The 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is an established player in the world of small crossovers, trying to blend the best attributes of a hatchback with the versatility of an SUV. And it offers a lot of features for its modest price tag.
What's New for 2015
For 2015, the Outlander Sport gets numerous changes under the skin. The CVT transmission that comes on most models has been revised for better refinement and efficiency. There's also a new electric power steering system and more sound insulation and thicker glass for a quieter cabin. LED running lights are new for SE models.
Choosing your Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
The Outlander Sport comes with one engine, a 2-liter four-cylinder with 148 horsepower, with standard front-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive.
- Front-wheel drive models come standard with a five-speed manual transmission.
- An automated continuously variable transmission (CVT) is optional with front-wheel drive and standard with all-wheel drive.
Base ES and the uplevel SE trims differ on feature content and trim:
All-wheel drive is an option on the SE, as is leather upholstery. The Premium Package includes a panoramic sunroof and nine-speaker Rockford Fosgate Audio system, while the Touring Package adds navigation and an auto-dimming rearview mirror on top of that.
SE trim represents the best value without feeling too stripped of content. But be careful when adding options, as loaded Outlander Sports can jump into the price range of more spacious and more powerful crossovers.
