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.
