It’s no secret that Mitsubishi has shifted its focus in two solid directions: electrification and crossovers. The reasoning for electrification is easy enough; it reduces money spent on fuel and reduces our reliance on oil. But why crossovers? Because Mitsubishi understands the market need for these versatile, efficient, safe, and stylish vehicles.
The current Mitsubishi crossover lineup includes the 2019 Outlander PHEV, 2019 Outlander, 2019 Eclipse Cross, and 2019 Outlander Sport, which are available at Tom Hodges Mitsubishi.
Here are just a few reasons to buy a crossover:
Crossovers have the body styling and—to some degree—the capability similar to the larger SUVs from which they descended, yet their fuel economy is much greater. Crossovers are efficient vehicles, meaning a smaller carbon footprint and fewer trips to the gas station.
Crossovers are more spacious than sedans; the larger ones even offer third-row seating. And with flexible seating, you can optimize the space for your needs—whether they be for more passenger space or more cargo space.
Crossovers are built on either four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive platforms, making them well suited not to just driving in adverse conditions like rain and snow but also performing off-road. And thanks to heightened ground clearance and special off-roading packages, crossovers are the perfect way to experience adventure off the beaten path.
Crossovers regularly earn top safety scores from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Most crossovers are available with a wide range of advanced driver-assist safety features that actively prevent accidents. Some Mitsubishi safety systems available on its crossovers include Adaptive Cruise Control, the Multi View Camera System, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Warning and Lane Change Assist, Lane Departure Warning, LED Auto High Beam Headlights, and Forward Collision Mitigation.
