Mitsubishi Outlander

Some interesting trends have been at play in the new Mitsubishi world.  Since late 2015, Mitsubishi’s evolution in the U.S. was said to be moving toward a domination of crossovers and electric powertrains.

Mitsubishi Motors Corp. will fortify its fragile U.S. rebound with three electrified crossovers over the next few years, a bolstered regulatory listening post in Washington, D.C., and a new advanced technology office in Silicon Valley. Mitsubishi has stated that the Japanese carmaker will channel limited resources into a more compact lineup after closing its only U.S. assembly plant.

Mitsubishi is a strong contender in the SUVs and four-wheel drive market and that is why they've decided to focus on those as core models for the U.S. market. It just makes sense as a company that Mitsubishi should allocate more resources to the areas where they have a strong share of the market, and are very popular in the U.S.

That likely means no new sedan to succeed the aging Lancer and no dedicated electric vehicle to replace the subcompact i-MiEV.

Arriving toward the end of 2017 is a new crossover that will occupy a relatively tight spot between the more compact Outlander Sport and the midsize Outlander. Mitsubishi says this new crossover will have coupe-like styling and will be powered by either a conventional gas-powered engine or a plug-in hybrid system. The Mitusbishi eX that debuted at the 2015 Tokyo auto show was a likely a strong hint of what to expect for the new crossover.

Next up will be a redesigned Outlander expected to launch shortly after the all-new crossover model. Mitsubishi has delayed the U.S. launch of its Outlander plug-in hybrid, but says that model will finally arrive sometime next year, along with the sedan version of the subcompact Mirage.

Further down the line we’ll see the next-generation Outlander Sport, which is slated to arrive in the U.S. by 2019. That model will be offered with an optional all-electric powertrain, which will effectively replace the soon-to-be-discontinued i-MiEV as Mitsubishi’s EV model.

To keep the nameplates fresh until their full-model changes, Mitsubishi will roll out "big minor changes," such as the retooled Outlander Sport and face-lifted Mirage subcompact hatchback unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show last November.

Mitsubishi also will launch the Outlander PHEV, the plug-in hybrid version of the nameplate's current generation, in the U.S. in the middle of next year.

The other three coming crossovers will get electrified drivetrains as variants to the standard gasoline versions.

The redesigned Outlander and new crossover will get plug-in hybrid variants, while the Outlander Sport will go all-electric alongside its traditional gasoline model.

 

The Outlander and Mirage lineup overhauls come at the same time Mitsubishi is repositioning its crossover focus shift, an area which accounts for 58 percent of its U.S. volume. Its U.S. sales climbed 25 percent to 80,683 vehicles through October, thanks largely to booming crossover demand. Refocusing on crossovers will help Mitsubishi prioritize investments and cut costs and continue to improve and strengthen its current models.

 GMC Terrain

A compact SUV that could almost be considered a midsize, the Terrain comes through with a large cargo area and a roomy backseat. For 2016, some trims have added a new grille with stacked frames, and also redesigned the textured grille of Denali trims.

Exterior & Styling

The Terrain is related to the Chevrolet Equinox, but the Terrain has a good, rugged look and helps the little SUV appear bigger than it really is. Terrain is bigger than similar compact SUVs such as the Kia Sportage, Toyota RAV4 and Subaru Forester but it’s not by a large margin so you’ll be able to fit in same parking spaces!

On the highway, you notice the V-6’s power in a good way. You can cruise at higher speeds without the engine making as much noise as the competitors. The competition seem to be unable to match the hushed experience of the Terrain, which also exhibits limited wind noise.

Overall, the Terrain is a very comfortable car on the highway. In addition to the hushed cabin, the ride is among the best - easily superior to the smaller vehicles in the class. 

The GMC Terrain Denali with the V-6 and all-wheel drive rated an estimated 16/23/18 mpg city/highway/combined. The Terrain is also available as a V-6 with two-wheel drive (17/24/20 mpg city/highway/combined) and with a four-cylinder engine. The four-cylinder models get 22/32/26 mpg with front-wheel drive and 20/29/23 mpg with the all-wheel drive.

Interior

The Denali trim level includes standard leather seats and leather-appointed door inserts as well as some wood-trim accents. The wood trim is subtle and suits the Terrain well. The seats draw particular praise for their comfort from many reviewers.

Interior room is another area where the Terrain shines: Up front, the center console is large enough to be a valuable storage area, but not so large that it cramps the occupants. But the real winner in the cab is probably the backseat features. There’s enough room to sit back there comfortably, even if you are tall and the occupant sitting in front of you has their seat fully slid back. The backseats both recline and slide forward and back. The Terrain rear seats have been named the most comfortable in the class by many reviewers. 

Cargo & Storage

The Terrain has a very large, very useful cargo area. It’s at a good level that won’t cause too much stress and strain on shorter people. It is not as high off the ground as many similar vehicles and manages to be both wide and deep. There’s plenty of room to pack a lot of stuff for a weekend or week-long camping trip!

Cabin storage is good, with four cupholders up front; that deep, wide center console bin and a nice-sized cubby underneath the multimedia system that you’ll find yourself using consistently it’s so handy.

Safety

The 2016 GMC Terrain received the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s highest rating of good in its crash tests.

