Mitsubishi Motors has had its ups and downs and recently they partnered up with Nissan. However, the two companies have clearly stated they’re still in competition with one another, so it’s clear that Mitsubishi is going to stay strong.  Currently, Mitsubishi is celebrating their 100-year anniversary and their strongest vehicle is the official face of Mitsubishi – the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Yep, it’s been 100 years. The first Mitsubishi Model-A was put into mass-production in Japan in 1917. When the company launched the Outlander in 2001, Mitsubishi didn’t just want the Outlander to blend in with their other models, so they made it the face of Mitsubishi  Motors. If you go to mitsubishicars.com, the first slide you’ll see is the announcement of their anniversary with the Model-A and the Outlander side-by-side. Not only that, but with the recent shut down of the Lancer, Mitsubishi has decided to focus on its SUVs and crossovers, like the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander and 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

So aside from being the new face of Mitsubishi, what are some other things the Outlander has going for it? How about its ability to live up to its name “Sports Utility Vehicle”? One would think it has a lot of cargo space, right?

Safety features continue to become more advanced in today’s average automobile. There was once a time where everything was manual. Today, we have smart technology, and not just in our phones. We have things like adaptive cruise control, autonomous braking, and even autonomous vehicles. You can find technology like this in the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander, an IIHS Top Safety Pick + recipient.

For the fourth year in a row, the Mitsubishi Outlander received a TOP SAFETY PICK+ (TPS+) from the Insurance Institute for High Safety (IIHS). The IIHS is a trusted organization for rating vehicle safety by putting it through several impact-crash simulations. Before it hits the streets, a car is smashed up and tested for safety in head-on collisions, side-impact, roof strength, head restraints, and crash avoidance and mitigation. To get a TPS+, a vehicle must get high ratings across the scorecard.

2017 Mitsubishi ModelsWhether you like crossovers, sedans, fuel efficient cars, or even electric vehicles, Mitsubishi has upgraded their models for the 2017 model year. So let’s take a quick look at some of the highlights for each Mitsubishi model.

2017 Mitsubishi Lancer

The Mitsubishi Lancer is a classic. Many of the Lancer trims are available with AWC or “all-wheel control” for better handling when on the road. The base trim is powered by a 2.0-liter MIVEC engine, granting it 148 horsepower. MIVEC is Mitsubishi’s patented VVT system, a design implemented for performance and fuel economy. The EPA for the Lancer is 27/34 mpg city/highway, so the proof is in the pudding.

Some of the other standard features are 16-inch two-tone alloy wheels, the popular FUSE Hands-Free link system, and a 6.1-inch touchscreen with rearview camera. You’re not going to see many base trim vehicles with a touchscreen and a camera. On the higher end trims, luxury features like leather trim, heated front seats, and premium audio systems are at your fingertips.

The starting MSRP is $17,795 and is backed by the best coverage from Mitsubishi, nearly doubling every other auto brand warranty on the market today.
