Mitsubishi is celebrating its 25th anniversary of selling cars in the U. S. by unveiling the second-generation Outlander compact SUV, and the competition should take notice. Compact in name only, the 2007 Outlander is longer, taller, and wider than the model it replaces. A wider track helps increase hip room. And despite a minimum ground clearance of 8.5 inches, step-in is easy and car-like.

 

In other words, this new Outlander’s a much stiffer competitor for the RAV4, the CR-V, and the Escape. And with its newly acquired third-row seat, the Outlander puts a foot in the world of true mid-sized utes like the Honda Pilot.

 

The new Outlander retains the nimbleness, sporty design and fuel economy associated with the smaller size, though. Granted, you are not going to drive around long-legged supermodels in the third-row seat but you can hold small kids captive. (But if you are toting supermodels…hey, where’s our phonecall?)

 

The Dramamine antidote

 

forum
I recently drove the ’07 Outlander on the twisty, hilly roads and freeways north of San Francisco , an area where I’d like to have the Dramamine concession. This time the queasies stayed at the hotel: the Outlander performed seamlessly thanks to fine suspension tuning and a new six-speed Sportronic transmission coupled to a 3.0-liter, single overhead cam V-6.
