For a basic vehicle with no apparent luxury aspirations, the 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has an impressive list of standard equipment. Air conditioning, steering-wheel audio controls, remote keyless entry, and a 140-watt sound system are all standard, and the SE upgrades to automatic climate control, heated front seats and mirrors, and the FUSE Bluetooth hands-free system.
If you can look past the Outlander Sport's boomy interior and just-adequate powertrain performance, it stands out as quite a deal—especially for the base front-wheel-drive model, at $19,275 including destination.
But even with the $1,800 Premium Package, the Outlander Sport SE prices in the mid-twenties and includes a panoramic sunroof, Rockford Fosgate premium audio with subwoofer, Sirius satellite radio, a 6-CD changer, and black roof rails.
There aren't many standout features here, but considering the low price tag—even fully loaded—the 2011 Outlander Sport offers lots of value for the dollar.
