2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

2020 Outlander Sport Photos
The 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a subcompact crossover that spars with some of the best-selling crossovers in the market.

The Outlander Sport gets a major refresh for 2020 with a new front-end look. Other changes include a larger 8.0-inch touchscreen, new switchgear for the climate control, and some additional standard safety equipment for the SE trim. The 5-speed manual has been dropped, leaving every Outlander Sport equipped with a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

That CVT is paired up with one of two 4-cylinder engines: a base 2.0-liter that makes 148 horsepower or an optional 2.4-liter unit that's good for 168 hp. Unlike the competition, neither engine benefits from turbocharging.

Front-wheel drive is standard on every trim. All-wheel drive is optional.

Fuel economy for the base engine is 24 mpg city, 30 highway, 27 combined when paired with front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive drops each of those numbers by 1 mpg. With the bigger 2.4-liter engine and all-wheel drive, those numbers drop to 23/28/25 mpg.

Both the IIHS and the government have yet to rate the updated Outlander Sport for crashworthiness, but history doesn't bode well for the aging crossover. Last year's tests resulted in a four-star overall rating from the feds, while the IIHS gave the little Mitsubishi their highest rating of good in only four of their six crash tests.

The good news is that the SE trim now comes standard with lane-departure warnings, forward-collision warnings with pedestrian detection, active lane control, blind-spot monitors, and automatic high-beam headlights. Automatic emergency braking remains optional.

Every Outlander Sport comes with a 5-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
