Introducing the New 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

If you’ve been on the hunt for something capable, stylish, smart, and affordable, we have good news. The new 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has received a number of updates this year. As the smaller, compact version of the Mitsubishi Outlander, the Outlander Sport offers a lot of bang for the buck.

The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is powered by one of two smart engines. The standard 2.0-liter option delivers 148 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque, while a 168-horsepower 2.4-liter engine is also available. The Outlander Sport is an efficient option, boasting 24 mpg city and 30 mpg highway*, and with the available all-wheel drive it’s ready to pave the way off-road.

With new standard features, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is better equipped than ever to keep passengers connected and safe on the road. A 7-inch touchscreen audio display is now standard in every trim, and features a rear-view camera. The second trim, the Outlander Sport SE 2.4, now comes with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ plus two USB ports. The highest trim, the Outlander Sport SEL 2.4, adds leather seating surfaces and available safety features like Forward Collision Mitigation and Lane Departure Warning.

No matter which trim you choose, we’re sure that you’ll be impressed by the many amenities and the friendly price tag. Learn more about what’s new in the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport by stopping by Pantilli Mitsubishi.

2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Named to Most Affordable Vehicle List

Mitsubishi has been making strides with all of its new vehicles, and the Outlander is no exception. So far, it’s been recognized for over 100 improvements from its 2015 predecessor. And how else it’s being recognized? Its affordability! The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander made it onto the list of the 10 Most Affordable Three-Row Vehicles of 2016.

Kelley Blue Book compiles this list annually of the most affordable three-row vehicles. To qualify, a vehicle must have seating for up to seven or eight passengers. All cars on the list range from $23,000 to $30,000, an incredibly affordable price range for a large vehicle.

But Mitsubishi isn’t just about a low price tag. The 2016 Outlander offers affordability and quality.

“We set a new value standard for the brand when we launched the 2016 Outlander last year, and to see it is recognized by such an informative and trusted source in the automotive industry confirms that Mitsubishi is making a name for itself in the SUV/CUV segment,” said Don Swearingen, Chief Operating Officer of MMNA.

With the Outlander, you’ll get incredibly fuel economy, horsepower, and Mitsubishi’s outstanding warranty. Check it out today at Pantili Mitsubishi!

New 2016 Outlander Named KBB Best Buy Finalist

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.

2016 Outlander Tops Most Affordable Three-Row Crossovers By Cars.com

three-row crossovers

Crossovers are among the fastest growing vehicles in America, in terms of popularity. Three-row crossovers are at the bigger end of the crossover spectrum and are typically for people who prefer a more stylish, less bulky vehicle over a minivan.

Every year, Cars.com puts together a list of the Most Affordable Three-Row Crossovers, an important study in light of the crossover’s popularity. It’s a great study because Cars.com doesn’t just look at the purchase price; the website also takes into account “five years of fuel costs and residual values of the cars after five years provided by ALG to determine which crossover will cost the least in the long run.”

After the smoke cleared, the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander had claimed the top spot in the list of Most Affordable Three-Row Crossover by Cars.com. The Outlander possessed all of the features that Cars.com deemed “essential to car shoppers today,” like an automatic transmission, a power driver’s seat, a rearview camera, a USB port, and Bluetooth connectivity.

Mitsubishi Outlander Is One of the Most Affordable 3-Row Vehicles

Larger vehicles are almost always more expensive than their smaller counterparts. But you don’t have to spend a fortune to get the size of vehicle you need. Kelley Blue Book has named the Mitsubishi Outlander to its list of the 10 Most Affordable 3-Row Vehicles.

“The 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander is an outstanding value proposition and comes with a long list of standard safety features and amenities,” states Don Swearingen, Executive Vice President, MMNA, in a statement. “And for 2016, the Outlander will feature bold new styling and over 100 key engineering and interior refinements, adding even more value to an already feature-laden vehicle.”

KBB.com described the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander as “loaded with value.” The editors were impressed with its standard three rows of seats, micron air filtration, hill-start assist, traction and stability control, seven air bags, and Mitsubishi’s impressive 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.

In addition to these great value-oriented standard features, the Outlander is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ with the available Forward Collision Mitigation system. Other safety features include anti-lock brakes and Electronic Brake-force Distribution. The Outlander is even built with Mitsubishi’s Impact Safety Evolution chassis.

Restyled 2016 Outlander Awaits in New York

Mitsubishi is inviting everyone to “come see the new face of Mitsubishi Motors” at the 2015 New York International Auto Show, where it will be revealing what can only be the restyled 2016 Outlander SUV.

That assumption can be made from the poster that came with the announcement, which depicts a fairly recognizable front end. But as we know from previous spy shots, Mitsubishi has gone to work on both the front fascia and much of the rear end of the most popular vehicle in its lineup.

There’s also good reason to think the restyling will coincide with the American debut of the Outlander’s plug-in hybrid version, which has us expecting a design more or less along the lines of the Outlander PHEV Concept-S previously unveiled at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.

In any case, we can’t wait to have the new 2016 Outlander at Pantili Mitsubishi. Stay tuned for the press conference at 11:30AM ET on April 2nd for the big reveal!

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Coming to America for New York Auto Show Debut

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has been impressing people over in Europe for a while now, but we’re still waiting to get our first look at it here in the States. Soon, we’ll get that chance, though—the Outlander PHEV has been confirmed for a debut at the New York Auto Show. PHEV stands for “plug-in hybrid vehicle;” the new vehicle will come to the market as a 2017 model.

In fact, according to Automotive News, the new PHEV will hit in the second quarter of 2016. A refreshed version of the gas-powered Outlander will be coming this June, before the PHEV, as well. “All of our 2016 model year vehicles will be refreshed with our new brand identity, starting with the 2016 Outlander, which will make its world premiere at the New York International Auto Show in April,” Mitsubishi Motors North America Executive Vice President Don Swearingen said.

Come see us here at Pantili Mitsubishi to learn more about both the Outlander and its PHEV counterpart today. There’s also the new GC-PHEV, a futuristic looking concept eV that might preview a future Mitsubishi Montero model. We can’t wait to talk about all these models with you, so come see us today.

2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Safety Features Win Top Safety Pick+ Award

Mitsubishi was recently awarded two Top Safety Picks by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. This prestigious award only goes to the safest vehicles on the market, those which can pass a series of crash tests and simulations. It’s no wonder the 2015 Lancer and Outlander won.

Both the Lancer and the Outlander were given the Top Safety Pick+ designation, according to Mitsubishi. The Outlander was specially recognized by the IIHS for its innovative use of new safety technologies. The best of the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander safety features are the Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM) system and advanced RISE safety engineering.

“The Mitsubishi RISE safety body construction system is the perfect example of this kind of technology. In the event of an accident, energy is absorbed and deflected away from the occupant cell, which enhances passenger protection,” said Don Swearingen, Executive Vice President of MMNA.
