What's New For 2017?
Only a few noteworthy changes have been made to the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. First and foremost, the base ES trim no longer comes with a 2.4-L engine. Also, the ES now features standard automatic climate control and better cloth upholstery, making it a better competitor for some of its more stylish and feature-ridden peers.
The 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport comes only as a compact SUV. All-wheel drive comes standard on the high-end GT but is optional on all other trims, which come standard with front-wheel drive.
There are five different trims available for the 2017 line-up. Available trims are the base 2.0 ES, 2.0 LE, 2.4 SE, 2.4 SEL, and the top-of-the-line 2.4 GT.
The 2.0-L and 2.4-L engines both feel rather flimsy, although the 2.4-L delivers a somewhat zippier performance. However, the 2.4-L performs at about the same level as base trim engines on other vehicles in the compact SUV class. Acceleration is relatively sluggish, with the upgraded engine getting from 0 to 60 mph in about 8.8 seconds.
Braking on the Outlander Sport is, at best, shaky, if not a bit scary. There is a lot of side-to-side jiggling, and the brake pedal feels much softer than it should for a new vehicle. Other vehicles in this class inspire much more confidence in their braking abilities.
The steering wheel is a bit too unresponsive, giving almost no feedback to the driver. Driving on the CVT feels extremely rough, and the Outlander Sport performs poorly as an off-roader as well since it does not have hill descent control. To top it all off, the interior is uncomfortable and offers minimal cargo space.
The Outlander Sport gets good fuel efficiency. The 2.0 ES gets 27 mpg combined (24 city/30 highway), while the 2.4 GT gets 25 combined mpg (23 city/29 highway).
Although the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport gets good gas mileage and is affordably priced, its multiple performance- and comfort-based drawbacks might lead you to consider looking at other vehicles in this class.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Mitsubishi Outlander Sport invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Mitsubishi Outlander Sport MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
