Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Overview

This shortened version of the small Outlander SUV has reduced rear-seat and cargo space. Despite the name, it's not exactly a sporty SUV to drive. Handling isn't that nimble, and acceleration from the 148-hp, 2.0-liter engine is just adequate. The Sport's choppy ride and very noisy cabin further undermine the driving experience. Still, it retains the previous Outlander's high seating position and some of its passenger-and-cargo versatility. Top-trim all-wheel drive versions can get expensive enough where the Outlander Sport starts to compete with sportier, roomier, and better SUVs. Reliability has been impressive but it scored too low in our tests to recommend.
