Pros
Well equipped for the price
Excellent warranty coverage

Cons
The ride is rough over bumpy roads
Many interior materials look and feel cheap

After the previous model year underwent a transformative facelift, the 2021 Outlander Sport receives a handful of new features. All models now have automatic high-beams, forward-collision warning with pedestrian detection, and lane-departure warning. The base model also now has LED fog lights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The LE trim gains black 18-inch wheels, a black grille and door mirrors, and a Limited Edition badge. Inside, the upholstery now has red contrast stitching.

Pros
Available all-wheel drive,
standard active-safety features,
noteworthy powertrain warranty.

Cons
Lacks refinement,
bargain-basement interior,
pricier than many nicer alternatives.
