Mitsubishi is trying to push its way onto your shopping list by virtue of the Outlander's standard third-row seat (rare among small SUVs), its temptingly low base price, and some big discounts on the showroom floor. That might make the Outlander seem like a lot of car for the money, but don't be fooled. This is not a competitive model.

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

"V6 engine is strong. Yet it gets good fuel economy."

Mike G., VA (2016 Mitsubishi Outlander)

"Adequate acceleration for the vehicle and engine size, very good handling and a joy to drive."

Louis V., MA (2016 Mitsubishi Outlander)

"My 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander GT handles incredibly, and acceleration is quick and responsive. In early spring, with ice under the bridges, I avoided a serious collision with a vehicle that lost control and veered sideways right in front of me. At 65 MPH, I steered a hard left, and then immediately a hard right, and avoided him without a scratch! Other cars collided with him behind me, but my Outlander stayed the course. The Super All Wheel Control definitely did its job!"

Craig D., MN (2016 Mitsubishi Outlander)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Smooth ride, good comfort level for long trips."

Roger H., SD (2016 Mitsubishi Outlander)

"More road noise than expected. Rougher ride than expected."

Richard M., LA (2016 Mitsubishi Outlander)

"Front driver seat could be a little more comfortable, a little softer and have lumbar support. Pretty quite cabin with a smooth ride."

Louis V., MA (2016 Mitsubishi Outlander)

Value

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"4WD, 7 seats, leather for under $25K"

Anonymous, LA (2016 Mitsubishi Outlander)

"Outstanding warranty, although I've had zero problems. Lots of safety features, lots of "value" options for the price. All wheel control for the winter. Great value for the money, highly recommend."

Roger H., SD (2016 Mitsubishi Outlander)

"In my mind, the value of the Mitsubishi was better than the Honda CRV. I thought that the seats were slightly better in the Outlander as well as the radio controls."

Richard K., IL (2016 Mitsubishi Outlander)

"Like all Mitsubishi products the Outlander GT is an outstanding value"

William D., PA (2016 Mitsubishi Outlander)

"Great features and capabilities for the price. Will tow what I need easily."

Mike G., VA (2016 Mitsubishi Outlander)

"Very high in options for the cost"

Dennis B., CO (2016 Mitsubishi Outlander)

"outstanding value in terms of equipment and fuel economy"

William D., PA (2016 Mitsubishi Outlander)

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.
