2011 Mitsubishi Outlander SE 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl CVT)
My girlfriend recently traded in her 2009 Lancer GT for a 2011 Outlander 4cyl AWD. Her Lancer was such a great car and Mitsubishi service is always fantastic. We recently moved into an area where we need a 4x4 so after looking at offerings from Hyundai, Nissan, Jeep, etc. we easily decided on the Outlander!
We chose the 4cyl because we did the not need the power or fuel consumption of the V6. So far we are averaging reviewed specs of 23mpg city and 28mpg highway which is great for a vehicle this size!
Please be aware that the 4cyl is for fuel savings and V6 is for power and towing. Choose wisely as some people seem disappointed by the lack of 4cyl power (168hp). Know what you are buying!
Whisper quite while cruising on the highway
TONS of space in both front and middle row (no rear seating here)
Mini-tailgate for easy loading and unloading
Great fuel economy for a vehicle this size
More 4cyl power than much of the competition
Reclining middle row seats
This whole vehicle is great!
Cheap plastic interior. The little bit of dash "leather wrapping" found on the premium model should be standard on all trims regardless of leather seats.
