Mitsubishi's big news at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show later this month is the North American arrival of its Outlander midsize crossover, but that model's little brother will share at least some of the spotlight by debuting a new Limited Edition package.

The Outlander Sport Limited Edition will celebrate the brand's 30th anniversary in North America with a handful of styling modifications inside and out. For now, you'll have to imagine the changes, since Mitsubishi hasn't released any images of the updated model.

Eschewing its sibling's monotone look, the Limited Edition gains blacked-out side mirrors, center bumper trim, wheel arches and roof rails. In addition, dark chrome alloy wheels and Limited Edition badging.

Inside, a six-way power driver's seat, aluminum pedals and a leather parking lever are standard. Dove grey and black two-tone leather seats are optional.

Like other Outlander Sports, the Limited Edition gains a new engine balancer shaft to smooth things out under its hood for 2013, but that's the only change of note to Mitsubishi's smaller crossover.

Look for the Normal, Illinois-built Outlander Sport Limited Edition to go on sale shortly after its debut at the end of this month in Los Angeles.
