24 mpg city, 31 highway (manual 2WD); 25/31 (automatic 2WD); 24/29 (auto 4WD)
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.
The 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a subcompact footprint but a tall profile--and like most vehicles with this shape, it achieves pretty good city gas mileage but is somewhat disappointing on the highway, where aerodynamics aren't so ideal.With either the manual gearbox or the CVT, the Outlander Sport gets EPA city ratings in the mid-20s and highway ratings around 30 mpg.
The Outlander Sport may be an economical urban daily-driver but it's not an efficient long-distance road-tripper. In a mix of driving, including some short trips, we saw 24 mpg on average with a CVT-equipped Outlander Sport; yet even with the cruise control set to modest speeds we were unable to average 30 mpg on the highway.
The 2014 Outlander Sport is reasonably frugal in town but thirsty on the highway.
