This shortened version of the Outlander SUV 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. A more powerful 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is new for 2015. The Sport's choppy ride and very noisy cabin further undermine the driving experience.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"I got the smaller engine (4 cilinder) & I wish I would have gotten the 6 cylinder because I was used to the pick up of our previous car on accelerating into traffic on the freeways."

JENNIFER P., MN (2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport)

"Plenty of everyday power, almost surprising from 2.0 engine. Just as good as my previous V6 Acura for nearly all conditions. The CVT 8 transmission is great, smooth and efficient."

RICHARD L., SD (2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Great driving position. Love the flap fold tailgate. Lots of room inside."

RICHARD L., SD (2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport)

"The car doesn't have enough room inside for my liking. I can't ride in the car with the windows down, especially at hi way speed, it hurts my ears."

CINDY J., MN (2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport)

"Climate controls difficult to use and to adjust. Always too cold and uncomfortable. Only issue I have with this car. Great stereo system!"

PETE O., NJ (2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport)

"very comfortable seats for long trips, vehicles cools down fast."

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
