*disclaimer: thanks to the amazingness of DriveShop, I was able to drive the Blue Steel Mitsubishi Outlander Sport in exchange for blog & social media love. All opinions are my own.
A few weeks ago, I drove around Blue Steel, aka the Mitsubishi Outlander. Loved this vehicle, as it had the room and spacious seating of an SUV, but drove like a car. Honestly, this would be a great car for me…or a family of four. Plenty of extras too add, and the basics make this a vehicle a great choice for holiday traveling!
The Space… Wait, did I mention that already? The front seats. The back seats. The trunk! The Outlander Sport comfortably seats five, so Bobbie & Stewart will have plenty of space between them for the road trip to Grandma’s. And can we talk about this trunk — you really could have fit two more of me! Again, plenty of room for luggage, beach chairs, snowboards, whatever tickles your fancy this December.
GPS & Satellite Radio… The more I drove the Outlander, the more I noticed how much I love this feature. The GPS was accurate, and helpful during traffic to find alternate routes. And, of course, it will lead you down the most direct paths to Grandma’s for her holiday cookies. The screen itself is about six inches wide for easy viewing of your navigation and your holiday jams. Speaking of those jams, you can rock out to the radio, SiriousXM Satellite Radio; or connect you iPod or sync via Bluetooth capability.
Pit stop! Starbucks run anyone?
Mileage… This one is simple. This much space. That big of a trunk. Like an SUV — smooth & sleek like a car. 25 MPG city and 32 MPG highway. Yes, please.
Those other details… Not only will these help you get to Grandma’s right on time… All-Wheel Drive, Rear View Camera system (so helpful!), excellent Safety Ratings (four years in a row!), Woofer in the trunk area for rockin’ out, Heated Front Seats, Sporty Break & Gas Pedals, Sunroof, HD Headlights and LED Running Lights, plenty of Charging space for our USB toys.
And…I think that about covers it. Driving the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport was a treat, even if I wasn’t headed to Grandma’s…
