Why buy an Evo when an STI is available for a good bit less? Why buy an Outlander when a Forester / Rav4 etc... are less? Why buy a mIev at all? ooops, I actually like that one (seriously, huge amount of space inside, I was shocked! (pun almost intended))
I gotta say the Outlander Sport SE is a very nice package. For something in the low 20s MSRP, you get a CVT + AWD with lots of standard features (HID headlights, fog lights, heated front seats, LED tails, full trip computer). Even comes standard with 10 year powertrain warranty but who knows if the company will be around that long.
With the discounts they are offering on brand new 2012 units, you can pick up one of these up for less than $20k easily. Hard to argue the overall package for the money.
