2010 Mitsubishi Outlander GT: Great Counterprogramming
April 26, 2011
If you're part of a segment known for being domesticated, the most interesting thing you can do is to roll out something that's a little wild. Relative to its rivals, the Outlander feels raw and wired on the road, like it's had a couple cups of caffeine. It's the leaner, meaner wildcat in a world of well-fed house cats and I appreciate the niche it's carved for itself each time I get behind the wheel.
It also doesn't hurt that the Mitsu is pretty easy on the eyes. White cars usually look as attractive as your laundry room's wheezing Kenmore dryer (hey, don't forget to clean the lint trap), but our Outlander actually manages to wear this color with its sex appeal intact.
Got any favorites in the midsize crossover segment?
