The 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a small SUV. It can seat five people and comes in different versions, including ES, SE, SEL, and GT, with front-wheel drive and a four-cylinder engine as the standard.
In 2017, the Outlander Sport got some updates, including a sleek shark-fin antenna and automatic climate control.The Outlander Sport has a stylish design with modern looks, including wraparound headlights, well-shaped wheel wells, and body sculpting. In the back, there are wraparound tail lights, a small liftgate spoiler, and a single exhaust tip.
Standard features include halogen headlights, heated side mirrors, and LED tail lights. You can also add features like automatic headlights, fog lights, and a panoramic glass roof with adjustable LED lighting.
Mitsubishi offers 18-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires for a good balance of performance and comfort. The Outlander Sport can fit five people, but it’s most comfortable with four. The interior has some plastic surfaces but also soft-touch materials on the dashboard and doors. The front seats are supportive, and all versions have a rear seat that can be folded down to create more cargo space.
Standard interior features include power windows and locks, a steering column that can be adjusted, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, fabric seats, automatic climate control, and a rear cargo light.
There are also available features like aluminum pedals, power-adjustable front seats, heated front seats, leather seats, and illuminated mirrors. You can choose between two engines for the 2017 Outlander Sport. The base model has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 148 horsepower, while an optional 2.4-liter engine produces 168 horsepower. You can get front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
The base engine with front-wheel drive can come with a five-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission (CVT). All other versions come with the CVT. The fuel economy is good, with up to 24/30 mpg for the base engine and 23/28 mpg for the larger engine.
In terms of speed, the Outlander Sport is not the fastest, especially with the base engine. The larger engine is better but still not as powerful as some competitors like the Ford Escape and Honda CR-V. However, the Outlander Sport handles well with minimal body roll in turns.
It’s worth noting that some other SUVs in this category are quieter, and the Mitsubishi can be a bit noisy, even under light acceleration.The standard audio system in the Outlander Sport has a four-speaker system with a CD player, Bluetooth, and a USB port.
If you want more tech, you can get satellite radio, a 6.1- or 7-inch touchscreen, and audio systems with more speakers. You can also add features like HD radio, a rearview camera, and navigation.
One thing to keep in mind is that the Outlander Sport doesn’t offer advanced driver-assist technologies like lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control with emergency braking, which are common in many modern vehicles.
