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.
