2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Overview

Mitsubishi's Outlander crossover is available with front- or all-wheel drive. It can seat up to seven people. Competitors include the Hyundai Santa Fe and Toyota RAV4.

For 2012, the ES model gains a new wheel cover design, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a backup camera is available. Also new is an Eco indicator.

Outside, the Outlander featuers LED taillights and in addition to a rear liftgate, a small rear tailgate that flips down to make loading easier and supports up to 440 pounds. 16-inch steel wheels with revised covers are standard (18-inch alloy wheels are available). The aluminum roof saves weight and provides a lower center of gravity which improves the driving experience and makes the Outlander more stable and less prone to rollovers.
Inside, the Outlander ES can seat up to five people on front bucket seats, and a 60/40-split folding second-row seat can tumble forward. SE and GT models can seat up to seven with a standard two-person third-row seat that folds into the floor. Standard interior features include air conditioning, cruise control, power windows, locks, and mirrors, and a CD stereo. Optional are automatic climate control, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls and Bluetooth connectivity, 40-gigabyte hard drive-based navigation system with real-time traffic info, leather seating surfaces, heated front seats, and a backup camera. 

ES and SE Outlanders have a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that makes 168 horsepower and a continuously variable automatic transmission. The 3.0-liter V-6 engine in the GT makes 230 hp and 215 pounds-feet of torque and drives a six-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is optional.

Standard safety features include all-disc antilock brakes, side-impact airbags for the front seats, side curtain airbags for the first and second rows, electronic stability system, and traction control.
