Changes to 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

As more drivers set sights on the growing segment of sport-inspired crossover vehicles, a great deal of attention is directed toward what separates the category’s most popular models from their closest competition. One extension of that attention is the close eye that many drivers keep on new features that may be included in the next model-year rendition of their favorite crossover.

Take Mitsubishi’s popular offering for example. The automaker recently announced a number of changes to the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. And while many fans of the five-seat utility vehicle have welcomed those changes with open arms, Continental understands that not every Mitsubishi driver has the time to scour the net for the latest and greatest Outlander Sport information. This is why Continental Mitsubishi has synthesized all the info pertinent to the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, presenting it here for the dealership’s Chicagoland faithful.

2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Upgrades

The confirmed changes to the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport can be organized into three simple categories. When compared with the 2014 model, the 2015 Outlander Sport offers drivers better drive response, increased fuel economy, and a sharper aesthetic. Pedal response benefits from the implementation of Mitsubishi’s next-generation CVT, or continuously variable transmission. Transmissions translate engine power to the vehicle’s wheel axles, and Mitsubishi’s next-gen CVT means a quicker, more responsive translation of Outlander Sport’s engine power.

Altogether, estimates indicate that 2015 Outlander Sport models mated to the CVT will also succeed in saving fuel. With the next-gen transmission, both front-wheel drive and AWD models of the vehicle see an increase of one mpg.

Turning now to the aesthetic, drivers cataloging changes to the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport will notice a unique shine glowing forth from the vehicle’s front fascia. For 2015, SE models of the Outlander Sport will feature LED running lights for added visibility and safety.
