Updated on: January 28, 2022

The redesigned 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander sees a dramatic improvement over the predecessor with more advanced tech, upgraded interior, and Land-Rover-inspired design. The 2022 Outlander three-row SUV deserves to be on the shopping list as it is upgraded from just everywhere. This includes three-row seating,  better handling, a more steering feel, and a comfortable ride. This new Outlander is based on the redesigned Nissan Rogue. Both share the same engine and some underpinnings still, Mitsubishi's touch is loud and clear. This three-row midsize Mitsubishi gets a 181-hp 2.5L inline-4 engine that returns a great fuel economy but leisure acceleration. The car is capable of towing 1,500 pounds

Price: The 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander has a starting price of $26,095, excluding the $1,195 destination charges. The base price of the 2022 Outlander is about average in the midsize category. The price range goes up to $35,345 for the range-topping SEL Launch Edition.

Mitsubishi also sells Outlander Sport and Outlander PHEV but they are a completely different story. The Outlander's cabin feels upscale and has more space than its predecessor, offering a third row of seating. That third row is cramped, so if you really need an SUV with a third-row look for alternatives like Honda Pilot. IIHS has regarded the 2022 Outlander as their Top Safety Pick+, which is really assuring. Coming to its competitors, this SUV directly competes with the likes of Volkswagen Tiguan, Honda CRV, and Toyota RAV4.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

This Outlander is massively better than its immediate predecessor- Edmunds

The redesigned Mitsubishi Outlander's exterior is stylish without being too gaudy while its interior feels upscale without looking too haughty. Mitsubishi has built the Outlander based on the Nissan platform and has adopted Rogue’s powertrain and various other bits. However, Mitsubishi has tuned it very differently. The new Outlander will challenge many compact crossovers in terms of sales. 

If you are interested in the new Outlander, you could lease it for $239 per month for a term of 36 months. You have to deposit $4,488 at the time of buying. There is also a finance option available at a 1.9% APR rate for up to 60 months. In terms of reliability, the new Outlander scored 82 out of 100 but its resale value is below average according to J.D. Power, probably due to Mitsubishi's poor after-sales service.

Buying Advice

Mitsubishi has spruced up the Outlander for 2022 with a seemingly never-ending list of features, and we must say, the SE trim is extremely well-equipped. This trim adds a ton of comfort and convenience features such as a 9-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay, a hands-free power tailgate, synthetic leather upholstery, LED fog lamps and the list goes on. As before, Mitsubishi Outlander SUV comes with an impressive powertrain warranty that lasts for 10 years for 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Features

The Outlander’s robust feature set and lengthy warranty give it excellent value- The Car Connection

The all-new 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander comes in a long trim lineup comprising 7 choices, namely ES, SE, Black Edition, SE Launch Edition (limited availability), SEL, SEL Launch Edition (limited availability), and top-range SEL Touring. The 2022 Outlander starts at an MSRP of $26,095 for the entry-level ES with FWD. That same Outlander ES with all-wheel drive (AWD), what Mitsubishi calls Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC), starts at $27,895. Mitsubishi also offers the base ES with the Convenience Package that adds 20-inch alloy wheels and the Mitsubishi Connect safety services at an extra cost of $1,000.

Mistubishi has packed their new Outlander with a lot of features but, you still get access to some noteworthy packages. The $2,700 Touring package equips the Outlander SEL with a heated steering wheel, a panoramic sunroof, a 10-speaker Bose stereo, a head-up display, and rear sunshades. The $2,300 Tech package on the SE adds a panoramic sunroof, a 10-speaker Bose stereo, and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.

Engine and Performance
8.0/10

Don’t ask too much of this powertrain and you’ll be happy enough calmly motoring around town- Cars.com

The 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander is motivated by a 2.5L inline-4 engine that sends 181 hp and 181 lb-ft. of torque to the front or all four wheels via a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Mitsubishi shares the engine with the new Nissan Rogue. The powertrain is smooth and refined but it grumbles when working hard. The CVT responds quickly to throttle inputs and will simulate gear changes for a more natural feel. The 2022 Outlander briskly accelerates off the line and feels lively around the town. With a standard drive mode selector, you can tailor how this Mitsubishi SUV behaves in different road conditions.

