2016 Mitsubishi Outlander SE vs. 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander SEL

On an already high-quality crossover SUV like the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander, small improvements can make a big difference. That's part of what makes the introduction of the SEL trim for the 2016 model year so exciting. Ranking above the slightly advanced SE and below the premium GT trims, the SEL hits that sweet spot between affordability and serious advantages. But what exactly are the differences between the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander SE vs. 2016 Mitsubishi SEL? Let's break it down.

The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander SE is slightly more advanced than the base trim. It comes standard with foglights, side mirrors with built-in turn signals, keyless ignition and entry, advanced driver and passenger climate control options, a rear view camera and a 6.1 inch touchscreen integrated into the audio system, none of which are available on the basic ES trim. Option for the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander SE trim adds a number of attractive visual and comfort features, like black interior trim and roof rails, leather seating and a power-adjustable driver's seat. Moving up to the SEL trim also allows even better customization of the Mitsubishi Outlander for personal preference and safety.

The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander SEL has available premium add-ons

When it comes to upgrades, the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander SEL really shines. Some of the technology and safety options that were previously only available on the Outlander's highest GT trim are customization options on the SEL. With the Premium package, customers can add a subroof, power liftgate, satellite radio and an advanced Rockford Fosgate audio system to their vehicle. The Advanced Safety Package offers options like adaptive cruise control with lane departure and forward collision warnings, automatic headlights and wipers, and automatic breaking in certain situations.

The SE and SEL trims on the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander come with the same engine for identical power and torque and both use the same efficient continuously variable automatic transmission. However, when comparing the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander SE vs. 2016 Mitsubishi SEL it's easy to see that the SEL is more technologically advanced and has more custom options.
