The most notable new option for 2018 is a Touring Package that matches key driver-assist features like forward collision mitigation, lane departure warning and automatic high beams. The Outlander Sport also comes with a panoramic roof, rear-view camera and a host of NVH improvements that make for a smoother, quieter ride. No changes have been made to its 4-cylinder MIVEC engine choices, with a 2.0-liter version  packing 148-horsepower and uplevel 2.4-liter engine marking 168 horsepower.
