This past week we were test driving the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander, and what better way to test drive than to go on a little road trip? We decided to pack up the car and take the kids down to the Toledo Zoo. We have been wanting to check it out for some time – and I am so glad that we did! We were able to fit SO much into the vehicle – two strollers, a cooler, two kids (with two big car seats), two of us, and had plenty of room to spare! The car had three rows of seating so we just put the third row down to accommodate all of our stuff.

The zoo was absolutely amazing. Unlike most exhibits at the Detroit Zoo, we were able to get up close and personal with many of the animals. For example, the only thing between us and a Polar Bear was glass. It was absolutely incredible to be able to get so close. We loved the Arctic section so much – it was so amazing to watch the seals dance through the water – they were so graceful and so large! We sat as they swam right in front of us!


Wyatt’s favorite part was definitely the fountain – he LOVES throwing coins into fountains. He thinks it’s the coolest thing ever, so of course we had to stop at every one to throw in some change.

I loved the gardens, they were so incredibly beautiful! And there were so many roses that the air was sweet. Being able to get close to a Rhino was also pretty cool, it was almost too good to be true. I could see every wrinkle, every spec of dirt, everything. You really experience these animals in a whole new way when you’re this close.


In total we walked around 2 1/2 miles around the Zoo, checking everything out along the way. We will definitely be going back to see all of the animals soon – it was just too much fun!


The boys were so sleepy when we exited the zoo (they had both stayed awake the entire time), so when we loaded back up the Outlander and got to driving they both fell asleep. The car was so comfortable and roomy – no one was cramped and we were all able to kick back and enjoy the ride.


I would definitely recommend the Mitsubishi Outlander for any family looking for a comfortable ride and lots of storage space! I love that there are three rows of seating – because if you’re like us and have huge car seats – no one else can even fit in the car! So having that third row is just so convenient. 

Would you drive this car?
