2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

The 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport was recently unveiled at the 2010 New York International Auto Show.  The Outlander Sport is already a hit overseas, where it is known as the Mitsubishi RVR in Asia and the Mitsubishi ASX (“Active Sport Crossover”) in Europe.  The new Outlander Sport is a condensed version of the Mitsubishi Outlander.   The streamlining of SUVs into more compact form is a popular automotive trend. 

The 5-seat Sport is 13.6 inches shorter and 440 pounds lighter than the Outlander.  It comes with a 2.0 liter, 148 horsepower, 4 cylinder MIVEC engine.  The vehicle is expected to get about 30 miles per gallon on the highway.  The Outland Sport is expected to be priced in base form in the $19,000-$20,000 range.  A five-speed manual will come standard on the ES model.  A six-speed magnesium paddle-shifted Continuously Variable Transmission will be available on the ES model and standard on the SE model.   The Outlander Sport will have available all-wheel drive. 

The Outlander Sport is part of Mitsubishi’s plan to reposition itself as a maker of smaller and more efficient cars.  The vehicle will get good fuel economy and produce low emissions.
