Vehicle Review: 2018 Mitsubushi Outlander Sport 2.0 LE - Disneyland Foodie Tour

This is the first time I have reviewed the Mitsubishi Outlander in nearly three years, so I was excited to get back behind the wheel of one again. Let's take a look at the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport! There are updated front and rear bumpers, LED running lights and a new rear skid plate and reflectors.

This week I took friends from Northern California through The Disneyland Resort for a Foodie Adventure!

We started the Foodie Adventure in Disney California Adventure in Cars Land! This is the kids waffle meal that comes with two Cars character waffles, two strips of turkey bacon, three pieces of fresh fruit and your choice of a kid's fruit juice or orange juice box! A perfect way to start the day! Plus, you cannot beat this view!

At Disneyland it's ok to have dessert before a meal! Here we have some of the red raspberry macaron, black forest cupcake, flourless cake and a Matterhorn macaron.

Now this is a secret menu item from Rancho Del Zocalo in Frontierland. If you are going to order this massive burrito just ask for The Zocalo burrito or the eveything burrito! Literally everything on the assembly line is in this burrito! Every meat option and all the fixings go into this monster and it is $12.99 and can easily feed several people!

After a full day of literally eating our way around the parks, it was time to take a comfy seat and head on home!

I love the 18-inch alloy wheels!

Today's Disneyland adventure takes us into a galaxy far, far away! Here is part of the Star Wars Land model located in the Star Wars Launch Bay. The rest of it is in Florida at Walt Disney World.

I made friends with the infamous bounty hunter Boba Fett.

I have never wanted a balloon so much in my life! This BB-8 balloon is the best thing ever!

I actually debated on how many BB-8 balloons I could fit back here!

The displays are well lit and easy to read. The Sport 2.0 LE comes with a 7 inch Smartphone Link display that is both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible and a rearview camera. Other interior changes include a redesigned center console and a new shift lever. You also get 4-speaker stereo and automatic climate control.

A new day and another day at Disneyland for more food! Here is a selection of my favorite skewers from the Bengal BBQ in Adventureland! This is one of my favorite places for a quick snack! You have the Banyan Beef, the Bengal Beef, the Chieftain Chicken and two pork belly skewers!

The pork belly skewer is a seasonal item and I hope it stays because it was amazing and worthy of a closer photo! It literally is like a lettuce wrap and I could have had a few more!

And what else than a dole whip or two for dessert? And did you know that at The Disneyland Hotel Coffeehouse they have spiked dole whip floats? You can get them there with either coconut rum or dark spiced rum!

At the end of the week everyone was thankful for large comfy seats in the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

This Outlander Sport comes with a 2.0-Liter 4-cylinder engine with 148 hp. While it gets 26 MPG combined, 23 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway, it doesn't provide the type of power you would expect from an SUV. At times it feels painfully slow.

There are some great safety features including automated emergency braking, lane departure warning and automatic high-beam headlamps. But I am sad to see that there isn't any blind-spot monitor or rear cross-traffic monitor that are found on many similar SUVs I have reviewed.

Compared with its competitors the Outlander's main appeal is the cheaper price point as long as the bells and whistles are not as important to you. The changes for 2018 are not a huge but keeps the model relevant and remains an appealing all around crosssover.
