2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport: Hey, No One Mentioned This!

January 06, 2011

I am evidently the last Edmunds editor to find out that our new long-term 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a great, big glass roof. Usually, I don't like the idea of paying for such extravagances, but I am a sucker for Mitsu's Rockford-Fosgate sound systems (one of which is bundled with the roof in the $1,800 Premium package), so I guess I'd be making an exception here.

And indeed the roof serves its intended purpose. It opens up would otherwise be just another dank small, dim, grayscale cabin and blurs the psychological line between the compact Outlander Sport and the medium-size Outlander.

Alas, the cabin noise level is notably higher in the Sport than in the Outlander Sr. I could blame the roof, I suppose, but I'd guess the Sport also has less insulation throughout its body, along with one of the segment's noisier four-cylinder engines.
