The approaching 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander is among the smallest crossovers that are offering the third row of seats. The Outlander comes with two engine choices and five trim levels. Even a plug-in hybrid model is in the offer. An all-wheel-drive configuration is optional and Outlander comes with the five-stars safety rating.
The price is very affordable and the warranty is among the class-leading figures. The interior comes with great comfort and plenty of standard features. The exterior holds a modern design and the wide athletic stance provides the sense of sportiness. Sadly, the changes to the upcoming model are not so significant.
2019 Mitsubishi Outlander facelift
The exterior of the all-new 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander looks very simple and subtle. However, the styling looks modern and attractive in its own way. The front end will get a new grille that is available in a different shape and the headlights are reshaped as well. LED units are standard, so the fog lamps and headlamps are now much more modern. The front bumper is bigger than on the current model.
The side profile adds standard 18-inch alloy wheels or optional 19-inch alloys. The rear end comes with a new roof spoiler and larger tailgate. The aerodynamics are improved and higher trim levels are offering features such as power tailgate and auto-dimming side mirrors. Rain sensing wipers are optional on all models except the GT.
2019 Mitsubishi Outlander interior looks brilliant
This SUV comes with three rows of seats. If you opt for the PHEV model, two rows are the only option. No matter which model you opt for, the comfort is great thanks to the soft-touch materials and upscale upholstery. The design looks clean and the cabin is very quiet. The arrangement of the controls will stay intact and generally, the layout of all the buttons is pleasing.
Black-gloss finishes are boosting the premium feel even more and other dark accents are looking brilliant. The cargo area is ample and folding the seats flat are providing 65 cubic feet of space. The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander offers a lot of standard features which includes a 7-inch touchscreen, keyless entry, Bluetooth and a rearview camera. Moreover, dual-zone climate control is standard too, while the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are optional. Sunroof is optional just like the Rockford Fosgate audio system.
