2010 Mitsubishi Outlander GT: A Little Nip/Tuck
October 22, 2010
Walking around out long-term Outlander, I was struck by a few styling elements that I'd change. Nothing major, just a little work on the nose and chin. As it is, I think the front overhang is a bit too long. I would shorten it just a bit and give the grille a slight upward tilt. I did a quick Photochop this morning. Click through to see the results.
Here you can see a before and after animation. I think it gives the front a more compact and aggressive appearance. Of course, I'm no engineer, so I can;t say what effect this would have on cooling, internal packaging and safety, but the Outlander Sport's nose looks even shorter to me.
What do you think? Were things better left untouched, or do you like the stubbier nose?
