The 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE AWC

The 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport: a high content, low price compact SUV

The compact sport utility vehicle segment is packed full of popular models but the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is one that shouldn’t be overlooked by prospective shoppers as it carries a low price and a surprising number of amenities even in lower level trimlines.

The Mitsubishi brand has seen better days in the US market but the company has put a tremendous amount of R&D (and stock) in their current sport utility vehicle lineup and that is a point illustrated well by the 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. While the Outlander Sport may be overshadowed by stronger selling models like the Ford Escape and the Honda CR-V, the fact that fully loaded Outlander Sport costs only slightly more than the entry level 4WD Escape and slightly less than the entry level 4WD CR-V while also achieving similar fuel economy should be reason enough for new SUV shoppers to check out the Outlander Sport. Our loaded up 2012 Outlander Sport carried a sticker price of $28,155 which includes the top of the line SE AWC package, a CVT transmission, the premium package and the navigation package. This loaded price of the Outlander Sport is similar to the pricing of the mid-level Ford Escape and Honda CR-V, before you add any options to those two models.
