2021 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport vs. Its Competition

2021 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Small crossover SUVs are a dime a dozen, so there’s no reason to narrow down to just one.

The Subaru Crosstrek was one of the first and it remains one of the best with its surprisingly spacious interior, loads of safety gear, and reasonable price tag.

Kia’s Seltos is stylish and can be fun in turbo forms.

The Hyundai Kona has its own style that may not appeal, but there’s no denying the quality safety and tech features.

The Nissan Rogue Sport is a frugal choice with a comfy enough interior.

And don’t forget about the Jeep Renegade, which can be more rugged than its rivals with optional off-road gear.
