2009 Mitsubishi Outlander Review
MPGomatic.com puts a 2009 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS to a week-long
test-drive. [Full Review:
http://www.mpgomatic.com/2009/03/06/mitsubishi-outlander-review/ ] The
fun-to-drive Outlander is a SUV of a sporty sort, with paddle shifters, a
willing V6, and plenty of cargo space ... but can it deliver the MPGs?
2011 Mitsubishi ASX / RVR / Outlander Sport EuroNCAP Crash Tests (Frontal, Side, & Pole Impacts)
The passenger compartment of the ASX remained stable in the frontal impact
with only slight rearward deformation of the windscreen pillar. Dummy
readings showed good protection of the knees and femurs of both front seat
occupants. Mitsubishi showed that occupants of different sizes and those
sat in different positions would be similarly well protected. Protection of
the driver's feet and ankles was rated as marginal. Maximum points were
scored in the side barrier impact, with good protection of all body areas.
However, in the more severe side pole test, protection of the chest area
was weak. Protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end
collision was rated as marginal.
In the frontal impact, the head of the 3 year dummy, sat in a
forward-facing restraint, was well controlled. In the side barrier test,
both the 3 year and the 18month dummies were properly contained by the
protective shells of their restraints. The front passenger airbag can be
disabled to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that
seating position. However, information provided to the driver regarding the
status of the airbag is not clear. The dangers of using a rearward facing
restraint in that seating position without first disabling the airbag are
clearly explained in a permanently attached label.

Outlander @EverymanDriver @IMDaveErickson
For the 2015 Outlander, Mitsubishi's "Fuse" voice command system and
Bluetooth are now standard. There are also small styling updates to the
front fascia, along with minor changes to standard and optional equipment.
Lately, crossover SUVs have become the renaissance men of the car world,
providing a good measure of capability in all categories. They're great for
family vacations, carpools and transporting the kids while also being more
comfortable and fuel-efficient than traditional truck-based SUVs. The
Mitsubishi Outlander is no newcomer to this segment, and the 2015 model
benefits from a redesign that occurred just last year. The problem with
this Mitsubishi, however, is that it doesn't excite or excel in any
To its credit, the 2015 Outlander with its base four-cylinder engine gets
above-average gas mileage for the segment, and when we tested the V6
all-wheel-drive GT model, we found it to have decent acceleration and a
somewhat comfortable cabin. Other selling points for the Outlander are its
lengthy warranty and available third-row seat. That third row is pretty
cramped, but if this is a feature you want, the Outlander is one of the few
vehicles in its class to offer it.
Evaluated elsewhere, though, the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander is pretty
average. In an Exhaustive Edmunds.com
test, we gave the Outlander a "C" rating. Competitors typically offer
quicker acceleration, higher levels of comfort on long road trips and
better build quality. The Honda CR-V, for instance, is more refined and
comfortable. We also recommend checking out the 2015 Mazda CX-5, 2015 Ford
Escape and Toyota RAV4, all of which are great choices. The Nissan Rogue is
another worthy contender, as it has an available third row of seating. With
so many options for crossover SUVs, we definitely recommend that you check
out the competition before settling on a 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander.
Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options
The 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander is a seven-passenger crossover SUV that comes
in three different trim levels: the base ES, midrange SE and GT.
The ES comes standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, 16-inch steel
wheels, heated mirrors, rear privacy glass, full power accessories,
automatic climate control, a 60/40-split-folding second-row seat that
slides and reclines, a 50/50-split third-row seat, Mitsubishi's "Fuse"
voice command system (for phone and audio control), Bluetooth phone and
audio connectivity, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, tilt-and-telescoping
steering column, cruise control and a six-speaker sound system with a CD
player and an iPod/USB interface.
Stepping up to the SE gets you 18-inch alloy wheels, foglights, keyless
ignition and entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front
seats, leatherette (premium vinyl) upholstery, a rearview camera and an
upgraded audio system with a 6-inch touchscreen display and HD radio. The
GT further adds the 3.0-liter V6, all-wheel drive and a few more luxuries
such as automatic xenon headlights, LED taillights, shifter paddles, wood
interior panels, rain-sensing wipers and satellite radio.
The SE and GT models can be had with a Premium option package that includes
a sunroof, roof rails, a power liftgate, leather upholstery, a power driver
seat and a nine-speaker Rockford Fosgate surround-sound audio system with
satellite radio. A Touring package available for the SE and GT trims
