With a full model redesign still visible in the rearview mirror, you've got to hand it Mitsubishi for taking the bull by the horns and making major changes to the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander. Even though they are largely cosmetic updates to the exterior, it's clear that Mitsubishi wants to keep your attention on this stylish and functional vehicle. If you are looking for a crossover SUV or CUV as the Outlander is tagged, this is one of the 2016 new cars in Olympia that is worth checking out.
From the new redesigned model that arrived in 2014, Mitsubishi has updated this year's Outlander with over 100 exciting new improvements, from grille work up front to a new continuously variable transmission inside. Acceleration and efficiency are improved with the 4-cylinder delivering 31 mpg on the highway.
The Outlander remains one of the only crossovers on the market to offer standard third-row seating, which is a nice luxury. Mitsubishi brings back both the 2.4L four-cylinder engine that those looking for improved gas mileage will prefer, while a 3.0L V6 option grants the 2016 Outlander a 2,000-lb. increase in towing capacity, to a total of 3,500 lbs.
Across the board, the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander also received platform improvements to its handling and ride. Add in the Mitsubishi "Fuse" infotainment system, bringing Bluetooth audio and phone connectivity standard to all trim levels, and it is hard to argue that the Outlander isn't one of the most feature-packed entries in the segment.
If you've been on the lookout for a new vehicle, check out the Outlander. It is the most affordable Crossover Utility Vehicle with 3 rows of seats and plenty of pickup.
