2018 Mitsubishi Outlanders Earn Automotive Science Group Honors

automotive science group honorsEvery year, the Automotive Science Group honors innovators in the automotive industry for leading in technological, safety, and performance advancements. For 2018, both the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and the Mitsubishi Outlander have earned top honors from that discerning and hard-to-impress set of vehicular scientists.

Both the Mitsubishi Outlander and the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV were bestowed with the “Best 5 All-Around Performance” award. In order to be one of the top five, a vehicle must score highest in its class in environmental, social, and economic performance surveys.

This top-spot was earned out of a pool of 372 competing models. Today, the crossover and SUV market is more popular than ever, so the size and stiffness of the competition the Outlander platform had to take on was bigger than before. However, we weren’t surprised when the Outlanders blew that competition out of the water.

At Dependable Mitsubishi, you could say that we’re close to “experts” when it comes to the auto industry — it is our passion and livelihood after all. So when we see something special like the attractive, efficient, and reliable Outlander models, we take notice — and the real experts agree.

If you want to see and test-drive the two crossovers that scored the coveted Automotive Science Group honors, come to Dependable Mitsubishi today.

Earlier this month, Mitsubishi unleashed details on the newest iteration of its popular economy model, the Mirage. If we learned one thing from the latest announcement, it’s that designers weren’t messing around when it came to the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage tech options. Even the base ES model has been outfitted with connectivity options that rival those of much pricier vehicle segments.

For 2018, the Mitsubishi Mirage ES base model (which starts at $13,395) will get a 7-inch touchscreen display audio unit that boasts a rearview camera and Bluetooth® phone and audio streaming, complemented by steering wheel Bluetooth® controls.

Connective technology only improves from there up the lineup. The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage SE and GT trims both benefit from a center console USB port, as well as Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility.

“The Mirage offers consumers a new vehicle option that provides the reliability, connectivity and warranty-reassurance that other cars in the segment cannot,” explained Don Swearingen, executive vice president and chief operating officer, Mitsubishi Motors North America. “The practical appeal seen in its predecessors is at the core of the 2018 Mirage and we look forward to seeing this model-year continue to build on its steadfast momentum.”

The affordable and tech-laden Mirage manages 43 miles per gallon on the highway* and comes with Mitsubishi’s gold-star warranty: the best in the industry. Test drive the 2018 Mirage today at Dependable Mitsubishi.
