The Active Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year Awards Competition, held annually by Carspondent.com, named the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander the SUV with the best value on the road.
The ALV competition took place in late October over two days at the San Marcos Golf Resort in Chandler, Arizona. Designed to evaluate cars suited to drivers living “active lifestyles” such as SUVs and off-roaders and recognize the best of these segments, the ALV awards draw on the expertise of the local area media in Phoenix, the Phoenix Automotive Press Association, and enthusiasts from the Phoenix area.
The first day of the competition invites media to evaluate the cars, while enthusiasts come the second day. The jurors test drive the vehicles on multiple types of terrain and on regular pavement to test their capabilities before ultimately choosing the best vehicles in several different categories.
The new Mitsubishi Outlander was given the best value award because of its affordable price paired with a variety of enhancement options like all-wheel drive.
