The Mitsubishi Vision Ralliart Concept Might Revive the Sporty Sub-Brand

With the debut of a concept car and two special-edition packages ahead of the Tokyo Auto Salon, Mitsubishi took a step toward reviving its long-dormant Ralliart sub-brand, which has been dormant for more than a decade.

The Vision Ralliart Concept is based on the automaker's Outlander SUV. It features a low-riding suspension, larger tires, a body kit, and a dark gray and black paint scheme. It has a sinister look that contrasts with the Ralliart Style appearance package Mitsubishi unveiled for the Japanese-market Outlander and the smaller Eclipse Cross models.


Ralliart Style package comes with red and black exterior accents and dark-finish alloy wheels.

Additionally, Mitsubishi unveiled a modified Outlander that features a roof basket and side steps that was created in partnership with Japanese outdoor equipment brand Ogawa.


Mitsubishi has not said whether the Ralliart Style package will be available in the United States.

The name Ralliart dates from the early 1980s when a privateer racing team used it in Europe. From the 1990s until the early 2000s, Ralliart was a major manufacturer of rally cars. Andrew Cowan, the founder of Ralliart and a former racer, sold most of the company to Mitsubishi in 2003. Mitsubishi ceased most competition activities following the 2008-2009 recession, but confirmed in May 2021 that it would bring back the Ralliart nameplate.


Mitsubishi briefly offered a Ralliart Lancer in the United States, which bridged the gap between mainstream models and the WRX-rivaling Lancer Evolution series. Browse Mitsubishi Outlander models for sale.
