Choosing the ideal Mitsubishi Outlander trim level involves some investigation, so you can see which one goes with your Oakland, Hayward, and San Francisco, California, lifestyle. Each trim, including ES, SE, SE Launch, SEL, and SEL Launch, contains various features that may benefit you. Hayward Mitsubishi decided to guide you through them, so you’re aware of what you’ll get.
Multiple surfaces can adorn your seating, like the standard fabric in the ES trim. If you’re interested in the SE and SE Launch Edition trims, their seats are covered with synthetic leather suede. For chic leather appointments, choose the SEL trim, and for decadent semi-aniline leather, go with the SEL Launch Edition trim.
Both front and back seats can be equipped with heat. If you want them in the front, the SE through SEL Launch trims feature them. To get the heated rear seats, select the SEL or SEL Launch trims. The dual-zone automatic climate control pops up in the ES through SE Launch trims, while the SEL and SEL Launch trims exclusively carry 3-zone automatic climate control.
An 8-way power adjustable driver seat comes in the SE and SE Launch cars, but to add memory settings, you’ll want to switch to the SEL and SEL Launch trims. Every trim from SE to the SEL Launch includes a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
Behind the wheel, you’ll find a 7-inch multi-information display that shows your remaining gas, speed, and more in the ES and SE trims. An upgraded 12.3-inch digital driver display shows up in the SE Launch through SEL Launch trims and can be selected for the SE trim. The 10.8-inch Head-Up Display, which projects similar information on your windshield, appears as a standard or available feature in the SEL and SEL Launch trims.
The first trim features an 8-inch Smartphone-link Display Audio (SDA) screen, but if you move up to any other trim, you’ll use the 9-inch SDA system with Navigation instead. With these systems, you’ll either get six speakers with the ES, SE, and SEL trims, or the Bose premium sound system with 10 speakers, which is a standard or available feature in the SE trim and above.
To use your phone on board, connect it through Apple CarPlay® in the ES trim, or upgrade to the wireless version in every other trim. Except for the ES trim, you’ll also find the wireless charging device to keep your phone fresh wherever you are.
Most trims can be equipped with either 2-wheel drive (2WD) or the Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) to accompany the 2.5L 4-cylinder engine. With 2WD, the drive mode selector provides five different driving modes, including Tarmac, Gravel, Snow, Normal, and Eco. If you choose S-AWC, it adds Mud to the mix.
While the ES trim gives you cruise control, the SE Launch and SEL Launch trims offer Adaptive Cruise Control. The ES trim provides a rearview camera, too, while the multi-view camera system can be found in the rest of the trims.
If you want a package deal of innovative systems, go for the MI-PILOT Assist™ with Navi-link, standard in the SE and SEL trims. It bundles Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Prevention, and Traffic Sign Recognition for an extra shot of safety.
With the investigation complete, you’ll be closer to one of the Mitsubishi Outlander trim levels that suits you. Before you drive around Oakland, Hayward, and San Francisco, CA, schedule a test drive at Hayward Mitsubishi.
