The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is on the small end of the popular compact crossover utility segment, though it has useful interior room and practicality for its size. It's only incidentally sporty, despite the name--but it will suit value-minded shoppers who prize its size. It's let down by its crude interior and noisy, unrefined operation at speed, but at a starting price around $20,000, it's clearly the price-leading play in the segment.

The new 2016 Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid keeps and expands on all the good points of the first-generation Volt, while fixing a number of the old car's quirks. As we wrote in September, "The new Volt's a great car, and brings practical electric drive to U.S. drivers without a shred of range anxiety."
