Seven Days with the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport


Reality: My car has been destroyed by my 2 year-old.

Dream: To have a car that’s not destroyed by my 2 year-old.

We can all dream, right?

That’s why I was honestly thrilled to have the opportunity to spend a week experiencing the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

Rated as an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) as a “Top Safety Pick” and manufactured at Mitsubishi Motors North America’s plant in Normal, Illinois, the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander (starting MSRP of $19,595) offers dynamic styling and excellent value in the 5-passenger compact crossover segment.

Here’s how I spent 7 days with the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport:

Day 1

When you’re the one providing all the water play supplies for a #grandviewmoms Water Play Party, here’s how you pack your trunk.

Did everything fit? Why yes, yes it did.

Day 2

Time for #dailybocaavery’s 2.5 year-old well visit at her pediatrician! She did great and took her flu shot like a champ.

She definitely earned a cake pop from Starbucks…

Day 3-5

#modernbocadad and I drove up to St. Augustine for my college’s Alumni Board of Directors meeting! Isn’t Flagler College beautiful?

We had quite the smooth ride on I-95 and never got lost in town thanks to the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport‘s navigation system.

And how about this moon roof? My favorite feature of this car, by far. 🙂

Day 6

It might have been Columbus Day, but this was no day off for us! #dailybocaavery had Baby Ballet & Musikgarten at Organic Movements and MBMom had Pound, so I drove there no less than 3 times that day.

Good thing the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has great gas mileage…

2015-10-12 18.27.46

2015 Outlander Sport models equipped with a cost-variable transmission (CVT) unit benefit from improved fuel economy at an estimated 25 mpg city/32 mpg highway/28 mpg combined (2.0-liter engine/2WD models) and 24 mpg city/30 mpg highway/27 mpg combined (2.0-liter engine/4WD models)*, making the 2015 Outlander Sport one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles in its class.

*Preliminary estimated fuel economy numbers pending final determination by the EPA.

Day 7

Finally a day for MB-MOMMA! While #dailybocaavery spent the morning at school, I took advantage of Spa Week facial pricing at Boca Raton’s Eden Day Spa.

After that, it was back to reality with school pickup and swim lessons. What a week!

If you’re interested in purchasing a crossover vehicle, I definitely recommend this one. It’s a little on the small side (in my opinion) to be your main family ride. The 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport fit one car seat comfortably, but I think two might be a challenge.

But as a second car for zipping around town or taking a weekend getaway, sans kids? A dream.
