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, 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, with new styling and more available features, including standard automatic climate control for 2017.

Driving It

"It gets really good gas mileage thanks to a pair of efficient 4-cylinder engine options and an even better CVT automatic transmission. While not nearly as lively in the corners as the Mazda CX-5 or Kia Sportage, the Outlander Sport is still a very competent compact SUV, especially when equipped with the optional all-wheel-drive (AWD) system."
