2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport LE 2WD Review

This smaller, more efficient take on the Mitsubishi Outlander is sure to resonate with city drivers looking for a hip family car that doesn’t cause unnecessary pain at the pump. Fitted with a thrifty 2.0-liter inline-4 and continuously variable transmission, the Outlander Sport achieves up to 31 mpg highway without ever feeling sluggish. In our mix of city and highway driving, we earned an average of 26.5 mpg. Our Mercury Gray tester also came stocked with value-boosting features like an Eco Driver indicator lamp and regenerative braking.

Warranty/Service: 5-year/60,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty; 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty; 7-year/100,000-mile anti-corrosion/perforation limited warranty; 5-year/unlimited-mile 24-hour roadside assistance
