The Outlander Sport is a chopped version of the small Outlander SUV, with reduced rear-seat and cargo space. The term "Sport" is used loosely here, referring more to size than performance. This is not a fun car to drive. It handles less nimbly than the larger Outlander, and acceleration is adequate at best. A choppy ride and a very noisy cabin further detract from driving fun. Still, even with its diminished dimensions, the Outlander Sport 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 pricey top-trim version, where the Outlander Sport finds itself competing with sportier and roomier SUVs.
