The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Outlander Sport is a pleasant, nimble, and versatile runabout for the city, but road noise and a sluggish powertrain make it a less-than-ideal pick if you do a lot of highway driving. Kia hits game reset, and gives the 2011 Sportage an appealing new look and feel.
