3 Used Mitsubishi Vehicles to Buy in St. Cloud, MN
If you enjoy traveling around the country with your friends or family, you need a vehicle that can handle your journeys. While many adventure-ready vehicles cost an arm and a leg, Mitsubishi has a fantastic lineup of capable and affordable models. And if you choose to buy used, these models are even more budget-friendly.
Why buy used?
Pre-owned vehicles have many advantages, with the obvious one being that they cost less than their new counterparts. A used model not only has a lower price but also saves you money on taxes and auto insurance. This is because new cars lose much of their value as soon as they leave the dealership. So, once they make it to the dealer’s used lot, they cost less and depreciate much slower — something you’ll appreciate when you sell your used car later down the line.
Used models nowadays are also more reliable than they once were. And if you’re still concerned about the safety of a specific model, you can read all about its past maintenance and repairs in its vehicle history report. Better yet, consider a Certified Pre-Owned Mitsubishi, which must have less than 60,000 miles on the odometer, be under five years old, and pass a 123-point inspection. These models also come with a vehicle history report as well as the remaining of the 10-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty that the original owner received.
1. Outlander Sport
When it comes to choosing the right used model for your road trips, the Outlander Sport is a smart pick. This compact SUV has plenty of space for up to five occupants to stay comfortable for the long haul. And its flexible cargo space means you can easily fit all of your luggage, sports gear, and even a pet kennel inside.
Available infotainment technologies keep you connected while driving the Outlander Sport in remote areas. Plus, an abundance of safety systems like Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Mitigation with pedestrian detection provides peace of mind when your family is along for the ride.
2. Eclipse Cross
The Eclipse Cross is similar to the Outlander Sport in that it is also plenty spacious for a family of five. However, it has a sportier look inside and out, making it stand out on your adventures. Plus, if anything doesn’t fit inside the compact SUV, you can tow it in a trailer using the available towing package.
The model’s available Smartphone-link Display Audio system also makes for more enjoyable road trips, and the available Navigation system ensures you can find your way on the open road. And since you’re buying used, you may be able to afford a higher trim with these technologies and other conveniences like heated seats and dual-zone automatic climate control, whereas you may have only been able to choose the base trim with fewer amenities when buying new.
3. Mirage G4
If you’re mainly interested in taking solo trips or weekend getaways with your partner, the Mirage G4 is a great pick. This sedan has a fantastic turning radius and a subcompact size that makes it easy to navigate narrow mountain roads or packed city streets. Despite its smaller stature, the Mirage G4 still has a spacious trunk and a rear sear pass-through for longer items like skis or oars.
With smartphone compatibility, Bluetooth® technology, and driver-assist features, the Mirage G4 is just as high-tech as the other Mitsubishi models. In addition, it is notably fuel-efficient, so you can traverse lots of terrain before needing to stop at a gas station.
