What’s New for the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport?

The Outlander Sport lost a trim for the 2018 model year, leaving the GT in 2017. While the powertrains remain the same for the new Outlander, the SUV’s safety has improved with available driver-assist technologies like Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW).
