Mitsubishi Outlander Overview

With its tight, kids-only third-row seat, the Outlander is one of the few small SUVs that provide seating for up to seven people. Effective air-conditioning is one of its only strong points. Otherwise, the Outlander handles clumsily and feels like a larger vehicle. The ride is fairly stiff. The sluggish acceleration is accompanied by raucous engine noise. The loud cabin is dressed in trim that looks cheap and feels insubstantial. Its 23 mpg overall is average for this class but nothing special. Overall, with the array of very good competitors in this class, we see little reason to consider the Outlander.
