A couple weeks ago, I headed down to Portland for a few days for work. I got the chance to take Mitsubishi Outlander Sport down to Portland and had a fun time with it.
Portland In The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
The first thing that I did when I got into the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport was to set the satellite radio to Christmas music and start singing along. The sound system in the Outlander Sport is awesome which was great for blasting while I drove down I5 and definitely made the road trip go a bit faster.
If you are hoping for a bit more manual driving experience, make sure to check out the paddle shifters to control your gear shifting. I didn’t try them out on this trip; but I have tried them in other Mitsubishis and they worked great.
One day while in town, it started snowing (and sticking!). I was kinda excited while I looked out the window thinking that I might get to try out the AWD capabilities; however, by lunch it had all melted. We took the Outlander out to lunch and fit 5 adults in it (although the back seat was a little tight).
The sunroof on the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is absolutely amazing. It stretches all the way to the second row (the roof rack has some running lights on it as well which is what you see reflecting in the photo below).
Of course I had to take advantage of some tax free shopping while in town, and I definitely hit the jackpot on a couple items for Christmas! The trunk in the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport offered plenty of space for all my shopping bags. I could have shopped even more and still have space for my luggage.
My favorite aspects of the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport were definitely the sound system and sunroof. It handled well in the rainy I5 drive and I was surprised that it offered AWD at a lower price point. Which feature would be your favorite?

One of my must-haves when it comes to buying a vehicle is a sunroof. I love how big the sunroof is in the Outlander! And it’s definitely a bonus to have a good sound system!

We are in the market for a second car – need to upgrade to a slightly bigger one. How are the cup holders? Specifically, how many are there? #veryimportantcarquestionsfromamom
