For the 2015 model year, Mitsubishi Motors' perennial best-seller – the eye-catching Outlander Sport 5-passenger compact crossover – receives some key aesthetic and engineering improvements to help maintain its reign as the company's #1-selling model.
The very capable MIVEC variable valve-timing-equipped 148 horsepower DOHC 2.0-liter-based 4-cylinder drivetrain also receives numerous design enhancements to further boost its performance.
What's more, rated by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) as a "Top Safety Pick" the previous three model years, the Outlander Sport is also one of the safest compact crossover/SUV models.
Available in either 2WD or 4WD – Mitsubishi Motors' acclaimed driver-selectable, electronically-controlled All-Wheel Control (AWC) four-wheel drive system – and with a solid-shifting 5-speed manual (ES 2WD model) or the sophisticated CVT transmission, every 2015 Outlander Sport model comes equipped with a plethora of important safety features and technologies: seven (7) air bags; Active Stability Control (ASC) with Hill Start Assist (HSA); Traction Control Logic (TCL); a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS); anti-lock braking system (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist.
An additional layer of occupant protection is afforded by Mitsubishi Motors' advanced Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) patented safety body construction system that absorbs energy to help provide protection to the vehicle's occupants.
Every 2015 Outlander Sport includes one of the best protection plans in the entire auto industry: 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty; 5-year/60,000-mile fully-transferable new vehicle limited warranty; 7-year/100,000-mile anti-corrosion/perforation limited warranty; and 5-year/unlimited miles roadside assistance.