A backup camera is standard, and there is an optional rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot warning and forward collision warning that kicks in at speeds greater than 25 mph.

Jeep Renegade

The subcompact SUV segment that the Renegade is part of is relatively new, but it's quickly gaining popularity as automakers look for new ways to appeal to car buyers who are more interested in SUVs and crossovers than traditional cars and sedans.

The Renegade has retained the style of a traditional SUV. It also retained a lot of the off-road capability which hasn’t been the case with other manufacturers. Jeep is one of the few brands that can pull this off and it is very successful with the Renegade. And there’s also a version of the Renegade for you whether you need a small SUV for everyday driving or for leaving the road far behind.

The Trailhawk model, for example, delivers big-time off-road performance without sacrificing on-road driving refinement.

Exterior & Styling

With its round headlights and seven-slot grille, there's no mistaking the Renegade for anything but a Jeep. The Renegade's upright, boxy shape allows the automaker to maintain more interior room even while slimming the SUV's small footprint.

The Trailhawk has a number of unique elements designed for off-road driving: It gets an extra 0.8 inches of ground clearance, for a total of 8.7 inches, along with front and rear tow hooks that are rated at twice the Renegade's gross vehicle weight in case you need to be yanked out of a ditch or pull someone else out. There are also skid plates for the front suspension, transmission, transfer case and gas tank, as well as different lower front trim that provides a better approach angle.

The little details that Jeep and other Chrysler models have been giving their cars lately are very attractive, and the Renegade is no exception. From the small seven-slot grille icon integrated into the headlights to the military-style "No Step" warning on the side sills have a certain amount of charm.

Ride quality is firm, but suspension responses are refined.

The Renegade features frequency selective damping struts from Koni, a Jeep first. Body roll is well controlled; the Renegade retains balance and firm grip even when navigating sharp, winding roads. The Renegade shows splendid poise on the highway, without any of the fading that some cars with this shorter wheelbase exhibit.

The Renegade's quiet cabin is extraordinary. Even with the SUV's boxy shape, wind noise is faint at highway speeds.

The Renegade offers a choice of two drivetrains, the base 160-horsepower, turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder is a smooth-revving, refined engine that teams exclusively with a six-speed manual transmission. The light-effort clutch pedal and precise manual shifter are fun and give the driver a sporty feel.

Cargo & Storage

The cargo area measures 18.5 cubic feet. With the rear seats folded there's 50.8 cubic feet of cargo space. A removable, height-adjustable cargo-floor panel is standard.

Safety

 

A number of advanced safety features are optional. The Safety and Security Package includes a blind spot warning system with rear cross-traffic alert, while the Advanced Technology Package adds lane departure warning and prevention, forward collision warning with automatic braking, and rear parking sensors. A backup camera is also optional.

Buick Verano
The Buick Verano takes design cues from the Enclave, LaCrosse and Regal models which include traditional portholes, a black chrome waterfall grille, blue translucent projector beam headlamps, premium wheels and chrome accents. The Verano has a sporty profile that's complemented by standard 17 inch multi-spoke forged alloy sterling silver-finish wheels.  Available exterior colors include Black, Olympic White, Cyber Gray Metallic, Claret Red Tintcoat, White Diamond Tricoat, Switchblade Silver Metallic and Mocha Bronze Metallic.

Verano is the quietest compact sedan available in its class, it’s even quieter than many midsize and full size cars. Features designed to produce “Quiet tuning” include acoustical laminated glass, refined chassis dynamics, triple door seals and even special forged alloy wheels.

The Verano's premium-accented exterior is enhanced with an interior marked by exceptional seat comfort and support and premium soft-touch materials. The ambient lighting from the LaCrosse has made it's way into the Verano, creating a very inviting environment. Seating surfaces are available in both leatherette/fabric and leather. Neutral and medium titanian colors are options for leatherette/fabric and cashmere, ebony and Choccachino are options for leather. The leather available in the Verano is the same high quality leather as Buick's top of the line model, LaCrosse.

You will find a few more features to make your driving experience a superior one, check out: front and rear reading lamps, heated steering wheel with integrated radio controls, push button start, heated leather seats, sliding console armrest that locks, express up and down front windows, dual zone climate control and electronic parking brake. With the remote start feature you can warm up your seats and steering wheel for extra warmth before you get in!

The next-generation radio includes a navigation system, along with USB and auxiliary input jacks, Bluetooth with streaming audio, speech recognition, SMS texting and more. Additional connectivity features include text-to-speech conversion of SMS texts, smart phone app integration and Gracenote music organization for external devices including Playlist Plus and Album Art features.

If you're concerned about safety inside the Buick Verano, you're protected by a strong, unitized body structure which uses 60% high-strength steel in key locations to increase strength and crash protection. This is used to help prevent intrusion into the passenger compartment.  Things like ten standard air bags, touch screen navigation, advanced connectivity by OnStar and next-generation radio are rare for cars in this class. The ten standard airbags include frontal, head curtain side air bags, front and outboard rear seat side impact air bags and knee air bags as well. The head curtain airbags only deploy during a rollover. A collapsible pedal system allows the pedals to detach during a crash to reduce the possibility of leg and/or ankle injuries. OnStar has an automatic crash response system as well.
