2016 MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER
The Mitsubishi Outlander ES, which is the Outlander’s base model, offers 166 horsepower from a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and has a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and is capable of towing up to 1,500 lbs. The car has a 16.6 gallon fuel tank and a fuel efficiency of 25 city and 31 highway. The 2016 Outlander ES starts out at $22,995.
The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander has been upgraded in numerous ways from the 2015 model. One of the major changes to the vehicle’s exterior can be seen in the new and improved looking front-end. The CUV’s front grille now has striking chrome accents. An improved wheel design and 18-inch two-toned alloy wheels and LED tail lights are also great exterior features that come standard. For those living in colder climates, the vehicle’s heated side-view mirrors are a great safety feature.
The 2016 Outlander’s interior comes with a new steering wheel, contrasting stitching and an improved look for the trim panels. The armrests and headliner are now made with better quality and more comfortable materials. The car’s second row seats are easier to fold and stow and the rear headrests have an automatic folding capability. While noise has been a problem in the past; the 2016 edition has been addressed issue and has made 31 improvements designed to reduce cabin and door closing noise.
While the redesign is a major element of the 2016 Outlander, safety has not been compromised or overlooked. There are seven airbags in the car including the driver’s knee airbag. The car is equipped with hill start assistance so drivers have extra help getting the car safely moving when parked on an incline. One of the other car’s cool safety features is the anti-theft engine immobilizer which prevents people from stealing a car without the properly-programmed key.
Though the Outlander SE is the base-model, the car is equipped with several convenience features. The entertainment features of the car include FUSE Hands-free Link System with a USB and iPod port. So owners and passengers can charge their devices, there are two 12-volt accessory outlets. And most-importantly, there is storage space throughout the car, allowing for space and room for all seven-passengers.
The car’s handling has been improved by the car’s stiffened structure and redesigned suspension. Additionally, the steering wheel and brake pedal communicate what is happening on the road more effectively than before.
