2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Review
Written by Anqoinette Crosby
If you’re living in an urban area, the proficient 2019 Outlander Sport makes city driving extremely manageable, particularly when it comes to negotiating traffic congestion.
The budget-friendly Outlander Sport also offers a no-frills, but functional cabin with easy-to-use controls that are logically arranged. Its manually adjustable seats are swathed in cloth, but you do have the option of upgrading to a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a shift knob and heated front seats.
The 2019 model year finds Outlander Sport offered in four trim levels: ES, LE, SE, and GT. The GT package supplants 2018’s SEL model. All trims come with an infotainment system that features a seven-inch touch screen, Bluetooth, HD Radio, and a USB port.
Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality are standard across the board as well—except for the base ES trim. A six-speaker audio system and satellite radio are also available for your listening enjoyment. Other available hardware include push-button start, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.
With seating for up to five people, the subcompact SUV offers plenty of space for passengers, pets and parcels. The Outlander Sport gives you 21.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. If you need more room, it more than doubles to 49.5 cubic feet with the second row folded down. An added convenience is the low cargo floor which makes it less of a hassle to load your things in and out of the Mitsubishi.
With the base engine and front-wheel drive, the Outlander Sport gets about 24 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.
Pricing for the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport starts at $20,945.
