The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport was just revealed, but full details don’t come out until next week at the New York Auto Show.

The updated crossover has new exterior and interior enhancements as well as the addition of a new Touring Package. The Outlander Sport is Mitsubishi’s best-selling model and the refresh gives it new front and rear bumper designs and LED running lights. On the inside, Mitsubishi has added a seven-inch Smartphone Link display audio system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The floor console and shift lever are also new.

    Mitsubishi is like trying to kill themselves. They don't redesign cars and just refresh them three times for a decade. There is almost no reason to pick a Mitsubishi over ANYTHING else - except that they have the best paddle shifters on the market, including Lamborghini and other exotics.

      Yet people still bought five times the Compass, Patriot, and Journey over the Outlander and Outlander Sport. Mitsu's had a rough decade following their separation from the former Daimler-Chrysler, it could take Mitsubishi 5 years before the first Nissubishi products roll and another 5 after that to start repairing their US reputation.
