The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander isn’t the distinctive, sportier outlier that the previous version was, but it’s now a better pick for frugal families who want seven seats and lots of features for the money. The sharp-looking 2014 Subaru Forester gets a lot more comfortable inside, and offers some useful driving aids and safety electronics.
