2010 Mitsubishi Outlander Long Term Road Test


2010 Mitsubishi Outlander GT: The New Front End

August 30, 2010

At first I wasn't sure if I liked the 2010 Outlander's new styling. It seemed a little gimmicky making it look like a Lancer Evolution even though there's no turbo-4 under the hood, you know? But now that I've spent some time with our long-termer I think Mitsubishi did the right thing. While the new front-end isn't quite as cohesive with the rest of the body as before, it adds some brand identity as well as distinctiveness, the latter of which is useful in a crossover market saturated with bland looks and me-too design elements. The funny thing though is that every time I look at our Outlander now I think it needs to be lowered to be even more Evo-ish.
