Introduction

The mission of the Mitsubishi Outlander is to offer value-minded families efficiency, comfort, and space; it’s close in size to the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, and Subaru Forester, but it feels roomier inside. The 2017 Outlander gets interior updates.

Outlander offers seating for up to seven, although the third-row seat is small.

Today’s Outlander was introduced for 2014, and was updated for 2016, with changed styling, better interior materials, more sound deadening, and an updating of the transmission.

2017 Outlanders get new cabin features.

Outlander comes standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder rated at 166 hp mated to a CVT.

The Outlander GT features a 224-horsepower V6. Displacing 3.0-liters, the GT accelerates from zero to sixty in about 8.0 seconds, slower than rivals. However it increases the towing capacity from 1500 to 3500 pounds, and has a pleasing exhaust note.

AWD comes in two versions. Outlander ES gets a new system with a locking center differential. Outlander GT gets a more sophisticated system that controls differentials front and center.

Outlander ES is estimated by the federal government to get 25/30 miles per gallon City/Highway, or 27 mpg Combined (24/29/26 mpg with AWD). That’s among the highest mileage vehicles with third-row seating.

The GT, with V6 and all-wheel drive, gets 20/27/23 mpg, on Premium gasoline.

On a fast drive over mountain roads, we got 21 mpg in the four-cylinder, and 20 mpg in the V6, both AWD. We found the four-cylinder underpowered, but the V6 isn’t much quicker.

Mitsubishi plans to introduce an all-wheel-drive Outlander PHEV (plug-in hybrid) as a 2018 model. It will be able to function as a series or parallel hybrid, whichever is most efficient at the time. The system combines a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with two 60-kilowatt motors, with an electric-only range of more than 30 miles. Charging it completely will take about 4.5 hours on a 240-volt outlet.

The Outlander gets top results in every category of the IIHS tests, to achieve the insurance industry agency’s Top Safety Pick+ status. From the NHTSA, it gets four stars overall for front-drive models and five stars with AWD.

Available safety features include lane-departure warnings, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warnings with automatic emergency braking and, new for 2017, pedestrian detection. Those items can all be had together on the mid-range SEL, as can three new features: blind spot monitors, lane change assist, and rear cross traffic alerts.

Lineup

The 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander comes in ES, SE, and SEL models, and the V6 GT, with front- or all-wheel drive. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

Outlander ES ($23,495) comes standard with cloth upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, remote keyless entry, cruise control, steering-wheel audio controls, Bluetooth, six-speaker 140-watt audio system, 60/40-split folding second-row seats, 50/50-split third-row seats, power locks, windows, and mirrors; under-floor rear storage, rain-sensing wipers, leather-wrapped steering-wheel and shift knob, three 12-volt power outlets, USB port, 6.1-inch touchscreen HD radio, rearview camera, and 18-inch alloy wheels. Outlander ES AWC ($24,995) comes with all-wheel drive.

Outlander SE ($24,495) adds satellite radio, Apple Car Play, and Android Auto. It also comes with fog lamps, heated seats, and high-contrast instruments. Outlander SE S-AWC ($26,495) gets the upgraded all-wheel-drive.

Outlander SEL ($25,495) upgrades with leather seating surfaces, remote power liftgate, and Rockford Fosgate Audio with satellite radio. The SEL also gets a power driver’s seat, power-folding mirrors, roof rails, gloss-black interior trim, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a universal garage door opener. Outlander SEL S-AWC ($27,495) gets all-wheel drive.

Outlander GT 3.0 S-AWC ($31,695) gets the V6, the 710-watt, nine-speaker Rockford Fosgate audio system, the heated steering wheel, automatic LED headlights, LED fog lights. The GT Touring package adds the multi-view camera system, forward collision warning with emergency braking and pedestrian detection, lane-departure warnings, and adaptive cruise control.

Options include a rear-seat DVD player, remote engine starting, and additional cargo solutions.

