Gaining a more expressive face and selection of new features, the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport was unveiled in Los Angeles. Keynote change to Mitsubishi's best-selling model is its new Dynamic Shield front fascia/grille treatment, a look that brings it into line with the automaker's other SUV models. Other exterior changes to the Outlander Sport include power folding mirrors with LED turn signal indicators, wheel-lip moldings and new 18-inch alloy wheel designs as well as a trio of new exterior colors: Cool Silver, Diamond White Pearl and Quartz Brown.
