Today (Memorial Day) marks the unofficial start of Summer, one of my favorite seasons not just because of the high temperatures but all that comes with it. School is out for starters, it’s BBQ time, pool days & time for vacations! Speaking of vacations, if road trips are top on your list, keep reading for my review of the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander, a hybrid SUV which gives you 74mpg with the electricity and gasoline. One thing you won’t have to worry about spending a lot of money on with the Outlander is gas! It was my first experience with a hybrid and I’ll have to admit it did take a bit of a learning curve for me (after my first drive, I was good to go.) I got the opportunity to test drive the 2019 Outlander a few weeks ago thanks to Mitsubishi and I am sharing my review on today’s post. ( all opinions shared are mine.)
There was so much I loved about this hybrid SUV from how it charges while you drive (how cool is that, so you don’t always have to plug it in!) to how quiet the engine was, which was much appreciated while driving down I-16E on my way to Savannah. I was so quiet I didn’t even hear any loud noise when it started.
Road trips are always a great way to test how a vehicle moves and responds to the ever-changing and unpredictable conditions on the road. I am happy to report that it was a pleasant experience in the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander.
I fell in love with the exterior and interior of this vehicle. I am a sucker for red vehicles, so the Rally red metallic exterior and black interior is a perfect combination IMO. One feature I absolutely love is the backup camera system (I love that I have the options of seeing not just my back view but also both sides) it made for easy parking. For someone who struggles with parallel parking, I felt more confident backing up in the Mitsubishi Outlander.

With Fuel Economy and Gas rating of 9, it felt great driving in an SUV that emitted less CO2 than the average SUV on the road. I love that charging this car was a one-step process and the car locks while charging to prevent theft.
Things to note: The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander comes with a 10-year 100,000 miles limited powertrain warranty, 5-year unlimited roadside assistance just to name a few of the perks. You can read more about it HERE.
Verdict: If you’re in the market for a hybrid SUV which you should consider over a gasoline SUV, I recommend taking the Outlander for a test drive and you just might become a believer like me!
