Disclosure: I was provided with a 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander for the duration of one week, to facilitate this review. No other compensation was received. All opinions are 100% my own.
It’s always fun to get behind the wheel of a new vehicle, and when the vehicle you receive is brand new, that is a welcomed treat! The 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander pulled up in my driveway and I couldn’t wait to get on the road for a short trip!
The Outlander promises to go where no one dares, and exploring the unknown was easy with the touchscreen navigation system. In fact, the numerous features for entertainment and safety made the day trip one to remember. The drive also provided my husband with extra time to tell me about the vehicle’s standard features, including the 2.0-liter MIVEC engine, front-wheel drive, heated side-view mirrors, rear privacy glass and more!
In addition to six standard airbags, including front, front-seat-mounted, and side-curtain airbags – the Outlander Sport adds a seventh airbag underneath the driver’s side dashboard. It’s designed to stabilize your lower body and knees during certain types of frontal collisions, providing an extra level of protection when you need it most. As a parent, that’s the reassuring safety features I need to know about!
With a fuel economy of 28 MPG, combined city and highway, you are averaged to save $1,500 over a 5 year span… allowing you to put that savings toward more road trips with your family!
And, speaking of family travel, we traveled for 2 hours with 3 children buckled in the back seat. My children had to sit close together, but they were comfortable. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is perfect for small families, though if you need more room, there is another model with an available 3rd row. The panoramic sun roof was a huge plus for enjoying the view as we toured a new city!
With the safety, technology and comfort offered in the 2015 Outlander, it was hard to give this vehicle back after a week. Rest assured, it’s on my wish list for when I am ready to make a purchase. (Hint, hint, to my husband!)
