RoadTrippin: Hitting the Road in the 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
Disclosure: I was loaned this vehicle in exchange for my social influence and honest review. The opinions in this review belong to me and are not indicative of the companies or brands mentioned.
While trekking Atlantic City, New Jersey for the Memorial Day weekend, I was loaned the 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport to enjoy and review. I hadn’t had many experiences with Mitsubishi, so I was anxious to get acquainted with the brand and their family friendly four door vehicle with four wheel drive.
When it comes to navigating through hilly terrains and difficult weather while looking sleek and sporty, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport nails it. It drives like a heavy duty truck, but gives you a ride that seats for comfortably. It is also small enough to be good on gas and fit into tights spots—but big enough to get through less than pleasant weather.
During our road trip to Atlantic City, it rained most of the way, shifting from light rain to a heavy torrential downpour. I always felt in control of the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and while we did hit some hilly areas, I was able to get through without a problem.
I most enjoyed the size of the vehicle—perfect for a small family. I can see this car being used on trips, long or short, or just while running day-to-day errands and such. It boasts a pretty nice sized trunk area for light to moderate luggage.
The car I was given didn’t have a navigational system included, although I believe you can purchase one as an upgrade. It also has an awesome Rockford Fosgate stereo system and speakers which makes it an awesome vehicle to listen to sounds in.
Here are other features of the 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport:
- Rear-View Camera System
- 7 Airbag Safety System
- Sirius-XM radio
- Heated side-view mirrors
- Auto-off halogen lights
- Four-wheel or All-wheel drive
Next, I will be reviewing the 2015 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring AWD. Stay tuned!
Special thanks to Rod and Josh at STI for the loan!
