2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Review

The 2012 Outlander gives you the drive you’ll love and the space to bring everyone along. It has the power and stability to go wherever you want. Under the hood of the GT sits a powerful 3 liter MIVEC engine capable of an impressive 230 horsepower. In the ES and SE model a 2.4 liter 4-clinder MIVEC engine that meets the exacting environmental standards required to receive a coveted partial zero emissions vehicle rating. On the outlander we’ve pulled out all the stops to assure your experience on the road is exceptional down to the last detail. Advanced technological features like the FUSE hands-free link system and 40GB touch screen navigation with music server give you control over every element of your drive. With 72.6 cubic feet of cargo room the choices are endless. The flap-fold tailgate gives you instant access to the space you need while helping make light work of even the heaviest load. The 2012 Outlander is as much a safety standout as the previous Outlander generations with features like multiple airbags active stability control and more. The 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Different for a reason.
