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.
