Which Outlander does Edmunds recommend?

While you might be drawn to the Outlander because of its low introductory price, consider getting the top-of-the-line GT if you can. It's the only way you can get the V6 engine, which is preferable over the four-cylinder engine. You also get all-wheel drive, leather seats, LED headlights and a Rockford Fosgate audio system. The optional Touring package would be a good addition for its adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation and lane departure warning systems.

Edmunds' Expert Review

  • Generous list of standard features
  • Standard three-row seating
  • Slow, noisy acceleration with the base four-cylinder
  • Thirsty V6 is available only on the top-of-the-line GT
  • Third-row seat is pretty small
  • Limited Mitsubishi dealer network
  • Refreshed styling including new headlights
  • Improved ride quality and quieter cabin
  • New rear-seat climate control vents
  • Part of the third Outlander generation introduced for 2014

Overall rating

6.6 / 10

The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander is one of the least expensive SUVs you can buy with a third-row seat. It also comes with an appealing set of features and offers an optional V6 engine. So far, so good, right? But if you research this Mitsubishi more closely you'll realize that it comes up a bit short.

For one, the Outlander isn't particularly rewarding to drive. The base four-cylinder engine is underpowered and noisy. You can get that V6, but fuel economy is poor, and it's only available on the most expensive trim level. And as for that third-row seat, well, it's small, even for children.

If you need a three-row crossover on a budget, the Outlander might be worth a look. But in one of the most hotly contested segments, just about every manufacturer is making a competitive crossover, and most of them are more refined. We recommend shopping around before settling on the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander.

Notably, we picked the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander as one of Edmunds' Best 3-Row SUVs for 2020.

2019 Mitsubishi Outlander models

The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander is a seven-passenger crossover SUV that comes in five  different trim levels: ES, SE, LE, SEL and GT.

The base engine in the Outlander is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine (166 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque) paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is optional.

Standard features for the ES include 18-inch alloy wheels, LED running lights and taillights, heated mirrors, rear privacy glass, cruise control, dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, second-row air vents, a 60/40-split folding second-row seat that slides and reclines, a 50/50-split third-row seat, a rearview camera, voice controls, Bluetooth connectivity, and a six-speaker sound system with a 7-inch touchscreen display and a USB port.

Stepping up to the SE gets you foglights, keyless ignition and entry, power-adjustable front passenger seats, heated front seats, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, a second-row USB port, and an upgraded audio system with satellite radio. The SE also has an optional Convenience package that includes a sunroof, power-folding side mirrors, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

The Outlander's LE is equipped similarly to the SE but has the contents of the Convenience package as standard and gains black-painted wheels plus a few other blackout trim pieces.

The SEL starts with the SE's content and the Convenience package plus automatic headlights, automatic wipers, a power liftgate, leather upholstery, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

The SEL also has some optional equipment that you can't get on lower trim levels. The Premium package adds LED headlights and foglights, a sunroof, a heated steering wheel, a 360-degree parking camera system, and a nine-speaker Rockford Fosgate audio system. The SEL Touring package includes the Premium package contents plus automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, a forward collision warning system with automatic braking, and a lane departure warning system.

The GT comes standard with all of the above options except the advanced safety technologies, all of which are included in the optional GT Touring package. Exclusive standard features on the GT include a 3.0-liter V6 (224 hp, 215 lb-ft) paired with a conventional six-speed automatic, all-wheel drive, chrome exterior beltline accents and steering-wheel shift paddles.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the Mitsubishi Outlander SEL w/Touring package (2.4L inline-4 | CVT automatic | AWD).

Driving6.5
Comfort6.5
Interior6.5
Utility7.0
Technology7.0

Driving

6.5
There's not much to like here. The standard four-cylinder engine is underpowered, and handling is unremarkable. Even the brakes require a deft foot to bring the vehicle to a complete stop, which makes for a clunky braking experience.

