Mitsubishi’s eclectic range of vehicles offers many choices, all of which are great for driving in the Edmontonian climate. Everything else just depends on what you need out of your vehicle; how much space do you need? Which one has the best fuel efficiency? How much do you value technology? Luckily, West Side Mitsubishi has the answers for you below. Take a look at each of these Mitsubishi models to see which one is the best fit for your lifestyle.
For those looking for an entry-level crossover, with the size and power of an SUV and the sleek shape of a sports coupe, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is a great choice. On the performance side, the Eclipse Cross lets you drive and conquer Alberta roads with the Super All-Wheel Control system, complete with multiple driving modes for snow, gravel, and more. As well, it’s powered by an ample 1.5L direct-injection 4-cylinder engine that’s one of the most fuel-efficient in its class, with up to 9.6 L/100 km consumption in the city and 8.9 L/100 km on the highway.
If you’re still looking for an SUV, but are concerned with lowering your carbon footprint and saving money at the pump, then the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is your best choice. This vehicle, in particular, earns the distinction of being named Canada’s best-selling plug-in hybrid electric SUV—and with good reason! The Outlander PHEV is also the only plug-in hybrid electric vehicle with 100% EV 4WD capability, perfect for trudging through the Edmontonian winters. Much like its advanced electric drivetrain, the Outlander PHEV also comes packed with several safety technologies such as Blind Spot Warning, Lane Change Assist, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
Drivers looking for both power and efficiency in a crossover vehicle at a lower cost will fair greatly with the Mitsubishi RVR. Initially built as a compact vehicle in 1991, the RVR slowly evolved into a more versatile compact SUV that’s perfect for both daily commutes and weekend adventures. With its maximum cargo capacity of up to 1,402L, the possibilities for everyday use are almost endless! Additionally, the RVR comes packed with the excellent All-Wheel Control (AWC) system for maximum terrain control, as well as a Smartphone Audio System that gives you access to Apple Music, your contacts, text messages, and more.
With all this talk about compact crossovers and SUVs, there’s still one more vehicle for those looking to travel lighter, and in smaller spaces; enter the Mitsubishi Mirage. This formidable hatchback offers more than its small design might suggest, bringing lots of style and versatility in the process. One of its biggest selling points is that it only has a fuel consumption rate of 6.4 L/100km in the city and 5.5 L/100km on the highway, making it one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles in its class.
