2016 Mitsubishi Outlander 3.0 GT S-AWC Review

I was loaned the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander 3.0 GT S-AWC for 7 days to do a review, all opinions are my own.


Hey yall!   How has the weather been in your neck of the woods?  Atlanta’s weather still has not been good, once the season changed to autumn the weather brought along rain that never seemed to want to stop and move away.  The family and I wanted to get the season started right with visiting pumpkin patches, county fairs, running around and getting lost in corn mazes, all that fun stuff that happens during the fall months, but it seems Mother Nature had another plan for us; keeping us indoors!  But hey, we're not going to let Mother Nature ruin our time and make us catch cabin fever!

My family and I have been riding around and keeping dry in the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander GT S-AWC.  This is my first time reviewing a Mitsubishi vehicle so I didn’t know what to expect beforehand; however, I had a friend back in high school that was driving in the Mitsubishi Lancer sports car and I rode with her in it once and it seemed like a okay car during that time, but I really wasn’t paying the car much attention because during those years I could care less about cars as long as I’m not riding the bus!  LOL!

First impression when the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander was delivered to me was it looked like one of the small Volkswagens SUV’s (Touareg) I’ve been seeing driving on the roads today and also looked like the Subaru Forester mixed together.  The grille in front of the Outlander gives the car a cool, strong, and sporty look that gives the car such personality.  As for the whole body style, I wasn’t quite into it because the style was kind of awkward viewing it sideways, maybe it's due to the small tires; but I will say I love the Labrador Black Pearl color along with the chrome trimmings.  I really like cars that have chrome trimmings on the exterior and interior of their cars, it really brings out the cars style and makes it look more attractive.  The reason why the Outlander has a smaller look than the big SUVs is because it’s a crossover vehicle, meaning it is crossover between a SUV and car.  You can take the Outlander on an off road adventure, or drive it through the powdery snow.

The interior seating is a crème color that is comfortable the whole time while driving to your destination.  There is black flooring, black colored dashboard and door panels that create a great mix of both colors.

By looking on the outside of the car you would’ve never known that this Outlander has third row seating but I wouldn’t recommend adults seating in the far back because it’s pretty cramped back there.  If I had more than 4 people riding along with me I would have my girls sit in the far back and the adults in the middle seats because there is enough room for my girls’ little legs in the third row seats.

What is one of the most important about a vehicle to me is the space and storage.  Is there enough leg room?  Is there enough storage for my travel belongings?  So….did the Outlander pass the test about space and storage?  Sort of.   The storage in the back had plenty of space for my groceries, travel bags, and suitcases as long as I had the third row seats collapsed.  When the third row seats is in the up position there is barely any storage room left but there is a small storage bin I can use.  As for space, there is good amount of leg room in the front and middle seats.

Let’s talk about the radio/navigation area of the car.  I wasn’t too keen on the looks of the display screen; the graphics seems a bit generic.   However, I do like that in the menu options it offers real time traffic reports, real time weather, and point of interest (nearest gas stations, grocery stores, food establishments, etc.).  What’s also really neat is that you can watch movies in this car but only when the car is parked for safety reasons. 



Still listening to CDs?  There is a CD player in this car too.  As for a lot of newer model cars, this car also has satellite radio; this is how I prefer to listen to music because it’s commercial free and has hundreds of channels to choose from depending on what satellite package you have.   The sound system in the Outlander is really good; I’m very impressed with the sound quality and this is because the sound system is a Rockford Fosgate which is a top of the line brand.

Here is a list of more things I enjoy about the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander:



1. The LED headlights are bright and it helped me be able to see through all the rain.  Also, I’m able to move the headlights up and down to avoid shining the bright lights on the vehicle in front of me.


2. Middle seats leans back if your passengers don’t want to sit upright.


3. Push button start, remote keys, and truck door opens with a push of a button on the door as long as you have the remote keys on you.


4. Heated seating in the front two seats to keep you warm during the cold days and nights.


5. With all the rain Atlanta has been having lately the rain-sensing wind shield wipers are a great feature to have.


6. ECO Mode switch helped me save on fuel.  More money in my pockets means more driving on the road!  There are other options to drive in all-wheel drive, in snow, or in normal mode.


7. Rearview backup camera displays a great clear picture of what’s behind you to help you see when you’re backing up the car.

8. When it rains with humid weather the windows starts to fog up and that makes it hard to see, so it’s good that the Outlander has heated side mirrors and defrosters.


9. Second row seating has hidden storage bins under the seats.


10. There is a couple of 12-Volt outlets and USB port to keep my phone charged.



I would say that the pros outweigh the cons with this car.  With a little tweaking here and there, this car would be perfect- well for me anyways.  The Outlander is great for small families, singles, teens, off road drivers, and people up north who get a lot of snow.  



So, wondering what is the total MSRP for this vehicle?  This fully loaded vehicle price is $35,195.00 which is affordable but if you feel that is a little too much for your wallet and don’t want all the features, the starting price is $23,845.  First time buyers will score big getting this Outlander!

 


As I was saying, Atlanta has been experiencing a lot of rain so I couldn’t do a whole lot in this car, however, the girls and I did have a girls day outing last Saturday, check out what we did!

The girls and I had a bite to eat at Burger 21.  The burgers there is okay, I pretty much prefer Five Guys or In N Out if I’m ever on the West Coast.

After we finished our meals we headed to Party City so the girls can pick out their costumes.  Seems like the theme this year is witches because that’s what the girls picked out to be.  The girls will put these costumes to good use because they’ll wear it several times before and during Halloween.

Next door to Party City is TJ Maxx/Home Goods store (both stores are combined together); the girls and I went in there so I could get some kitchen supplies I needed for a post I was currently working on at the time.



I really wish the weather was acting right so we could’ve stuck to our original plan which was go to The Rock Ranch and Buford Corn Maze, but oh well, there is always next time.
