What we saw in Cleveland was an economy car that you cannot call economy. Nissan updating the styling across the Nissan car line, and the Versa was given a major facelift. You’ll notice the new wide, front grille, larger front headlights and a new round outline from bumper to bumper.

The new Outlander GT is the next generation of the popular, best selling Mitsubishi SUV. While we couldn’t dig really deep into the Outlander, the information Mitsubishi had about this car was enough to get us excited.
Mitsubishi is calling the 2014 Outlander “a fresh new contemporary face that is both appealing and functional with reduced aerodynamic drag.”
