Mitsubishi Outlander facelift – First half 2015
An updated version of the Mitsubishi Outlander will hit Australian roads during the first half of 2015.
Mitsubishi is rushing through the facelift for its third-generation mid-sized SUV, which only launched locally a little over two years ago.
The updates will focus on the car’s exterior styling, and are expected to take inspiration from the Outlander PHEV S-Concept that debuted at October’s Paris motor show.
The facelift is expected to bring angular headlights integrated into a bold horizontal grille, sharper bumper and intake lines, and restyled tail-lights and rear bumper.
The cabin is also expected to be freshened up with new trim patterns and materials.

Mitsubishi Triton – Q2
The heavily updated Mitsubishi Triton promises big improvements in efficiency, safety, dynamics and refinement when it arrives in Australia in the second quarter of 2015.
The replacement for the 10-year-old workhorse will be powered by a new 133kW/430Nm 2.4-litre four-cylinder direct-injection diesel engine, paired with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
Mitsubishi is hoping stiffer underpinnings and an expanded safety package will boost the 2015 Triton’s ANCAP rating to five stars to put it back on the shopping lists of many major fleet buyers with stringent safety requirements.
While exterior styling updates are evolutionary only, the overhauled cabin is decidedly more car-like, gaining higher-quality materials and an infotainment and climate control cluster similar to that of the Outlander.
