600 miles so far.

LE is higher level of trim with fog lights, moon roof and rear radar. Not the slowest vehicle (2.4L) i have owned but it ok for merging on highways and scooting around. I find it fun to drive and very good on gas. Smart display a good size screen incorporates several options. Us your smart phone (USB or Bluetooth ) and you pretty much have it all! Lots of room inside and seats for 5 adults & 2kids. Ride and handling ok , to few miles on odometer to comment. When you take into account the discount the price was a big factor. Mitsubishi has been around a long time , My guess you will be happy with purchase of this Outlander. My friend Bob has the sport model. Smaller but he's very happy ! July, now have 9k on vehicle. Great SUV.

I own a 2004 Mitsubishi Galant ES and I have had it now for 14 years, my son was 2 when I got it and now he will be 16 in 3 months. I was planning on getting him a used car but then decided my credit was good and I could get a brand new car and give him the Galant. I wasn’t planning on getting a car until December of this year (2018) but I went into the dealership to get an oil change on the Galant and ended up letting them run my credit and was able to get ANY CAR I WANTED WITH NO MONEY DOWN!!! Talk about going in for an oil change, a new battery for 1 of the Galant remotes and an extra key for the Galant to additionally walking out with a 2018 SUV!! I knew the car I wanted that I wanted to have: 1) leather seats 2) heated seats 3) power seats 4) Bluetooth 5) Blind spot monitor 6) Navigation 7) sunroof 8) Sirius XM radio 9) backup camera ...now out of those 9 things I got 8!! What I learned was every model has something the other doesn’t. I’m 37 years old and this is the 1st time I’m actually paying attention of what I want in a car vs. just having a car, funny thing is I was looking for another sedan and didn’t even want an SUV because I thought I’d be spending more money on gas, let alone I said I wasn’t buying another Mitsubishi. Now my Galant has not ever given me any problems but I thought I’d just get a different brand since this would be my 3rd and final car. When I was pregnant with my son I had a 1998 Mazda Protege and that was in November 2001 then I got my Galant in February 2005 and here it is February 2018 and I’m buying another Mitsubishi. I did t want a car note I was originally planning on going to an auction but figured I’d i was going to have a car note to try and have it paid off in 2 years by the time my son graduates from high school. When I looked around I saw the SEL sport model and thought it was cool cuz it had the heated seats and everything that I wanted besides the sun roof it had a moonroof. When she showed me the LE model yes it had the sunroof and multi camera view but it was manual seats and they weren’t heated so that was a no go. Then she showed me the SEL Outlander and had me park it right next to the Sport SEL model and that was it, it was 13 inches longer and had more cargo space which I needed because I shop at Costco. I was looking for a car that was no longer than 191.5 inches because I have a garage and we park both cars behind the other so in order for the garage to close I needed a car that was going to fit length wise. I looked at Honda’s, Toyota’s and Nisssans and I would’ve paid more for the Nissan Rogue with everything I would’ve wanted an additional packages, the Toyota CH-R had manual seats and the Honda HR-V didn’t have the Honda Sense safety features. I didn’t get the S-AWC nor 4WD because I don’t drive in the snow, mud or mountains, I live in Long Beach,Ca and having the V6 engine wasn’t needed for me. It was going to be more on gas and I’m just a regular driver so the 2.4L with CVT was suitable enough for me as I am a sensible driver. Then when it came to my car insurance it was CHEAPER than getting the other 3 brands I looked at and priced certain models so I am very happy with my car. To think I didn’t even have an SUV in mind and I came out with one plus got $2,500 in rebates so to come on here and see actual owner reviews made me happy because the expert revues were poor. This thing doesn’t need a V6 engine, I just put it in sport mode and I get a HUGE KICK in speed whereas the speed in the regular drive mode is good. I have an iPhone so the Apple car play is perfect for me and my son when we are in the car, I was bummed that my particular Mitsubishi dealership didn’t have the SEL model where I could’ve had the Touring package which had the Frontal collision mitigation and lane departure BUT when I was originally making my list I didn’t have those things in there for safety so the blind spot monitor with lane change assist and rear cross traffic assist are just fine, I tell you ANYTHING that I would’ve got was gonna be an UPGRADE from that 2004 Galant so I’m happy, I didn’t choose to get a sunroof in my model and I’m ok without that and the navigation really comes from my iPhone connected via USB using the Apple car play so it’s cheaper than the Nissan or Honda models which actually has Navigation in it because I’m using my cell phone so that’s ok to, I still say I have Navigation because of the Siri maps and GPS on my phone. I won’t really be using that 3rd row I just wanted it because other cars with this price range had the normal 2 rows and I know the Rogue has 3 rows but the Outlander has more cargo room overall. Besides it’s just me and my teenage son who now has his own car so now it’s just me and I’m ok with what I have, this car will last me 15 years just like my Galant, if I do get another car after this my son will be buying it for me.

Outlander is a nice vehicle but is sluggish to drive. To upgrade to a 6 cylinder brings the price up too high. There are other vehicles available for less money. Also to get the safety options you have to pay more. The base models don't have them.

More about the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander

Mildly updated after a more thorough redesign in 2016, the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander continues as a moderately priced choice for consumers looking for a small SUV with three rows of seats. And even though that third row is really only suitable for small children, the extra capacity could be a deciding factor for large families shopping on a budget. In addition, the Outlander also is available with a V6 engine, something many of its competitors lack. But even with those advantages, in some areas the Mitsubishi lags behind its competitors in the red-hot compact SUV market.

The interior is definitely the Outlander's strongest selling point. In addition to seven-passenger seating, buyers will like the quality materials, clean design, available driver-assist features and decent cargo capacity. One sticking point may be the infotainment system's user interface, which is not as easy to use as that of most of the Outlander's competitors. Optional equipment now includes auto high-beam headlights, a suite of advanced safety technology, a 360-degree camera, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality.

The standard powerplant for the ES, SE, LE and SEL trim levels is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 166 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque and comes linked to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The GT model comes with a standard 3.0-liter V6 that puts out 224 hp and 215 lb-ft of torque and comes mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The GT is equipped with standard all-wheel drive, a feature that is optional on the first four trim levels.

On the road, the Outlander handles well enough for a vehicle in its class, but most drivers will probably find engine performance to be subpar compared to the competition. Neither engine is particularly lively, and the four-cylinder version is both underpowered and noisy. As a vehicle for city commuting, the Outlander could work fine, but there are likely better choices for highway travel or serious off-road use.

Fuel economy is another area where the Outlander is a little below average for its class. The base two-wheel-drive model with the four-cylinder engine is EPA-rated at 27 mpg combined (25 city/30 highway). The GT trim, with all-wheel drive and the V6 engine, is rated at 23 mpg combined (20 city/27 highway).

The base ES model comes fairly well equipped with such features as heated side mirrors, alloy wheels and dual-zone automatic climate control. But higher trims offer such features as  adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a premium sound system. And only the top-of-the-line GT gets the V6 engine. Whatever your needs, let Edmunds help you find the right 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander for you.
