Getting around with a family of 5 can be a little cramped if you don’t have the right vehicle. With the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander SE you can fit up to 7 people with the third row seating. There is plenty of storage as you can put the third row seating down and packed the family up for a day at the beach or if you are picking up some things at the store. Sit comfortably with all leather seats and on a cold day warm up with heated seats in the front.
Listen to your favorite tunes from a Rockford Fosgate stereo system that has 9 speakers and a 10 inch subwoofer that makes any music sound amazing. It is also equipped with Sirius XM satellite radio so you can find any music to your liking.
If you have a short driveway like me, you may find the backup camera helpful to see when you pull out in reverse.
The gas mileage is amazing as I drove it around all week and only used a half of tank of gas compared to my mini van I have to fill it up weekly and I usually only drive it around town. You can put it in ECO mode where it controls your speed and limits using so much gas. The estimated annual fuel costs for the Outlander SE is $2,000. In over 5 years you will save an estimated $1,000 on fuel costs since it gets 26 MPG.
I was super excited about the sunroof as I have never had a car with a sunroof so that was a real treat for me. I had that baby opened every time I drove it and enjoyed ever minute of the beautiful sunshine and breeze coming in. All it took was a push of a button to open, tilt, and close it.
And get this, you don’t need a key to start it. All you need is the small remote with you and push a button to start it. My husband always says that I have too many keys on my key chain and it wears down the ignition. Now I don’t have to worry about that with the Mitsubishi Outlander.
This is a great car for large families to get around in or if you are a car pool mom. The car is so quiet and has a smooth drive that it makes the ride more relaxing.
The starting price is $26,195 for the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander SE and includes many options. It is competitively priced against other compact SUVs and was named to the “10 most affordable 3-row vehicles” list by Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com.
