I love to drive. I bet you knew that already. My friends think I am nuts that I would rather take a 5-hour road trip rather spend a day out shopping. Behind the wheel, I feel free. I can go anywhere my heart desires and can experience a different side of life just by driving a few miles down the road. Changing your perspective can be as easy as changing your scenery. I did just that while reviewing the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.
I flew into Chicago, and the wonderful people at Mitsubishi had the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport waiting for me. I knew I would be traveling on icy roads throughout Indiana and was relieved to see that the Outlander had all-wheel drive. The tires grip the road and can handle snow and ice with ease, thankfully!
I’ve not really driven a lot of SUVs before and wondered how the Outlander would handle the roads. The Outlander Sport is not overly large, but had a ton of room for my luggage and could seat 5 people easily.
It took a minute for me to figure out the whole headlight situation though. They have a few settings that you can choose from on where the beam hits the road. For the longest time, I couldn’t figure out if my lights were on or not! After that small issue, it was smooth sailing to Indiana! I also really liked the rearview camera feature that showed what was behind me as I was backing up and would alert me if I was close to anything. Safety first, my friends!
Oh heated seats how I love you! It took the Outlander about 5 minutes to warm up from being completely frosted over. Not bad, considering in Alaska it takes my car at least 10-15 minutes before it is drive ready!
I thought it was appropriate to listen to John Mellancamp since we are from the same small town. 🙂 Oh, and the Outlander Sport’s audio system is pretty powerful and has great sound. Check out that subwoofer in my trunk pic! The 140-watt audio system in the Outlander Sport features SiriusXM and HD Radio.
I’m a sucker for opening up the sunroof and letting the cool winter air flow through the car. I also like to sit back when the seat warmers on and watch the stars light up the sky.
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport doesn’t let you leave without telling you goodbye. I really enjoyed having this SUV and would recommend it to anyone wanting to do road trips. It was easy to handle, accelerated quickly, and stopped on a dime. I had a lot of fun driving it on my backroads throughout Indiana.
