- Repair & Care
Mitsubishi's smallest SUV is available in ES, SE, XLS and GT trims. Front- and all-wheel-drive models are offered for all versions except the GT, which only comes with all-wheel drive. The Outlander can seat up to seven people. It competes with the Hyundai Santa Fe, Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V.
New for 2011
For 2011, the SE model gains a standard third seating row, and the XLS trim level gets some exterior revisions that make it resemble the top-of-the-line GT. Fuel economy also improves.
After its 2010 freshening, the 2011 Outlander changes very little, though GT models do receive special badges.
Exterior features include:
The Outlander ES can seat up to five people on front bucket seats and a 60/40-split folding second-row seat that can also tumble forward. SE, GT and XLS models can seat up to seven with a standard two-person third-row seat that can fold into the floor.
Interior features include:

The six-speed automatic incorporates a clutchless-manual mode that's separate from the XLS' paddle shifters.
