Plenty to choose from:
Mitsubishi's volume model, the 2019 Outlander Sport sells at a discount most of the time.
Inventories are about evenly split between the base ES and popularly equipped SE. The latter is available with all-wheel drive, although availability varies by region. Selection remains quite good.
The carryover 2020 Outlander Sport started arriving at dealers last month — and already carries handsome incentives. Supplies will firm up over the next few months.
Current factory offers are available nationally and will remain in effect through December 2, 2019. It's possible Mitsubishi will enhance incentives for Black Friday.
Instant savings for all:
The factory rebate on the 2019 Outlander Sport remains at $2,000, a very good amount for this model. Current Mitsubishi customers also get a $250 loyalty bonus.
The initial rebate on the 2020 Outlander Sport is a modest $500, but the loyalty bonus balloons to $1,250. There's also a $1,250 conquest bonus for owners of competing branding. That adds up to terrific savings for a 2020 model in this price class.
What's up with leases:
Like last month, the 2019 Outlander Sport ES with automatic starts at $274 for 39 months (12,000 miles a year) with $2,048 due at signing.
The effective monthly cost is $327, which isn't a good value for a vehicle with such a modest MSRP. We'll probably see some improvement in the coming months, but keep in mind that the Outlander Sport has never been a reliably good lease value.
The initial offer on the 2020 Outlander Sport ES is the same, except the cash at signing is $1,000 higher, which makes it an even worse lease value.
0% APR + deferred payments:
In place of the standard rebate on a 2019 Outlander Sport, Mitsubishi now offers 0% financing for 72 months. Best of all, you don't have to make your first payment for 90 days.
On the 2020 Outlander Sport, Mitsubishi offering 0% for 48 months, but the payment deferment is available on 2019s only.
