The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander is coming refreshed. One of the company’s best-selling models is about to get some visual upgrades five years after the redesign. The current third-generation model comes as a classic compact crossover and the company won’t give us any important change in the near future.
On the other side, we get used to mild updates. The first one was three years ago. This one will be mostly about visual upgrades. We are about to see few tweaks to the front end, as well as some minor changes at the back. Rest of the crossover is about to remain unchanged.
2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Changes
Speaking of the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander changes, most of them will be visual. Base design characteristics will remain the same. It will continue as a classic compact crossover with three rows of seats. The most notable changes will come at the front. We are about to see new grille, which will feature a new twin-blade grille. Also, count on a slightly reshaped bumper, with slightly sharper lines and new lighting groups. The rear bumper will follow these changes and also come slightly sharper. Other than that, things will remain pretty much much the same, except that the company has prepared a new set of wheels and a few new color options.
On the inside, things are about to remain pretty much the same. Although a compact crossover, it offers three rows of seating already in the base version, which is along with the affordable price definitely one of the model’s strongest points. Legroom and cargo space are pretty much class-average, while infotainments systems work pretty smooth.
Which safety features will be available in the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander?
In terms of safety, this crossover gets solid 4-star ratings on most crash tests. Also, there is a generous offer of safety systems. While base models come with a rearview camera only, higher trims are equipped with many more things, including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic high beams, lane departure warning, rear cross traffic alert, active lane change assist, 360-degree camera etc.

The next one is SE, which is largely the same. It only comes with a few tweaks in terms of tech features. For example, there is a smartphone integration, two USB ports, satellite radio and similar things
