The Highlights of Mitsubishi Motors New Lineup
We’ve been pretty excited to see what Mitsubishi Motors comes out with next since we heard about the new game plan for the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance. Playing a game of follow-the-leader, with Mitsubishi set to be the first to release a new vehicle for the C/D car segment. This could be anything from a subcompact to the large car, and it could be a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) or maybe even fully-electric, but the former is more likely with the PHEV concepts Mitsubishi has been churning out lately. We won’t have to wait too long for new vehicles from Mitsubishi, however, with its new lineup launching between now and the second quarter of 2021.
Mitsubishi will start the release in the winter of 2020, first debuting a newly revised version of the world’s best-selling PHEV, the Outlander PHEV. Followed by the most-fuel efficient non-hybrid vehicle in the U.S. is the Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback. The third vehicle to begin the launch will begin with a newly refined Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. These vehicles will also be accompanied by the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, Mirage G4, and the new generation of the Outlander in the second quarter of 2021. Each of these vehicles have received some form of upgrade or revision for the new year.
2021 Outlander Sport
Going on sale this fall (2020) the sporty sibling of the Mitsubishi Outlander, the Outlander Sport, got significant upgrades to the exterior and interior, with standard levels of equipment being greatly improved. Recently ranking third in the 2020 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study, the Outlander Sport will continue to improve. Look forward to new style and trim updates for the sporty SUV.
2021 Outlander PHEV
Set to go on sale in the winter, the Outlander PHEV sees some major changes with a completely new powertrain and upgrades added to each trim level. What better way to celebrate the world’s best-selling plug-in hybrid vehicle? The new updated internal combustion engine generates more horsepower, and a new, larger, and more refined electric drive system offers more all-electric range when driving solely off battery power.
2021 Mirage and Mirage G4
In the first quarter of 2021, the Mirage hatchback and Mirage Gr4 sedan will debut with an extensive exterior redesign. The Mirage has never looked so rich with a new bold style and standard safety equipment to keep drivers safe while they cruise around in style. Known as the most fuel-efficient hatchback, the Mitsubishi Mirage brings with it all new value.
2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross
Making an early entrance in the 2021 Q1, the 2022 model of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will arrive. Redesigned with a new front fascia and rear design enhancements that tease Mitsubishi’s next-generation design language, the Eclipse Cross has a fresh new look. Inside, consumers will also find a revised interior and new infotainment system. Could it be the Google-powered tech we’re waiting for?
All-New Next-Generation Outlander
Also a 2022 model, the all-new next generation Outlander is not only bigger, bolder, and better, but it will also be the quietest and best-equipped SUV Mitsubishi has ever sold in the U.S. Completely relishing in Mitsubishi’s next-generation design language, the Outlander comes with an aggressive and distinctive appearance that separates it from other SUVs. Consumers will also find the interior has been further refined for the classic Mitsubishi luxury feel, loaded with tech.
More information will be released on these vehicles as they get closer to launch, especially the global reveal of the next-gen Outlander with a launch event to be held in early 2021. We can’t wait.
