Many automakers rest on their laurels for a while following a redesign, but it’s a different story with Mitsubishi which we’ve got no choice but to give them an “A” for their efforts. And with just three years on the market now, the automaker has given the Outlander significant changes. But the only nagging question remains. Are these changes enough to elevate the model to a formidable contender for the top spot in the segment? Well, in all fairness, I’d say no!

Our research has revealed that most of the changes lie deep below its skin, although Mitsubishi mentions lots of handling, ride, and platform changes. But numerous test track drives failed to show any meaningful progress over the previous model.

There are some positive points though, but are sadly overshadowed by most of its rivals. some recommendable rivals available include the fuel-efficient 2017 Subaru Forester, the sporty 2017 Mazda CX-5, the 2017 Kia Sorento, and the 2017 Nissan Rogue.

2017 Mitsubishi Lancer Release Date and Specs

The 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer is positioned as a sporty alternative to conventional economy sedans with its strong engines, and confident steering and steering. But then again, it lacks fuel economy and interior refinement that most of its alternatives offer. Buyers should look forward to its release date in August 2017.

In order to keep the Lancer more attractive in the segment, the Japanese automaker has overhauled several outdated standard features and technologies as well as the CVT, and instead brought a number of new add-ons that promise to turn around the dwindling fortunes of the Lancer.

The truth is the automaker hasn’t offered the Mitsubishi Lancer any meaningful redesign for the past one decade, and as a result, the grey areas have started showing up. For instance, the thirsty base 2.0L four-cylinder engine trails behind its alternatives in terms of fuel economy consumption. Also, the Lancer suffers from lack of interior refinement and basic ergonomic issues.

And to add insult to injury, Mitsubishi never seems to notice them or maybe they chose to ignore these pertinent ailments, which they have become good at for a decade now. Other faults include a tilt-only steering wheel, a coarse 2.0L engine, and a mediocre interior appointment.

In all fairness, we don’t see anything appealing in the 2017 Lancer relative to its rivals. For instance, the 2017 Subaru Impreza – one of the segment’s best, offers impressive features in terms of fuel consumption, interior appointments, and overall exterior design. Other sleek alternatives include the 2017 Mazda 3, the 2017 Honda Civic, and the recently updated 2017 Ford Focus.

Interior wise, don’t expect the lancer to bowl you over with excitement. The gauges, controls, and the overall is generally plain. While there might be no major problem with that, the abundance of plastics cheapens the appearance of the cabin. Even so, the Mitsubishi Lancer still offers some cool features such as the upscale graphics of the 6.1-inch center touchscreen, and the voice activated navigation.

2017 Mitsubishi Lancer Engine Specs

Under the hood of the 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer ES model is a four-cylinder 2.0L engine. The power – 148 horsepower and 145 lbs. ft. of torque gets routed to the wheels via the five-speed manual transmission system. The Continuously Variable Transmission system is optional.

The standard transmission system provided for the SE, and SEL is the Continuously Variable Transmission system, and CVT/AWD pairing with the ES trim. A manual configured GT model returns 22/31/25 mpg, and 24/31/27 mpg with the Continuously Variable Transmission system.

The upgraded suspension equipped on the Lancer offers a decent and confident handling quality. And buyers looking for better driving dynamics will find the GT sport-tuned suspension worthwhile.

2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Release Date, Review and Specs

The 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport spy photos have resurfaced only a year after it received substantial refreshments on its technologies and styling. When you look at the Outlander Sport and all that it offers, you might find yourself dumbfounded especially when you realize the kind of value you get with the price it comes with. If the previous model is anything to go by, it is highly unlikely that Mitsubishi will offer the new model any substantial makeover. Below, we’ve prepared a rendering that describes what you can expect from the new Outlander Sport SUV as we await its crucial details such as exterior and interior redesigns, and its release date.

It is hard to say exactly the kind of changes the new model is poised to come with given the heavy camouflage claddings that cover most of the critical areas such as the front and rear profiles. But given the staggering rate at which vehicles have been improving, it is foolhardy to think the new model won’t to receive any. According to our rendering, the new model should get loads of revamped technologies and materials in addition to better driving dynamics and ride quality. With all these changes intact, the new model will be better placed to compete favorably with mainstream models.

Just like the previous model it is replacing, the newest Outlander Sport returns with exemplary safety features that include dual front seat-mounted side-impact airbags, driver’s knee airbag, and dual side-impact curtain airbags. Others include active stability and traction control, 4-wheel anti-lock brakes, a tire pressure monitoring system, electronic brake force distribution, hill start assist, adaptive cruise control, high-tech reinforced impact safety evolution, and anti-theft security alarm system.

Well, even with several refreshments, the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport wasn’t without faults. For one, the base engine lacked the punch that it rival offered. The handling and steering were lifeless. The cabin was noisy and lacked up-market refinement like some of its rivals. The passenger and cargo volume were modest, while advanced safety technologies were conspicuously missing in action. That said, we expect the newest 2017 model to address most, if not all, of the issues that marred the previous model’s reputation and consequently made its rating nosedive to a disappointing “D”.

In stark contrast to the Outlander Sport, the segment offers well-reputed vehicles such as the Honda CR-V and the Mazda CX-5. Others include the Jeep Renegade, Fiat 500X, Mazda CX-3, and the Honda HR-V. Let’s just hope Mitsubishi has gotten its senses right on the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport 2017. Meanwhile, buyers should just limit their options to the aforementioned rivals.

2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Release Date & Price

2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport release date

It is too early to speculate about its release date and price at this juncture when even the prototype can hardly be sported. Rumors have however ruled out the possibility of a price increment. As such, the new model will go for sale for an MSRP starting from around $21,390. Its release date should be expected sometime in the latter half of 2017. Don’t be surprised to see it as a 2018 year model!

As already mentioned before, details about the exterior redesigns are, as of this writing, nonexistent. But since Mitsubishi has previously indicated it has no plans of redesigning the Outlander Sport from ground up, we expect most design cues to carry over unchanged. That said, we should therefore expect windshield wiper de-icer and LED headlights, power-folding side mirrors, eighteen-inch alloy wheels, lower door sections, LED position lights, and halogen headlights,

Relative to other compact crossovers within the segment, the Outlander Sport interior is outdated and bland. We however laud Mitsubishi for offering it a solid collection of convenience items at such a price, but that is the only positive complement we can offer. The surfaces are plastered with sub-par materials unlike its rivals that get attractive and better materials.

The passenger and cargo space is wanting. The backseat space is especially crowded and barely offers comfortable head- and legroom.

Available Trims

Four trims should be available for the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport i.e. SEL, GT, SE, and ES.

Engine Specs

Rumored to be available is a 2.0L four-cylinder rated at 148 horsepower, and a 2.4L four-cylinder good for 168 horsepower. With the base engine paired to a CVT, expect the Sport ES to check in at 27 mpg in combined city/highway cruising.

Safety

2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport safety

We’re hopeful the new model will get latest safety technologies, if it is to favorably compete with its well-rounded and unforgiving rivals. The existing model earned a four out of five star rating as per the feds rating for crash impact safety protection.
