2018 Mitsubishi Outlander – Stylish Exterior and Interior Design
Though the Mitsubishi Outlander will be larger in size in comparison to the Eclipse Cross and Mitsubishi Outlander Sport its passenger carrying capacity is not affected by its size.

The front of the Outlander will have the dynamic shield grille which is present on the new cars that have been launched by Mitsubishi. The shape of the bumper and the headlights will be modified to make the new Outlander look more masculine.
The rear of the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander is likely to be inspired by one of its biggest competitors in the market, the Eclipse Cross. The total weight of the car is expected to decrease which will make it much lighter. The overhangs will be much shorter which will add to the aggressiveness of the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander.
The interior will undergo a major change in terms of looks, comfort as well as quality. The interior upholstery will exude more sophistication and luxury. The Outlander will have sliding middle seats. The size of the central infotainment screen will be increased. The quality of the sound speakers will also be improved.
However, the last row of seats will also have ample space which was a problem in the previous versions of the Outlander. All the seats will have cup holders as well. The space in the trunk will also be great with the third row of seats up as well as down.
