Expert Review


CARHP Editorial January 9, 2019

Mitsubishi ranks the US as one of its top markets in Priority and feels Compact SUV’s are the way to get a fair share in the market. The 2019 Outlander is Mitsubishi’s tool for achieving the target and has hence given the 2019 Version, a whole set of Features upgrade and facelift over its predecessors. The 2019 Outlander comes in a total of 4 trims and starts from $24,695 going over $33,195 for the Top of the Line GT Trim.

The Base ES Trim gets Features like a Big 7” Touchscreen Infotainment System, Dual Zone Climate Control and LED DRL’s, which makes it one of the most well loaded SUV’s in the segment.

Trim to Choose

Since a lot of Active Safety Features are missing in the first 2 trims, we would suggest the SEL Trim as the one to go for. It packs in a lot of modern features like Apple Car Play and Android Auto along with the Safety Features.

Engine

With three powertrains that include a class-exclusive PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) model, the Outlander has something for almost everyone—unless zippy acceleration and engine refinement are important, that isCaranddriver.com

 Engine and Transmission

The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander comes with 2 Engine options. The ES, SE and SEL Trims get a 2.4L Inline 4 Cylinder Naturally Aspirated Motor that belts out 166Hp at 6,000rpm and 162lbs-ft of Torque at 4,200rpm. This Motor is paired to a CVT Transmission that delivers power to the Front Wheels. This Engine feels very strained and runs out of juice when revved hard or pushed to the limits. The Pronounced Rubber band Effect from the CVT worsens the Case for this Engine and dampens the overall driving experience.

For people wanting a more enthusiastic performer have the option of going for the 3.0L V6 that belts out 224Hp at 6250rpm and 215lbs-ft at 3750rpm. This Engine is mated to a 6 Speed electronic Transmission and is only available in the Top of the Line GT Trim.

Acceleration

The Dull 2.4L Inline 4 Engine does not do well in terms of outright acceleration from a standstill. Rivals like the Mazda CX-5, Ford Escape and Kia Sorento offer a far better performance despite similar body structures and size.

In terms of Emission though, the Naturally Aspirated Unit of the Mitsubishi ranks pretty high when it comes to the least emission figures emitted by a compact SUV.

Ride and Handling

The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander coms with a reworked suspension and chassis design which, Mitsubishi designers say improves the riding experience inside the SUV. The Steering offers a lot of feedback and inspires confidence while taking turns at high speeds.

The Outlander isn’t the most comfortable SUV in its class but does offer adequate cushioning and bolstering for short trips. One of the highlights of the Outlander has to be its silent ride. The cabin offers good noise insulation from the Outside and the dull engine noise seeps in through only, when it’s revving past 5000rpm.

In terms of the handling, the Outlanders meets most expectations and does its best, to ensure a confidence inspiring handling on highways or city roads. The Tires offer good grip while cornering at decent speeds while they tend to offer little less grip Off-Road.

Braking

The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander has one of the smallest brake rotors in this comparison on the front. On the Rear however, it’s the other way around. This means that the pressure to impact balance isn’t the best but it tends to provide good stopping power when needed.

In terms of Brake Feel though, they tend to be spongy at times but they aren’t overly sensitive. In terms of stopping distances as well, the Mitsubishi stops from a 60MPH to 0MPH in 121ft, which is at par with the other SUV’s in the segment.

Fuel Economy

In the previous sections, we have seen that the 2.4Lengine of the Mitsubishi Outlander isn’t the most refined or powerful engine to drive in the segment. Mitsubishi has however done this to improve one of the more important parameters of the SUV, the MPG figures.

The Outlander offers a respectable 27MPG to the Gallon on an average. This, coupled with the massive 16.6Gallon Fuel Tank gives a Combined Average Range of around 415 Miles, which is one of the best in Class.

The Powerful 3.0L V6 motor however compromises the Fuel Efficiency in favor of a better performance. The V6 delivers 22MPG on an average and gives an overall range of 350Miles, which is still a respectable number.

Interior

While it isn't the most utilitarian car in its class, the Outlander does have some versatile features such as third-row seating and decent tow ratings–Edmunds.com

Seating and Comfort

One of the Main Highlights of the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander is its Seating Ability. The Outlander can seat 7 People, as it comes in a 7 Seater Configuration as standard. The 3Rd Row however is best suited for kids as they are quite cramped and compact in terms of the area they offer.

In terms of the Comfort, the Seats do a decent job of providing comfort to all the passengers in the cabin. We could however have loved a better cushioning of the seats and a higher Seating layout. Passengers seating at the front and 2md row, won’t complain much about the area on offer as it at par with the rest of the competition.

Infotainment

Mitsubishi has updated the Infotainment System of the New Outlander and added Apple Car Play and Android Auto in its existing Infotainment System as an option. A 7” Touchscreen System also comes as Standard across the Range.

However, this is whether the good points end. Intuitive and Easy To Use won’t be the first words that would come to your mind when you start using this infotainment system. They offer considerable amount of Lag while usage and becomes even cumbersome while changing the audio settings or connecting other devices.

