Used Car: 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Review

Review Last Updated: 4/17/15

Reviewers complained about the 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport’s poor-quality interior and underpowered engine, and it doesn't offer much cargo space for a compact SUV.

The 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is ranked:

A four-cylinder engine powers the 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. A manual transmission is standard and an automatic is available. With front-wheel drive and the automatic, the 2013 Outlander Sport gets an EPA-estimated 24/31 mpg city/highway, which is good for the class. Reviewers complained that the Outlander Sport’s engine doesn’t have enough power and that acceleration is slow. Several also reported that the automatic transmission is slow to respond. Test drivers said that the Outlander Sport has a comfortable ride and sharp steering, but most agreed that it isn't especially agile or fun to drive.

Most critics were pleasantly surprised by the size of the 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport’s back seat, which they said is roomy for adults. However, reviewers disliked the Outlander Sport’s interior materials, which they said are hard and cheap-looking. The Outlander Sport has less overall cargo space than many class rivals. Standard features include Bluetooth and a USB port. Features like satellite radio, navigation, a nine-speaker Rockford Fosgate audio system and a rearview camera are available. Test drivers noted that it is easy to pair a phone via Bluetooth, but some found that it can be tricky to make basic audio system adjustments in models with the navigation system.
