Mitsubishi 2017 Model Overview

The biggest news at Mitsubishi for the 2017 model year has nothing to do with product. After a scandal in which Mitsubishi was found to have falsified fuel-economy estimates, Nissan Motor took a controlling 34% ownership stake in the company, which builds a couple of small car models for Nissan’s global markets. Nevertheless, enthusiasts continue to mourn the passing of the iconic Lancer Evolution while few consumers appear to have noticed the return of the Mirage subcompact, now in roomier sedan flavor.

Detailed changes for each 2017 Mitsubishi car and SUV model are shown on the pages that follow.
