Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander is a solid option outside of the usual crossover SUV choices but is often forgotten for a reason.

Pros
Good base features
Large touchscreen standard
Available all-wheel drive across the range
Updated styling for 2019

Cons
Cheap interior feel
Overworked inline-4
Thirsty, underpowered V-6
Tight third row
Expensive active safety tech

Refreshed styling including new headlights.Steering and suspension tweaks for better ride comfort and handling.New rear-seat climate control vents.The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander is one of the least expensive SUVs you can buy with a third-row seat.

Pros
Generous list of standard features
Standard three-row seating

Cons
Slow, noisy acceleration with the base four-cylinder
Thirsty V6 is available only on the top-of-the-line GT
Third-row seat is pretty small
Limited Mitsubishi dealer network

For 2019, the Outlander receives a host of changes that include revised front-end styling and standard 18-inch wheels. Every model also has more supportive and comfortable front seats, upgraded interior trim, newly illuminated window controls, rear-seat climate-control vents, and an electric parking brake. Likewise, all gasoline-powered models have revised suspension and steering that Mitsubishi says has enhanced the handling and ride quality.

Pros
Affordable three-row transportation,
advanced plug-in hybrid powertrain,
quiet and relaxed ride.

Cons
Dull to drive,
abysmal infotainment system,
contentious front-end styling.

40-mpg-plus fuel economy
Plug-in version priced well

Cons
AWD unavailable
Sluggish acceleration at speed
No crash-test data yet
Plug-in range now only average

Pros
Magnificent fuel economy
Spacious, comfortable seats
Generous cargo capacity
Upscale cabin

Cons
Less athletic than rivals
Not available with AWD
High base price

By:

The most significant change for the 2018 Niro is the addition of lane keeping assist, replacing the previous lane departure warning system. It's included in the Advanced Technology package available on LX and EX trims, and it's standard on the top Touring trim.

PROS
Impressive fuel economy from the base trim model
One of the more affordable hybrids in the segment
Batteries are hidden under the rear seat and don't affect cargo space

CONS
Feature-laden Touring trim sacrifices fuel efficiency
Less cargo space than most rivals
Feels lazy when driving in the default Eco mode
All-wheel drive isn't offered despite crossover styling
