The subcompact crossover SUV Mitsubishi Outlander Sport trails behind the class rivals in most aspects. The Outlander Sport isn’t as comfortable and efficient as the modern competition and the acceleration isn’t its bright side either. The low price is its strong side and it also offers the most of the features one may demand.
The model received an updated styling and added new center console for the 2018 version. It also gained the new technologies like the modern infotainment system and can also be had with the advanced safety equipment, although in the limited number of trims.
For the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, the thing won’t become much better. Mitsubishi hasn’t yet revealed details but after the recent update, we should expect a better availability of the modern systems plus several new options or packages.
2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport: Design
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sports isn’t especially convincing visually but still has a few attractive details to get the attention. The model got the revised styling for the latest version. The new grille arrived in the combination with the LED-accentuated headlights and wider air intakes. The rear fascia also received several modifications and comes with the chrome accents.
The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport will keep the things familiar while we should expect new color and wheel options and possibly new exterior theme. The model will ride on 18-inch wheels in all versions while will add more chrome accents in the upper grades.
Inside, the Outlander Sport isn’t refined as the modern rivals and the material quality isn’t impressive. The model has well-organized controls and a modern infotainment system. The 7-inch touchscreen interface will start from the base version and will support smartphone integration features. The premium Rockford Fosgate sound system will also be available.
The buyers will also be able to upgrade with leather upholstery, heated front seats, automatic wipers, a sunroof and more. The active safety systems will also be present and should become more accessible for the new model year. The forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, lane departure warning are available now but Mitsubishi might add new systems such as the adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, etc.
2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport: Performance
The Outlands Sport isn’t a great performer as the Spot in its name could trick someone. The model will return with two engine options and two transmissions and the dilemma will also be between the two- and all-wheel drive.
The base 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport will be motivated by the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The power output will be 148 hp and torque 145 pound-feet. In the combination with this engine, Mitsubishi will offer the 5-speed manual and continually variable transmission.
A 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine will be a more potent option. It makes 168 horsepower and torque of 167 pound-feet. The fuel economy with this engine will stay around 22/28 mpg city/highway. The base engine will be slightly better with 23 mpg city and 29 mpg highway.
2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport: Release, Price
The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport will again put the base price tag around $20, 000. The most equipped versions will settle around mid-20, 000.
