The 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander SE S-AWC w/Touring comes standard with features like Color-keyed power side-view mirrors with turn indicators, front/rear bumper with silver accent, and outer door handles. There are standard Heated side-view mirrors, Front windshield variable intermittent wipers, Rear window intermittent wiper/ washer with defroster, all of which can be true life savers in some terrible weather conditions like we are used to in Michigan.
Inside each Outlander comes standard with Color multi-information display, Dual-visor vanity mirrors with illumination, Micron air filtration, heated front seats, 6-way adjustable driver's seat and Rear heater floor ducts with little extras like leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. There are lights throughout the entire vehicle. And the BIGGEST feature is the 7 passenger seating standard in all models.
I loved the inside and particularly for my size family!All three of my kids fit comfortably in the back with my sisters joining at one point for an event we attended together. I love the standard FUSE Hands-free Link System® with Bluetooth® technology, USB port, and steering wheel controls which keep my eyes on the road even while driving with 3 rambunctious kids.
The vehicle had a smooth ride with what seemed like quite a bit of power and handled great in the snow and ice. The Rear Camera Display and Backup Warning System keeps an eye out as you back up for more than just moving objects (children, grocery carts) but possible bikes parked behind you or even trees or barriers.
I was a bit overwhelmed by the amount of buttons on the screen in the center dash. While it is great to have all the extra features, it was pretty difficult to navigate through all the options as well as make any selections. We had to spend at least an hour trying to play with options in the driveway so we could actually enjoy each feature while on the road.
Available to Purchase/Cost: Starting at $23,195 Outlander
Recommendation: I have to say that overall the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander SE S-AWC w/Touring AWD handled extremely well in both dry and wet conditions, the safety features are in line with keeping my family safe, and it had tons of room. While I was impressed with the features and would recommend it as a family vehicle, I wouldn't purchase it myself. I felt the price was a bit much for the interior features. The biggest reason I'd see myself buying it is for the 7 passenger seating without having to get a minivan!
