2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE: Back from Berlin
July 18, 2011
Our 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport pulled airport duty while I spent two days in Berlin. It sat patiently on the rooftop level at Wally Park, a name that for some reason makes a certain Canadian friend of mine crack up every time I say it.
One large international bag from Costco and one backpack equals one last thing to do before I climb in and drive home.
With the seats up, the big checked bag simply won't fit lengthwise. But it slips in just fine sideways, with room for another just like it if I had one.
We have actual test luggage at our static test lab, consisting of large international checked bags like this one as well as the ever popular carry-on roller bags, the ones that just barely fit into the overhead compartment.
Our loading standard for measurement prohibits stacking anything higher than the rear seatbacks or otherwise impeding rear visibility. To that end our Outlander Sport will also carry one large and two carry-ons or, if we leave the large checked bags at home, five carry-on bags.
