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?
It isn’t very easy to stand out in the SUV market today with so many choices. To get the market’s attention, a car really needs to shine, not only with style but value too. That’s why we’re comparing the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander and the 2017 Kia Sorento. Both SUVs are family-oriented cars and have a lot more to offer. They both can sit from 5-7 passengers at a time, are built strong, and affordable.
To make this a fair comparison, we’re taking a look at the best of the best for both models. That’s the GT S-AWC for the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander, and the SX Limited V6 for the 2017 Kia Sorento.
