Pricing for the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport starts at a tempting $22,275 for a front-wheel-drive ES equipped with a five-speed manual transmission and rises to just $28,065 for a range-topping GT all-wheel drive and a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
The good news for 2019 is the addition of a handful of advanced safety features on the SE model, with a more complete selection standard on the new GT trim that replaces last year's SEL model – although roof rails are no longer standard, and leather seats, a power driver's seat, and the Rockford Fosgate audio system have been dropped, entirely.
Still, even the base ES comes well-equipped for the price, with 18-inch alloy wheels, a seven-inch touchscreen, automatic climate control, and Bluetooth. Of the four models – ES, LE, SE, and GT – we'd choose the range-topping GT. Not only is it the only trim with the larger 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, auto on/off HID headlights, automatic high beams, and faux leather seats, it also features the widest range of advanced safety features including automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, lane change assist, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking.
