The facelifted 2016 Outlander will not have a face like the 2015 Outlander, but it will probably have almost everything else the same as the 2015 Outlander

Mitsubishi is testing out the new 2016 Outlander in the wild, and it’s been spotted wearing what is expected to be the first example of the automaker’s new brand-wide front fascia. You can probably guess what that all entails: new bumper, new headlights, and a completely new grille.

In the back, we’re likely talking similar revisions to lighting and bumpers, which usually accompanies any significant changes to a new model. Standard stuff, all.

We’d show you ourselves, but since we don’t have fancy spy photographers scoping out all of Mitsubishi’s latest moves, we’ll just say that a little birdy named CarScoops passed this one our way.

As for the rest of the 2016 Outlander? Well, here’s what we can glean: it sure is an Outlander.

Hopefully, the facelifted 2016 Outlander looks more like the Concept-S than not

There are indications that the 2016 Outlander would bear some resemblance to the Outlander PHEV Concept-S that Mitsubishi showed off at the Paris Motor Show. The most striking feature about that particular concept was a revised front fascia that looked more streamlined and modern than what the current Outlander offers.

Of course, it can also be expected that whatever face the 2016 Outlander wears will also eventually adorn the 2016 Outlander PHEV, which hopefully finds its way to US dealerships at the end of next year.

When we’ll see the facelifted 2016 Outlander in full, we can’t say for certain. We know that it won’t be tomorrow in LA, since Mitsubishi’s conference timeslot appears to have been reserved almost entirely for a lunch break.
