Compare the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

Loading Comparison...


The five-passenger Mitsubishi Outlander Sport makes a play with its economical price and sportier-than-average styling. Not to be confused with the regular Outlander, the Outlander Sport is shorter, lighter, and easier to maneuver and park. The junior crossover in the lineup, it’s more of a lifestyle vehicle than a family hauler, likely to appeal to active singles and young couples.

The Outlander Sport has been around since 2011. The 2016 Outlander Sport receives a new grille and wheels to keep things looking fresh. The inside gets some updates for 2016 as well, including a redesigned steering wheel and larger infotainment display screen. There’s also a new 2016 Outlander Sport SEL with leather upholstery standard.

The standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine puts out 148 horsepower and comes with your choice of a 5-speed manual or continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).

However, most models are powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder, which puts out 168 horsepower and comes only with the CVT. All-wheel drive is available with both engines, but requires the CVT.

When equipped with the 2-liter and CVT, the Outlander Sport is EPA rated at 24/32 mpg City/Highway and 27 mpg Combined, the best showing in the lineup. With the more powerful 2.4-liter under the hood, you’re looking at 23/28 mpg City/Highway and 25 mpg Combined. Adding all-wheel drive to either engine drops these ratings by about 1 mpg.


Outlander Sport ES ($19,595) comes standard with the 2-liter engine, plus features like heated mirrors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth, and a four-speaker sound system. ES models are available with the 2.4-liter ($21,295).

Outlander Sport SE ($22,495) gets the 2.4-liter engine as standard, plus heated front seats, keyless ignition, automatic climate control, a rearview camera, and an upgraded sound system.

Outlander Sport SEL ($23,995) adds more in the way of comfort and convenience, including leather upholstery, power-folding mirrors, automatic wipers and headlamps, and shift paddles for the CVT. Outlander Sport GT ($25,995) receives a panoramic sunroof, xenon headlamps, ambient LED lighting, and a Rockford Fosgate sound system. (All prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)


Outlander Sport looks a little more refined and sedate for 2016 thanks to the revised front end, which was cribbed from the larger Outlander. The previous bluntness has been cured, albeit at the loss of some sportiness. The addition of LED running lights and thick chrome trim goes a long way to disguise the Sport’s bargain mission.

The Outlander takes up no more space than a compact passenger car. In fact, its width and height are about the same as that of a Mitsubishi Lancer sedan. The overall shape is similar to a tall wagon or hatchback, but the standard 18-inch wheels and chunky lower-body moldings keep it looking like a proper crossover. Although the styling is familiar, it remains rather attractive, even charming depending on your perspective.


Clever interior packaging yields more passenger room than expected in a vehicle of such tidy dimensions. Two adults or three children can fit comfortably in the back, and there’s a nifty center pass-through that lets you carry long items and two people at the same time. All seats are positioned relatively high for fine visibility and topped with nicely contoured headrests.

The car-like ride height makes it easy to get in and out, and takes the strain off your back when loading groceries and toddlers. With the rear seat folded, the Outlander Sport offer 49.5 cubic feet of flat cargo space. That’s not bad for the smallest class of crossover, but well shy of standard compacts like Ford Escape or Honda CR-V.

The upright dashboard features faux carbon trim, red-lit gauges, and a few bright accents. The layout is clean and uncluttered, though not particularly beautiful. You’ll still find plenty of hard plastic surfaces, even though most competitors have gone soft-touch. The quality of materials is closer to what we expect in an economy car rather than a family vehicle. This is one area where the Outlander Sport’s easy price becomes apparent.

Driving Impressions

Perhaps the Outlander Sport’s strongest suit is how it handles the road. Steering is light and very responsive. You’ll find none of the unwanted body motions that sometimes haunt taller vehicles. When it comes to overall agility, especially in urban settings, the Sport surpasses the average crossover by a significant margin.

The same can’t be said of engine performance. The 2-liter feels just adequate with the manual transmission and sluggish when paired with the CVT. It’s also quite chatty most of the time and downright noisy under full throttle. The 2.4-liter engine makes the Outlander Sport significantly quicker, though it’s not much quieter. Mitsubishi added more sound insulation last year, but the Sport is still a loudmouth compared to small crossovers from the big brands. We suspect this issue will linger until it’s blessed with newer, more refined engines.

In better news, braking performance was impressive for this class. The Outlander Sport stops with confidence, and the pedal feels just firm enough to be reassuring. Add in its nimble handling, and the Sport feels decidedly spunky in city driving.


The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport accomplishes what it sets out to do: provide genuine crossover style and versatility for the price of a hatchback. As tempting as that sounds, buyers should know that a high level of refinement isn’t part of the equation.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
