The base 2010 Mitsubishi Outlander ES model has the four-cylinder and keeps it simple, though it includes air conditioning, keyless entry, and a 140-watt, six-speaker sound system. At the top of the lineup, the luxurious XLS picks up fog lamps, steering-wheel audio controls, remote start, cruise control, and automatic climate control, plus the new FUSE hands-free link system, controlling audio and calling functions with voice commands.
The new Outlander GT includes, along with other appearance extras, rain-sensing wipers, heated mirrors, leather seats, bi-xenon HID headlamps, and a more powerful 710-watt Rockford Fosgate premium sound system with nine speakers and a huge 10-inch subwoofer. "Continuing the active personality are its staple LED taillights, sleek roof rack, and available HID headlamps and 18-in alloy wheels," notes Motor Trend of the GT. Pointing to the features in the GT, Kelley Blue Book says, "This long list of standard and available goodies remains our favorite Outlander advantage."
The only major option is the $3,000 Premium Navigation and Leather Package, which adds a power driver’s seat, heated front seats, leather upholstery, a rearview camera system, and a 40GB hard-drive nav system with music server, real-time traffic, and carpool lane guidance.
Although we'd like to see the new FUSE Bluetooth interface available across the entire model line, the 2010 Mitsubishi Outlander offers a wide range of features to satisfy tech-savvy folks or those who just want the basics.
