Mitsubishi Outlander Sport


Current Model
This shortened version of the previous generation Outlander has less rear-seat room and cargo space. Despite the name, when it comes to driving it's not exactly a sporty SUV.
Handling is mundane, and acceleration is just adequate. In addition to the 2.0-liter engine, a more powerful 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is available. The Sport's choppy ride and very noisy cabin further detract from the driving experience. Still, it has a commanding seating position, as well as passenger and cargo versatility. Top-trim all-wheel-drive Outlander Sports are priced like many larger, more capable SUVs. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility are standard. Updates for 2021 include standard FCW and city-speed AEB with pedestrian detection.
2015-2020
2015 Redesign Year
A more powerful 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine arrived for 2015 for this shortened version of the Outlander SUV. It 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 has a commanding seating position and passenger and cargo versatility. Top-trim all-wheel-drive versions can get expensive enough that the Outlander Sport starts to compete with better SUVs.

2011 Redesign Year
The Outlander Sport is a chopped version of the small Outlander SUV, with reduced rear-seat and cargo space. Despite the suffix, this is not a fun car to drive.
It handles less nimbly than the larger Outlander, and acceleration from the 148-hp, 2.0-liter engine is adequate at best. A choppy ride and a very noisy cabin further undermine the experience. Still, it retains the high seating position and some of the passenger-and-cargo versatility of its larger brand-mate. All-wheel drive comes only with the top-trim version, where the Outlander Sport poorly competes price-wise with sportier and roomier SUVs.
