The 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander has been updated to include some features that are now standard. In a competitive segment there was no other choice. Mitsubishi rose to the consumer ‘s request. You asked for a rearview camera on a 6.1-inch touchscreen, you got it!
Another perk? AWD is now offered on the base ES model. Here’s what else the ES offers standard: 18-inch alloy wheels, LED running lights and taillights, dual zone a/c, rearview camera, voice controls, Bluetooth connectivity, a 6.1 touchscreen display and a six-speaker sound system.
The Outlander is a 7-passenger SUV but the third row seating needs to be reserved for the kids. It is hard to maneuver getting in and out of that third row.
The ES, SE, and SEL are equipped with a 2.4-liter engine with 166 hp and 162 lb-feet of torque. It won’t be the fastest car to get you to 60 mph. The Outlander takes roughly 9.1 seconds to reach 60 mph. But it does have a decent fuel economy. In the city, the Outlander obtained 25 mpg and 31 mpg on the highway, for a combined 27 mpg.
The Outlander is great for trips, providing a quiet cabin ride at a steady speed.
Safety features include: rearview camera, antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, hill start assist control, front seat side airbags, a driver knee airbag, with first and second rows including side curtain airbags. Other safety options can be added. Overall the Outlander received a five-star rating for crash protection.
The Mitsubishi Outlander ES trim has a starting price of $23,495.
