New Design for the 2020 Outlander Sport

The Mitsubishi brand is always looking to the future. The compact Mitsubishi Outlander Sport will be one of the first models to wear the brand’s new design language. The design for the 2020 Outlander Sport features a bold new grille, a flatter hood, and new headlights.

Updates continue inside with improvements in the materials throughout the cabin. These include better seat upholstery, new climate control knobs that are easier to grip, a black headliner, and a new 8-inch touchscreen system.

Nate Berg, director of product planning for Mitsubishi Motors North America, said to CNET, “Design will be a key strategic thing moving forward for Mitsubishi Motors. We will continue to focus on refining our design.”

Many of the new design features we see in the Outlander Sport debuted in the Engelberg Tourer concept we saw at earlier car shows. This design language gives the Mitsubishi brand a more rugged persona.

Under the hood, the Outlander Sport remains the same with a standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 148 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque. Buyers will also be able to choose from a variety of available active safety features, including automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring, and automatic emergency braking.

While we anticipate its release, test-drive the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport in Rahway, NJ, at Bell Mitsubishi.

Mitsubishi Mirage Crossover Could Be Coming in 2020

The Mitsubishi Mirage is a fuel-efficient five-door hatchback designed for those with active lifestyles. This affordable car is ideal for college students, budget-conscious buyers, and those who simply want a car that meets their needs. If you’ve been considering the Mirage, take note: the 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage may be getting a little bigger and better.

Sales of the Outlander and Outlander Sport are going strong, and Mitsubishi is changing its lineup to meet customer demands. In doing so, the automaker is decreasing sedan offerings and increasing its crossover lineup. The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is the latest crossover to join the brand, and it’s selling well.

Recent rumors are that the Mitsubishi Mirage might be transitioning from a small hatchback to a subcompact crossover, like the Eclipse did. Response, a Japanese publication, revealed that Mitsubishi is working on introducing a brand-new crossover that could be replacing the existing Mirage. The next-generation crossover could arrive as soon as 2020.

If this is the case, the 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage will grow in size, offering more room for drivers with active lifestyles. The upcoming crossover will likely keep the same name and offer improved performance and capability.

While Mitsubishi hasn’t confirmed the news, it isn’t out of the question that the popular Mirage hatchback could grow in order to appeal to a wider demographic. If this change is coming, we at Bell Mitsubishi would be excited to have the redesigned Mitsubishi Mirage crossover on our lot.
