The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.6
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. With up to 260 horsepower on tap and styling that's suitably athletic, the 2014 Kia Sportage shows that practical compact crossover wagons don't need to be so stodgy.
