After owning this vehicle for 20 months I love it even more. Going to buy my wife one at the end of this year. I ask people I see with the Mitsubishi sport and every one says the same thing. They love it

Don’t listen to the “expert” reviews

I purchased one for less than 20k out the door total with tax and all. A 2018 outlander sport 2.0 limited edition with awd. The interior is really nice. Seats are comfortable. don’t let a review stop you from a test drive. Go see for yourself. The reviewers saying it’s sooo slow the cvt sucks and it’s just errrr cheap. See what other suvs you can find for under 20k that are awd and not a complete base model... I went to Toyota Honda Nissan Kia ford Chevy dodge Jeep I spent months looking test driving just wasting time... I had a 2012 Ford and contrary to all the reviews who said it’s nice etc etc. the car completely fell apart it creaked clunked and rattled from every panel there was. Not to mention those funky curvy designs the rest of the manufactures have followed make its impossible to clean your interior. Especially in a dusty condition. Now I’ll be that guy and say these have better interior than a lot of the competion it’s simple elegant interior. Unlike most reviewers I love that about it! I don’t want some funky space ship looking interior that I cant find what button does what. The climate control on these period is how it should be standard on all of them in my opinion. Simple nobs with an auto setting and a knob for temperature.... heated seats are standard! I mean common sorry this 20k vehicle doesn’t quite look like your Mercedes’s bens inside that costed 3x that price tag... Really....who’s buying these to do 0-60 times or push performance. I got mine because I needed an efficient comfortable quiet ride that was both safe and reliable and plus that 34mpg highway over what it’s rated for in the first place is outstanding. Coming from a ford owner you couldn’t pay me to take another one. My family owns ford gm dodge jeeps and I’ve seen the insides of all of them I’ve rode in all of them. For what this is with this price it’s unrivaled hands down. Sure go get your ford cause you wanted a refined everything and all that new stuff they don’t know how reliable it’s going to be because it was released to sell. Mitsubishi doesn’t do that. They take something that was already reliable for years and build upon it trying to improve it. Not build a new car to match all the 0-60 times of new cars and all that. Again who buys one of these to go fast. If you want fast go get a Range Rover supercharged for 4x the price tag. Simple reliable safe and fuel Efficient is what I wanted and it’s comfy the steering is perfectly fine and the cvt though it’s my first cvt vehicle i love it. Smooth constant pull to 55mph at 2000 rpm argue with that!!! It indeed has shift points somewhat it really just seems to hold one rpm when accelerating as much as it can unless you let off and as your letting off it feels exactly like it’s shifting. I love it. 5 transmissions in my ford and countless times of getting boned by the stealership. No more! Take a test drive before you let the expert reviewers change ur mind cause they get payed by the competion. You may well just drive one home.

I have owned several Mitsubishi over the years including the horrible rated Mirage which was actually a fun little car to drive. I decided I wanted just a tad more power and room. I got the LE with the 18 inch black rims. This vehicle is a fun ride, has plenty of power, and some perks that are not common for the price. Yes I am aware that it's an "outdated" vehicle according to experts but they have constantly refined the Outlander Sports over the years. I remember what they look and felt like when they first came out and they were basic and cheap. The warranty is one of the longest in the market. The reliability has proven itself on its own by being Mitsubishi's best selling vehicle in the US. The best part is Mitsubishi is cheap for maintenance, and for parts. I also like that I can switch to front wheel drive or All wheel drive anytime, this allows me to save even more gas. My two complaints would be that the back seats leg room is a bit tight, and that yes I love my heated seats but I do not have heated side mirrors, come on Mitsubishi! I got a great sound system, the ride is decent, the seats are comfortable, and I am getting decent MPG. I know I can enjoy this vehicle for 10 years and make my money worth. A new redesign Outlander Sports is coming out 2020, and it looks great, but I got an excellent deal off this one since they need to move the 2018/2019 off the lot. I honestly do not think there going to be much change, more refinement in a new look, with hopefully a more powerful engine to please the mass, even thought I think the 148 HP I have is NOT that bad, especially with the sports mode, and the auto sport manual mode. Tons of techs going on, yet all the professional critics claim they don't. Hmm!

Daily Driver (> 70 miles/Day)

Bought 2018 sport brand new with 8 miles about a month back and put in about 1000 miles on it. Primary use is for Daily drive (70 miles/day) for me and my wife to go back and forth to work. Don't understand, what the paid reviewers are scaring off the public with there reviews. First learn and understand how the performance varies with CVT transmission and automatic. This car has classic Mitsubishi suspension. Gives me about 29 miles per gallon combined. Has 2.4 ltr engine with CVT transmission. What else do you expect from a 2.4 ltrs 4 cylinder and a CVT transmission, takes a couple more seconds to get to the speed, but once you get to the speed, it goes! Would definitely recommend this for daily drivers! FYI, I grew up driving Lancer's, EVO's and Pajero's lol !

First off this isn't my car but my In-laws. They were looking for an all weather small SUV that would be easy to get into, easy to drive and comfortable. My Mother-In Law would be the primary driver as my Father-In-Law has unfortunately not able to drive any more. She reached out to me for suggestions on vehicles. Our family and my wife's family have had primarily Honda products for the last 25 years . However, I had an earlier 2001 Mirage that was a long distance commuter car that I proceeded to put 250k mileage on it in a few years (with zero non scheduled maintenance issues). With That said, The Honda vehicles have been good but we have all had issues with poor Honda driver seats. I had an earlier Outlander Sport as a rental vehicle and came away impressed with the standard features and comfort. My In-laws test drove one and bought one the following week. They love it. Pros: Quiet and comfortable ride. I do not know what the "professional" reviewers are talking about. I have taken this vehicle on several long trips with 4 people aboard. The car is quiet and comfortable. One can easily toggle the shifter to (s) to move it out of ECO setting to Sport if needed. Default setting is fine for the majority of driving. Hwy mileage is usually close to 30mpg The Interior is well laid out and screwed down . Driver's seat comfort is excellent with ample adjustments . Rear seats are fine. The infotainment screen is responsive and easy to use. This particular vehicle has a safety suite of backup camera/ lane assist/forward collision alerts. Interior materials are on par with the competition. (again not sure what the professional reviewers are talking about.). Sight lines are stellar. The warranty is fantastic . The engine/transmissions have been in service for many years so any bugs have already been worked out. (see new CR-V 1.5L Turbo issues for context. Not slamming Honda but sometimes tried and true designs are fine for most buyers) AWD system is excellent with a dedicated "AWD" button on the center console to lock the differential of 50/50 split in really bad conditions. Finally, Value reigns supreme here. Mitsubishi is fighting with the big boys in this segment for your dollars. They offer a lot of features and a great warranty for less than the competition. There are many excellent vehicles in this segment and I feel the Outlander Sport holds its own . Cons: While the Outlander Sport drives well (My review is with the 2.4L/CVT/AWD SEL model). I feel that Toyota's 2.5L is the best standard engine in this class. A little more power or an slightly more aggressive retuning of the CVT would help. Rear storage is on the smaller scale compared to the rest of the segment. That's it really.
