I have owned quite a few vehicles in my time, but honestly they have all been Dodge or Chrysler. I was thrilled at the opportunity to test drive a 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander. Besides being safe & functional, it is very sporty looking. I definitely did not feel like a soccer mom driving around in it!
The 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander is an SUV, but it felt more like a car. It was lower to the ground and did not have nearly as many blind spots as other SUVs on the market. Inside it felt spacious, and I loved the option for the third row seating in the back. The option to have seating for up to 7 people is very helpful especially with growing families and car pooling. When not using the third row seating, it easily folded into the car for a very spacious trunk. I was surprised how much I could actually fit in the trunk. I wasn’t sure it would fit a lot of grocery bags, but I never had a problem.
My favorite feature of the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander was how safe they made it. The SUV has 7 airbags throughout the vehicle including a knee impact airbag on the driver’s side. The car let me know when someone was getting too close to me as well as if I was crossing into another lane of traffic. The back-up camera was very helpful, especially in busy parking lots. I LOVED the adaptive cruise control. When other vehicles would slow down in front of me, the Outlander would automatically slow down so I would be the same distance from the car in front of me. Then when the car would switch lanes, the Outlander would gradually increase back up to what the cruise was set for. It was very helpful and I liked not having to keep toggling the cruise buttons.
All in all the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander was a great vehicle. It had all of the bells and whistles I could dream of; seat warmers, rain sensing wipers, brake assist, hill start assist, rear back up camera, automatic power lift gate with FOB opening, automatic start, GPS, and more. The only thing missing for our family was a TV. I would definitely recommend the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander. What a great experience!
