Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Interior

Reviewers are generally unimpressed with the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport’s subpar cabin materials and bland styling. However, a few say the space is at least comfortable and functional. The Outlander Sport has less cargo space than most other compact SUVs, but automotive writers agree that its cargo hold can still fit a good amount of gear. A few also like that the standard voice-activated FUSE system makes it easy to adjust navigation and audio settings. However, some find the touch-screen radio to be complicated.

  • "Outlander Sport's cabin is roomy up front, but materials quality trails most vehicles in the segment." -- Consumer Guide
  • "The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport's interior doesn't claim to be luxurious, but it is useful and comfortable." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The inside of the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is pretty nondescript, but you get acceptable materials and straightforward gauges and controls." -- Edmunds
  • "The cabin features a rather non-descript design, and, while durable, the materials don't feel upscale." -- Left Lane News

Seating

The 2015 Outlander Sport seats five and comes with cloth seats. Leather upholstery, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and heated front seats are optional. Most reviewers agree that the Outlander Sport’s front seats offer decent comfort and ample head- and legroom. A few say that most drivers won’t have trouble finding a comfortable seating position, but some taller drivers may have limited legroom. The Outlander Sport’s rear seats have enough space for a couple of adults, but are best suited for children, test drivers report.

  • “Front seats are reasonably comfortable, while the rear is snug for three adults but just fine for two." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Up front, average-sized occupants get comfortable seats with a good amount of head- and legroom. The standard tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel makes it possible to fine-tune the driving position, but taller drivers may still feel a bit cramped. The rear seats aren't exactly spacious, but younger teens and smaller adults aren't likely to have any complaints." -- Edmunds
  • "Front seats offer average support. They're comfortable enough, with good leg and head room." -- Consumer Guide
  • "The Outlander Sport's accommodating back seat is a pleasant surprise -- despite this crossover's compact dimensions, adults should have no problem getting comfortable in the second row." -- AutoTrader (2014)

Interior Features

The 2015 Outlander Sport’s standard features include a four-speaker stereo, Mitsubishi’s voice-activated FUSE hands-free system with Bluetooth, a USB port and steering wheel-mounted audio controls. Available features include a 7-inch touch screen with navigation, a 6.1-inch touch-screen audio system, a Rockford-Fosgate nine-speaker stereo system, satellite radio, a rearview camera, push-button start, a panoramic moonroof and automatic climate control.

The Outlander Sport’s dashboard controls are easy to use, reviewers write, though some report that the touch-screen audio system adds extra steps to functions that should be simple. A few test drivers also like that the standard FUSE voice activation system can be used to adjust audio and navigation settings.

  • "Outlander's touch-sreen controls complicate simple functions. We applaud the use of a rotary knob for radio tuning, but bemoan the multiple steps required to flip between AM and FM frequencies." -- Consumer Guide
  • "The deeply hooded tachometer and speedometer feature crisp white backlighting and numerals that are easily read at a glance. The ergonomics are generally good, including both the manual and automatic climate controls." -- AutoTrader (2014)
  • "The controls are within easy reach and simple to use, while Mitsubishi's well-executed Fuse voice activation system makes some audio and navigation functions a hands-free affair." -- Edmunds (2013)

Cargo

With the rear seats in use, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has 21.7 cubic feet of space. With them folded, it has 49.5 cubic feet. Models equipped with a panoramic moonroof or subwoofer have slightly less overall cargo space. Although the Outlander Sport has one of the smallest cargo holds in the class, most reviewers agree that it has plenty of room to accommodate a family’s needs.

  • "Looking at the truncated shape of Outlander Sport from the outside you'd never guess that it has as much rear cargo space as it does-enough for a family's groceries, kids' sporting gear, or weekend getaway luggage. The floor is wide and flat, with tie-downs built into the sides. Plus, there's lots more space available when flipping the 60/40 2nd-row seats, which fold almost flat with no gaps between the seats and the load floor." -- Consumer Guide
  • “To put those measurements in perspective, they're considerably less than what's offered in most other compact crossovers, but more than the pint-sized Nissan Juke." -- Edmunds
