2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport: I Wonder
April 26, 2011
So I took our Outlander Sport (the Sport is the little Outlander) off onto a gravel path the other day and I wondered, "Is this the extent of the little Sport's off-road prowess?"
Many of these QUV's (Questionable Utility Vehicles - that's right, you heard that here first) hint at having some off-road ability, with their high-ish ground clearance and selectable 4-wheel drive, but can they do anything. Can they really drive off-road?
Dan Edmunds (seriously, his last name is a coincidence - he's not the owner) led our Countryman into unpaved territory and it got me to thinking how our other QUV's stack up.
Since we have three of these things at our long-term disposal (Juke, Outlander Sport and Countryman), who else would like to see a silty showdown? I promise to take pictures.
