With a base price right around $20,000 for the cheapest models, the 2008 Mitsubishi Outlander in not where one might expect to find the most impressive features list, but this crossover always manages to impress. In terms of both standard and optional features, the 2008 Mitsubishi Outlander is easily one of the class leaders.

The Mitsubishi 2008 Outlander's four trim levels offer varying degrees of luxury when it comes to standard features, but even the base ES is nicely equipped. Edmunds writes that the Mitsubishi Outlander ES features "air-conditioning, a six-speaker CD stereo, cruise control, a trip computer, full power accessories and reclining rear seats," while the LS adds "keyless ignition, an auxiliary audio jack, [and] a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls."

For the two more luxurious trims, ConsumerGuide says to expect a "power sunroof," a "Rockford Fosgate AM/FM radio w/in-dash 6-disc CD/MP3 changer," and "satellite radio" on the Mitsubishi Outlander SE, while the top-of-the-line XLS adds "automatic climate control" and a "wireless cell phone link."

Mother Proof reviewers in particular rave about the fact that their Mitsubishi Outlander XLS is "Bluetooth capable with caller ID and voice-recognition software."

Options on the 2008 Mitsubishi Outlander come in the form of several packages and a few stand-alone features. Cars.com says that some of the most noteworthy options are "a 30GB hard-drive-based navigation system" and "rear seat DVD entertainment system with a 9-inch screen," both of which are available as stand-alone options. With that navigation system, Edmunds notes "for 2008, Mitsubishi has added a first-of-its-type feature that allows drivers to tailor their navigation directions based on carpool lanes."

ConsumerGuide lists the available packages as the Convenience Package on the ES trims, which include "leather-wrapped steering wheel w/radio controls, auxiliary power outlet, wireless cell phone link," and "alloy wheels," while the XLS offers a Sun and Sound Package with the SE's "Rockford Fosgate AM/FM radio w/in-dash 6-disc CD/MP3 changer." The other major package on the XLS is the Luxury Package, which ConsumerGuide says incorporates "leather upholstery, heated front seats, power driver seat, [and] xenon headlights."

Conclusion

The 2008 Mitsubishi Outlander offers everything you could ask for in a $20,000 vehicle as standard equipment, and even more in the form of options.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
