Birthday Cruising in the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
Special thanks to Driveshop and Mitsubishi for providing me with this vehicle free of charge to drive in exchange for my honest review. As always, all opinions expressed are my own.
Yea I know what you're thinking, my birthday was in February. This post is super super overdue and for that I have to first apologize because life had me a little bit behind and I'm just now pulling it back together.
Anywho thanks to the holiday and some other scheduling related things I got the chance to drive the 2015 Outlander Sport for a little over a week and it was FUN. We all drove into the city to see Sesame Street Live and then over the following weekend my boyfriend and I drove to Atlantic City to celebrate my birthday weekend a little early.
The panoramic sunroof was one of my favorite features of the car (other than the super low gas mileage, it was less than $25 to fill our tank up in New Jersey!). Since the sky was so clear it made me feel like we were on vacation somewhere with nice weather, rather than driving around in cold NYC!
Ample trunk space for Target trips is a MUST! This was one of our lighter trips. There was plenty of room for more groceries!
One thing that was a negative for me about the Outlander is that it does not have the LATCH safety feature for carseats in the middle. RJ is still rear facing and we like to put him in the middle for safety but he LOVED being next to/looking out of the window.
And with the convertible car seat rear-facing the car had to be pushed VERY far forward in order for the seat to be installed correctly. Not that practical if I wanted to drive and my boyfriend wanted sir in passenger seat ... his legs definitely wouldn't fit (sidenote:... breastpump in the cup holder? Ok Tanay..... LMAO. SORRY YALL! HAHA).
I've definitely concluded that I am an SUV girl! Is it the mom in me? I need one! Had RJ been forward facing already we would not have any spacing issues in the Outlander and this car would be perfect size for our family! I couldn't get enough of the sunroof, the heated leather seats, GPS navigation and Sirius XM radio and all the other bells and whistles!
Starting at $19,595 the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is definitely an SUV after my own heart. What kind of car do you drive? For more information about the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport visit their website, here.
