Back for a new model year, our automaker’s compact crossover is still all that a central MS driver could hope to find in a new SUV — capability, dependability, and a sterling safety commitment incarnate. Best of all, it’s expertly equipped for nearly any excursion. So, what has kept the new Mitsubishi Outlander Sport a favorite? Discover the many reasons people love it for yourself right here at Ridgeland Mitsubishi!
Choose between two engines — a high-efficiency 148-horsepower, 2.0-liter MIVEC in-line four-cylinder in base and midrange trims, prepared to deliver 145 pound-feet of torque, or a more powerful 168-horsepower, 2.4-liter MIVEC I4 in 2.4 GT trims, shelling 167 pound-feet. Either way, you’re in for a confident and enjoyable ride.
Pair the former with a five-speed manual transmission, the mainstay in Outlander Sport 2.0 ES, and you ‘ll find handling that’s engagingly hands-on. Step up to a model with a Sportronic® continuously variable transmission, such as those like 2.0 LE and 2.0 SE and at the top of the line, and you can look forward to ease of use and smooth gear changes. The latter translates into excellent fuel economy, too. A new Outlander Sport can get up to an EPA-estimated 24 mpg in a city like Jackson, MS, 30 mpg down the highway to Madison, and 27 mpg combined between Pearl and Brandon, MS with a CVT.
Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is also the safe bet, owing, for one, to available All-Wheel Control, our automaker’s exclusive all-wheel-drive system. It helps keep the crossover reliable across diverse terrain through Mother Nature’s worst. Plus, new for the model year, a host of new active safety features appear. SE models, for instance, gain a blind-spot warning system, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane-change assistance, while GT models add standard forward collision mitigation, a lane-departure warning system, and auto high-beam headlights. Together, they deliver comprehensive protection and ultimate peace of mind.
Best of all, our brand’s flagship compact SUV is all about accommodations, both comfort and technological. In a sprawling 97.5 cubic feet of passenger space, your choice of fabric and combination-soft-touch seating options appear, and they’re available heated in front to help create the ideal cabin conditions for the climate. Moreover, you’ll have plenty of room for luggage and essentials, as rear seats collapse to yield up to 49.5 cubic feet of cargo room.
Front and center for the ride is your entertainment experience, controlled centrally by a 7-inch touchscreen that becomes a Smartphone Link display audio infotainment system in higher trims. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support come along in select trims, extending your smartphone’s apps and functions to the dash, while HD Radio and SiriusXM compatibility and four- and six-speaker audio systems rind in your favorite programming loudly and clearly.
