Outlander is one of the company’s best-selling models. Sport trim is perhaps the most popular choice among the customers. Mitsubishi released additional information about the upcoming model. The 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport will arrive with a redesign. Japanese automaker revealed new photos of the ASX model, a European version of Outlander.

This crossover is present for almost a decade now and it suffered three significant facelifts. Now, the fourth redesign is about to happen and it will be the most drastic redesign so far. The crossover will now look closer to the Eclipse Cross model and it will look very modern and attractive. Unfortunately, interior changes aren’t that major. Also, things under the hood will stay intact.

2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Changes

The latest redesign will make that the newest SUV 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport look more like the Eclipse Cross model. However, the design still looks unique and very modern. Changes are so drastic that the Sport trim looks like the all-new vehicle. The proportions are perfect, still, some customers find this crossover too narrow.

LED fog lights are new and the Dynamic Shield grille will remain. Also, turn signals are revised. The rear end will suffer as well. Taillights are more modern and are looking edgier. 19-inch wheels that are optional on the base model are standard on the Sport trim. Aerodynamics are additionally improved and we like the sporty skid-plate under the bumpers.

Cabin Features and Techs

When we hear the word “redesign” we imagine a total revamp that includes both exterior and interior changes. However, that is not the case with the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. Interior will largely remain and will offer slight upgrades only. The infotainment system is up to date and some optional features are standard now.

An 8-inch display is larger than the previous unit and navigation system is changed. There will be more USB ports as well. Besides that, the rest of the interior will stay intact. That includes both the design and the interior layout. Still, the cabin is very modern and comfortable. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard now.

It is a fuel-efficient unit that keeps the intake valves open and the compression rate is impressive. The European Outlander called “ASX” offers a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. This powertrain returns 148 horses and 144 lb-ft of torque.

Outlander Sport PHEV variant will become available too. Hybrid variant comes with slightly more power and 22-mile all-electric driving range. On top of that, 74 MPGe is more than the satisfying figure.
