For 2013, Mitsubishi has introduced a number of subtle changes to help make the Outlander Sport look and feel a little more sophisticated and refined. In front there's a redesigned fascia, along with a new grille and fog lamp design. The rear bumper design is also new, and the side sills are now black. The doors also get new chrome trim inside and out. Also inside are new seating fabrics, and a higher-grade sound insulation brings a quieter cabin overall. Sound quality for the Premium Audio System has been improved as well, with new high-performance speakers. Meanwhile, the Outlander Sport gets substantial tuning changes that should help it drive a bit better: The rear suspension has been retuned; so has the electric power steering, which now transmits a little more steering feel. And the continuously variable automatic transmission has a new calibration for a smoother shift feel. Otherwise a new ES 4WD model is new to the lineup and offers the All-Wheel Control system at a lower price than the SE 4WD. SiriusXM satellite radio and heated front seats now come standard on the SE model; 18-inch alloy wheels come standard on all models; and two new colors, White Pearl and Quick Silver, join the palette.
Great maneuverability and parking ease; all-weather capability with all-wheel drive; roomy, versatile layout; safety features; affordability and value
The 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport offers the convenience of a crossover utility vehicle in a footprint that's smaller than most compact sedans--making it extremely easy to park and maneuver. The Outlander Sport has an attractive package for small families, with relatively good fuel efficiency and a strong set of safety features. With this year's improved standard equipment and appearance enhancements, it's an impressive value for the money.
