2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport to Show New Face at New York

After just two years on the market, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has had some work done for the 2013 model year, and it's heading to the 2012 New York International Auto Show to reveal its new look.

Although Mitsubishi didn't want to spoil the surprise with a teaser image, it did clue us on a few minor details. The revised 2013 Outlander Sport will show off fresh styling, thanks to some nips and tucks to the front and rear fascias, while a host of design and equipment improvements define the interior. The changes are not all cosmetic, though. The 2013 Outlander Sport receives a revamped rear suspension, and despite having its continuously-variable transmission  calibrated to improve acceleration and responsiveness for the 2012 model year (pictured), Mitsubishi tweaks it again for 2013.

We're wondering what Mitsubishi has up its sleeves since last year's model received a few updates. A rear back-up camera was added to the Premium package, while chrome accents, new wheel designs, and insulation to better muffle engine noise were also new for 2012.

Mitsubishi should do the slight cosmetic tweaks to all their models in order to keep up with other competitors so as not lose its base and attract more buyers. I believe that has been the formula by many successful manufacturers. They should also be modern in their design to compete head to head. Keep the commercial ads going to let the public know what are the benefits in a Japanese car compared to Korean and other medicre Japanese brands!
