Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

Performance is underwhelming. The 2.0-liter engine, with 148 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque, with the 5-speed manual or CVT, is too loud and too slow. It can’t keep up with traffic, around town or on the freeway, and especially on long mountain grades.

The 2.4 liter that makes 168 hp and 168 lb-ft isn’t quick either.

However, the Outlander Sport handles well for a crossover its size. The body is well controlled, and the electric power steering is dialed in.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

Outlander Sport’s tall-wagon profile is relatively interesting. It tries to avoid slab sides with a rising character line that reaches from the front wheel arch to the back of the rear doors. From some angles, it looks sporty; from others, a little bulbous. The standard 18-inch wheels add presence.

The front end, new for 2016 and called Dynamic Shield, widens the grille and lower air intake with body-colored panels on the bumper that spread from the center, dividing dark inlets. There’s some chrome thrown in the mix at the fascia, a faux skidplate at the bottom, and round foglamps. LED running laps live in the headlamp units that sweep back from the corners of the fenders. So there’s a lot to look at.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

If the sheetmetal holds its own, the interior drops the ball. It’s flat, black, and uninteresting. It makes it clear why the Outlander Sport costs less. The materials aren’t of the same quality as competitors. The dash lacks styling and the buttons have a budget feel.

The seats are also beneath the standards of rivals, fairly flat.

It’s better with cargo than passengers, having a low loading floor and more than 20 cubic feet behind the rear seat. With the 60/40 rear seats folded, it holds 50 cubic feet; that’s impressive considering it’s actually a bit smaller on the outside than some rivals. And a pass-through in the rear seat can fit skis or two-by-fours, while still allowing two passengers.

Rearward visibility is generally good despite thick rear roof pillars.


New Car Test Drive

Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is primarily a price decision. It trails the class in acceleration performance, and its interior is drab. It is a decent-sized SUV with a reliable engine and a good warranty.
