Chrome side sills. They're a bit odd for a vehicle that's supposed to be rugged. I mean, what do you think is going to happen if something rubs up against those big strips of shininess?
Probably nothing good. Then again, the Outlander isn't really anything more than a tall wagon with part-time all-wheel drive. It's no more rugged than the Honda Crosstour and its faux rocker panels.
In that case, might as well dress up those sills with a little of the shiny stuff, not like they need to deflect rocks or anything. Thankfully, Mitsubishi chose to leave the wheels alone.
