With its compact frame providing agility and parking convenience, the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a great choice for city dwellers who want high performance and practicality without a huge, difficult-to-park frame.
With the 2015 Outlander Sport, you have a choice. Either you can sacrifice quickness for the economy of its four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine, which puts out only 148 horsepower, or choose the larger 2.4-liter models that can get you more quickness and acceleration in heavy traffic, but set you back a few dollars more at the pump.
Unfortunately, the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport doesn’t provide much in the way of interior comfort. With leather seating only available as an option on the higher-end model, the cheap cloth upholstery provides little in the way of plush seating during long rides. Other conveniences, such as audio controls on the steering wheel, a 140-watt sound system, and keyless entry, though, make up for the car’s lack in other areas.
For a compact crossover, however, the car does have a roomy feel inside. The car is easy to get into, unlike most family sedans that you have to lean over to enter. More insulation, too, provides more ear comfort, blocking out noise from its own engine and from outside.
Another feature that will make this car a family favorite is its safety features. Rated high in crash testing and safety, the car has some additional amenities that add some extra safeguards for busy families. A full set of airbags, including front knee bags, are standard. A backup camera is optional. LED lamps provide better vision at night for tired drivers.
Families on a budget will appreciate that the sticker price on the base model is priced under $20,000. Even higher-end models are available in the mid-twenties, making this car a veritable bargain for families who want a new car at pre-owned prices. In its 2.0-liter incarnation, its fuel economy is commendable. The car gets 25 miles to the gallon in the city, and up to 32 on the open road.
Those who need a car to get them around town for work and recreation need look no further than the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. Its outstanding value, despite its lack of amenities, makes it a great choice for those who need to pinch pennies.
