Advantages of Choosing a Crossover of SUV
There is no denying Americans love crossovers and SUVs. So much so, that many automakers are planning to stop producing most sedan models. While you might think larger SUVs and crossovers are less fuel efficient than smaller car and can be a big waste of money, there are actually a lot of advantage to driving one. Here are five of those.
Lots of interior space. If you have a large family, you need something that can carry everyone. There’s no point in getting something smaller if not everyone can fit. The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander comes standard with three rows of seats, so there is plenty of room for everyone.
Cargo Volume. When you don’t need to carry people, but do have a lot of stuff to haul, you can fit a lot more in an SUV. The Outlander offers 10.3 cubic feet behind its third row. Fold down both the second and third rows and this expands to 63.3 cubic feet.
Good fuel economy. Modern engine technology has made most SUVs and crossover nearly as fuel efficient as smaller cars. If you are looking to combine maximum versatility with fuel efficiency, the Outlander achieves an EPA-estimated 30 mpg on the highway.* There is even the Outlander PHEV that offers up to 22 miles of pure electric driving.
Safety. If are in a head-on collision with another vehicle, the smaller vehicle will always come out worse. While we’re not saying you need to buy the biggest possible vehicle you can, driving something like the Outlander can give you more a bit more safety than a compact sedan.
Capabilities. If you think you will ever need to tow anything, a crossover or SUV is a much better choice than a sedan. When properly equipped, the Outlander can tow up to 3,500 pounds. Most sedans top out near 1,000 to 2,000 pounds.
