Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is old, crude, slow, and far from fuel-efficient, though it is cheap; buyers can likely do better.

Pros
Low price
Passably attractive lines
Loading people, goods is easy
So about that price…

Cons
Grim interior
Crude, slow powertrains
Low fuel-economy ratings
Active-safety gear missing from most trims

For 2018, the Mitsubishi Outlander receives updated styling front and rear, minor interior enhancements, and changes said to reduce cabin noise. There are new features this year as well. Every Outlander Sport now has a touchscreen display, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration is included on most trim levels.

PROS
Well-equipped for the price
Generous warranty coverage surpasses that of many rivals

CONS
Raucous drone while accelerating (especially with 2.0-liter engine)
Transmission is aggravating due to slow responses
Many interior materials look and feel cheap
Ride quality is jarring on bumpy roads

The 2018 Mazda CX-5 ranked #2 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Mazda CX-5 has a score of 8.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 27 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Excellent handling
Comfortable, supportive seats
Upscale interior

Cons
Cumbersome infotainment system
Unimpressive cargo capacity

By: 
usnews.com

As long as cargo space isn’t your main reason for buying a compact crossover, the 2018 Mazda CX-5 is an excellent, fun-to-drive choice.

Pros
Attractive styling inside and out
Poised chassis, communicative steering
Engine changes bode well for mpg
Good value, especially considering high spec level
Rear seats fold flat

Cons
Frustrating infotainment setup
Light cargo volume
Short on refinement

By:

The 2018 Mazda CX-5 largely carries over from the previous model year, when it was extensively redesigned. New for 2018 are such standard features as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. Also new is cylinder-deactivation technology intended to improve fuel economy slightly. The 2.5-liter engine automatically shuts down the two outside cylinders at cruising speeds to maximize efficiency. Last year's Grand Select trim level has been discontinued for 2018.

PROS
Keen handling and steering make the CX-5 enjoyable to drive
Attractive and upscale cabin for a premium ownership experience
Stays quiet at highway speeds

CONS
Not as powerful as some rivals
