The 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is another year older and another step behind its competitors in every area but price.

Pros

Reasonably stylish
Spacious interior
Larger touchscreen

Cons
Noisy and slow
Short on standard safety tech
Subpar fuel economy
Lackluster quality

The 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport comes with front wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: continuously variable-speed automatic.Refreshed exterior design.New ES Convenience package includes new, larger touchscreen.Midlevel SE trim adds advanced safety features.

Pros
Well-equipped for the price
Excellent warranty coverage

Cons
Ride quality is rough over bumpy roads
Many interior materials look and feel cheap to the touch
Transmission is aggravating due to slow responses
Raucous drone while accelerating, especially with 2.0-liter engine

Though it's based on the same platform that it's used since 2011, the Outlander Sport did get marked improvements for 2020. Restyled inside and out, it sheds some of the baby pudge from its old styling by trading soft edges for sharper, more deliberate lines, especially in its nose and headlamps. There's a new 18-inch wheel design and LED headlights, taillights, and daytime running lights across the range. The interior gets new climate-control knobs and there's an inch added to its infotainment screen on some trims, upping it to 8.0 inches.

Pros
Refreshed look, good warranty, relatively low price.

Cons
Lethargic base engine, no manual transmission, still not great inside.

The Niro isn't our favorite car to drive, but it's perfect for drivers who care as much about fuel efficiency as they do about their budget.

Pros
Efficiently rated up to 52 mpg,
affordable,
practicality of a crossover.

Cons
Some trims lack basic amenities,
uninspiring performance,
plug-in hybrid has limited EV range.
