Reviewers say that 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is an affordable compact SUV with a spacious cabin, but how do they feel about its performance and handling. Hi! I am Jim Sharifi with US News Best Cars. In this video we will take a closer look at the Outlander Sports performance.
The Outlander Sport comes with a 2L 4-cylinder engine that produces 148 horsepower. A 5-speed manual transmission comes standard and a continuously variable transmission is optional. The base Outlander Sport gets an EPA estimated 24 miles per gallon in the city and 30 on the highway. With the optional all-wheel drive system these numbers drops slightly to 24 and 29.
Reviewers say the Outlander Sports engine is weak and noisy compared to some rivals engines. They write that the Outlander Sport is slow and struggles to accelerate. Test drivers are also unimpressed with the CVT, noting that it aids fuel economy but does not make the best use of the engines power. On the other hand they agree that the 2014 Outlander Sport performs well enough for a daily driver and a few reviewers note that its compact size makes it easy to maneuver in small spaces. Some test drivers do note though that it isnt particularly agile when cornering at higher speeds.
