Thanks to the team at DriveShop for providing me the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport complimentary to test for a week. All opinions expressed here are my own.
Summer Road Trip in the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know that my family has been super busy with summer travel. We’ve road tripped through quite a few states and a few weeks ago I was able to test the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. On this particular trip I drove from Georgia to Charleston, SC. Of course Charleston is one of my favorite places to visit, my family and I have already been there a few times this year. It’s such a beautiful city, with a lot of history specific to the shaping of America and African American history. There are rows of historic homes and buildings, and you can get to the beach in less than 30 minutes from downtown.
The 2016 Outlander Sport starts at a really affordable price point. Coming in around $20K, and it seats 5 comfortably. It’s a great crossover option for families like mine who need space, but aren’t interested in going the third row route. One of the downsides is that this particular model wasn’t equipped with a navigation system, but it’s always easy to just use your phone for directions and you can still pair the two together with bluetooth technology.
The back seat of the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is really roomy, but the kids weren’t in two with my husband and I this time! It has a cool panoramic glass roof. It’s not a sunroof, so it doesn’t open but it gives you a great view of the sky and lots of light inside the car.
There is tons of cargo space in the back for carrying everything you need from groceries, luggage, to sports equipment. If you need more space, of course you can fold the back seats down to tow more.
The 2016 Outlander Sport has a lot of other great features:
Leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob
Steering wheel audio controls
Push button start
18 inch two tone alloy wheels
Heated Side View Mirrors
Rear LED Combination Tail Lights
Color LCD multi-information display
Rain Sensing Wind Shield Wipers
The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport was a lot of fun to drive to South Carolina! It get about 31 mpg on the highway, and has a useful ECO mode to assist you in saving fuel. It handled the highway well on our trip and is equipped with six standard airbags, and an airbag under the drivers side dashboard.
