Expert Quotes:

24 mpg city, 31 highway (manual 2WD); 25/31 (automatic 2WD); 24/29 (auto 4WD)
U.S. EPA

We did manage 25 miles per gallon in suburban driving with a fairly heavy right foot, and we averaged 29 mpg on the highway, by the way.
Winding Road




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.

Conclusion

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

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
