Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
STATUS: Mild redesign for 2020; manual transmission is gone - The Outlander Sport has been a Mitsubishi staple since the 2011 model year and for 2020 it receives a modest physical overhaul that includes a new nose, headlights and hood. The interior also receives new cloth seat coverings. Passenger room is virtually identical between the Outlander Sport and the Outlander while the Sport's cargo space is about 30 percent less. Both the base 148-horsepower four-cylinder and the optional 168-horsepower four-cylinder are connected to continuously variable transmissions. (The manual transmission has been discontinued.) The optional all-wheel-drive system powers only the front wheels, except when tire slip is detected. Then, up to 70 percent of engine torque can be directed to the rear wheels. The system's "Lock" position maintains a 60:40 front:rear torque split when conditions require traction at all four corners. Base Outlander Sports are well turned out, but the top-end Touring model is loaded with plenty of luxury amenities plus active-safety technologies such as emergency autonomous braking.
