Freshened for 2020, this shortened version of the 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 versions can get expensive enough that the Outlander Sport starts to compete with better SUVs. Updates for 2020 include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and added advanced safety equipment.
