Reasons as to why Ugandans buy the Mitsubishi Outlander

The Outlander’s cargo area is big, with a large loading aperture and a one-piece, upwards opening tailgate. Driving pleasure ranks behind practicality, comfort and light off-roading ability in many sports utility vehicles, and this is also the case in the Outlander.
