The new Outlander is winning awards left and right, including being named a KBB Best Buy finalist. Thanks to over 100 improvements on the 2016 model, this car was named one of the best cars to buy for the price.
According to Mitsubishi, the KBB award measures overall vehicle quality and value based on expert evaluation and standard metrics. This includes pricing, mechanical data, 5-year cost-to-own info, maintenance, financing, fuel, and fees among other things.
“With more than 300 new-car models eligible for the 2016 Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com Best Buy Awards, we are proud to see the Outlander included among the top 49 Finalists as it speaks volumes to where the Outlander stands in the eyes of a vehicle valuation and information source trusted by the industry and consumers alike,” said Don Swearingen, executive vice president of Mitsubishi Motors North America.
Models are divided into 12 categories. The Outlander was ranked in the Midsize SUV segment. Currently, there is no winner, but the overall Best Buy Award will be given sometime later this month. Our fingers are crossed that the Outlander wins.
