Seating space for up to seven; good 4-cylinder fuel economy; active-safety options; smooth ride; all-weather capability

Model Highlights

There are four different versions of the Mitsubishi Outlander for 2015: the ES FWD (front-wheel drive), the SE FWD, the SE S-AWC (all-wheel drive) and the GT S-AWC.

Among 4-cylinder models, the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander is offered with two different engines: a 166-horsepower, 2.4L 4-cylinder engine, or a 224-hp, 3.0L V6. Four-cylinder models include a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), while shifting in V6 models is handled by a conventional 6-speed automatic. If buyers want the V6, they need to get the top GT model.

The layout underneath the Outlander is like that of most crossovers in this class, with MacPherson struts in front and a multi-link rear suspension. A new electric power steering system helps provide good weighting and responsiveness and also reduces fuel consumption. EPA gas mileage ratings for the 4-cylinder models ranges up to 25 mpg city, 31 highway.

The Outlander isn't a serious off-roader, although it has enough toughness (and ground clearance) to get through areas that are somewhat loose and rocky. S-AWC models (with all-wheel drive) include an electronically controlled center coupling, with an open rear differential; the system is supplemented by an active front differential that helps get the torque split correct between front wheels--especially of help in low-traction situations like ice, snow and mud.

In all models, the second row can fit up to three, and it's 60/40 split, with the seatbacks folding forward for more cargo capability or reclining--and there are adjustments for sliding fore and aft as well. The third row can fit two, and it's 50/50 split, with a fold-flat mechanism. With both rows folded, the Outlander has up to 128.6 cubic feet of cargo space, which is enough to swallow pieces of furniture, or several large parcels.

Equipment included even on base ES models of the 2015 Outlander includes automatic climate control, rear-seat heater ducts, remote keyless entry, heated side mirrors, cruise control, steering-wheel audio controls and a 6-speaker sound system with 140 watts. Step up to the SE and it comes with dual-zone climate control, heated seats, a passive-entry system and touch-screen audio with a USB port, Bluetooth and HD Radio. Top of the line Outlander GT models come with HID headlamps, special side beltline trim and other items, while they can be optioned with a GT Premium Package that adds leather upholstery, a power sunroof, a remote tailgate, a power driver's seat and the top 710-watt Rockford Fosgate premium sound system. That upgraded audio system includes a 7-inch touch panel with voice commands, while the audio system in the base model includes a 6.1-inch touch screen.

On SE and GT models several active-safety technologies are included, such as Adaptive Cruise control, which will keep a set following distance behind the vehicle ahead; Forward Collision Mitigation, which will warn of vehicles or obstructions ahead and then automatically brake to help cut the severity of a collision; and Lane Departure Warning, which finds lane markings and warns the driver if he or she is veering out of the lane.

Model News

The Mitsubishi Outlander receives numerous small improvements for 2015. The interior has been spruced up with a leather wrapped steering wheel, a leather wrapped shift knob and some improved sound deadening. The outside of the Outlander features a new grill, new bumper trim and a bit more exterior chrome. Each trim level also receives its own improvements, contrasting stitching in the ES, new seating surfaces on the SE and a new 18-inch wheel design and LED taillights on the GT.

Value Writeup

The Outlander is in a crowded field, up against best-sellers such as the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Ford Escape and the Subaru Forester. Against these, the Outlander offers a comparable exterior but manages to pack seating for more people inside.

Interior space and fuel efficiency are both big strengths. Mitsubishi also says that the Outlander is one of the most fuel-efficient utility vehicles offered in the North American market with standard 7-passenger seating (it's rated up to 31 mpg highway).

The Outlander can tow up to 3,500 pounds, which should be plenty for a small boat or a couple of jet skis. Ground clearance for the Outlander is 8.5 inches, which should give it an easier time with snow than some other crossovers.

Overall Rollover Rating: * * * *
Dynamic Test Result: No Tip
Risk of Rollover: 18.5%

Note Regarding Driver Rating:

Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Note: Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
