The 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport doesn't have enough ratings to earn a Valid Total Car Score.
First introduced three years ago, the Outlander Sport goes through a freshening for 2013 that includes one major change: Production of the five-seat crossover vehicle has moved from Japan to Mitsubishi’s factory in Normal, Illinois.
The American-made Outlander Sport is recognizable by a revised front bumper and grille, a new rear bumper, black side sills and the fitting of 18-inch alloy wheels across all models.
Under the skin, the four-link rear suspension has been retuned for improved ride comfort. And while the 2.0-liter engine carries over from previous models, the continuously variable transmission (CVT) has been recalibrated to improve acceleration and shift feel. Plus the base ES models can now be ordered with all-wheel-drive powertrains.
The 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a four-door, five-passenger crossover vehicle that’s available in ES and SE trim levels and front- or all-wheel-drive powertrains.
All Outlander Sport models are powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 148 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. The engine can be mated to either a five-speed manual or continuously variable transmission (CVT), the latter fitted with column-mounted paddle shifters.
The base ES model comes well equipped with features that include 18-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, cruise control, power accessories, keyless entry, a tilt/telescope steering wheel, and a four-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system equipped with Mitsubishi’s FUSE system that allows hands-free operation of a cell phone or iPod.
Stepping up to the SE model brings HID headlamps, pushbutton start, automatic climate control, heated front seats, rain-sensing wipers and an upgraded audio system with six speakers and satellite radio.
The Outlander Sport can also be equipped with option packages that add a navigation system, a rear-view camera, a panoramic glass roof, a 710-watt Rockford-Fosgate sound system, LED interior lighting, aluminum and leather interior trim and cargo storage accessories.
The EPA has not yet released its fuel economy ratings for the 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, but the maker expects highway fuel economy of 31 mpg.
