Mitsubishi Outlander Preferred by Drivers Over the Competition

 

If you want a family-friendly SUV that isn’t a gas-guzzler or a road hog, you may have looked at the Hyundai Santa Fe or Hyundai Santa Fe Sport. Before you decide which to purchase, you should know that you have another choice and it’s more economical without sacrificing features.

The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander ES has an MSRP of $23,945. That’s thousands less than the Hyundai Santa Fe SE and it’s even a smaller price tag than the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.

You’ll save money at the gas station, too. The Outlander gets 25mpg in town and 30mpg on the highway. With the Santa Fe, you’ll only get 18mpg in town and 24mpg on the highway. The Santa Fe Sport is better, but it still falls short of the Outlander’s amazing mileage.

If you need seating for seven, the Outlander is an ideal choice. The Santa Fe Sport doesn’t have a third row, which is a deal-breaker for many car shoppers in the market for an SUV.

Outlander cost of ownership

The total cost of ownership for those who choose an Outlander is a lot less than it is for Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport drivers. Plus, Mitsubishi new car owners get the brand’s famous 60 month/60,000 mile basic warranty as well as their 120 month/100,000 mile Powertrain warranty. Roadside assistance is free for 60 months with unlimited mileage, as well.

For drivers who want a few more standard features, the Outlander SE is a natural choice. You’ll love the 7.0-inch touchscreen compete with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Heated front seats, push-button start, LED daytime running lights, 18-inch wheels, dual-zone climate control, and leather-wrapped shift lever and steering wheel are standard.

With the SEL Touring package, you’ll get adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, LED headlights and fog lights, blind-spot warning with lane change assist and rear cross-traffic alert, a power remote liftgate, power glass moonroof, and an amazing 710-watt Rockford-Fosgate sound system. Enjoy a heated steering wheel, multi-view camera system, and power glass sunroof with sunshade and tilt feature, as well.

Outlander is the best choice for families

With the highest possible ratings from IIHS and a five-star rating for the AWD version from NHTSA, the Outlander is a great pick for safety. The front seats offer a comfortable ride, even on long road trips. The rear seats fold forward effortlessly.

Mitsubishi sales were up in 2018 due to the popularity of the Outlander lineup. The demand for a solid, dependable, stylish, and fun-to-drive family SUV is high.

The Outlander is one of the least-expensive SUVs you can buy brand-new that seats seven. If you upgrade to the AWD version, you’ll get Mitsubishi’s well-known Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC), too.

“…a fantastic family SUV – the Outlander. I consider it to be a worthy entry on the Best Family SUV list because it is a good value. With three rows of seating, car-like handling, and a rather affordable price, the Outlander seems to be perfect for families in the never-ending search for versatility and dependability.” - The Best Family SUV: 20 Picks Across 20 years, AutoWise.com

What Outlander drivers can expect when upgrading to the V-6 AWD

The Mitsubishi Outlander GT is a four-door SUV with seating for seven that has the extra power you expect from a 3.0-liter 6-speed automatic with all-wheel-drive. MSRP starts at just $32,245. Your price could be a lot less with incentives and financing deals from Car Vision Mitsubishi in Norristown.

Advanced safety features include Blind Spot Warning (BSW) with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) and Lane Change Assist (LCA). With the “Sporttronic” 6-speed automatic transmission, the Outlander GT is a pleasure to drive.
