The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander 2.4 SEL S-AWC offers a features list no other crossover in its class does. Does it make up for a lack of driving thrills?
Torque News recently had a chance to spend a little over a week behind the wheel of the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander 2.4 SEL S-AWC Touring. Before we get started, we will break down the model code for those who don’t speak Mitsubishi:
- Outlander – A sort of compact crossover with two rows of seating for adults and a pop-up third row with two seats for temporary kid carpool duty.
- 2.4 – Refers to the displacement of the four-cylinder non-turbo engine in liters. Translation “slow and steady captain.”
- SEL – A top trim
- S-AWC – Super All Wheel Control. Means it has all-wheel drive, but a system we particularly like.
- Touring – This is an important package that adds safety systems found standard on many crossovers today like forward collision prevention. Also adds a premium audio package, a moonroof and other goodies like a heated steering wheel.
