2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Starts at $22,995
The automaker has finally announced pricing for the U.S.-spec 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander. Aside from the numerous improvements the 2016 Outlander brings, its price might be taken as the most appealing feature. The entry model of the popular crossover starts at $22,995. This means that the new MSRP is $200 lower than the base price of the 2015 Outlander.
Having in mind that the automotive industry these days has razor-thin profit margins, such a bargain must have downsides. Well, as far as we know – it doesn’t. Various upgrades that came with the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander are the automaker’s way to grab a bigger chunk of the market. The new Outlander looks more attractive thanks to the exterior redesign, but that’s just the outside.
Beneath the clothes, the crossover utilizes over a hundred of engineering and design improvements in order to provide better experience, comfort and performance.
For the starting $22,995 MSRP you can get a standard package. Nothing much, it seems, but they included new LED positioning lights and LED taillights, 18-inch alloy wheels and updated interior.
Inside the Outlander’s cabin we found improved second row, seating surfaces and accent trim. They have also redesigned the steering wheel, so the experience is noticeably different from the last model year.
“The 2016 Outlander has a dynamic new design and a long list of engineering upgrades—it literally looks, drives and feels like an entirely new vehicle,” said Mitsubishi Motors North America Executive Vice President, Don Swearingen. “Despite all of the improvements to the vehicle, we made the starting MSRP lower than the previous model year to make it an even more compelling value than before and to attract new buyers to the brand.”
The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander also comes with more affordable safety features. Its Forward Collision Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Departure Warning are now offered at lower price than before.
