While the Mitsubishi Outlander has been building its legacy since the turn of the century, it wasn’t until 2010 that the Outlander Sport entered the scene. Beginning production that year, the Outlander Sport has been establishing its own legacy quite well, as the smaller subcompact sibling of the now iconic Outlander. If you’re in the market for an entry-level crossover in the San Jose, CA, area, the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport should definitely be considered.
Whereas the larger Outlander can seat up to seven across its three rows, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport was only designed to accommodate up to five in its front and rear seating. It shares a platform and a name with its big sibling, but very little beyond that. Shoppers interested in a small but spacious utility vehicle might find the perfect option in the Outlander Sport.
Depending on which trim level you opt for, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has two different powertrains to offer. The standard models come equipped with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine capable of generating 148 horsepower alongside 145 pound-feet of torque. On the other side, the GT trim levels offer a larger 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that improves performance to 168 hp and 167 lb-ft. of torque. That equates to a standard 23 miles per gallon through the city and 29 mpg on the highway or 23/25 with the bigger engine.
Despite being an entry-level crossover, the subcompact Outlander Sport is packed with some pretty incredible advanced safety technologies as standard features. This includes Forward Collision Mitigation to help prevent frontal collisions, Lane Departure Warning to keep an eye on your position within the lane and Automatic High Beams to automatically adjust the brightness of your headlights. These are joined by plenty of other great features and technologies that are sure to make each experience a good one.
If you’re interested in personalizing your 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, you’ll find several packages and additional accessories to add on to your crossovers beyond what’s standard on a given trim level. This includes the All-Weather Package, the Exterior Trim Package, the Illumination Package, the Popular Value Package and the Protection Value Package, plus a host of a la carte accessories like black lug nuts, black wheel locks, body graphics, carbon grille, hood protector, roof rack crossbars and more.
