Article by Christian A., on April 10, 2012

Mitsubishi introduced its refreshed 2013 Outlander at the New York Auto Show, the model’s debut in the U.S. Mitsubishi’s present top-seller received updates such as a revised and smoothed-up front and rear end and a set of standard 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels, which are now standard. The compact crossover gets the same headlights and the distinctive Mitsubishi grille, which features new chrome trim.

Mitsubishi will transfer its production from Japan to the U.S. Since the launch of the Outlander, Mitsubishi’s Japan plant has been rolling out the model. But the automaker has decided that for the rest of its existence, the U.S. plant will build it. The CVT of the Outlander has been improved so that shifts are smoother and it has an enhanced driving feel.

It also comes with a new multi-link rear suspension that will add to its ride quality and handling. What’s now offered as standard equipment are a leather-covered shift knob, steering wheel and standard Bluetooth. When customers choose the range-topping SE model, they will get a six-speaker audio system, HID headlights, push button ignition and smart key passive entry.

The enhanced 2013 Outlander Sport compact crossover utility vehicle (CUV) was unveiled by Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) at the 2012 New York International Auto Show.

The modernised Outlander Sport models built in the US will supply Mitsubishi dealers in the States as well as overseas markets. The 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport will be available in the US in early August 2012 with a starting MSRP of $19,170.
