New Mitsubishi Outlander Rendered By Theo Chin
The upcoming Mitsubishi Outlander is due a replacement, which is said to be coming later this year. There are already a load of spy shots of this 4th generation family SUV in camoflage. It seems to sport much more unconventional proportions than before, but if the new Triton is anything to go by, it’s going to look pretty handsome.
Theophilus Chin was kind enough to show us what he thought the Triton might eventually look like from both the front and the rear.
It looks like the Triton face is a primary feature of this render. Three tiers of lights are shown here. Presumably those are DRLs and turn signals at the top, with high and dipped beams in the centre and foglights at the bottom, forming part of the Dynamic Shield grille face.
The Mitsubishi logo seems to be a radar sensor for autonomous braking/ active cruise control functionality.
Large rims that look way over 18″ are shown in this render. A blacked out A-pillar and black roof gives this possible Outlander design a floating roof look and a premium two-tone look.
From the rear, the vehicle has a stout appearance with a rather thick C-pillar and slim taillights. The bumper reaches up from the rear wheel arch and up to the taillight graphic. A sharkfin antenna is seen from this angle. It’s actually quite a good looking design from both angles. Let’s hope the end product looks just as good.
About the Mitsubishi Outlander
The Outlander is currently in its 3rd generation and has undergone two facelifts. It’s one of two family SUVs sold in Malaysia with a 7-seat option under RM135K.
At the 2015 New York International Auto Show, Mitsubishi debuted a heavily revised Outlander for the 2016 model year. The vehicle features new design language called “Dynamic Shield” that will be the basis for future vehicles in different segments. The revised headlights now include LED DRLs with the option of full LED headlights. Inside the cabin, Mitsubishi made refinements to the steering wheel, headliner, rear folding seats, and door controls.
Besides cosmetic changes, the updated Outlander has somewhat reduced cabin noise via increased use of sound insulation, thicker door glass, dynamic suspension and differential dampers, and thicker weatherstripping. The suspension and steering are re-tuned and a new generation Jatco CVT8 transmission introduced for four-cylinder models. The revised SUV first went on sale in Russia in April 2015, followed by the Australia in June and Canada and the Caribbean in July.
