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 decent for this class but is nothing special. We see little reason to consider an Outlander, given the many better competitors. It also received a low score in our Owner Satisfaction Survey. The 2016 model comes with new styling, upgraded suspension and a new CVT. Also new will be available forward-collision mitigation, lane-departure warning, and adaptive cruise control.
