More, the Concept S could also represent our first look at Mitsubishi’s new production styling, first previewed last year with the GC and XR concepts.
Those show-cars are expected to be a glimpse of new Pajero and ASX models - but neither concept is likely to reach production without some dramatic changes.
Today’s unveiling of the Concept S - a re-imagining of the existing Outlander’s nose and tail - is likely the best look yet at how last year’s concepts will be transformed into showroom-ready models.
Up front, we see a decidedly more subtle take on the face of the GC and XR models with larger headlights, a familiar two-bar grille, and that new chrome garnish we can likely expect to see on more Mitsubishis in the future.
At the rear, you’ll find a bold new tail-light and reflector arrangement, sitting atop a second iteration of the chrome garnish in an anvil-like arrangement.
Mitsubishi hasn’t revealed any technical details for this ‘new’ concept, although it is likely that the carmaker has focused its attention on the SUV’s looks.
Watch for more details - and, perhaps, word of an impending Outlander facelift - at next month’s Paris Motor Show.
