Seating is spacious, headroom is and the panoramic glass rooftop is undeniably breathtaking.

No one will that Mitsubishi is a struggling car here in the U.S. The Outlander is one of a handful of models that the still sells on our shores and its feel and lackluster appeal wrought havoc on its market To revive that, the Outlander and smaller Sport brother revitalized for 2013 in anticipation of a revamp for 2014.

Those upgrades for this model go a long way towards it into marketability and give the a strong hint of class the interior sees some ergonomic updates to match.
