5 reasons to buy the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander

1. Generous standard equipment

The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander has plenty to offer both inside and out. Even on its base ES trim, you'll find a long list of standard features that include a seven-inch touchscreen display, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth® connectivity, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

2. Third-row seating

If you're looking for a crossover SUV that offers three rows of seating, the 2018 Outlander has you covered. This crossover offers a standard 50/50-split third row with seating capacity of up to seven people. The second row of the 2018 Outlander is designed to accommodate three passengers across, whereas the third row can hold an additional two passengers.

3. Ample trim configurations

No matter what you're looking for in a crossover SUV, there's likely to be a 2018 Outlander trim to suit your needs. There are five trims to choose from: the ES, the SE, the LE, the SEL, and the range-topping GT. The mid-range LE is a compelling option for many drivers with features like keyless ignition, heated front seats, smartphone integration, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

4. Respectable fuel economy

For a vehicle of its size, the 2018 Outlander offers decent fuel economy for those who are looking to spread out stops at the pump. Specifically, the 2018 Outlander base ES trim with 2.4L four-cylinder engine, automatic transmission, and front-wheel drive gets an EPA-estimated 27 mph combined.

5. Spacious interior and storage

Despite offering room for up to seven passengers, the 2018 Outlander remains surprisingly spacious inside. While the third row is best suited for children or smaller passengers, the front and second rows offer plenty of space to stretch out and get comfortable. Meanwhile, cargo space on the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander is generous as well, with a 10.3 cu-ft trunk offered behind its third row. With the 50/50-split third row folded down, however, this cargo storage area readily extends to 34.2 cu-ft for additional space.
