I received the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport for review purposes but all opinions are my own.
We were invited to check the Sweet Lights at Hershey, PA! Just picture this: winter, cold, possibly snow, gorgeous hotel on the mountain and a fun weekend ahead!
When you plan a trip in the winter to a cold climate area, part of preparing for your drive is making sure you have the right vehicle to handle any weather and any challenges your road trip might bring you, to avoid unpleasant surprises.
Our vehicles are small and not really snow friendly, so we were extremely excited to be able to take the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.
The perfect Winter Ride:
4 Wheel Drive – Great in the snow
Spacious – remember I have a 6’5″ teen
Perfect height to allow us to have a great view of the Sweet Lights with vehicles along side of us
Road Trip Day: snow started to fall! Here we go!
After a fun road trip, we arrived at the the hotel, picture perfect for the best winter trip, isn’t it?
After a delicious dinner, we embarked on the ride through the attraction called Sweet Lights!
We entered a spectacle of colors, music and lights! The snow covered grounds made the perfect frame for a trip we won’t forget!
Such a beautiful road with lights, Christmas history and the best that the holiday season can bring!
We could see the bright lights in front of us and behind us, all that the beautiful attraction could offer through our windows.
We left promising we would be back next year!
Here are some things we loved about the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport:
Spacious, as I said, my 6’5″ son could fit comfortably in it and had a great comfortable ride!
Great pick up, the CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) shifted gears so smoothly, making the ride extremely enjoyable, even when we hit some traffic.
Great for driving in the snow, perfect vehicle for road trips
3 Settings for the AWC (All Wheel Control)
- Normal – 2 Wheel Drive
- Automatic All Wheel Drive
- Locked Hubs All Wheel Drive
Very bright headlights, providing great visibility
Mitsubishi is one of the few auto manufacturers that allows you to adjust the headlight height from the dashboard – great option for when the vehicle is loaded down with cargo and you need to lower the headlights to stop them from shining into the oncoming driver’s face
Panoramic glass roof with ambience lighting
Fuel efficient, we averaged between 28 – 29 mpg
Trendy And Stylish
Here are some things you should know:
It did not have a navigation program built in, we had to use our phone and add the app that Mitsubishi uses for a navigation system
No adaptive cruise control
No USB/electric charging port option in the back
No option to control the temperature / fans from the back seats
We loved traveling in the Outlander Sport and found it to be the perfect vehicle for our winter trip to Hershey PA.
