One of the year’s busiest times was last week when I had important errands to run, and everyone counted on me. Thank goodness I was given a loaner vehicle to test drive. I had the opportunity to drive this 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander SE S-AWC for a week at no charge.
2019 Mitsubishi Outlander SE S-AWC
My important errands consisted of getting a last-minute gift for my son’s birthday, going to dr appointments, basketball practice, Pancakes with Santa, and Christmas shopping to do…all rolled up in this one week. To top that, I ended the week driving to a Christmas party with the girls. I’m sure I left out something. Small but mighty is what I say about this Mitsubishi Outlander. I could get my errands done in no time by whipping in and out of parking spaces like no other.
Eco Mode Mitsubishi Outlander
One of my favorite features of this SUV is putting the vehicle in Eco mode with the Eco-Drive Mode switch. I kept it that way all week. Not sure why you wouldn’t.
The Eco Mode option activates energy-saving measures that reduce engine power on initial acceleration and helps the air conditioning system use a balanced amount of energy.
And, to a mom who takes her child to school every morning, my 2nd favorite feature (and a must) is the heated front seat. Though it doesn’t get too cold here in north Texas as in some parts of the world, it’s still a sweet feature to have in the winter months. Besides that, I’ve been known to turn it on in the summer months, too, to help ease my backaches!
Fuel Economy – 26 Combined city/hwy 24 City / 29 highway – 3.8 gallons per 100 miles – Annual fuel cost $1,450
It’s a small SUV, but it seats seven passengers and has plenty of room for everyone. When the back seats are down, there’s also plenty of room for your groceries and your holiday shopping items!

One thing I would change on the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander
I’d rather see (below photo) the speed limit I am going to instead of the drive mode the car is in. I kept looking there to see how fast or slow I was going. I think most vehicles I drive are where you can immediately look at the speed you are going.
2019 Mitsubishi Outlander SUV
I ended the week driving the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander to my 11th Annual Girl’s Christmas Party. We even got to celebrate these kid’s birthdays with a cake and a song. That was very special to me because that boy is mine! His new friend is the host’s daughter. Their birthdays are two days apart.
A couple of years ago, I had the opportunity to drive a 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander SEL S-AWC Eco Mode for a week, which has become one of my most popular posts of all time. It’s worth checking out if the Mitsubishi Outlander is your kind of vehicle.
