2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport: Don't Stop The Music

May 24, 2011

The Sirius subscription in our Outlander Sport hasn't been renewed yet (it will be soon), following the end of our free three-month trial. Without satellite radio, it feels like something's missing in the Sport. And this, of course, underlines the fact that a crossover like this is mostly about the music. It was designed to essentially be a boom box on four wheels. And I guess that's not necessarily a bad thing.

With no Sirius to distract me, I paid more attention to the Sport's performance -- or lack thereof. Hit the gas and the crossover whines loudly as it takes its own sweet time getting up to speed. So yes, acceleration is still s-l-o-o-o-o-w.

Oh well. At least I can still amuse myself with the car's real-time traffic. No fee for that subscription; it's free on all Sports equipped with nav systems.
