2015 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has been named The Motor Report’s Best Buy of 2015 after the publication spent “countless hours” comparing the cars on its Top Ten Best Buys 2015.

The Outlander PHEV, which is getting a new facelift this year, is one of our best family offerings by Mitsubishi Motors. It’s the world’s first plug-in SUV, with an electric range of about 50 kilometers (31 miles) to help families make fewer trips to the pump.

The Motor Report claims that after tracking fuel consumption over a month of use on regional roads, including regular longer runs, the Outlander PHEV averaged 3.8 liters/100km.  This comes out to be about 61 miles per gallon.

The Motor Report also applauded its versatile packaging, performance, and value. The Motor Report says that, “this very clever piece of advanced EV technology not only establishes a new affordable benchmark for sustainable motoring, but, by packaging these technologies into an SUV, Mitsubishi engineers have moved the goal posts significantly in drivability, ease-of-ownership, and practicality.”

We here at Don Robinson Mitsubishi can’t wait until we get to see one!  Stop in with us to get all the latest information about it!

The Mitsubishi Mirage is compact and affordable, and now, as a top performer in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) tests, it is incredibly safe.

2015 Mitsubishi MirageThe Federal New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) crash-test results are out, and the ratings for the 2015 Mirage are impressive. The Mirage earned four-stars in all frontal crash subcategories and five stars in all side-crash testing. Also included is a five-star rating in the side pole test, which simulates a side impact with a tree, utility pole, or other narrow object at 20 mph.

When it comes to the subcompact car segment, very few cars are considered top performers in safety tests.  The Mitsubishi Mirage’s safety scores prove that small cars do not have to sacrifice safety.

Because the Mirage is a budget-friendly car that does not sacrifice safety, style or fuel economy, it’s the ideal car for your teen driver, for your daily commute, or for road trips on the weekend. Stop by Don Robinson Mitsubishi today to see the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage for yourself and even test drive one today!

Driving off into the SunsetTake a bow, Lancer Evolution. You’ve had a great run over the years but your time has finally come. That’s right, after the 2015 model year the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, staple sports car of the brand, will be withdrawn from the manufacturer’s starting lineup. The Lancer Evolution is leaving big tire tracks to fill and they’re only enlarged by the final model’s impressive specifications.

The final Lancer Evolution model will see an all-out play in the form of the Evo GSR, fully equipped with a whole bundle of a speed fanatic’s fantasy. The GSR races off into the sunset with 473 horsepower under the hood, tearing up the track beneath its 19-inch wheels. To compare, the standard model puts out 291 horsepower, which is nothing to be scoffed at but doesn’t compare to the tire burning power of the GSR.

No new Evo model is set to take the reins, at least not for a couple of years anyway. Suspicion suggests that the replacement will be a hybrid but there is no confirmation on that just yet. After ten generations, we can only bid the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution farewell as it drives off into the distant sunset.