Acceleration

5.5
Acceleration is lethargic, even with the gas pedal pinned to the floor. Overtaking another car on the freeway requires a lot of planning. In Edmunds testing, the Outlander managed a 0-60 mph time of 9.6 seconds, making it one of the slowest crossover SUVs in its class.

Braking

6.5
The brake pedal is light and spongy but with decent bite at the top of the stroke, so you don't have to press it far before the brakes start clamping. On the other hand, force buildup is low, making it necessary to push further than expected to come to a complete stop. Maximum braking performance is decent, however. In our test, the Outlander needed 126 feet to stop from 60 mph, which is typical for a three-row small crossover.

Drivability

7.0
Throttle response is intuitive in typical driving situations. But when you ask for extra oomph, the Outlander's CVT automatic introduces annoying simulated gear shifts that fall well below the 6,500 rpm redline at full throttle.

Comfort

6.5
Except in specific situations, the Outlander offers a smooth ride over most roads. The first- and second-row seats are fairly uncomfortable, partially owing to the lack of available adjustments. Most SUVs in the class are good at isolating outside noise and engine vibration but not the Outlander.

Seat comfort

5.5
Seat comfort can be hit-or-miss. Disappointingly, the Outlander does not offer lumbar adjustment. The second-row seats have oddly shaped headrests that can make your body feel bowed.

Ride comfort

7.5
The Outlander has the most comfortable ride of any car in Mitsubishi's lineup. Even on rough roads, the Outlander feels pretty composed. The only exception is when hitting midcorner bumps; they send a big shock through the cabin, and it feels like you lose traction.

Noise & vibration

5.5
At idle, the engine sends vibrations into the cabin, which you can feel through the seats. Engine noise is quiet while cruising, but it's groany and noisy while accelerating. Tire noise is mostly muted, except when you drive over bumps.

Climate control

7.0
The standard dual-zone climate system works well and does not require any adjustments once set. The rear air vents (located behind the center console) keep a good supply of air pumping to the second and third rows. Neither the heated steering wheel nor heated front seats get truly hot.

Interior

6.5
Getting into the Outlander can be tricky for adults — especially the driver — but once you're seated, the cabin feels roomy enough. The driving position is uncomfortably high, and the seat bottom doesn't angle up much. Visibility is fantastic all around, however.

Ease of use

5.5
The touchscreen system has large square tiles on the homepage that are easy to press, but every other menu has wide rectangles that are sometimes hard to hit accurately. The driver information display has a strange one-button control scheme that isn't very intuitive. Other controls are within the driver's reach, though some of the driving aids are grouped nonintuitively throughout the cabin.

Getting in/getting out

6.5
The high seat and low-mounted wheel make it a little difficult to get into the driver's seat without having to squirm around the steering column. The lowered roof height above the second row (a result of the sunroof's mechanical bits) requires ducking a bit as you come into the car. The opening provided by sliding the second-row seat forward is wide enough for kids to access the third row easily.

Driving position

5.0
Even when the seat is dropped as far as it will go, the driver sits up quite high. The seat's lack of adjustments and the forward-tilted headrests make it difficult to find an ideal position. The wheel has a good range of motion, but its low positioning means that even when it's tilted all the way up, it feels as if you're driving a school bus.

Roominess

7.0
Headroom in the first and second rows is sufficient, but tall occupants will find the Outlander more confining than rivals. Tall rear-seat passengers will have to scoot the seat all the way back to avoid brushing the headliner. There's good legroom in the front and second rows, but the third row is very tight. On longer trips, it's for kids only.

Visibility

8.5
A low hoodline and beltline, along with narrow pillars and wide windows, make it easy to see forward and to the side. The large three-quarters window reduces blind spots. The rear window could be taller, but it's not bad.

