This makes its $200 cheaper than 2015MY and you also get additional standard equipment including LED positioning lights, LED taillights, restyled 18-inch wheels and an updated interior cabin boasting a new steering wheel, better second-row seating, fresh accent trim and revised seating surfaces along with an improved headliner.

 

More importantly, Mitsubishi says the facelifted Outlander comes with more than 100 engineering and design improvements. While the cosmetic tweaks are obvious, the engineers also worked on the suspension, electric power steering system and on the chassis. NVH levels have been reduced thanks to a new noise-insulating windshield, better weather stripping, thicker rear door glass and more sound deadening material.

 

Depending on version, the 2016 Outlander facelift can be had with a plethora of safety and assistance systems such as adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and forward collision mitigation which are all available at a lower price tag compared to the 2015 model year.

In terms of engines, customers will be able to get either a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder with 166 bhp (123 kW) and 162 lb-ft (219 Nm) or a beefier 3.0-liter V6 with 224 bhp (167 kW) and 215 lb-ft (291 Nm). The smaller engine works with a newly developed CVT whereas the larger unit is teamed up with a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
