- The “sport” aspect of this crossover stands out with a nice, tight suspension
- The panoramic roof spans an impressive length of the roof, providing sunlight to both the front and back seats.
- The Outlander Sport boasts a nice stance, looking like it’s prepared for virtually any conditions with aesthetic cues from the iconic Evolution line of rally bred street cars
- Underwhelming power – rated at 143hp, but not until 6000rpm.
- The Outlander Sport seems to be plagued by hard plastics and bland designs giving it a cheap interior feel
- Raked rear window and tiny cargo space limits usable volume
“One day. Two Crossovers. Five Guinness World Records.”
I admit to being fully intrigued the first time I saw the commercial for the new Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. Clearly Mitsubishi was having fun with this marketing campaign, but the underlying message that I heard was that this is going to be an exciting, sporty, compact SUV that packs enough performance to make the driving experience stimulating.
