2014 Mitsubishi Outlander review

The revamped 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander absolutely qualifies as an underdog in the tiny crossover SUV sector. In spite of the considerable improvements it has actually gotten this year, the Outlander will most likely never be the obvious option in a class that’s loaded with professional prospects.

Mitsubishi’s compact crossover is a solid access, however it’s hard to rely on a lesser-known nameplate when there’s money on the line.

The 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander is a seven-passenger crossover SUV that’s available in 3 trim levels: the base ES, midrange SE and high-grade GT.

The ES comes specification with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, 16-inch steel tires, foglights, hot mirrors, back personal privacy glass, carte blanche devices, automated climate manage, a 60/40 split-folding second-row seat that moves and reclines, a 50/50-split third-row seat, a tilt-and-telescoping wheel, cruise manage and a six-speaker stereo with a CD gamer.

Stepping up to the SE gets you 18-inch alloy wheels, keyless ignition/entry, dual-zone automated environment control, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped wheel, Bluetooth phone and audio connection, a rearview electronic camera, Mitsubishi’s “Fuse” voice command device (for phone and audio control), and an upgraded audio system with a 6-inch touchscreen screen, HD radio and an iPod/USB interface. The GT additional adds the 3.0-liter V6, four-wheel drive and a couple of more luxuries such as automatic xenon fronts lights, rain-sensing wipers and satellite radio.

The SE and GT models can be had with a Premium choice package that features a sunroof, a power liftgate, leather furniture, a power driver seat and a nine-speaker Rockford Fosgate surround-sound audio system with satellite radio. A Touring plan offered for the SE and GT cuts bundles all the above with rain-sensing wipers, a voice-operated navigation device, a larger 7-inch touchscreen display, and adaptive trip control with a collision-warning/mitigation system and lane-departure warning.

Stand-alone alternatives for the Outlander consist of rear car parking sensing units, remote start, an Exterior package deal (rear looter and restyled front and rear lesser fascias) and a rear-seat enjoyment device.
