Your family is growing and that little two-door sedan just isn’t cutting it. What you need is a crossover or SUV like the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross or Outlander.

Families have a lot of stuff

The larger your family, the more stuff you need to take with you wherever you go. It starts with car seats and diaper bags, then moves on to sports equipment and camping gear. A crossover offers the cargo space that families need to haul all this stuff for every stage of life.

The Eclipse Cross offers 22.6 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row, while the Outlander has 34.2 cubic feet of space behind the second row when the third row is folded down. Unlike a truck, a crossover carries cargo in an enclosed and weather-proof space; not to mention being much easier to park.

Bringing friends along

It’s much easier to get in and out of the second row of seating in a crossover or SUV than in a sedan. The Eclipse Cross has two rows of seating and can carry five passengers, while the Outlander has a third row and can carry seven people.

Safety

Crossovers come with many safety features built into the design and construction of the vehicle, as well as technological assists to help drivers stay away, keep to their lane, or avoid collisions. The Outlander also has LED headlights and optional fog lights to let you see what’s coming.

When you’re looking for the perfect ride for your family, look no further than the affordable and classy lineup available at Don Robinson Mitsubishi in St. Cloud.

We at Don Robinson Mitsubishi believe that St. Cloud is a wonderful place to live and work, but everyone needs a vacation, right? If you’re planning on loading up your Mitsubishi Outlander or Outlander Sport this summer for a family road trip but don’t know where to go, consider a few of these ideas:

  • Louis, Missouri: The city with the famed Arch offers a lot to do, including the City Museum. It’s a 10-hour drive from St. Cloud, meaning you can make it there in a just a day’s drive.
  • Sandusky, Ohio: Sandusky is known for having what is arguably the world’s best roller coaster haven: Cedar Point. A 12-hour drive from St. Cloud is all that is between you and a couple of days riding coasters on the beach. Make it a theme park trip, and drive another 4 hours to experience Ohio’s Kings Island near Cincinnati.
  • Denver, Colorado: The city of Denver has plenty to offer culturally, and it’s just a 13-and-a-half-hour drive. If you switch off with your spouse, you’ll be able to make it to the Mile High City in your Mitsubishi SUV in just one day.
  • Chicago, Illinois: The Windy City is the closest option on this list, but perhaps offers the most to do, whether you’d like to spend time on the beach or explore downtown. You and your family can be there in just a 7-hour drive from St. Cloud.

Be sure to bring your Mitsubishi in for routine maintenance at Don Robinson Mitsubishi before any road trip this summer.
