Mitsubishi’s entry in the crowded compact crossover field, the Outlander enters its third generation with fresh aerodynamic styling and improved fuel efficiency. It remains one of the few vehicles in its class to offer seven-passenger seating.

What's New for 2014

This year’s slicker styling and engineering tweaks boost efficiency by 2 mpg across the board. The restyled interior carries a third-row seat as standard. New options include adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation and lane-departure warning.

Choosing Your Mitsubishi Outlander

The revamped Outlander can be easy to miss in this ultra-competitive class because its main virtues are inside: seven-passenger seating and a wealth of available technology.

The Outlander starts out with 2.4-liter four-cylinder that produces 166 horsepower. Buyers seeking swifter performance can opt for a 3-liter V6 rated at 224 horsepower. Both engines are matched to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The available all-wheel drive system makes the Outlander an all-weather vehicle.

Your Outlander’s drivetrain configuration will depend on the trim level:

The base ES comes well-equipped in four-cylinder, front-drive form with conveniences such as heated mirrors, a sliding and reclining second-row seat, automatic climate control and rear privacy glass.

A step up to the SE brings near-luxury features like keyless start, heated front seats, a rearview camera, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and an upgraded touchscreen audio system with Bluetooth and HD radio. It also gives buyers access to the Premium Package (sunroof, power liftgate, leather seating with driver power, and Rockford Fosgate surround sound) and Touring Package (rain-sensing wipers, voice-activated navigation, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning and collision mitigation). Opt for all-wheel drive with the SE 4x4.

Standard features at the top of the line include the 3-liter V6 and all-wheel drive, along with xenon headlamps, satellite radio and standard rain-sensing wipers. The Premium and Touring packages can be added as well.

Any Outlander can get the Touring’s navigation system as a stand-alone option. Other single features include rear parking sensors, remote start and a rear-seat entertainment system.

CarsDirect Tip

The Outlander can get expensive as you work your way up the trim levels and add options—a thoughtfully optioned SE with front-wheel drive should strike the right balance for most families.