Walkaround

Outlander styling sits somewhere between generic and awkward. Mitsubishi says the Outlander’s Dynamic Shield styling is derived from the look of the bumper-side protection that’s been put on generations of the Montero SUV. That design is highlighted by chrome trim with a shape that some say looks like fangs. Mitsubishi says that the Outlander doesn’t have a bad angle, but we’d say the front end is it.

Other bits of chrome trim are found on the sides and at the back, where the trim’s shape echoes the front grille. The look is not as sporty as the design of the 2014 and 2015 models, but the profile works very well.

Interior

The cabin is highly functional but not harmonious. The low instrument panel is simple; some might think it’s too plain, while others might think it refreshingly straightforward. There aren’t a lot of buttons, and the layout and trims are spare. It’s at once understated, modest, warm, and accommodating.

The interior materials are as good as those in competitors like Jeep Cherokee and Ford Escape. The roomy cabin is also one of the quietest in this class.

The front seats are supportive with lower cushions just long enough for tall people, and the driving position is great. Unlike many crossovers in this class, the second row doesn’t feel flat and hard, and it’s comfortable enough for adults.

The second-row seats fold in a three-step process: Flip the headrests forward, lift the lower cushion and place it against the rear of the front seat, and flip the seatbacks forward. You can’t slide the second row fore and aft, as you can with some other three-row models.

Both the second and third rows fold perfectly flat, creating a very useful cargo floor with a low load height. There are small side boxes just aft of the wheelwells, plus a small under-floor storage compartment that can hide a laptop.

It will take a kid to reach the third row, and once back there, even pre-teens might be looking at their knees.

Driving Impressions

The Outlander isn’t designed to be sporty or engaging to drive, and it isn’t; it’s just easy and comfortable. It’s quite soft and detached from the road, but well-mannered. It’s a confidence-inspiring, driver-friendly crossover. But it’s still underpowered with the 2.4-liter, 166-horsepower engine, and the CVT is too slow to respond. It follows a logic that holds some ratios while accelerating, it’s indecisive on long grades, and barely adequate for this seven-passenger vehicle weighing 3500 pounds.

This transmission was updated in 2016. Its total ratio span is 7:1, as opposed to 6:1 in the previous unit, which means that it has a lower ratio for better standing-start launches, as well as reduced revs in highway cruising. Mitsubishi has worked on making this unit more responsive and quicker to adjust the ratio when passing, and the CVT aims to reduce some of the motorboating feel that comes with many CVTs by holding onto ratios for a short time during acceleration. The net effect is that it while it seems at ease and effective in level, lower-speed use, it hunts around quite a bit on hills.

Outlander GT models use a V6 making 224 horsepower; it’s considerably thirstier and needs premium fuel. To add to the disappointment, it doesn’t develop that much torque until you rev it. At least the paddle-shifters and 6-speed automatic enliven the driving a bit.

With either engine and all-wheel drive, there’s an Eco Mode button that uses only front-wheel drive until there’s actual slip at the front wheels. The mode also softens throttle response and uses the air conditioning compressor more conservatively.

For the 2016 changes, Mitsubishi worked to improve the ride and handling, by reinforcing the front suspension crossmember, changing the spring rates, and tuning the shocks to match. The electric power steering is precise and rather firm, and perhaps a little too aggressively centered.

The Outlander has more off-road ability than most other cars in its class. It’s worth noting Mitsubishi Motors was once a leader in rallying and in Paris-Dakar raids across the desert. Outlander’s AWD and suspension are fully up to the task of heading up most rugged gravel roads or two-tracks on the way to a trailhead.

The available all-wheel drive in the ES is basic, with 2WD, 4WD, and Lock modes (the latter a locking center differential). All-wheel-drive SE and SEL models use a more advanced system; the GT comes standard with it. It uses an electronically controlled center coupling, combined with an open rear differential. This system also has a separate active front differential to help get the right torque split for the conditions, which helps power through some exceptional conditions, like when one wheel is on ice.

Summary

The Mitsubishi Outlander provides functional family appeal for a reasonable price, but the powertrains are weak, the third-row seat space is tiny, and the infotainment features are behind the times.

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.

Options

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.
