Given the sheer quantity of camouflage worn, though, it's probably fair to surmise that the updates to the Outlander's front end will be quite extensive. The facelift will possibly encompass a new bonnet, and there will almost certainly be new, slimmer headlights, a revised grille, and a reworked front bumper treatment.
At the rear, changes seem likely to include new taillights, redesigned bumper and a revised garnish design along the bottom edge of the rear windscreen.
From what little we can see of the interior, the general design of the dashboard seems to be tweaked rather than overhauled.
This facelift follows on a from a batch of styling and other tweaks applied to the third-generation Outlander earlier this year, barely 16 months after it went on sale in Australia. That package included a new grille, revised bumpers and subtle black wheel arch lips, all of which combined to give the Outlander a less awkward appearance.
It's expected that the Outlander facelift will be unveiled publicly revealed towards the end of this year, and be available in showrooms some time in 2015.
