    If you are in the market for a small SUV that has plenty of power and updated tech features, then the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is the way to go. Fresh off of a 2020 model year redesign, this subcompact five-seater is perfect for singles, couples, and small families. With ample space for toting around your belongings and a capable all-wheel drive system, you will find this vehicle to be both practical and fun to drive while still costing less than larger alternatives like the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross or Outlander.

    With all five seats in use, the Outlander Sport offers 21.7 cubic feet of space in the back, which is large enough to fit groceries, shopping bags, luggage, or sports gear. However, you can always fold the second row of seating down to gain access to the maximum storage area. Measured at 49.5 cubic feet, you can utilize this area for just about anything you want to move around. Did you just buy a new piece of furniture? Simply stick it in the back and drive it home! The 2021 Outlander Sport has all the utility of an SUV with the efficiency and easy handling of a sedan.

  • Performance

    When it comes to performance, the competition in the compact crossover category is steep. This is why the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has multiple powertrain options for a variety of different driving styles. Based on the trim level you choose, you can find an ideal option for your daily driving needs.

    Efficiency and Reliability

    With six trim levels to choose from, the first five - the S, ES, LE, and SE - are all powered by the same engine. This 2.0-liter 4-cylinder motor is coupled with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and comes standard with front-wheel drive. You can also opt for Mitsubishi's All-Wheel Control setup for four-wheel traction in all weather conditions. Generating 148 hp and 145 lb-ft of torque, the base engine is strong enough to handle some off-road adventures while still being small enough to get great gas mileage in the city. You can expect to get about 27 MPG combined (24 city/30 highway) with this engine option, making it a great way to save gas on your daily commute.

    More Power on Tap

    If you decide to buy the top-of-the-line GT trim of the 2021 Outlander Sport, it will come with an entirely different powertrain. Growling under the hood is a 20-percent larger 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine with standard All-Wheel Control technology. It produces 168 hp and 167 lb-ft of torque, giving you superior acceleration and more authority on the highway. Since it is a bit more powerful and comes standard with all-wheel drive, you can expect a slightly lower fuel economy rated at 25 MPG combined (23 city/28 highway). Still, that's not much of a trade-off for the extra muscle, especially if you love off-roading or spend a lot of time merging and passing on the highway.

  • Exterior and Interior

    Available in eight different exterior paint colors, the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is quite a looker. With an athletic build and aggressive face, this ride's recently-refreshed looks will have heads turning everywhere you go. Let's break down the exterior styling differences by trim for simplicity.

    Trim Options

    Even the base S trim comes with various features designed to make life easier on the roads. Full LED exterior lighting pierces through the darkness to provide you with optimized visibility no matter what the conditions are outside. Rain-sensing windshield wipers turn on instantly at the first drop of rain to keep your field of vision clear, and heated side mirrors prevent ice buildup in the winter. The SE trim is largely similar, with the addition of LED foglights to help you out in low-visibility situations.

    While the LE doesn't have any significant exterior changes to note, you will find a few added cosmetic features. The black grille, side mirrors, and alloy wheels add a sporty flair to this trim, accenting the already striking lines of the Outlander Sport. The BE takes this even further, with red exterior accents and a large roof spoiler.

    The SE trim adds some bright chrome accents and will likely be your favorite option if the blacked-out look of the mid-trims is not to your taste. Finally, the top-tier GT model adds roof rails. While that may not sound like a lot, it can make a major difference when you go camping. If you are bringing the family along, you may need extra space to store luggage or recreational toys like bicycles and kayaks. The roof rails help with that.

    Color Options

    Before moving on to the next category, let's take a quick glance at the available paint colors. As we mentioned briefly before, there are eight to choose from, starting with classic shades such as Labrador Black Pearl, Alloy Silver Metallic, Mercury Gray Metallic, Diamond White Pearl, and Red Diamond. If you prefer to have an SUV with more personality, then you can opt for the more fun shades such as Oak Brown Metallic, Octane Blue, or Sunshine Orange Metallic. No matter which color you choose, the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport will look great in your driveway.


    Slipping behind the wheel of a new 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is an experience all on its own. Loaded with cool features on even the base trim, you will be hard-pressed to find something you don't love about this nifty SUV. Let's break down the interior features by trim level to see what's inside.

    The base model comes with a height-adjustable driver's seat and 60/40 split-folding rear seats for configuring the cabin however you see fit. For your comfort, automatic climate control has been installed as well. To prevent disorienting glare from vehicles traveling behind you at night, the auto-dimming mirror makes it easier on your eyes. As for infotainment, the interface uses a standard 7-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth connectivity. You can make calls, send text messages, and listen to music through the 4-speaker stereo without taking your hands off of the wheel. For charging, you can utilize the USB port.

    Higher Trims, More Features

    The LE trim adds several luxurious upgrades, including a leather-wrapped steering wheel, shift knob, and parking brake lever. The front seats are heated for comfort during the winter months, and an extra USB port has been installed for another rider to charge along the way. The infotainment touchscreen has been enlarged to 8-inches, and satellite radio provides you with a plethora of entertainment options. Finally, advanced smartphone connectivity via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto has been brought onto the playing field. These features enable you to use the infotainment system like your smartphone - that includes using certain apps hands-free.

    Moving up to the SE, you will immediately notice the biggest change inside is keyless ignition. This high-tech feature gives the cabin a more futuristic feel and lets you keep your keys in your pocket. Also, the stereo gets two more speakers for a total of six. Finally, the top-of-the-line GT model boasts simulated leather upholstery. Soft-touch surfaces make the cabin more comfortable for long rides.

  • Safety

    The 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport comes standard with some great safety features. You don't have to break the bank in order to be protected when you're behind the wheel. Let's take a peek at what each trim level has to offer in terms of safety systems.

    Driver-Assist Features

    Every trim comes standard with automatic high beams that will toggle off when another vehicle approaches. Also, forward collision mitigation with pedestrian detection will detect any obstacle in your path and alert you to take evasive action. If no input is given by you, then the automatic braking systems will be triggered to bring the SUV to a complete stop before a crash occurs. Finally, the last standard safety feature is lane departure warning. If your vehicle begins to drift outside your designated lane, you will be notified to correct your course.

    Opting for the SE or GT trim will bring some additional valuable features. They come standard with blindspot monitoring that keeps track of other vehicles when they come up beside you. If a fellow driver enters your blind spot, you will be alerted that it is unsafe to change lanes at the present time. Another upgrade comes in the form of rear cross-traffic alert. This system monitors the area behind your vehicle as you back out of a tight or crowded parking space, alerting you if there is any oncoming traffic approaching from either side.
