Over the years, Mitsubishi has given us some extremely impressive performance offerings. From the mighty V6-powered GTO, to the rally-bred Lancer Evolution, there was no shortage of turbocharged goodness in the line-up.
While you might've drooled over one of these models back in the day, we grow up, things "pop" up, and our priorities change — and that's where Mitsubishi's Outlander Sport comes into the picture.
"The dream of a sports car fades, replaced by the need for the practicality of a people mover, or an SUV. But the new Mitsubishi Outlander Sport reminds us that the family car can still be fun." Sam explains.
Powered by a 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 126kW and 224Nm of torque, the Outlander Sport has the power to feel fun, while achieving a combined fuel efficiency rating of 7.2-litres/100km.
With seven seats, this Outlander possesses enough space for Sam and all the "kids" that manage to fit their collection of holiday equipment in the back.
While describing a car as a "mullet" doesn't sound too flattering, Sam quickly explains that the combination of sleek looks and off-roading ability earns it that questionable badge. So that's a good thing, right?
Thanks to the on-demand four-wheel drive system, a flick of a switch engages the Outlander Sport's system, and power is sent to all four corners, making it "nice and sticky underfoot."
