2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview

The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport gets a refresh for the model year, with the focus being updating its exterior styling.
ExteriorStyling changes are highlighted by a new nose that features an updated front grille drawn from Mitsubishi’s Dynamic Shield design concept. This look is also worn by the larger Outlander and will eventually make its way across the rest of the Mitsubishi lineup. The middle of the front bumper is blacked out, which joins the grille with the lower air intake to form what looks like one continuous opening. The headlights have been restyled as well, and the fog lights lose their LED accents, adding black surrounds to better match the rest of the nose.
There are also new standard 18-inch alloy wheels, while SEL and GT models add new power folding side mirrors with LED turn signal indicators. Three new paint colors are available: Cool Silver, Diamond White Pearl and Quartz Brown.

InteriorThe interior design is unchanged, but there is a new steering wheel on all models. SE and higher trim levels add a new a 6.1-inch screen for the display audio system and upgraded seat fabric. SEL and GT models now come with an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and the SE features a new light gray interior color scheme option.

There are two transmission choices: a five-speed manual or continuously variable transmission. The Outlander Sport also continues to offer a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty, which ties it with Hyundai and Kia.
SafetyBeyond the federally mandated front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system, the Outlander Sport offers additional airbags (side-impact, side curtain and driver’s knee) and hill start assist.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
