I can’t imagine living in Atlanta and not having my own vehicle. When I’m ready to get going, I like being able to grab my keys and go. Driving in or around the city takes lots of patience and although I can’t say that I love driving, having reliable transportation that is stylish and spacious makes navigating these Atlanta streets just a little bit better. Enter the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander SEL.
At first glance my original thought was - Oh! This is cute, until I opened the door. This SUV has all the bells and whistles that makes driving a breeze. From the LED Auto High Beam Headlights (that you don’t even have to worry about turning on, it’s automatically done for you) to the Backup Camera System (to see what’s behind you when backing up). Not only was I impressed, I was super excited to take this baby on the road.
Now that Georgia is a hands-free state, I wasted no time syncing my phone to the Outlander’s Smartphone Link Display. This feature made it easy for me to stay connected with my family or friend’s without breaking any laws. For those moments when I wasn’t chatting it up, I jammed to my favorite songs by accessing the music app on my phone over Bluetooth, all at the tap of my finger.
The most impressive aspect was how roomy it is on the inside. I was surprised at how much space there was for my husband to ride comfortably. At 6’ 2” my husband needs all the leg room he can get. It even proved roomy enough for me to change outfits in the back seat during my last photo session. And to show how versatile the 2019 Outlander is, the third-row seating makes for even more space for up to 7 passengers or for additional cargo space.
My favorite feature of all was the Blind Spot Warning and Lane Change Assist. The alert you get when a vehicle is near by is the coolest thing ever. With the warning lights and alerts you get while driving, I love that this feature is designed to make sure that you and your family arrive to your destination safely.
Over all my driving experience with the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander SEL was awesome. I just hate that I had to give “Blue” back (I named her, is that weird?)
