2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Overview
In an attempt to bridge the gap between sedan and SUV, the 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport crossover SUV offers excellent fuel economy and a host of premium features and utility.
The 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a five-seat mini crossover that competes with the Kia Soul, Nissan Juke, and Hyundai Tucson. The Outlander Sport is available in ES and SE trim levels and is a smaller version of the midsize Outlander SUV. It features a 148-horsepower, 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine that is mated to either a five-speed manual or continuously variable automatic transmission with auto-manual mode. Front-wheel drive is standard, while added traction and handling in the form of all-wheel drive is optional. The small engine might not pack too much punch off the line, but delivers excellent fuel economy. The Sport receives 24-25 mpg in the city and 29-31 mpg on the highway.
It’s almost too bad that you’ll spend most of your time driving the 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport instead of admiring it as it rolls by. The Outlander Sport is a handsome car, with sleek lines, a trapezoidal air dam and grille, and an aerodynamic rear fascia. A panoramic glass roof with LED mood lighting spans four feet in length and really is impressive at night. Sixteen-inch wheels with low-rolling-resistance tires are standard, as are heated side mirrors and LED taillights. The SE model boasts 18-inch alloy wheels, high-intensity-discharge headlights, and fog lights.
Don't worry though, there's plenty to love on the inside of the Outlander Sport as well, such as Mitsubishi’s new Fuse hands-free link system with USB port that manages your iPod and Bluetooth hands-free calling. An optional 40 GB hard drive navigation system with music server and real time traffic is displayed on a seven-inch color screen. A 710-watt Rockford Fosgate audio system with nine speakers, SIRIUS Satellite Radio, push button start, and heated front seats are also optional. When it comes to cargo space, the 2011 Outlander Sport features 49.5 cubic feet with the rear seat folded.
Safety is a top priority for the 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, which includes Active Stability Control, traction control, Hill Start Assist, tire pressure monitoring system, antilock brakes with Brake Assist, advanced front airbags, front side-impact airbags, and side-impact curtain airbags with rollover protection. A rearview backup camera is optional.
