With its unique looks, pleasant handling characteristics and roomy, user-friendly interior, Mitsubishi's compact SUV has no trouble winning over its share of fans.

What's new for 2005

The Outlander now offers a manual transmission on the base LS model. A new Limited trim line debuts, and all models feature slightly revised rear styling. Standard equipment enhancements on all Outlanders include advanced airbags and four-wheel disc brakes. Leather-trimmed seats are standard on the Limited, and both the XLS and Limited ride on 17-inch alloy wheels.