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander engine bay

The front-wheel-drive (FWD) Outlander gets five settings (Normal, Tarmac, Gravel, and Snow), while the 4-wheel-drive (4WD) Outlander gets all those plus a Mud mode. The Outlander may not be the sportiest SUV in the class but is extremely nimble. The handling is extremely improved over the previous version. Interestingly, the Outlander glides comfortably over rough surfaces even with the large 20-inch wheels. The steering is perfectly weighted and is quite responsive but it requires constant steering corrections. 

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander front driving view

Acceleration is not as brisk as it is on other competitors. The new Outlander takes 8.6 seconds to complete the 0-60 MPH run while the quarter-mile drag is covered in 16.5 seconds. There isn't simply enough oomph to give a driver confidence when passing or taking advantage of holes in traffic. It definitely needs a turbocharger. Mitsubishi has nicely tuned the brakes to deliver an impressive braking performance. In the brake test, the Outlander took 115 feet to stop from 60 MPH. For off-road adventure, the Outlander's 8.4 inches of ground clearance, various traction control modes, and all-wheel-drive system is good enough for the occasional excursions.

Owing to its low curb weight and turbocharged engine, the Honda CR-V is the quickest sprinter. The Toyota RAV4 comparatively makes more power but the power delivery isn't as refined as Honda's. The Volkswagen Taigun has the worst performance numbers here and that's mainly due to its sluggish transmission. 

Fuel Economy
7.0/10

Compared with a mechanically identical Nissan Rogue, the 2022 Outlander has lower fuel-economy ratings- CarAndDriver

In terms of fuel economy, the Mitsubishi Outlander cannot beat the segment leader but it is still fair. In the city, the Outlander returns 24 MPG while the highway estimate is 31 MPG with a combined mileage of 27 MPG. The combined mileage drops down by 1 MPG if you opt for the AWD system. 

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander front driving view

The Outlander is a large vehicle but it gets a small 14.5-gallon fuel tank. When the regular gas is filled at the tank's capacity, the Outlander is able to deliver 348 miles in the city and 450 miles on a highway, which equates to 392 miles combined. AWD variants bring down the range to 377 miles.

The Honda CR-V outshines in this field with an impressive mileage of 30 MPG combined. The Toyota RAV4's fuel economy is very similar to the CR-V but it delivers a better range, owing to its slightly larger fuel tank. The Volkswagen Tiguan ranks below the Outlander in terms of fuel efficiency. 

Interior
6.0/10

Slide inside and about five seconds is all it takes to realize this is a whole new breed of Mitsubishi, and it's seriously nice- Cnet

The interior of the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander is beautifully laid out and it surprisingly looks elegant and subtle. Since this is a new generation, there have been ample changes. The color schemes, materials, design flow, and technologies used have all changed drastically. The overall build of the interior is very classy and at the same time very sleek and flowy. You will not find anything out of place anywhere. The dashboard is very well laid out with minimal use of hard plastics and a proper button layout.

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander dashboard

The new 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander is 0.6 inches longer than the previous model, with a wheelbase that has increased by 1.4 inches. This, together with an extra couple of inches of width, makes the new cabin roomier with an extra inch of legroom front and rear. The Outlander continues to be sold as a 3-row crossover SUV with seven seats. Its seats are treated with cloth, leatherette, and genuine leather upholsteries depending on the trim level. The headroom has increased, courtesy of the increase in height of the vehicle. The first two rows of seats are spacious and can easily accommodate grown adults. However, the third row is practically unusable and super-cramped.

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander infotainment system

On the technology front, you get a standard 8-inch touchscreen while a 9-inch display is available on other trims. Both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are supported but the wireless connectivity of the latter is available on higher trims. The system is simple to use and quite snappy. You can fit this vehicle with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10.8-inch head-up display. The buttons and controls offered on the dash are very easy to access and have simple operations.

The Outlander offers a cargo capacity of 11.7 cu-ft. behind the third row. Since the third row is non-usable for adults, it is better to leave it stowed, which gets you 33.5 cu-ft. For maximum cargo space, fold the second-row seats using the cargo levers and you get a remarkable 79.7 cu-ft., which beats all other competitors in this segment. If you get an Outlander with a panoramic sunroof, the maximum cargo space is limited to 78.3 cu-ft. Highlights of the Outlander's interior are:

  • 8-way power driver's seat
  • 4-way power passenger's seat
  • Heated front seats
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror

 Mitsubishi sought to give this compact 7-seat SUV a powerful presence and functionality- Kelly Blue Book

The exterior styling of the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander is new from the ground and it looks way more attractive than the previous generation. Upfront, you get a three-element lighting approach. The LED DRLs and turn signals are at the top, the fog lamps are on the bottom and the headlights are housed on the Outlander's chubby cheeks. The hood design has also changed from a curvier circular-looking hood opening to a sharper, quadrilateral type opening. The dynamic shield grille is a little overdone but the rest of the front-end design is beautifully executed.

