2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE: Back-Up Guidelines

April 12, 2011

Our long-term 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE not only has a nice back-up camera display, it also has trajectory and proximity guidelines like many new cars equipped with back-up cameras. I love these lines, as long as they aren't overdone.

It's so easy to back up into a space. Parallel parking is a breeze. And parking at night is so much easier. With many cars it's difficult to determine your range to that next vehicle, but that red proximity line is quite helpful.

Of course, you should not use the camera display exclusively, instead only glancing at it intially and periodically during your backing maneuver.

Yeah, I know that some of you think you can back up fine at 50 mph, while blindfolded and inverted.

But back-up cameras with guidelines are helpful to all decent drivers. Like you and me.
