The 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander was keen on not being an outsider when it first debuted in the compact SUV market. The competition was already tough to begin with, so coming in soft wasn’t an option at all. Fast forward to today, and it still remains one of the more reliable options out there in its class.
Changes for Improvement
This iteration made sure to bring something of value to the table, foremost of which were the new suspension and power steering setup. Wheels have also been updated to 18 inches on standard, and four-wheel drive is available as an option, at least for the ES trim.
These changes impact the overall feel of the ride, and it does so quite positively, too. Overall handling is found to be smooth and responsive, and very comfortable given the quietness of the cabin.
Even the basic features that come standard with all models contribute to the overall smoothness of the experience riding in the Outlander Sport. The engine is a 2.0-liter inline-4, kicking up 148 horsepower with 145 lb-ft of torque. Fuel efficiency for the manual model is 24 for city and 30 for highway; 24 for city and 31 for highway on automatic; and 24 for city and 29 for highway on automatic all-wheel drive.
You can also get a closer look at this model at the nearest Ford dealership to you serving El Paso. Don’t forget to ask about the other add-ons you can get, such as the rearview camera, a 710-watt Rockford Fosgate sound system, panoramic glass roof, and remote engine start.
