Mitsubishi dresses up the Outlander for this year’s Tokyo Auto Salon
Yesterday, Mitsubishi officially revealed the Vision Ralliart Concept. While it was not the ‘Evo’ revival we were hoping for, the concept still looked badass. With its widebody stance, distinct aero kit, massive 22-inch wheels, and matte black body finish, Mitsubishi sure was busy making the Vision Ralliart Concept stand out from the rest.
But that was not the only vehicle that Mitsubishi revealed ahead of the 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon. Also revealed early are two dressed-up versions of the all-new Outlander.
First is the Outlander Wild Adventure Style concept. Unlike the regular crossover, this one has been specifically modified for the great outdoors. According to Mitsubishi, it allows the driver “to fully enjoy outdoor leisure” thanks to the wide array of accessories in collaboration with Ogawa, a Japanese outdoor brand.
It gets a roof carrier, a trailer hitch, as well as a unique camping gear stowed at the top of the vehicle. Mitsubishi also put front, side, and rear garnishes painted red, a rear spoiler, a rear bumper protector, as well as mudguards that emphasize the Outlander’s more rugged nature. To top it all off, it has a unique Black Diamond paint finish that Mitsubishi claims emits a ‘powerful sparkle’ when struck by light.
But what if you prefer something suited for the streets instead of the wilderness? Worry not as Mitsubishi also has the Outlander Ralliart Style.
It’s equipped with the latest Ralliart accessories and is finished in a premium White Diamond exterior finish. The front, side, and rear sections come with red garnishes, while the rear spoiler is painted red in order to highlight the vehicle’s sportier look. On the other hand, the alloy wheels are finished in black while the side decals and mud flaps come with the Ralliart logo.
Mitsubishi did not mention whether the two concepts have performance upgrades. But given that the Ralliart brand was recently revived as an accessories pack, we were not expecting any changes under the hood or in terms of handling.
If you were given a choice to pick one, which of the two Outlander concepts would you get? The more outdoorsy Wild Adventure Style or the sportier-looking Ralliart Style? Let us know in the comments.
