It seems fairly obvious that if you build a vehicle with the right looks, the right equipment and the right price, success is sure to follow. That’s the case with the Mitsubishi Outlander, a phenomenal crossover SUV with an impressive list of standard and available equipment unmatched by anything in its class. Sharing its platform with the Lancer sedan (and the hot-performing Evo sport variant) the sporty Outlander sets new standards in refinement and performance. Combined with available features that include a hard drive-based navigation system, rear-seat DVD entertainment system, 650-watt audio system, Bluetooth hands-free phone interface and keyless entry and start, it wouldn’t have been surprising if Mitsubishi had also given its compact crossover a new name. Like the latest Toyota RAV4 and Hyundai Santa Fe, the Outlander also offers a small, “just in case” third-row seat.
Arguably the most tech-savvy vehicle in the category, the 2009 Mitsubishi Outlander is further distinguished by a combination of energetic driving dynamics and an available third-row seat.
