2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport: Good Road Trip Ride
October 17, 2011
Since last Wednesday I've driven our long-term 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport nearly 1000 miles, including a a 650 mile all-California road trip from Santa Monica to Monterey and back.
I'm still a fan of this little crossover. It was quiet enough out on the highway, its seats were comfortable, its sat nav, sat radio and air conditioning kept my dad and I happy, and it had plenty of range. It was also very easy to park.
The only disappointment was the Mitsu's fuel economy. On the way up we averaged 25 mpg. On the way home I pushed a bit harder and we averaged just 22.7. EPA rates the Outlander Sport at 29 mpg hwy.
Then again, nobody ever accussed me of being a hypermiler.
