I had the opportunity to test drive the new 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and it was such a treat! I had no clue that there was a sport version of the Outlander, and was intrigued from the moment it showed up. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is the perfect vehicle if you want to head out for a date night or quick day trips. For me the big thing is ensuring that we have enough space for our kids and any car seats that are needed. The Outlander Sport perfectly fit my two year old’s car seat while we took my 13 year old back to school in Charleston, SC. There is also a huge amount of trunk space (which was perfect for holding all of the Christmas goodies she).
And because I am an Apple fangirl, I love how the vehicle comes equipped with Apple Carplay. The 7in touchscreen display was was perfect! I love how as soon as I plugged my phone in Siri asked what I needed-how cool is that? I could access all of my play lists with a simple “Hey Siri, can you play Missy Elliot“! Since we were headed to huge NYE event, that was the perfect touch needed to get the night started!
Don’t worry if you don’t have an iPhone, it also comes equipped with Android Auto, so you can have the same awesome car riding experience!
Another beautiful feature was the gorgeous (and almost never ending) moon roof! The first time I opened it all I could think was WOW!! From the rain-sensing windshield wipers to the lane departure assist, Mitsubishi did not hold back when it came to adding awesome features to the vehicle!
Forward Collision Mitigation
The Forward Collision Mitigation System7 helps prevent or reduce the severity of frontal collisions by warning you of a vehicle or person at an unsafe distance ahead and then applying the brakes as necessary
7 Air Bag System
In addition to six standard airbags5 — including front, front-seat-mounted, and side-curtain airbags—the Outlander Sport adds a seventh underneath the driver’s side dashboard.
Lane Departure Warning
The Lane Departure Warning (LDW)4 system uses an onboard camera to monitor lane position in front of the vehicle audibly and visually, alerting the driver if it detects the vehicle leaving its lane unintentionally.
Thank you so much Mitsubishi for letting us test drive the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport! We loved it!
