2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Overview (See Available Styles)

  • Two 4-cylinder engine options
  • 6.1-inch touchscreen and Rockford Fosgate audio are available
  • 4- out of 5-star overall crash test safety rating from the NHTSA
The 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a compact SUV that seats 5 passengers. It competes with the Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage, and Mazda CX-5. This year, it remains largely unchanged.

Four trims are available: the ES, SE, SEL, and GT.

The Outlander Sport features a bold front-end that was designed after Mitsubishi’s “Dynamic Shield” concept. Its blacked-out headlights, bumper, grille, and air dam create a singular, visually unifying shape that is highlighted by chrome accents. All trims come with standard two-tone, 18-inch alloy wheels and LED tail lights. Front fog lights, power/heated side mirrors with LED turn signal indicators, a rear spoiler, and a panoramic moonroof are available as well.

Powering the Outlander Sport ES is a standard 148-hp, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 5-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). For the SE and higher trim levels, a more powerful 168-hp, 2.4-liter 4-cylinder paired to the CVT is available, which produces 167 pounds-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive comes standard, while all-wheel drive is optional. Fuel economy for the 5-speed manual models is an EPA-estimated 24/30 mpg city/highway. It dips slightly to a 23/29 mpg rating for the models with the CVT.

Inside, the Outlander Sport has a standard cloth interior with a 60/40 split-folding rear seat. Cargo capacity is 45.5 cubic feet with the rear seat folded down. The center stack features a standard multimedia system that includes a color display, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, and a USB Port. It can be upgraded with a 6.1-inch touchscreen, a DVD player, an integrated navigation system with voice recognition, and a Rockford Fosgate premium audio system. Standard features include a leather-wrapped steering wheel, remote keyless entry, and automatic climate control. Leather-trim upholstery, power/heated front seats, remote vehicle start, ambient lighting, and an automatic dimming rearview mirror are also available.

The Outlander Sport earned a 4- out of 5-star overall crash test safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). An advance 7 airbag system, antilock brakes, electronic stability system, hill start assist, and a tire-pressure monitoring system come standard. Optional features include a backup camera and rain-sensing wipers.
