The 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport gains an improved continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) and more sound insulation for a quieter cabin. SE trims gain LED running lights, piano black trim and repositioned seat heater switches.
About Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
In a deep sea of Honda CR-Vs, Toyota RAV4s and Subaru Foresters, the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sportcompact SUV is often overlooked and overshadowed. That’s unfortunate because the Outlander Sport is one efficient, well-equipped and affordable compact-crossover SUV. Base models still offer a manual transmission, and the upper trims come nicely equipped with features like a Rockford Fosgate audio system, leather seating and an advanced all-wheel-drive option. Two 4-cylinder engine choices provide decent power and good fuel economy, and the Outlander Sport’s interior accommodations are right in line with the Ford Escape and Nissan Juke. However, unlike many of its competitors, the Outlander Sport does not have advanced driver assists like autonomous braking, lane-departure warning and adaptive cruise control.
