Last year, Mitsubishi completely redesigned its Outlander compact crossover into its fourth generation. That change was a long time coming, bringing standard three-row seating and, as you can see, styling that makes a stronger impression than the outgoing model.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
For 2023, there are no changes to the Outlander; Mitsubishi has added an all-new Outlander PHEV to the lineup, but it’s covered in a separate buyer’s guide entry.
Mitsubishi offers the Outlander in ES, SE, LE, LE Premium, SEL, GT, and GT Premium. All are powered by a 2.5L four-cylinder engine, a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), and all-wheel drive.
ES trim comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, heated side mirrors, a front wiper de-icer, and auto on/off LED headlights with washers. Inside, there are heated front seats, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, and a 7.0-inch driver info display, dual-zone A/C, and six-speaker audio. Standard safety features include blind spot monitoring, forward collision mitigation, rear automatic braking, lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, driver attention alert, and automatic high beams.
SE gains a heated steering wheel, a panoramic roof, power tailgate, passive keyless entry, three-zone A/C, LED fog lights, power-folding side mirrors, and silver roof rails.
LE gains 20-inch wheels, adaptive cruise control, a 9.0-inch touchscreen, navigation, and a multi-view camera system. An LE Premium upgraded adds faux-suede upholstery, and a power driver’s seat.
SEL builds on LE Premium with quilted leather upholstery, reverse-tilt side mirrors, a power passenger seat, heated rear seats, a 12.3-in digital gauge display, and rain-sensing wipers.
GT brings a 10-speaker stereo, upgraded headlights, auto-levelling headlights, highway driving assist, wireless phone charging, a hands-free tailgate, active blind spot assist, lane departure prevention, head-up display, and rear door sunshades. A GT Premium upgrade adds semi-aniline two-tone leather upholstery.
Mitsubishi’s fuel consumption estimates for the Outlander are 9.7/7.9 L/100 km (city/highway).
The Outlander’s competitors include the Chevrolet Equinox, Volkswagen Tiguan, Kia Sportage, Toyota RAV4, GMC Terrain, Nissan Rogue, Honda CR-V, Hyundai Tucson, Ford Escape, and Mazda CX-50.
