It looks like it’s the turn of the Mitsubishi Outlander to resonate with the next-gen Nissan X-Trail.

More and more Mitsubishi models take Nissan’s platforms as standard. Take the next-gen Mitsubishi Mirage for example, it will use the same platform found in the upcoming Nissan Note and the Renault Clio. Now it looks like it’s the turn of the Mitsubishi Outlander 2021 to resonate with the next-gen Nissan X-Trail. If this guess comes true, the Outlander will be the second model to take roots from a Nissan after the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance deal. Also, the next-gen Outlander is set to make its debut by 2021.

Now it looks like it’s the turn of the Mitsubishi Outlander to resonate with the next-gen Nissan X-Trail

It was revealed that the entry-level crossover will be the Outlander Sport while the Eclipse Cross represents the middle-level segment.

Carlos Ghosn, the CEO and also Chairman of Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi claimed though the X-Trail and the Outlander share common components, they will have their own features. It should be conceived that the Nissan-based Outlander may have its own styling designs and marketing strategy.

Apart from the forthcoming all-new Outlander, the future Outlander Sport is expected to take the platform of the Nissan Kicks; however, no exact date was ever disclosed. Besides, Mitsubishi has planned to enlarge their range in America since talks of getting the Montero Sport into the market is becoming fruitful. Plus, they also want to ignite the pickup game in this promising auto market with the US-spec Strada.

The trending transition to electrification in the auto market promises the 2021 Mitsubishis will come with either a plug-in hybrid or all-electric variant. It is likely the former that the future Outlander will use as the existing model is equipped with a Plug-in hybrid system in Japan, North America and some European countries. Also, the Mitsubishi Outlander 2021, the Outlander Sport, and the Eclipse Cross are expected to rely on plug-in variants.
