The 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is essentially a shorter take on the Outlander crossover utility vehicle, while keeping height and width about the same. That might sound like a recipe for disaster—a la Pontiac Aztek—but the formula works.

Thanks to some toning-down of the Outlander's rugged cues, the Outlander Sport looks more like a tall hatch than a slightly softer, lower-profile utility vehicle; but it depends on the angle. The blunt, sharklike front end looks just as good here as it does in the Outlander and Lancer family, and from pretty much any angle in front, it looks very nicely proportioned. The sheetmetal has a bit more excitement than that of Mitsubishi's other vehicles, with a gradually rising beltline crease that serves to interrupt the otherwise slab-sided look.

From the back, the Outlander Sport could be taken quite differently; it looks a little more bulbous and chunky, and we wished the designers would have given it a less anonymous tail to match the bold front.

Inside, the look is familiar; the layout of the dash is basically the same as that of the Lancer, though lifted slightly, and dash and door trims tend to look dark and sporty—if a bit drab.

Conclusion

The 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport doesn't forge any new ground in its styling or design, but it has the same good-looking front end as the Lancer and Outlander.

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.
