Mitsubishi’s Outlander Sport has actually been on sale here in the United States given that 2011 and in other places a year beyond that, suggesting it’s about time for an all-new style. However, that’s not the case. Rather, for the 2020 model year, the Outlander Sport is getting small changes, totaling up to very little more than a new face and a 1.0-inch-larger touchscreen for its control panel. Mitsubishi debuted its popular little SUV at the 2019 Geneva auto show. That’s in Switzerland, which, you’ll keep in mind, isn’t the United States. The Outlander Sport is offered all over the world as the ASX, thus the desire for a worldwide audience and the “ASX” license-plate covers in these pictures. The U.S.-spec Outlander Sport will look similar.
In March, Mitsubishi presented a revitalized variation of its ASX crossover at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. In April, we saw the exact same thing, however this time it remained in the United States, and it brought the Outlander Sport badge. Now, a number of months later on, we lastly have a concept of just how much it will cost.
2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Price
The 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport will begin at $22,495 when it goes on sale in September of this year. Mitsubishi just offered that cost, so it’s uncertain if that consists of location or not, and we’re still not exactly sure what the other trim levels will cost, however, we’ll upgrade this story as soon as Mitsubishi responds to our ask for more details. For context’s sake, a pre-refresh 2019 Outlander Sport begins at $20,945, so there’s a little a rate bump included.
2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Design
The Outlander Sport was completely remodeled for the 2020 model year. Most significantly, the front end was switched out in favor of Mitsubishi’s most current style language, obtaining much of its appearances from its bigger brother or sister, the Outlander. LED headlights and taillights are now basic on all trims, also.
2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Interior
The interior went through more than a couple of changes, too, the majority of which are focused on enhancing quality. There are a new basic black headliner, new climate-control knobs and various upholstery products. A new 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is readily available on the ES trim (as part of a plan), along with SE and GT trims. On the security front, a couple of driver-assist systems are offered (or basic, when it comes to the SE trim) consisting of automated braking, blind-spot tracking, and automated high beams.
2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Engine
Mechanically speaking, whatever’s the like it was previously. The base engine is a 2.0-liter I4 making 148 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. GT models go up to a 2.4-liter I4 with 168 hp and 167 lb.-ft. A CVT is the only transmission available because Mitsubishi erased the five-speed handbook from its base model. We’ll likely understand more about the trim-level breakdown, consisting of that necessary rates, as we get closer to its on-sale date in the fall.
