Mitsubishi redesigned the Outlander Sport for 2011, but can it go toe-to-toe against the more established sport ute – the Nissan Rogue?

    @Steve — What is an RVR? Aaron is driving an Outlander Sport. CarReview recently tested the Outlander Sport and the crossover in the video looks just like the car we reviewed.

    I would just like to point out that your comparison is wrong, the one driver is not driving an outlander he is driving an RVR. good job guys.
