2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

We take the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport 2.4 GT AWD for a test drive and check out the interior, exterior and cargo space.

What Is the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport?

The Outlander Sport is Mitsubishi’s smallest SUV. Offered with front- or four-wheel drive, it has room for five and is available with a choice of two engines: a 148-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder or a 168-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder. A continuously variable automatic transmission is standard. The Outlander Sport competes with other subcompact SUVs such as the Honda HR-V, Nissan Rogue Sport and Hyundai Kona.

What’s New on the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport?

The Outlander Sport gets updated front and rear styling that includes new bumpers, a new hood and new fenders. There are also new LED headlights.

What Features in the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Are Most Important?

The base ES model comes standard with a 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system, automatic climate control and 18-inch alloy wheels. Stepping up to the SE trim level adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, heated front seats and push-button start. SE models also get forward collision mitigation, lane departure warning, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert and automatic high-beam headlights.

Should I Buy the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport?

The sea of SUVs is getting more and more crowded with offerings from nearly every manufacturer. Mitsubishi continues to be the underdog in the segment with its aging Outlander Sport. Its starting price is attractive, but unimpressive engines and interior quality are enough reasons to give the competition a serious look before buying.

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.
