New Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Revealed at Chicago Auto Show

The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a top competitor in the small crossover segment and now it’s getting a boost. The new Limited Edition trim officially debuted at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, sporting new design enhancements and plenty of technology. The new Outlander Sport maintains its surprisingly affordable price despite the new high-end features.

Thus far, the new Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has done a spectacular job at bringing all the features drivers want without the ridiculously high prices. Plenty of standard equipment and technologies come loaded into the new Limited Edition trim, continuing the value-oriented offering from the Japanese automaker.

“We’ve now taken that approach one step further by integrating additional standard equipment and technology into the Limited Edition at a price point that is unprecedented within the broader CUV segment,” said Don Swearingen, executive vice president and COO of Mitsubishi Motors North America.

Starting at just $21,995, the new Limited Edition trim boasts styling cues like black 18-inch alloy wheels, a rearview camera, exclusive badging, and more. Inside, drivers can expect a sport-inspired design completed with aluminum pedals. Comfort features include heated front seats while tech-savvy drivers will love the standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

Tips for Driving in the Rain

Traveling in wind and rain increases the chance of an accident, which is why taking proper precautions is incredibly important. If you must, drive, do so safely. Here are a few helpful tips for driving in the rain from us here at Quebedeaux Mitsubishi.

  • Slow Down – Driving a little slower than normal is a necessity in the rain, as it gives you more time to stop. Slowing down will also help prevent your car from hydroplaning and potentially causing you to lose control of the vehicle altogether.
  • Stay Aware – Strong storms tend to bring high winds which can lead to disaster on the road. Larger vehicles are prone to drifting in and out of their lanes as a result of high winds more so than smaller cars. Make sure to keep your eyes open and leave plenty of space between you and other vehicles. Doing so will give you more time to react and come to a stop in the event of an accident or emergency.
  • Lights – Driving with your lights not only helps your own visibility but it helps other cars see you amid the rain and gray background as well. Make sure your headlights work properly and change out any burnt bulbs. Some states will give you a ticket for driving in the rain without your headlights on.
