2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

Next to the highly anticipated release of the newly revamped 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander, you may think the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport will not be as exciting.  Although there haven’t been as many changes to the Outlander Sport as the Outlander, this year’s model has plenty of new things to offer.

The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport exterior updates include a new “Dynamic Shield,” new 18” alloy wheels, and power folding side door mirrors with turn signal indicators built right in.  Also, the Outlander Sport has more colors to choose from this year ranging from Labrador Black, Octane Blue, Cool Silver, Rally Red and the standard Diamond White Pearl.

As for the engine, the 2.4L MIVEC engine is standard for the SE, SEL, and GT trims and includes a CVT automatic transmission.  There is also an optional AWC System available for each trim level.

The interior of the new Outlander Sport has all new seats and steering wheel along with some cool features like the auto-dimming rearview mirror and the 6.1” Display Audio System that is new and improved.  These features are added to the long list of already standard features available.

Here at Don Robinson Mitsubishi, we cannot wait to get the new Outlander Sport in to see how the new upgrades perform and to simply see the new cool exterior in person.  Be sure to stop by the dealership soon to see it for you as well!

Mitsubishi Mirage

2015 Mitsubishi Mirage

The IHS Model Loyalty Award for the Non-Luxury Traditional Sub-Compact segment was given to the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage for the second year in a row.

IHS Automotive makes a list each year the vehicles that have the highest model loyalty, which is determined by number of households that purchase or lease a second vehicle of the same model. Once again, the Mitsubishi Mirage has been one vehicle that brings its customers back for more.

The award highlights the affordability and desirable features of the Mirage, which has been called the most affordable car to drive on the market thanks to its combination of low price, high fuel economy, and exceptional powertrain warranty. As Don Swearingen, executive vice president of Mitsubishi Motors North America, said, the Mirage is “one of the true hidden gems in the automotive industry.”  We would have to agree here at Don Robinson Mitsubishi!

The Mirage will be updated in 2017 to include more features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and will remain one of the most affordable cars on the market. The announcement of the new Mirage came soon after reports of a 30% increase in sales from 2014 to 2015.  We look forward to seeing what else the Mirage will bring to the table in future generations!
