Mitsubishi's New Crossover

Mitsubishi’s new crossover has been in the works for quite some time, and now it looks like we’ll be getting an official debut. The 2017 Geneva Motor Show takes place in March, and, following the teaser photo the automaker released not too long ago, that’s where we’ll see it live. Best of all, the new model won’t premiere as a concept vehicle, but rather as a production vehicle!

Look

The new compact crossover is both sporty and coupe-like. The teaser photo reveals the profile which matches the description pretty well. The C-pillar and beltline offer a look that’s nearly spot-on. The front end looks similar to the Outlander’s, due largely in part to the similar headlights. The utility vehicle will be slotted between the Outlander Sport and standard Outlander models.

Availability

The Outlander Sport is expected to shrink and the standard Outlander will grow slightly between 2019 and 2020. The new model will likely arrive in the United States in early 2018.

Keep an eye out for Mitsubishi’s new crossover at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show on March 7th. There’s no pricing available just yet, but knowing Mitsubishi, the compact crossover will be a true value.

We here at Don Robinson Mitsubishi can’t wait for the official unveiling of the new Mitsubishi crossover.

Hitting the road for a winter vacation isn’t like traveling during the summer months. Winter brings harsh weather that can dramatically change familiar roadways until they’re nearly unrecognizable. Sleet, snow, and ice are all factors that drivers have to be aware of. Here are some excellent travel tips for winter from us here at Don Robinson Mitsubishi.

Travel Tips for Winter

Watch the Weather

Keeping an eye on your local weather forecast and the forecast of where you will be headed is one way to avoid harsh weather. Knowing that snow or ice is incoming will help you prepare accordingly, both physically and mentally. Take a few minutes out of your preparations to look at the weather.

Slow Down

Everything takes longer on slick roads. Turning, braking, and accelerating all see significant delays depending on how bad the roads are. Take the time to slow down to give yourself more time to react to unexpected situations. Your car (and your heart) will thank you.

Familiarize Yourself with Roadside Assistance

In the event that you do end up on the side of the road, it always helps to have a roadside assistance service that can help. Some automakers provide a few years of roadside assistance with the purchase of a new vehicle. Independent organizations, like AAA, offer paid subscriptions as well.
