We needed to upgrade to a larger family vehicle with our growing family, I didn't however want to drive a tank! The Outlander rides like a car, very smooth! more than plenty of room! Very nice features! We bought the base model for budget reasons and it still has the leatherette seats, Bluetooth, tow hitch, three rows, 2WD, 4WD and 4WD Lock! When driving in 2WD it is front wheel instead of rear wheel which makes me feel more comfortable!
Bought the car a little over a month ago and now have 75000 miles on it. I really like the new design, the fact that it comes standard with 3 rows of seats. The interior isn't flashy but it doesn't seem like cheap plastic either. I like the radio, 8 inch wheels, heated seats, integrated blue tooth, fog lights ect. and all the other options for the price over competing SUV's.
