Mitsubishi's next-generation Outlander SUV has been spied for the first time, wearing what appears to be a larger body and a face inspired by the Engelberg Tourer concept. The current, third-generation Outlander has been on sale since 2013, although it received a major facelift in 2015 and a smattering of smaller styling tweaks for the 2019 model year. Although unconfirmed, the new Outlander could be in local showrooms within two years.
