The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Though the first-generation Outlander was often overlooked, the updated 2009 Mitsubishi Outlander has emerged as a well-rounded vehicle—and one of the sportiest-driving small crossovers. The 2008 Honda CR-V doesn't have hip style or performance on tap, but it has the security, utility, and frugality that many sensible moms want.
