TOKYO, Dec. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- MITSUBISHI MOTORS CORPORATION (MMC) today teased the first image of the highly anticipated next-generation OUTLANDER. The vehicle will debut first in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico in February 2021, and follow soon-after in other international markets.

The complete transformation from dimensions to exterior styling previews the design direction for the future MITSUBISHI MOTORS' models.

"The all-new OUTLANDER is the first model epitomizing the new generation of Mitsubishi design and the frontrunner of our design strategy."
