2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Fuel Economy

7.0
Fuel Economy
The 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a mix of small-car roots but a utility-vehicle profile, which combine to create a vehicle that essentially gets small-car fuel economy around town but can't do much better than a large sedan on the highway.

The CVT keeps consumption in check, too. EPA fuel economy ratings for the Outlander Sport with all-wheel drive are 24 mpg city, 29 highway, and over about 120 miles we managed to hit 24 mpg in a mix of driving, with most of it urban and suburban short trips.

That said, in a few short highway-cruising stints, even with the cruise control on, we had trouble even hitting 30 mpg in the Outlander Sport. On the positive side, its top gear ratio is nice and tall, keeping revs under 2,500 rpm at 75 mph.

The 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a pretty green vehicle for around town, but for road-tripping there are many more efficient options.
