Mitsubishi Outlander Sport 2018: Direct to the New York Motor Show

Mitsubishi will be planting at the New York Motor Show with the Outlander Sport , which is like a more compact Outlander that does not really look revolutionary lines, as they closely resemble those of the model we all knew.

It can be said that it is sportier by details like the 18-inch alloy wheels it mounts, which is not the only element of its equipment that they want us to feature. Also it is necessary to speak of its automatic air-conditioner, the system of opening and automatic starting, the control of cruise ship or the Bluetooth, that in truth also are not exceptional things today.

From the back it must be said that they have redesigned the bumper . In addition, they have chosen to place a thin chrome strip that is placed between the two optical groups. All in all, the result seems to me correct.

They have not said anything about the engines

On motors they have not said anything. That means that it will continue with the same offer, with a 2.0 liter of 150 hp and a 2.4 liter of 170 hp as options. Both gasoline, of course, and associated with a CVT gearbox.
