2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Ratings & Reliability
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.

Mitsubishi Outlander Sport 2014
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.
