The US Kelley Blue Book, an important source of automotive information and car prices, has named the Mitsubishi Motors North America Outlander Sport 5-passenger compact crossover/SUV one of the ten best back-to-school cars of 2014.

According to Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is "one of the most affordable crossovers you can buy" and is also "among the most stylish." KBB.com further remarked that the Outlander Sport "balances a fun demeanor with the peace of mind of a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty."

The 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a perfect choice for novice drivers – the car comes with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive systems, a 5-speed manual or next-generation continuously-variable transmission (CVT) that mimics a precision 7-speed transmission, a new audio trim panel, next generation power steering, insulated materials for less noise and more.

Additional technology features include FUSE Hands-free Link System® with Bluetooth® hands-free phone operation and a plethora of standard safety features includes seven airbags, an anti-lock braking system with Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Brake Assist; Active Stability Control, Traction Control Logic, Hill Start Assist and Mitsubishi Motors' patented Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) safety cell technology that helps to protect the vehicle's occupants by deflecting energy away from the passenger compartment. The vehicle also offers fuel economy of US 32 mpg (7.35 liters per 100 km).

An additional nice feature is that the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport comes with a 5-year/60,000-mile fully-transferable new vehicle limited warranty; 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty; 7-year/100,000-mile anti-corrosion/perforation limited warranty; and 5-year/unlimited miles roadside assistance.

The new vehicle can be yours for just USD 19,595 (destination fee excluded).
