Charleston Mitsubishi – Why Buy – SUVs and Crossovers

You’re in the market for a new vehicle, and you know that crossovers and SUVs are all the rage. If it’s been a while since you’ve browsed what’s on the lot, you may be stuck with the impression of the utility vehicle as a cumbersome gas-guzzler. Today’s crossovers — including vehicles like the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, Outlander Sport, Outlander, and Outlander PHEV — would beg to differ with that perception.

So why consider a crossover from the Mitsubishi lineup? The reasons are many.

Fuel economy

Today’s SUVs and crossovers are far more fuel-efficient, meaning you don’t have to expect to spend a ton of time and money at the gas station. The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is a fine example of this — by combining twin electric motors with a powerful gasoline engine, the Outlander PHEV returns an incredible 74 MPGe.* The Eclipse Cross (29 mpg on the highway), Outlander Sport (30 mpg on the highway), and Outlander (30 mpg on the highway) also offer mileage comparable to that of much smaller and less powerful vehicles.**

Driving dynamics

There’s nothing clunky or ungainly about Mitsubishi utility vehicles, which offer impressive handling and overall driving dynamics. The best way to experience the nimbleness of a Mitsubishi crossover is with available Super All-Wheel Control, which leverages technologies like the Active Front Differential, Active Stability Control, and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution to make taking corners a breeze even in inclement weather. With performance-geared suspension, steering, and body construction, the Mitsubishi crossover lineup is proficient off-road and on-, making it a great all-around performer for any kind of trip.


Spaciousness and utility are the natural draws of crossovers, and the new Mitsubishi lineup offers it all in abundance. The Eclipse Cross, Outlander Sport, and Outlander PHEV all capably seat up to five with plenty of space left over to store luggage, camping gear, or just the groceries. If you’ve got bigger needs, the three-row Outlander ups the seating capacity to seven, making it the ultimate party vehicle for family road-trips and well-deserved getaways with your friends.

There is no shortage of reasons why you should consider a new crossover from Mitsubishi. To learn more of these reasons and get some hands-on experience, stop into Charleston Mitsubishi and take one of these adventurous vehicles for a test drive.
