like a big Panda.

BTW is the Outlander and the X-Trail/Rogue the same car or not?

It is not Mitsubishi's own engine, its the Nissan 2.5 and CVT combo since they are all based off of Nissan Rogue or X-Trail when it comes to Australia.

Mazda 2.5 for e.g. makes 20 odd bhp more, makes more torque and is more fuel efficient as well and its not even Mazda's best engine. The turbo version of the same engine makes a whole lot more power and torque and is only .3 kmpl less efficient in the combined cycle. Nissan should really think about introducing the 2.0 VC Turbo, atleast in the higher spec models.

If it is based on Nissan Rogue, then it would be a smaller size than Fortuner, the Pajero is the Fortuner comparable size. Will be different segment.

Its a stand out look at me design and you can say Outlandish. Will it come to India by any chance?

Quite like the car and the brand, but been let down as an owner of an outlander in the past, due to service quality & the tranquillised gear box. Never own one again! Knowing Mitshubishi it will be launched at the end of the life cycle for this car and within a year or so it will be withdrawn. Sometimes I wonder why do they even go through the trouble of launching the products!

Knowing Mitsubishi, it will drive well too. I cannot remember any Mitsubishi which had poor road manners...the Lancer, Cedia, Pajero, Outlander & Montero were all well-mannered.
Totally agree . I too find nothing wrong with the front, quite different rom others if you ask me. And I find the overall exterior quite good. I guess it is a matter of different tastes for different people

This is one good looking SUV. Except for the headlamps shape, everything is good and looks macho. Side profile looks a bit like X5 with that squarish rear.

I think they could have given a more powerful engine, this seems to be just adequate. Mitsubishi, if at all planning to launch in India, need to price it aggressively to succeed.

Two teaser images show the Outlander PHEV's charging port and the dedicated badging on the tailgate and front fender.

Mitsubishi unveiled the exterior and interior design of the plug-in hybrid variant of the new-generation Outlander ahead of its official premiere on 28th October.

The Outlander PHEV looks almost identical to the ICE-powered variant, with the exception of the special badges on the front doors and tailgate, plus the addition of a charging port.

The color palette consists of 10 colors including Red Diamond, White Diamond, and Black Diamond.

Inside, the 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and the 9-inch infotainment touchscreen benefit from PHEV-specific graphics showing the status of the powertrain.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will debut in the Japanese market in mid-December and in the U.S. in the second half of 2022.
