I love being a blogger!  One of the things I absolutely love about blogging is the opportunity I have to review a variety of brand new vehicles.  That’s right – I said BRAND NEW!!!  I recently carpooled with blogging friend Chelsea to BlogHer ’14 in San Jose in the 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE and loved it!

I loved how easy the Outlander was to drive, as well as how comfortable it was – especially on the long drive we had to San Jose.  Some of my favorite features were Heated Seats, Cruise Control and the Rearview Camera System.  I also loved the amount of storage we were able to get.  We fit all our luggage and swag with no problem at all!  All of these items definitely made it enjoyable to be in the car.

  1. Debbie L. says:

    Nope I have never driven a Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE. The safety features are really nice – I have always thought cars needed a knee airbag – it has one!

  2. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says:

    That sounds like a great car. I had one as a rental once and liked it.

  3. A few weeks ago we test drove a lot of cars. This seems like a great car but all these buttons and LED screens and things really drive me bonkers. I just need to drive down the road. LOL. Instead of a 2014 I opted for a 2008 with very low miles. I am just not ready to feel like I am in a space ship.

  4. Pam says:

    That car is really nice looking. It has a ton of space!

  5. That is one awesome looking car! I love all the safety features and all the space!

  6. deb says:

    The Outlander looks like a great car for a road trip. There looks like plenty of room for luggage.

  7. Beautiful little car. I looks really roomy! I’m going to Type A tomorrow, but just hailing UBER to downtown!

  8. Rosey says:

    It sounds like there are a lot of cool perks. I like the rear armrest cup holders. My SUV has them on the floor in the back, and it’s not even sturdy…rendering them so useless, lol

    The Outlander Sport is pretty sharp looking too!

  9. That looks fantastic! I admit, I’m a sucker for all those features that are marketed for females, and this car seems to have all of them πŸ™‚

  10. I really like the paddle shifters. That’s pretty cool!

  11. Bridgette says:

    Now that I have a backup camera, I couldn’t live without it. This car looks amazing!

  12. Marina says:

    What a great vehicle! It certainly has a lot of storage. My favorite feature is the one touch start/stop engine feature.

  13. Liz Mays says:

    I love the heated side view mirrors. No more snow or fog getting in the way of my view.

  14. This Mitsubishi Outlander looks like it would be a great family car for us! There are so many great features.

  15. Camesha says:

    My goodness, there are so many features! I love all of the storage space in there.

  16. Christie says:

    That looks like a very schnazzy vehicle to take to BlogHer! Lots of great features too!

  17. Sorry doll but I am a born and raised New Yorker, I do not have a driver’s License and do not drive! The most interesting thing about cars is me listening to tunes and playing I Spy! LOL πŸ™‚

    How was BlogHer 2014? I usually only goes when it’s here in NYC and I wasn’t too thrilled with the last one which is why I didn’t make this years a big priority.

  18. I haven’t driven this before, but I know I’d enjoy it. I drive something similar. Glad you had a great experience.

  19. Jenn says:

    This looks like a great car! Roomy and souped up! Sweet ride!

  20. Stacie says:

    Now those heated side mirrors…. right there is a love feature for cold weather dwellers!

  21. Melinda says:

    we drove this car. I loved the sound system the most

  22. What a great looking car. Looks like it has some great features.

  23. Veronica says:

    That is a great looking car. I once owned a Mitsubishi. the trunk is very spacious

  24. Tracey says:

    This looks like a great car. I would love to review something like this!!

  25. Lisa says:

    The Outlander Sport Se looks awesome! I need roomy with a family.

  26. This sounds like such a great opportunity. The fact ya’ll get to test it out for even an entire day or longer would be great because ….well as a mom you need to know if it fits your lifestyle. I have 5 kids I would have to know if all my kids would fit and be roomy enough. For a smaller family this would be a perfect car, especially if you are traveling or any of them are in sports. I do like that it shows you which door is left open.

  27. I love this car! One of my favorite features is its eco drive mode. I like to know that I’m getting the best fuel efficiency possible.

  28. This looks like a amazing car. The 5.1β€³ Touch Screen Display would be easy to read. The safety measures built into the car are a reassuring feature. I would love to test drive one.

  29. Jeanine says:

    I’ve heard some great things about the Outlander! It’s not big enough for our family but looks like a wonderful car I would love to drive’

  30. This looks like it would be a good car for traveling and a bigger family. If I could drive, I would have fun testing out the cars.

  31. SUV’s are to big for me, but this 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander, looks like a great vehicle!

  32. MommaDJane says:

    Driver Knee Airbag… I have no idea if my vehicle has that. I love the color too!

  33. Kristin says:

    Nothing better then a nice looking care with great safty features. If i was looking into a new car i would definitely add this to my list.

  34. Lara says:

    AWESOME car! I have always wanted the heated seats feature. πŸ™‚ Enjoy your trip!

  35. kristin says:

    Looks like a great car with plenty of space! What fun that you got to hang out with a friend on your trip!! Great review Shannon!!

  36. Angela says:

    this car looks AWESOME, I love seat warmers!!!

    Looks like a great car! Tons of room in the back! That is what we need!
