Likable, Value-Minded and Worth a Look

Arguably one of the most attractive compact SUVs you can buy, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport offers eye-catching looks that have been updated for 2016, 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. The interior has also been revamped for 2016, with new styling and more available features.

Driving It

"It's comfortable behind the wheel, with supportive seats, and the small size and big windows give the driver excellent visibility. The 2.4-liter engine offers good power, and the continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) received an upgrade last year to give it a more natural and less buzzy driving experience."
