Appreciate the Outdoors at the Hawthorne Hill Nature Center

Biggers Mitsubishi is proud to serve the community of Elgin, Illinois. We appreciate all that the city has to offer, especially the Hawthorne Hill Nature Center.

The park began in 1938, as Camp Hawthorne Hills. This camp served the Elgin Girl Scouts for 34 years. In 1977, the City of Elgin purchased the camp and 45 acres west of Brookside Drive. The goal was to preserve the area for future generations. Hawthorne Hill Nature Center opened to the public in 2005 and has been a popular place for locals and visitors ever since.

The Hawthorne Hill Nature Center is the perfect place to learn about nature. The center provides year-round opportunities to explore the natural landscape. When you visit, you can hike one of the many trails or explore the interactive nature center.

There is also a wheelchair-accessible trail leading to a pond and meadow to allow everyone to enjoy the outdoors without limitations. Families and individuals can explore the 67-acre nature area, or take part in one of the many available programs.

We at Biggers Mitsubishi encourage everyone to take the time to learn about nature and appreciate the diversity in ecology and humanity shown through the Hawthorne Hill Nature Center.

Outlander PHEV Design Gets a Facelift

The Outlander PHEV is back and better than ever. The 2016 model will feature a new facelift, adding sporty contours and an aggressive new fascia. Plus, the model will be getting some mechanical upgrades as well.

According to World Car Fans, the Outlander PHEV design will feature the iconic Mitsubishi “dynamic shield” fascia, using extensive chrome. In addition to a new front end, the PHEV will get two-ton 18-inch gloss black wheels, interior cabin upgrades, redesigned seats, and a four-spoke steering wheel.

Under the hood, the 2016 Outlander PHEV, which stands for “Plug-in electric hybrid,” will also get some upgrades. This includes a new hybrid setup to lower friction, an 8% increase in electric range, and better throttle response. A Multi-around view monitor provides added safety as well.

The new model is set to be released sometime in July, although it will only be available in Japan for some time. Mitsubishi has stated that it should hit the US market sometime later this year, although no specific date has been given.
