The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander looks sporty, maneuvers easily, and is very space-efficient. All that's missing is the refined interior that the exterior suggests. A rakish crossover with a 260-horsepower four on tap, the Kia Sportage reboots its image on a few levels all at once.
