2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV GT S – AWC

I will be the first to admit I don’t know enough about PHEV  ( A plug – in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) to speak from experience or answer any questions. However, I do know a functional, good looking SUV when I see and drive one.
The 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander has so many standard features, no extra cash for cool stuff, I was amazed.  I hope you take a look at the video to see how it was the perfect trick or treat vehicle to follow the grand kids around the neighborhood.  Three rows of seating was needed for my crew; and roomy it was to accommodate the Halloween costumes they were wearing.  The little ones got tired after 6 houses and wanted to sit in the Outlander to rest their tired legs and count their kit kat bars.   They acted like they were in their living room resting their 4 and 5-year old bones.
This vehicle has been listed as one of the least expensive SUV’s on the market with all the bells and whistles and in its category. For so many reasons I would take a look and a test drive since you get 74 MPG with electricity and Gasoline and 25 mpg with Gasoline only.  All Electric range 22 – 25 miles.
  The most outstanding feature for me was the quilted side panels on the interior doors and the quilted seats. All easy to clean and I know that first hand because some of the chocolate melted on the seats once the kids got out …  wiping it off was so easy.
You will find that there are no tricks and all treats with the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV …..