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander three-quarter view

Mitsubishi has definitely added SUV styling cues without turning this crossover into a caricature of itself. From the side view, the black windshield pillars give the Outlander a flatting roof appearance. The shoulder line helps inject character into the profile view. The Outlander gets 18-inch wheels as standard but 20-inch wheels are standard on other trims. Dimension-wise, the new Outlander is a bit wider and taller than the outgoing model. Its high ground clearance is essential for tackling off-roads. The design at the rear is kept simple and clean.

The Volkswagen Tiguan boasts the longest wheelbase which translates into the only usable third row of seating in the competition. The low curb weight of the Honda CR-V aids in quicker acceleration than its rivals. The Toyota RAV4 is the shortest vehicle with its length measuring 180.9 inches. Therefore, maneuvering it at tight turns wouldn't be an issue. Other exterior highlights include:

  • LED auto high-beam headlights
  • LED fog lamps
  • LED DRLs

Safety
8.0/10

The Outlander comes with a comprehensive suite of advanced driving aids- Edmunds

Only IIHS paid attention to the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander. It gave the highest Top Safety Pick+ award as it performed extremely well in all crash tests. On the flip side, NHTSA didn't rate the new Outlander and we are not considering the outgoing model's ratings as the 2022 model is now in its fourth generation. 

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander front driving view

Mitsubishi has gone a long way when it comes to safety technologies. The new 2022 Outlander has significantly more advanced driver-assist technology as a part of Mi-Pilot Assist, standard on the SE and above. The Mi-Pilot Assist suite of technologies includes active cruise control with stop and go, lane-keeping assist, lane-centering, and traffic-sign recognition. This semi-autonomous system helps to reduce driver stress on long highway road trips. Few other driver aids are available on higher trims includes:

  • Blind-spot assist 
  • Front & rear automatic emergency braking 
  • Forward collision mitigation with pedestrian detection
  • Lane keep assist 
  • Lane departure prevention 
  • Traffic sign recognition 
  • Adaptive cruise control with stop & go
  • Rear cross-traffic alert 
  • Driver attention alert
  • Rear parking sensors
  • Rear seat alert
  • Head-up display

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander vs 2022 Volkswagen Tiguan

Although the Volkswagen Tiguan is facelifted for 2022, the Outlander's exterior is sturdier. Both are similarly powered but the Tiguan suffers from lazy acceleration. The interior on the Tiguan looks premium but lacks appeal. On the other hand, the Outlander's interior is rich in features and tech but its third row is crampy. The Outlander wins more points with better fuel efficiency, cargo space, and more standard driver aids. 

2022 Volkswagen Tiguan

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander vs 2022 Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V has been leading all the charts for a pretty long period now and is a very dominating car in terms of its engine, reliability, and practicality. The CR-V has offers excellent gas mileage and better acceleration than the Outlander and does not feel sluggish. Unlike the Outlander, the CR-V is a 5-seater but it is spacious. Its main weaknesses are irritating infotainment controls. few standard features and standard safety techs. 

2022 Honda CR-V

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander vs 2022 Toyota RAV4

The Toyota RAV4 is viewed as a rather promising vehicle but it falls behind in some areas when compared to the new Outlander. Its acceleration is certainly better and it feels much engaging to drive. It also is ahead of the Outlander with better fuel economy and obviously, outstanding reliability. The cargo space in the Outlander is excellent and its interior styling beats the RAV4 in all aspects. Still, the RAV4 seems a better option. 

2022 Toyota RAV4
Final Verdict

After looking at all the points it can be inferred that Mitsubishi has put a significant amount of time, effort, brain, and money into the development of the new Outlander. This clearly shows that the company wants to stand up to the mark and deliver products with bespoke quality and engineering. There is no doubt in the fact that the new Outlander is better than the older generation by a thousand times, and it is now set to tackle fiercer opponents and even emerge victoriously. Apart from the sluggish engine, the CVT gearbox, and the non-usable third row, there are no faults in the vehicle that can be pinpointed. Rugged and sharp design, elegant interior, superb handling, good road presence, and a competitive price bracket make it a very competitive product in the market. Mitsubishi is definitely going to see a rainbow at the end of the road now!
