2010 Mitsubishi Outlander ES SUV

2010 Mitsubishi Outlander Review

(3 Stars)  Solid performer with great warranty

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
A few years ago, the Outlander stepped into one of the most hotly contested of product segments, the small SUV market. Long dominated by the likes of the Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV4, the Outlander remains, despite Mitsubishis attempts to improve upon it, in the back of the pack. It offers the same All Wheel Drive, commanding view of the road, and cargo space that consumer look for, while setting itself apart somewhat due to its unique style. To its credit, the current Outlander solves some of the knocks against it by offering more power and sportier handling though the tradeoff for that sporty handling is ride stiff enough to leave many unhappy. Interior space remains an issue, with cramped second seat and nearly unusable third seat dimensions.

There are two engines available for the Outlander. A 2.4 liter four cylinder developing 168 HP and a 3.0 liter V-6 good for 230HP. Continuously Variable Transmission or CVT is standard with the four cylinder engine. The models equipped with the V-6 get a more traditional 6 speed automatic to shift gears for them.
