Mitsubishi 2017 Model Year Update


This ain’t your father’s Mitsubishi. And for those focused more on ‘economy’ than ‘Evo’, that’s probably a good thing. The Evolution is no more, Mitsubishi’s truck-tough Montero is no longer sold in the States, and the Mirage sedan and hatch serve as little more than price holders in a constricted lineup. With that, sales are up and Mitsubishi is working hard on a revamp of its entire lineup. The newest addition comes this fall in the form of a small crossover, the 2018 Eclipse Cross, pictured above.

MITSUBISHI i-MIEV: The least expensive EV available in the US market obtains an optional navigation package. The nav unit includes a seven-inch touch screen, Fuse hands-free link, USB port, rearview camera and steering wheel controls.

LANCER: The Lancer lives, albeit without the mojo intrinsic to the high-performance Evo, now discontinued. For ’17 a rear camera is standard on the small four door, along with new wheels and an optional Sun and Sound package.

MIRAGE: Mitsu’s entry-level hatch and sedan receive an aggressive refresh for 2017, with an enhanced exterior (new front fascia, hood, grille and wheels), a bump in horsepower and improved suspension. Also, two new colors are added: Wine Red and Sunrise Orange.

OUTLANDER SPORT: While awaiting an all-new Sport, Mitsubishi’s compact crossover adds automatic climate control, upgraded seat fabric and – as announced at this year’s Chicago Auto Show – a Limited Edition trim.

OUTLANDER: Mitsubishi’s large three-row crossover receives a new, entry-level All-Wheel Control 4WD system and enhanced technology.
