Here's a great read that covers all the things that stand out about the new Outlander.

"Bigger, Bolder, Better?

It is the Outlander's outward appearance that takes an outside leap forward. In keeping with other recent Mitsubishi crossovers' design, the Outlander adopts a chunky, girthy appearance that is a wholesale improvement over the somewhat tall, narrow, and slab-sided look worn by the old model. There are big square fog lamp nacelles on each front corner, thin headlights, and wider taillights that work nicely with the pumped-out fenders and more prominent rear shoulders. It's modern, fresh, and stands out—if not exactly beautiful.

Dimensions play a role here—the 2022 Outlander is a full 2.0 inches wider and 1.5 inches taller. The wheelbase stretches by 1.4 inches, to a long-for-the-segment 106.5 inches. Besides helping the Outlander grow out of its previously dorky frame, the growth carves out more interior space. Legroom is up by 1.0 inch in front, and 1.1 inches in the second row.

The Mitsubishi's third-row seat is split 50:50, while the second row features a 40:20:40 split. This means one can individually fold each second row seat component, along with each third-row seat component, making it possible to carry human cargo on one side in the second and third rows of seats, and actual cargo on the other, or vice versa. It's highly reconfigurable.

A Sleek New Interior

The old Outlander's interior was ... dated. There was little question it was in desperate need of an update. Consider that handled by the 2022 model. Similar to the exterior styling, the Outlander's interior design visually exaggerates the actual dimensional boost in width by adopting a pleasing horizontal theme on its dashboard.

On appearances alone, the cabin sees a big upgrade in material quality and the use of color and texture. The air vents hide within a full-width panel that's otherwise upholstered in black or gray fabric on entry-level ES models; black suede on the mid-level SE; and brown, black, or gray leather on SEL and SEL Touring trims. The armrests and seat stitching colors are coordinated with those dashboard panels, and combines with either piano-black or actual aluminum accents.

Atop the sleek dashboard Mitsubishi places one of two modern touchscreens that are larger than the in-dash unit offered previously. An 8.0-inch display is standard, and includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, as well as a 7.0-inch digital gauge cluster display stuffed between analog speedometer and tachometer gauges. A 9.0-inch unit is optional and includes navigation (as well as the smartphone screen mirroring tech), and brings with it a 12.3-inch fully digitized gauge cluster with readouts for speed, ancillaries, and more. Need more screen space? Mitsubishi has a new (optional) head-up display that projects a 10.8-inch field of information onto the inside of the windshield.

Mitsubishi also sweated the Outlander's details, applying a knurled, bumpy texture to the drive mode selector and HVAC control knobs. Nicer trim levels boast diamond-quilted seat leather, and there are thoughtfully placed and attractive accent lighting for helping occupants find, say, the door handles in the dark.

Storage And Safety

Clever storage abounds. Next to the nifty folding rear seats, Mitsubishi ensures every passenger has a slot-like smartphone holder, as well as ready access to cupholders. Up front, there is a wireless phone charger and USB and USB-C ports. In a first for Mitsubishi, the Outlander offers three-zone automatic climate control (one zone for each front seat and another zone for the rear area), and the Outlander is finally available with a huge panoramic sunroof.

A full complement of modern active safety features are on offer, and standard kit includes blind-spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, rear parking sensors, and rear automated emergency braking. Automated emergency braking (forward), lane-departure warning, driver attention monitoring, forward collision warning, automatic high-beam control, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keep assist are available. A new MI-Pilot Assist combines the adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist functions to enable assisted driving on freeways, and has the ability to slow for curves based on navigation data."
