No other compensation was received. All opinions are 100% my own. Thank you.[/dropshadowbox]Thanks to my friends at DriveShop and Mitsubishi, I got to cross a BIG item off of my bucket list by cruising down part of the Pacific Coast Highway in a 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport! Not only that, but I was lucky enough to have this beautiful, economical, sporty and extremely comfortable car during my weekend mom-cation to California!
I have always wanted to cruise down the PCH. I kid you not. I even have a PCH playlist! Well, I finally got to and it was just as awesome as I imagined, mountains on one side and the glorious Pacific on the other!
We picked up our candy apple red 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport in Los Angeles and drove it down to our hotel in Santa Ana. One of the first things we noticed was how comfortable, luxurious and spacious the interior was.
We also love the ample cargo space for our bags and cooler.
Hearing my PCH playlist blasting through the Rockford Fosgate sound system was pretty sweet!

We drove from La to Santa Ana, from Santa Ana to Newport Beach (several times), from Santa Ana to Laguna Beach and from Santa Ana back to LA all on less than one tank of gas, so the gas mileage is INCREDIBLE!
I am already a Mitsubishi fan and owner, so I highly suggest that you #driveMistubishi if you get the chance, because they are amazing vehicles!
I also highly suggest that you drive down the Pacific Coast Highway at some point in your life, because it is truly gorgeous!!!!
