Outdated and outclassed, the Outlander struggles to compete. Its high point is a standard tiny third-row seat, rare in this class. Though the ride is absorbent, it is also buoyant and doesn't feel tied down. Handling is clumsy, with slow steering response and lots of body lean in corners. The base 166-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder is mated to a CVT that amplifies the engine's howl when you ask for power. Acceleration is leisurely at 10 seconds from 0 to 60 mph, though its 24 mpg overall is competitive. Top-tier GT trims get a 224-hp, 3.0-liter V6 and six-speed automatic. Forward-collision warning and lane-departure warning are available on some trims. The upcoming plug-in hybrid will cost more than $40,000.
