Mitsubishi Outlander

If you have a huge family and are concerned about your spending, the Mitsubishi Outlander 2015 is the car for you. Compared to the previous models, the car may not be that sporty, but if your budget is tight, it is still a good choice.

The 2015 Outlander has been specifically designed for big families. Featuring three rows in the cabin, the car offers a comfortable fit. It may lack design, but the performance is still acceptable and efficiency has also been improved.

Interior and Exterior

Unlike the previous models, the design of the 2015 Outlander is less bold and features a modified front end. The resultant vehicle is less sportier looking simple and modest, and the same can be said for the interior.

While the outside design may not impress all of you, the inside still will. The interior of the Mitsubishi Outlander 2015 is above par in nearly every aspect, when you compare it with other crossovers. There are three rows of seats, which allow seven people to fit in comfortably in addition to the driver. There is plenty of headroom for all rows, and the first and second rows also enjoy good leg space. The third row is not so roomy, but then don't forget that the Outlander is definitely one of the one of the most compact vehicles that we have ever seen when you consider three row cars. The seats can be folded flat, whereas the seats in the second row can also be slid to fine tune the leg room. As for the driving seat, it is in a great position, featuring a tilt/telescopic steering.

While the cabin is compact yet roomy, it does not have a luxurious touch, and features average quality materials.

Performance

The Mitsubishi Outlander 2015 offers a good drive and nimble handling, which has been achieved by reducing structural weight. A higher tensile steel has been used for the body, and the car has also been made slickly faster than other previous models.

The standard model features a four cylinder engine, specified by 2.4 liter and 166 horsepower. In the GT models, the engine has been improved to V6 with 224 horsepower.

What You Will Like

  • The versatility offered in the cargo space
  • The car has three rows of seats, and still looks compact
  • The fuel economy of the city is quite impressive
  • There are plenty of safety features on board

What You Will Not Like

  • Bluetooth is an optional feature, and not a standard in all models

2015_mitsubishi_Lancer

Mitsubishi Lancer

Mitsubishi is one of the most reputed names in the automotive world, and their Lancer car is one of the best that you can ever get, especially if budget is a concern. The Lancer 2015 has plenty of technological features on board; the only thing is that they fall a bit short of being incredible. Still, they do serve the purpose quite well. And don't forget that with a Lancer 2015, you are getting a vehicle which delivers performance and is super easy to handle. This is probably the best part that we like about the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer.

Lancer 2015 has a sporty, sophisticated look, but you may not find the interior to be that great. The drive in the car is super comfortable and super great, thanks to the turbocharged engine and the all wheel drive.

New Features In The 2015 Model

Mitsubishi has introduced some new features in the base models as well as the Value Pack trim. In all the models, the mirrors are now power heated and have a built-in indicator system. For the SE models, the front bumper has received a sportier look whereas as the dashboard now incorporates a FUSE hands free Bluetooth system. The ES model has been loaded with the Value Pack, which features an advanced infotainment system and higher quality interior materials. As for the GT models, there is now a sunroof, HID lamps and an upgraded Rockford Fosgate sound system.

The Design

The exterior of the lancer is attractive and bold, and does garner attention, as it always has ever since the car was introduced. There is plenty if space on the inside, thanks to the clever cabin dimensions. But when you take a closer look at the inside, you might be a little disappointed. From far off, the panel appears to be elegant and sophisticated, but upon a closer look, the plastic materials will not really impressive you.

Bit once again, remember the way the Lance performs on the road, and the interior will not bother you so much.

On Road Performance

As already mentioned, the best thing about the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer are the performance on the road and the nimble handling. The Lancer offers a responsive, neat and comfortable driving experience with precise steering. The car may tend to produce a noise, but you will love the fact that it obeys your every command.

The Engine

The ES model of the 2015 Lancer features a four cylinder engine, delivering 152 horsepower and having a fuel capacity of 2 liters. Move up to the Lancer GT model, and you will get an engine that delivers 168 horsepower and has fuel capacity of 2.4 liter. Obviously, the GT model offers more power. If you opt for CT, you also get a magnesium steering wheel paddle.

Nissan_Altima_2014

Nissan Altima

The 2014 Nissan Altima boasts of a number of innovations in many aspects, when you compare it with the previous models. These improvements have put the car in the mainstream, and have made it a safe pick for many buyers. We really liked the exterior design and the features on board, but what we did not find so impressive was the fact that the car is available in just the continuously variable transmission mode; there are no other variants in any of the trims.

Among the most notable features of the 2014 Altima are the infotainment system, improved powertrains and extremely comfortable seats. The car offers a good balance between handling and comfort, while addressing all the weaknesses which were found in the previous models.

Design

Nissan has completely renovated the design of the 2014 Altima and have given it a brand new shape, not seen in previous models. According to the manufacturers, they have been able to achieve this by considering the design from an emotional perspective, and then manufacturing the car with the latest techniques available. The result is a brand new, attractive body.

The front of the Altima 2014 is similar to the angles and arrows, seen in other Nissan cars, but the rear end does show some innovation. The manner in which the fenders have been made to swell out is also similar to Nissan Juke.

Interior

The interior of the Altima 2014 features several innovations which are usually not seen in a Nissan car. Straight lines divide the control panel from the driver seat and the passenger seat. There is plenty of space on the left side for a bigger LCD screen and an advanced infotainment system. The seats are quite comfortable and will remain that way even if the drive lasts for a couple of hours.

In the base mode, the front seats can be adjusted in six different ways for the driver and four directions for the passenger. An optional power driver and heated seats are also available. Leather seats are also available as an additional option.

Performance

The performance of the Nissan Altima is glossy on every type of road. The drive offers a substantial amount of control, but you can upgrade the suspension to Sachs shocks if you want even more control and a luxurious experience.

What you will like

  • Some of the best safety features have been put on board
  • The flowing, sleek design
  • The infotainment system has been enhanced significantly in this versions

What you may not like

  • All models come with a continuously variable transmission or CVT mode; there is no other option
  • Despite the cool exterior design, the interior design is somewhat dull
  • Previous models feature better and sportier handling than the 2014 Nissan Altima

The 2014 Nissan 370Z has an elegant design, featuring a soft top and sleek shell. The front has been cleverly styled into the form of an impressive nose, which sweeps up to form the windshield and the cabin, and then ends into a snub and bluff rear. Nissan has given this car the proportions of a cabin rearward classic Z edition and a modern wide track sports coupe. The exterior design somewhat limits the visibility in the Coupe and the roadster versions.

The fuel economy is rated at 18 mpg for the city and 26 mpg for the highway in models with manual transmission. If you opt for an automatic transmission mode, the fuel economy increases by 1 mpg.

Performance

The base model of the 2014 Nissan 370Z delivers an above par performance, especially when you opt for the manual transmission mode with rev matching. The acceleration is brisk, and you enjoy plenty of grip as you drive the car. The chassis has been well balanced, allowing you to interact more with the car.
