You have to wonder why Mitsubishi thought that completely botching the most decent aspect of this design (the front) was a good idea...

They no doubt saw Toyota and Lexus with the gaping maw grilles and noted that sales for them are good and reasoned incorrectly that the reason people are not buying Mitsubishi's substandard products is because they are not ugly enough.

I'm going to say that I quite like the facelift. I just wished that more was done to the rear styling and interior of the Outlander Sport/ASX/RVR that's all.

Indeed. It remindes me of the time, when Audi introduced the single frame grille and some "experts" sticked black tapes on the middle of the bumper to fake it :)

Is Mitsubishi respected ANYWHERE in the world for making anything other than cheap-to-buy, dodgy quality, stylistic nightmares?

TO be fair, which Mitsubishi does? The Montero/Pajero is now 19 years old in it's bones, the Lancer - though it does disappear form certain markets - did recently receive it's approx. 768th facelift as well, the previous Colt did clearly overstay it's welcome in Europe as well (and gain some not so good looking facelifts in the course of events, only to be replaced by the miserable Mirage, the only small car that has to be sold with d-segment discounts here). Clearly they have no Marchionne dropping a Chrysler 200 after 2 years on the market ;)


In that light, the AS-X/Outlander Sport is still one of their best products (apart form the L200, apparently their mainstay in Asia), but the facelift is kind of sad, as it looks like the "new grille" is actually made of chrome bits and black vinyl glued to the previous bumper.

I've lost count of the number of facelifts and updates this thing has received here in Australia since its release. Well beyond its use-by date.