Quality

5.5
The quality of materials up front is pretty standard for the class, though the design isn't particularly attractive. Lots of little things contribute to an overall feeling of cheapness. The second-row seat bottoms fold up to allow for a flat second row but are held in place by flimsy little arms. You have to line up the arms exactly to return the seat bottom to its original place. You can feel the engine vibrate in the front seats, and they rock back in their frames if you lean back.

Utility

7.0
As with other compact three-row crossovers, cargo space behind the third row is meager. The seats fold flat for usable space, but that space is still a few cubic feet smaller than average. Though the Outlander is designed with families in mind, there aren't many places to put toys, bags or anything else.

Small-item storage

6.5
There's not much storage up front. Mitsubishi gives you just two central cupholders and a small bin under the armrest. There are large front door pockets, with room for an upright water bottle and a few small knickknacks. The second-row door pockets are decently sized, with room for two water bottles standing up. Overall, it's not a ton of storage spots for growing families, but at least everyone will be hydrated.

Cargo space

7.0
The load floor behind the rear seats is narrow, and not all of its 30.4 cubic feet is usable. But the rear seats fold completely flat to open up a decent amount of space. There's no real liftover, making for an easy-to-use space aside from the intrusions behind the back seat.

Child safety seat accommodation

7.5
The car-seat anchor points are stuck down between the cushions and placed at an unusually steep angle, making them harder to access. However, the high rear seat means less bending over to situate kids, and there's plenty of space for even larger seats.

Technology

7.0
We like the optional Rockford Fosgate sound system, and every model but the base ES comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Its two USB ports aren't sufficient for seven people, though. Many driver aids are available but only at the top trim levels. It's surprisingly hard to hear incoming phone calls at highway speeds.

Audio & navigation

8.0
The Rockford Fosgate system is quite good, with little distortion even with the volume maxed out. With a little fine-tuning (the system offers unique profiles depending on music type), the subwoofer delivers a good punch. You won't hear much reverb unless you stress the system. Onboard nav is not offered, which means you'll want Apple CarPlay or Android Auto to mirror your smartphone's navigation apps.

Smartphone integration

7.0
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard on all models except the base-level ES. There's a single USB data port below the center console, hidden beneath a clumsily designed flap. In back a charge-only USB port is located below the second-row air vents. A seven-passenger vehicle needs more.

Driver aids

6.5
The Outlander has most of the advanced safety features that others in the class offer, but the majority are only available on the top two trims as part of option packages. We like that the lane departure warning system isn't overly sensitive, but the adaptive cruise control system doesn't look far enough ahead at highway speeds. Approaching stopped traffic requires driver intervention.

Voice control

6.0
The Outlander has enough natural speech detection that the system could understand us even when we didn't follow the prompts. Unfortunately, there are a lot of steps and confirmations for even simple tasks like making a phone call. You can switch radio bands via voice, but you can't select a station. Phone calls are muffled even at max volume, and the audio sounds like it comes from one side of the car through one speaker. It's quite hard to hear calls at highway speeds.

Our third Outlander
TomW,11/24/2018
GT 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
As the title says the new 2019 GT we have is our 3rd Outlander. We can not see paying any more for one of the names that are ranked higher in the polls. I have owned Porsches and other high end cars in my life but feel the Outlander is as well put together as any car that I have owned. The warranty is the best in the industry and I have only had 4 recalls for all four cars for minor issues. Never for anything like brakes or transmissions or motor issues. At 6'3" and 250 I need a car that is comfortable and the Outlander offers the adjustments to allow me to do so. The leather heated seats on the GT are very comfortable. My wife and I take a twice a year trip from NC to IA and back, 1700 miles roundtrip each time. Very much like the fuel economy, right now after less than a 1000 miles are seeing 25-26 mpg on short trips, combination of country road and highway. Can't wait for some long runs on a highway. This is much better than our 2009 which we still have and is still going strong after 190,000 miles.

