Mitsubishi ASX, Mirage and Lancer will receive a facelift in the coming 12 months – Report


Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Will be influenced by the ‘dynamic shield’ style design language.

In the next 12 months, the Mitsubishi ASX, Lancer and Mirage will receive a facelift, which includes a new design influenced by the ‘dynamic shield’ style language first seen on the 2016 Outlander. This was confirmed by Mitsubishi Motors North America executive vice president, Don Swearingen, in an interview with Car Advice.

The next ASX could draw heavy influence from the XR-PHEV II (pictured).

The next Mitsubishi ASX will be a heavily reworked version of the current model, rather than a new generation altogether that was expected when they unveiled the XR-PHEV II at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. For the U.S. market, production of the facelifted ASX will begin in October, and is expected to arrive in showrooms between November and December.

In 2016, Mitsubishi will finally introduce the Mirage (in facelifted form) in the U.S. market. It will be launched in the February/March timeframe, and feature new design elements from the Outlander and facelifted ASX.

The company is also planning to introduce a facelift for the Lancer, which is already 8 years old in current generation. Apparently, Mitsubishi’s global chief has confirmed that the development of a next generation Lancer has been dropped indefinitely.
