2008 Mitsubishi Outlander LS 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
I bought this vehicle for use instead of my useless Ford F 150. I was a bit nervous about my first backroad/offroad trip but the Outlander handled great. It is almost as high of the ground as a truck so you can go through potholes and deep puddles. Highway mileage is good, city mileage is decent. It is definitely good value for money.
Versatility, car-like handling, sporty.
More options, like you have in Japan. Fridge in one of the "3" glove compartments etc. Engine tuned for more fuel efficiency.
