The 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport isn't a true rival to the heavyweights in the class: Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, or Ford Escape.
The Outlander Sport isn't refined enough, nor does it offer enough options to keep up with the leaders in the class.
The Nissan Juke can be had with a similar manual transmission, but we've found that model to be more fun to drive.
The Jeep Compass is a similar budget pick, and with similar faults to the Outlander Sport.
The Kia Sportage is all-new, but its fuel economy is a letdown.
The Crosstrek has its powertrain faults, but one of our picks in the class.
