The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Mitsubishi Outlander has a sportier look and feel than most crossover utes—and it gets better for 2010. The 2010 Subaru Forester may not be as powerful or well-equipped as its rivals, but it really shines in its more carlike dynamics and superior handling.
