Mitsubishi SUV Review

Few people are aware just how established the Mitsubishi name really is. Although this manufacturer wasn’t founded in America until 1981, the roots date back to 1917. This is a name that became very poplar for those wanting a sporty and futuristic car that was ahead of its time, which is what they got in the Mitsubishi Eclipse.

Mitsubishi SUV Reviews

Few people are aware just how established the Mitsubishi name really is. Although this manufacturer wasn’t founded in America until 1981, the roots date back to 1917. This is a name that became very poplar for those wanting a sporty and futuristic car that was ahead of its time, which is what they got in the Mitsubishi Eclipse.

Today, the Mitsubishi line has matured. Their vehicles are attractive yet practical. Not only do they offer fantastic cars, they have made a name for themselves in the SUV market, with their Outlander and Outlander Sport.

Priced just right, the 2013 Outlander has a starting MSRP of only $22,6955, and offers more than you might expect. It does find itself in a rapidly growing compact crossover segment, but manages to hold its own against Mazda CX-5, Ford Escape, Kia Sorento, Chevrolet Equinox and Honda CR-V.

The 2013 Outlander marks the last version of its generation as a redesign will come for 2014. For this model year, all trims receive heated side mirrors, a feature that was only available on higher trims until now.

This cabin is roomy, reliable, strong and fuel-efficient. There is not really much more you could ask for in an SUV, especially at this price point. Outlander is available in ES, SE and GT trims, all boasting a unique flip-down tailgate that can support as much as 440 pounds! There is also a jump seat in the cargo area that may come in handy from time-to-time. Outlander technically markets itself as a seven-passenger vehicle, but the jump seat is really targeted towards family with young children.

ES comes with 16-inch steel wheels, power accessories, keyless entry and a six-speaker sound system while SE adds on 18-inch alloy wheels, turn signal mirrors, paddle shifters mounted on the steering column, sliding second row seats, Fuse hands-free link system and a whole lot more. With only a $1,300 price difference, it is hard to not consider going with this upgraded trim. Outlander GT gives you a V6 engine, chrome accents and a few other thoughtful extra. Of course, there are plenty of packages available for customization as well, like the Touring and Premium Packages.

The other contender in the SUV market is the Outlander Sport. It is in the small crossover segment with Nissan Juke and Kia Sportage. Although this market is full, and many simply opt for crossovers that are a little larger, Outlander Sport deserves its fair glance, especially at a starting MSRP of only $19,170.

Updated styling is seen on the 2013 model with higher quality speakers and improved sound insulation. All-wheel drive is also now available on the base trim. This compact crossover is available as an ES and SE. the ES includes 16-inch steel wheels, four-speaker sound system, USB/iPod interface, keyless entry, heated mirrors and power accessories. SE gives you attractive 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic wipers, a six-speaker sound system, upgraded upholstery and heated front seats. There are also several bundles of options available in the Navigation, Exterior Sport and Premium packages.

While your first thought might not be to consider Outlander or Outlander Sport, if you are shopping for an SUV, you really should take a second glance. With their affordable pricing, contemporary styling, long warranty and thoughtful features, you may find they have exactly what you are looking for!
