Edminds.com and the pet safety experts at Bark Buckle UP named the Mitsubishi Outlander CUV one of the Top 10 Pet Safe Vehicles. The collaborative effort’s list praises the Outlander for having plenty of room and pet safety features that makes driving with pets safer and more convenient.
There are 71 million pet owners in America, and 82 percent of dogs travel in cars during their lifetime. However, 98 percent of dogs travel unrestrained in moving vehicles, leaving pets and passengers vulnerable to injury in the event of a traffic accident, according to Bark Buckle UP statistics. In a 35 mile per hour collision, an unrestrained 60-pound pet becomes a 2,700-pound projectile and can do much harm to other passengers.
In announcing the Mitsubishi Outlander, Edmunds.com wrote: Side airbags, five-star crash test ratings and steering-wheel-mounted auxiliary controls are all part of the Outlander’s arsenal of available offerings. The CUV also boasts fold-flat seating and stowable third-row seats (both of which increase the amount of room available for larger pets), as well as more than a dozen storage compartments for your gear and your pet’s.
Mitsubishi has been deploying “K-9” teams to dog parks and beaches, offering free treats and foldable travel water bowls. “Pet owners’ responses have been overwhelming,” said Frances Oda, vice president of marketing at Mitsubishi Motors North America. “Owners are appreciative of Mitsubishi’s added attention toward pet safety and comfort, while our furry friends enjoy lapping up fresh, cool water during their playtime.”

Mitsubishi’s Lancer family grows with the mid-lineup Ralliart. Is it a bargain-basement Evo?
As the rally-bred Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution continues to evolve, with escalating levels of power and technology (not to mention base price), it leaves its economy-car origins in the dirt. As the Evo moved up in performance and price, it created a hole in the Lancer lineup, one filled nicely by Subaru‘s Impreza WRX. In the interest of gaining back lost ground, Mitsubishi recently introduced the Lancer Ralliart, a turbocharged, all-wheel-drive sedan that bridges the gap between the Lancer GTS and Evolution X models.
Automobile Magazine recently had a 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution GSR in the fleet. Read what the editors have to say about this rally car for the street.
We’ve always been fans of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. Nothing gets us going like taking an economy car and adding all the go-fast parts imaginable right from the factory. The all-wheel-drive system gives this Evo tons of grip and creates a direct link to the rally cars we love to watch. To find out how our editors like the current generation Evolution on the street, click through the following pages.
Mitsubishi will show a new five-door Lancer at the 2008 Paris show. The Subaru WRX hatch will soon have a proper competitor, in Europe at least.
We were introduced to the Lancer Prototype-S at the 2008 Geneva show. There was no need to guess what the S stood for, as Mitsubishi was upfront about the production Sportback that would follow.
We recently spent some time in the top-spec, non-Evo Lancer, known as the Lancer GTS, to see what relationship it had to its manic sibling.
We love the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. The all-wheel-drive turbocharged rally car for the street grips, steers, and tackles a bumpy road better than many cars costing twice as much. The last-generation Evo–known in Mitsu parlance as Evolutions VII and IX–impressed us with the fact that Mitsubishi had turned the ho-hum base Lancer into such a performance icon. The newest Evo may have lost a little of its raw character, but it’s still clearly an automobile engineered by hardcore enthusiasts for hardcore enthusiasts.
