Mitsubishi Outlander GT: Not a Mom-Mobile
January 11, 2011
The automotive industry showed signs of slow recovery in 2010. Sales for the year came in at about 11.5 million units, up 11 percent from 10.4 million units in 2009. Mitsubishi participated in this recovery, with a 2010 sales increase of 4 percent.
Mitsubishi reports that the Outlander was a primary driver in the company's sales growth and I can understand why the model is doing so well for the brand. Not everyone wants their next crossover to look and handle like a mom-mobile and the Outlander does a pretty good job of meeting the needs of this type of buyer. Solid handling, assertive looks and an attractive cabin make it a winner in my book.
