When it comes to giving the people what they want, Mitsubishi knows what it’s doing — and it’s putting up the sales numbers to prove it. In 2018, Mitsubishi sold a whopping 118,074 brand-new vehicles to American drivers, putting it ahead of big-name brands like Land Rover, Lincoln, Volvo, Genesis, Fiat, Smart, and MINI. That means that when asked to vote with their wallets, more Americans chose Mitsubishi than even some luxury stalwarts.
Mitsubishi has been putting out bumper crop after bumper crop of popular crossover models for years. It now offers three crossover models:
Mitsubishi Outlander - The Mitsubishi Outlander is an exceptional choice if you’re looking for a family vehicle. Not only is it stylish, fun to drive, and replete with the latest technologies, but it also earned the 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety with optional Forward Collision Mitigation and LED high- and low-beam headlights.
Mitsubishi Outlander Sport - The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is super stylish, and it only gets more stylish with the Outlander Sport Limited Edition. This aesthetically unique Outlander Sport gets distinct black rims and red contrast stitching on the inside, helping you stand out even more. With the latest connectivity and safety tech, the Outlander Sport is as well-rounded as it gets.
Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross - Named the 2019 Car of the Year by the Automotive Researchers and Journalists’ Conference of Japan and a Good Design Award-winner by the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, the Eclipse Cross is a stylish standout that provides great performance. With available Super All-Wheel Control, the 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is a great choice for individuals who love adventure.
With crossovers like these, it’s easy to see why so many American car buyers made the choice to go with Mitsubishi in 2018. It also helps that every single Mitsubishi crossover sells at a price point starting far below the average price of a new car in the United States, according to Kelley Blue Book.
It’s Not a Mirage
It wasn’t just in the crossover department that Mitsubishi shone in 2018 — sales of the Mitsubishi Mirage were up 8 percent last year as well. Admired for its fuel-sipping qualities (we’re talking up to 43 miles per gallon on the highway) and a plethora of high-tech features like Apple CarPlay™ compatibility, car-buyers flocked to the low-cost, high-reward Mitsubishi Mirage in droves.*
Whether it’s the Mitsubishi Mirage and Mirage G4 or the highly efficient Outlander PHEV, there’s a lot to love about the 2019 Mitsubishi lineup. Get into Mountaineer Mitsubishi and see what all the buzz is about.
