Mitsubishi Outlander and Outlander Sport Named Best Vehicles for Teens

Best vehicles for teens

Whether you’re gifting your teen a car or they’re working for it, used cars are always a good option for a teen driver to save some money on bills. So when you consider a used car, you’ll want the most affordable and safest: the Mitsubishi Outlander and Outlander Sport.

Part of what makes Outlanders some of the best vehicles for teens is their low price tag. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety only considers the most affordable cars to be named to the “best choices” list for teens. To be considered, vehicles on this list have to be under $20,000. They also must come with a quality base engine, have a bigger size, and come (standard) with electronic stability control.

Both Outlanders checked off all of these requirements. The used Outlander and Outlander Sport typically come in under $11,000. That makes them affordable for teens and parents. But that’s not all. Both vehicles also have plenty of safety. They earned high safety ratings from IIHS and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

“Mitsubishi Motors prides itself on consistently delivering top safety features at an affordable price to ensure our customers receive the best possible value,” said Don Swearingen, executive vice president and chief operating officer, MMNA

So if you’re looking for an affordable, reliable car for your teen, come down to Heritage Mitsubishi!

Mitsubishi Mirage Earns KBB’s Most Affordable Award

Most Affordable Award

Kelley Blue Book is venerated as one of the most renowned and reputable sources of vehicle information in the business for both buyers and sellers, and as a result, it’s responsible for bestowing a number of honors and awards on automakers and models every year. One of these awards is a spot on the annual “10 Most Affordable New Cars” list. For 2017, the Mitsubishi Mirage secured itself a spot on the list, earning a Most Affordable Award from the prestigious organization.

In order to determine which models make the shortlist, KBB.com looks closely at what they feel not only offers car buyers the most bang for their buck, but also how well each nameplate holds value over a period of 5 years. Insurance and gas costs as well as depreciation all factor into KBB’s 5-Year Cost to Own. After looking at a variety of different vehicles, the Mitsubishi Mirage and Mirage G4 both made the list of Most Affordable New Cars thanks to features like great fuel economy and some of the best powertrain and new vehicles warranties in the industry. Additionally, available upgrades like Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and a Rockford-Fosgate sound system add to the appeal.

Come to Heritage Mitsubishi to check out the winners of the “Most Affordable” Award today – the 2017 Mirage and Mirage G4.
