I was provided with a vehicle for a week for this 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander review. As always, opinions are my own.
Y’all know I’m a total car girl. Road trips are my thing and there’s almost nothing more natural to me than being behind the wheel of a sweet new ride. Whether it’s a quick 2 hour road trip to pick up a new kitten (like we did this past weekend) or a longer journey, I’m down for a fun adventure any time.
Spring in the Midwest has been a bit odd this year, to say the very least, so the day that the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander was delivered, there happened to be a bunch of snow on the ground, with even more coming the next day. Living in a rural area, I need a vehicle that can get me through any kind of weather and I’m happy to report that the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander SEL 2.4 handled very well of those wet and slick roads thanks to its Super All-Wheel Control capability.
Many cars have the same features, so I won’t divulge too much, but I want to point out some of the unique exterior features of the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander.

The interior is spacious for a family with teens like mine, with plenty of leg room and seating for all. The third row seat comes in handy when you need more room.
The seats can also be folded completely down for extra cargo space in the back. Speaking of the back, there is even a nice sub-woofer to provide the ultimate listening experience when you’re jamming to your favorite songs.
The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander really has all of the features that need need to take a road trip in comfort and style. With 25/30 MPG, you won’t use a whole lot of gas either! Stop in your local Mitsubishi dealer for a test drive today!
