The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander was an excellent companion during my winter break! I was able to maneuver through the snow-covered streets with confidence and ease, thanks to the Super All-Wheel Controls. This advanced technology gives you maximum traction and makes driving around under various weather conditions much easier. The vehicle also has 4 diver modes including Normal, Snow, Lock and AWC ECO Mode. I found these modes especially handy while traveling approximate 50-55 minutes to visit family during the holidays.

The Labrador Black Metallic 4-door SUV was a nice ride, but I didn’t feel much difference between the 2018 and the 2017 model while driving. When it came to the physical and safety features, however, there were a few differences:
- 7-inch display touchscreen has replaced the 6.1-inch display
- Blind Spot Warning with Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- Chrome Grille Accents
- Lane Change Assist
During my winter break, I also took the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander for a spin to Downtown Baltimore. My parents gifted Darrius and I tickets to a comedy show for Christmas, so I thought the ride Downtown would be the perfect time to test out the backseat’s comfortability. With my parents seated in the 2nd row, they were able to comfortably withstand a 30-minute ride.
Although the 2nd row is said to fit 3 people, I think if another full-size adult was riding with my parents they would NOT be too comfy. It would be a snug fit, to say the least. Same goes for the 3rd-row; a snug, and even tight fit, for sure! For even more exterior and interior specifics, as well as more safety features and the price, check out the information below.

I really like the Mitsubishi Outlander as an affordable option with third row vehicles. I haven’t had the opportunity to test drive one yet, I am admittedly obsessed with the Toyota Highlander, but from my research the Outlander is definitely a good choice. #blmgirl
The 3rd-row definitely comes in handy, Aria! Especially if you have small children. Not sure how comfortable adults would be back there, lol, but kids yes! I loved how it drove in the snow. A huge plus for me!

I love that you mentioned the safety features of the Mitsubishi Outlander because that’s definitely an important consideration. For parents traveling with kids often,the child safety locks are a must!
