During the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, Mitsubishi unveiled its redesigned Outlander crossover model which will reach American dealers early next summer.

The seven-passenger Outlander went on sale in Japan this week with a price tag of around $30,000 based on recent conversation rates. The Japanese automaker has not yet determined pricing for the American market, but did confirm that it will be available as a 2014 model next year.

Joining the standard Outlander model will be its plug-in hybrid variant, which debuted at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. The Outlander PHEV is due in the U.S. late 2013 or early 2014.

    I dont understand the new exterior design.. It doesnt look like a progression of the current model.. In fact it already looks dated like an older vehicle.. We have a 2012 Outlander and also had 2007.. The redesign of the 2007 looked more modern than this new version... I am very disappointed in Mitsu.. Ive been a long time customer.. I owned 4 eclipses, 2 Montero sports & 3 outlanders, but not sure my next vehicle will be a Mitsubishi.. All other car companies are building exciting new vehicles and adding to their lineup, but Mitsu is going in the other direction.. Ive been a big supporter of mitsubishi cars in the past, but what have you done for me lately?

      Just wanted to add that even though the last Eclipse was not so much a sports car, dropping it was a dissapointment.. Im now a family man who still loves performance but needs more room. It would be nice to see a hot hatch from Mitsu to compete with GTI and Mazdaspeed3. Lance sportback does not count.. Not as attractive to compete, the Ralliart is overpriced!!
