You guys must know by now that I am a total sucker for stylish vehicles that won’t break the bank and can fit the whole clan. After all, they’re not so easy to come by. Trying to shuttle around 3 very active teenagers along with attending events all over town; things can get pretty hectic. Sometimes you just need a ride that’s up to the task of an on-the-go lifestyle. Enter the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander 3.0 GT.
So when I was first introduced to this cute Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV), I had to pick my jaw up from off the floor. The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander has been completely redesigned with a focus on style, comfort, and capability — there were over 100 improvements made to this vehicle! Not only is the design sleek, but it starts at just $22,955, gets 31 miles to the gallon on the highway (25 city, which is still amazing), and it can seat seven! Wait, you mean I can squeeze two extra bodies including my own squad of five? Say no more!!! Needless to say, I didn’t waste any time getting to test drive these wheels to see the improvements for myself.
One of my absolute favorite features of the Outlander GT was the touch screen navigation system. It made me feel totally pampered because it came with updates straight from The Weather Channel! Talk about convenience! I didn’t need to ask hubby whether or not I’d need an umbrella for the day because the Outlander 3.0 GT already had me covered. Literally! The nav system also impressed me with the closest fuel-ups right at my finger tips — no more fumbling around trying to ask Siri where I can get gas.
Of course, there are plenty of other swoon-worthy features like a 710-watt Rockford Fosgate® premium sound system complete with 9 speakers and a subwoofer. Car tunes are key to a great ride in my opinion. There’s nothing like cruising to classic 80’s tunes, and the SiriusXM® Satellite Radio was the perfect passenger to bring on the party. The Outlander GT also has comfy, heated, leather seats that’ll keep you warm on cold days, tons of cargo space with power liftgate for easy access, a glass sunroof to let a
little lotta sun shine in, Super All-Wheel Control that can handle quick maneuvers on the road, and ECO-mode which helps you drive in a more environmentally-friendly fashion, something that will never go out of style!
I have to say, I’m a big fan of the fabulous redesign. The new 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander 3.0 GT drove very smoothly, and for the price, and it’s hard to be believe all those wonderful assets were part of the package. The style, comfort, and overall accommodations made it perfect for a diva on-the-go who sometimes has the kids (and hubby) in tow. 😉 They definitely had to pry this one out of my hands when my test-drive time was up!