The Following are the some of the Features that can be found in the Infotainment System of the Outlander

  • Android Auto and Apple Car Play Compatibility
  • 7” Touchscreen Infotainment System with Navigation
  • SiriusXM Radio with 3 Months Subscription
  • Bluetooth, Front and Rear USB Ports
  • Rockford Fosgate Music System
  • Bluetooth Telephony and Connectivity to Multiple devices

Interior Features

The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander comes with a good set of Standard Interior Features. It may not be the most utilitarian of the lot but it does pack some really usable features like Big Door Pockets, Center Console Cup Holders and more.

  • Dual Zone Climate Control System
  • Power Adjust Front Seats
  • Heated Front Seats
  • Rear Seat Infotainment System
  • Leather Upholstery
  • Leather Wrapped Steering Wheel
  • Keyless Ignition
  • Available 3 Rows of Seating

Cargo Capacity

Comparing with other Crossovers in the Segment, the Outlander offers a good amount of storage space behind its third row and ranks among the very few Crossovers in the segment that can boast of this fact.

From a common perspective, the Outlander offers around 34.2 cu. Ft of Space. This is among the highest in the segment and can take a lot of stuff with it. The Kia Sorento manages to beat the Outlander by a very small margin in terms of the Cargo space but that isn’t a substantial loss.

Exterior

Profile is the Outlander’s best angle, with a pleasing-if-anonymous crossover SUV shape–TheCarConnection.com

Design

The Exterior Design of the 2019 Outlander has seen some changes as compared to its previous year model.

Mitsubishi has added a lot of Chrome into the Front Fascia of the SUV that includes the Front Grill and some extent of the Bumper. 18” Alloy Wheels now come as standard.

The Rear End of the 2019 Outlander has also received some styling tweaks that includes a redesigned bumper and a lot of chrome additions.

Exterior Dimensions

The Mitsubishi Outlander ranks as one of the “Not so Small” compact crossovers in the segment.

Spanning over 184 inches in length, the Outlander does make you feel it’s presence from the outside. The 67.3 inch of Height allows more room to be liberated inside in terms of the headroom on offer.

One of the standout points of the 2019 Outlander, is its superb 8.5 inches of Ground Clearance. Mitsubishi has ensured that the Outlander doesn’t suffer any hiccups while traversing the road less taken by providing a good ground clearance. This allows the Outlander, to wade through Rocky Terrains easily and glide through big speed humps without much concerns of scraping the underbelly of the compact crossover.

Exterior Features

The Exteriors of the Mitsubishi Outlander has a good set of features that matches the competition and better them in some areas. Some of the Exterior Features have been listed below.

  • Rear View Camera
  • LED Daytime Running Lamps and Rear Tail Lights
  • Heated and Powered Outside Mirrors
  • 18” Alloy Wheels
  • Fog lamps
  • Power Glass Sunroof
  • Auto On/Off LED Headlamps
  • Shark Fin Antenna

Features like Rear Window Intermittent Wiper/Washer with Defroster and Roof Carrier come in Standard across all trims while Silver Roof Rails can be opted for only in the SEL and above trims.

Safety

The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander comes stacked, with Safety equipment and features that are offered in other rivals as well. We do however feel that the Standard Safety Equipment on offer could have been higher as the rivals offer those as standard.

Some Safety features include

  • ABS with ESC and Driveline Traction Control
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Tire Pressure Warning System
  • Multi View Camera System
  • Side Curtain, Front and Thorax Airbags
  • Blind Spot Warning and Lane Change Assist
  • LED Auto Headlamps
  • Forward Collision Mitigation
  • Adaptive Cruise Control

Competition

Mitsubishi Outlander vs Honda CR-V

There is no denying the Fact that the Honda CR-V is one of the Best SUV’s in the segment. It flaunts an easy to understand infotainment system and best in class storage space. The CR V additionally has a rich lodge that offers two lines of seating and has enough space to oblige grown-ups. The Outlander however offers the Luxury of allowing 7 people to sit inside it with relative ease and comfort. What also sets the Mitsubishi ahead of the Head in terms of the Standard equipment on offer, which is higher than CR-V.

Mitsubishi Outlander vs Mazda CX-5

The Mazda CX-5 is one of the most Sportiest SUV’s in the segment. The Mazda offers one of the Best 2nd Row Seating arrangement in the class as well. When it comes to the off road ability, both the SUV’s are nearly matched and have potent 4WD systems. The Outlander however trumps the CX-5 in terms of the creature comforts on offer as a Standard fitment, good gas mileage and an ability to tour with 7 people on board.

Mitsubishi Outlander vs Chevrolet Equinox

The Chevrolet Equinox is the American Answer to what is essentially a market dominated by European, Korean and Japanese SUV’s. The Equinox offers good fuel efficiency and way more space in the Interior for both the 1st Row and 2nd Row of passengers. The Outlander however can Seat 7 People in it and has a better equipment list in terms of creature comfort and safety as standard than the Chevy.

Final Verdict

With The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander, the company has tried to woo customers with its All New Styling on the Exteriors, Features on offer and Gas Mileage. The Outlander also offers one of the Most Safest cabins in the class and has been a Top safety pick for the IIHS for 2019 as well. The Infotainment System and the base 2.4L Engine are among the weakest points of the Outlander as other competitors offer a more powerful engine, with a lot more power and torque on tap. But with a good Gas MPG Figure, Decent Cargo Space, Stylish Exteriors and a Standard 7 Seater configuration, The Outlander certainly is one of the most practical SUV’s in the Segment.
