April 2013 was the best month for Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, as sales increase 77 percent

Article by Christian A., on May 3, 2013

The U.S.-built Outlander Sport experienced an over 77% year-over-year increase in April with 2,111 units sold, according to Mitsubishi Motors North America. This is the third-highest-ever total monthly sales of Outlander Sport. It’s also the eighth straight month of sales increases for the fuel-efficient CUV.

Outlander Sport sales achieved an increase of over 41% year to date. MMNA President & CEO Yoichi Yokozawa said that he is “pleased” with how people have responded to its limited edition Outlander Sport model, which celebrates 30 years of Mitsubishi sales in the U.S. and 25 years of production in Normal, Illinois.

Outlander Sport has a starting MSRP of slightly more than $19,000. Yokozawa thinks that the crossover attracts customers due to its price as well as its high fuel-efficiency and a broad range of standard features.

The Automotive Science Group (ASG) recently gave the "Best All-Around Performance" Award to the Outlander Sport, the top honor that could come from the organization.

This award is given to the model year 2013 crossover SUV sold in the U.S. that had the best overall performance. Lancer sales also increased by nearly 8% for the month compared to the same month the previous year. It has also grown by over 50% year to date.

This sport sedan, which is affordable and which comes with a considerable amount of features, was named as the best overall value in the small sedan vehicle segment by USAA. In April 2013, 127 units of Mitsubishi’s all-electric i-MiEV were sold. In April 2012, just 79 units were sold.

2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a slicker version of the previous models. It’s craftier, sportier, and over-all just a more badass version of its predecessor.

The makeover starts with both the front and rear fascia. The front fascia has retained part of its signature look with its grille opening that is trapezoidal and fog lamp housings that are recessed, but with new chrome trims around the fog lamps, the front fascia appears cleaner and more polished. This is matched by a rear fascia that comes with side sills in black, making the Outlander aesthetically sportier and more athletic.

Despite its apparent strength and athleticism, the 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport takes pride in its fuel efficiency, registering a 31 highway mpg for its EPA fuel mileage. The Outlander Sport also showcases other outstanding features like 18 inch alloy wheels, rear tail lamps powered by LED, Electric Power Steering (EPS) and FUSE Handsfree Link System that give the driver easy access via voice activation to the mobile phone and even an iPod, steering wheel-mounted controls, and shift knob and steering wheel that are impressively wrapped in leather. The versatile 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a cross between an SUV that offers adequate space and a fuel-efficient car, making the Outlander Sport a practical and stylish option for buyers.
