Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

Pros
Inexpensive
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 2018 Lexus RX Hybrid ranked #3 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Lexus RX Hybrid has a score of 8.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 30 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Excellent fuel economy
Roomy, comfortable seats

Cons
Frustrating infotainment system
Subpar cargo capacity

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Lexus RX 450h is less expensive than last year, but some features that were standard are now optional. These include the sunroof, roof rails, heated and ventilated front seats, driver-seat memory settings, navigation system and blind-spot monitoring. The new Premium package adds some of these features back in, while others are sold as stand-alone options.

PROS
Impeccably crafted and attractively designed cabin
Excellent fuel economy for a luxury crossover
Supremely quiet
Appealing ride and handling balance with F Sport package

CONS
Relatively slow acceleration
Below-average cargo capacity
Optional tech interface is distracting to use

By: 
edmunds.com

RX 450hL hybrids have a lower-output V-6, batteries, and motors that power the rear wheels for a through-the-road, all-wheel-drive powertrain. The continuously variable transmission saps the life out of its delivery, but it’s smooth.

Pros
Bracing design
Swift acceleration
Broad range of road manners
Hybrid's high gas mileage
High-tech safety standard

Cons
That polarizing sheet metal
Gets expensive in a hurry
Firm F Sport ride
Gas-only mileage just average
