Should I Buy the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport?

Mitsubishi continues to be the underdog in the subcompact SUV class with its aging Outlander Sport. Its starting price is attractive, but unimpressive drivetrains, a choppy ride and dated interior styling are enough reason to give the competition a serious look before buying.

This may be the best vehicle I 've purchased

This car has a beautiful color. The interior is beautiful and it has plenty of leg room. There is plenty of space in the trunk area. Beautiful all around.

Best Value for your Money

I simply love this SUV. It is roomy yet not to big. It gets great gas mileage around 33-34mpg @55-60 mph. It is stylish and looks nice. Really pleased!
