Buyer's Guide: 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

By Editors on December 3, 2014 9:28 AM

A Long Shot Worth a Look

Arguably one of the most attractive compact SUVs you can buy, the Outlander Sport offers attractive sheetmetal, adequate underpinnings and a quasi-competitive price, hampered by a small dealer network that makes it harder to find than any of its competitors. But it matches its stylish sheetmetal with attractive pricing and some appealing amenities, making it a uniquely viable alternative for some.

Driving It

"While flat-out acceleration isn't the Outlander Sport's trump card, its impressive handling is. Things get even better when equipped with Mitsubishi's all-wheel-drive system that includes an all-wheel-control "auto" mode for enhanced grip on dry pavement and a lock mode for snow or light off-road adventuring."

Mitsubishi provides a strong value proposition with the Outlander Sport, offering an impressive complement of equipment for roughly $20,000. Check all the option boxes -- including a $4,900 Touring Package -- and you'll roll out the dealer's door with an MSRP of over $29K.

Consumer Reviews

Not unlike most vehicles at popular price points, consumer reviews are mixed. A Mitsubishi fan suggested the following. "The vehicle was a terrific deal...loaded with options that result in much more expensive pricing on other vehicles. I paid just over $20,000 for mine with the incentives that were being offered."

More Compact SUVs
