Hey Darlings! It’s the month of Love. Well actually every month is the month of Love in my world. So….I had an amazing adventure all planned out and guess what? Ya girl got a head cold thanks to the bi-polar weather we’ve been experiencing here in Atlanta so needless to say that I had to cancel my previous plans but hey one disaster doesn’t stop the show.
Last week Mitsubishi delivered their latest addition to the family, the 2019 Outlander Sport 2.4 GT AWC 4-Door SUV. Now you all know that I have a crazy love for an SUV. I will admit that I prefer a larger body type but this was perfect for my size family especially with my oldest being in college. I’m also use to a more quieter vehicle. I did notice that I could hear as I was driving but I wasn’t sure if it was the sound from the tires or if you can just hear motions while driving. These aren’t major issues for me because overall the test drive was very enjoyable …well the time that we spent together.
I’ve had a love for Mitsubishi for quite a while. I was definitely impressed with the upgrade on both the exterior and interior. I’m currently in the market for a new vehicle and the Outlander is among my top 5. I was immediately in love with the beautiful pearl white color. It felt like a perfect match to my lifestyles. The moment that I took this beauty for a spin I could see myself driving one every day and on spontaneous road trips. I need a vehicle that I can just jump in at a moments notice when I get that urge to pack an overnight bag and hit the road.
Can we talk about the MPG on this sweet ride? The 2019 gets 24 city miles and 28 highway. Can you say HECK YEAH? The way that the gas prices continue to play yo-yo I am excited that this SUV kept my wallet full. I can definitely say that a tank goes a long way. Granted my travel consist of local traveling with the occasional venture into the city but the miles per gallon on this baby gave me LIFE!!
The 2019 features are so amazing! Here are a few of my favorites:
- Power folding side-view mirrors
- Heated power side-view mirrors
- Rear window intermittent wiper/washer with defroster
- High intensity Discharge (HD headlights)
- Dual-visor vanity mirrors with illumination
- 6-way adjustable driver’s seat
- 4-way adjustable front passenger seat
- 5 passenger seating
- Leather-wrapped steering wheel
- Heated front seats
- Smartphone Link Display Audio (SDA) System
- Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Compatibility
- SiriusXM Radio
- Bluetooth wireless technology
- Rearview camera
- FAST -Key passive entry system with push button start and panic feature
Safety & Security
- Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist
- Traction Control (TCL)
- Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
- Three-point seat belts and head restraints for all seating positions
- LATCH child-restraint system
- Anti-theft alarm systems
- Anti-theft engine immobilizer
As many of you know when I test drive cars I absolutely love sharing my favorite features. As a mom it’s very important that my family is safe at all times. I absolutely adore the fact that Mitsubishi has taken massive steps to ensure that SAFETY is always #1 on their list before a cute exterior which is also adorable. I love that they take the Three-point seat belt system up a notch along with the LATCH child-restraint systems. These are top priority for many moms like myself.
The pricing on this baby wasn’t too bad especially for an SUV. The MSRP cost is $26,545.00 and if you add the additional equipment package which is a MUST and taxes you’re looking at around $28,160. When I add in the amount of money that I will save with the saving on fuel while driving the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander the bottom line cost is a breeze.
Head to your local Mitsubishi Dealer and take the 2019 Outlander for a test drive!