1K Rental - Part 1
DavidM,07/28/2019
SEL 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl CVT)
Part One First of all, I rented this for a Midwest swing of 5 states and I put just a bit under 1,000 miles on it. So while I'm not a long-term owner, I did put about 200 miles a day on this SUV and I think that I have a few things worth sharing on that basis. For my little family of three, this smaller SUV (specifically, it was the Mitsubishi Outlander SEL w/AWD) worked out great for what we wanted it to do! The back seat was roomy enough that my six year old wasn’t constantly kicking the front passenger seat all of the time. Right away, this is a crowd pleaser. The SEL trim is covered in leather which I think is always a bonus when little kids could be spilling stuff in the back seat. We didn’t find this SUV to be particularly comfortable or unconformable – however my wife was pretty quiet about the whole 1,000 miles, so it couldn’t have been really terrible, either. The car did occasionally drone on freeway though, and we didn’t really care for that. However, when it did, we were going pretty fast; I had the cruise set at 85mph through large portions of South Dakota where the limit on I-29 is 80mph. The SUV really had no trouble at all maintaining speed once you got there, but as others have said, it’s not sports-car performance in any way. I had never driven a CVT-equipped vehicle this far, ever. Mixed emotions for me – the RPM’s would get right up there and the thing would start to pull itself up to speed. I never felt like it was unsafe, at all, it just required a fairly heavy right foot, which I was more than willing to provide. I wasn’t expecting a lot of speed out of the 2.4 inline four, and really at the end of the day, it was plenty for what I needed it to do. If you are used to something a whole lot faster, then this would get to be frustrating pretty quickly IMHO. The range on this SUV, at least on my road-trip was about 400 miles, probably a little more. I never got much below a quarter of a tank before I filled it up. MPG was about 27 for the entire trip. The automatic climate control in the car is worth mentioning. It worked very well, including the vents in the back seat for my daughter. My only gripe is that the vents cannot be turned on or off up-front using knobs or sliders. We didn’t like that. The ability to change their direction seemed to be limited as well. Minor issues, but things that we noticed. The SUV has heated seats, which we did not use as it was hot most of the time. This car did not have a sunroof, so I have nothing to say about that. Overall, on the road, the Mitsubishi was competent on the road and comfortable. I’d drive one of these again for 1,000 miles if I had to without (too) many complaints.

The Best Cheap Mid-Size SUV
John,11/20/2018
GT 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
I drove an Outlander in Africa through thick mud, deep sand, giant potholes, rocky roads and never got stuck. I travelled long distances through desolate areas and never broke down. Those experiences proved to me that this is a true off roader. I bought the newest model and its been improved even more. My GT is top of the line with all the high-end luxury options, but the price is half that of any of the competition. There is no hype surrounding the Outlander, so it's ignored by most people. Mitsubishi doesn't sell the elite Montero or Montero Sport in the US, so this is the closest substitute. I appreciate this SUV because it gets me home through even the worst road conditions.

Love our Outlander SEL
michael williams,11/12/2019
SEL 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl CVT)
Don't listen to [non-permissible content removed] writing the reviews. Just ask a owner like me. Ive owned many SUV and the Outlander drives better, handles better, awesome gas mileage, visibility is better, and price is better!. My last SUV was a Lexus before my wife talked me into the Outlander. It has all the gadgets that the Lexus had. Insurance is cheaper and the warranty rocks. The LED lights and fog lights really is impressive. The engine power isn't that bad. If you learn to drive a CVT you can really get the Outlander moving. Everybody knows you just don't floor a CVT you get a feel for a power band with foot throttle modulation. The big draw is that it is 98% made in Japan with high quality in compliance assembly. The huge touchscreen and Rockford Fosgate stereo blasts when you want and sounds great when you want easy listening. We bought the Outlander fully loaded at 30K while the competition for the same package was 40K.. The 10 year 100K mile warranty with Vip package and you don't have to pay for maintenance, tires, and oil changes!! Thank you Mitsubishi and so long to all the rest.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
