2010 Mitsubishi Outlander Review Ratings
2010 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS 4WD Review
Better gas mileage
Good Crossover For The Money! — Overall, the Mitsubishi Outlander is a very good car, good storage space, good control, and has a sporty/sleek look. Overall the cost of ownership is good, if you buy new its worth the money and its fun to drive!
Primary Use: Family transportation
2010 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS 4WD Review
Nice for cruising.
Repairs may be expensive if there is no dealer near you.
Great For Road Trips. — Smooth riding sport utility vehicle. Engine was a four cylinder so it is lacking in the performance department. The semi-automatic transmission is a pretty neat feature if you want to be able to override the automatic mode and have more control in certain situations. If you are looking for an suv that gets decent gas mileage, has a smooth ride, and has lots of bells and whistles, this is a good pick.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
2010 Mitsubishi Outlander SE 4WD Review
Decent power from the 168 HP 2.4 L 4 cylinder and CVT auto. transmission. Fuel economy is decent. 4WD option is great, especially the ability to lock the 4WD in place with a convenient knob near the shifter. Very nice cloth seats w/Black leather trim. Interior fit and finish & overall build quality is very good. Dual opening glove box is a nice touch. Rockford Fosgate Sound System w/7 speakers sounds awesome! Great front and rear seat room and 3rd row seat is available for 2 unexpected passengers. Cargo room excellent and love the pull-out tailgate for loading/unloading. Side mirrors are nice size (not too big, but big enough to give you excellent visibility). Awesome Exterior Design..looks more aggressive than previous model, but not too over the top either. Traction/Stability Control standard in the SE 4WD Model.
I coulda had a V6 (but at a higher cost and fuel economy wouldn't be as good as the 4 cylinder). Fuel Economy REALLY should be better than what it is with the 4 cylinder engine! I'm averaging 21.6 MPG mixed city/highway driving. No power seats or back-up camera with the SE trim level (at least not on the used model that I have...might be available as an add-on option??).
Beautiful Suv That Handles Great And Puts Boring Suv's (i.e.cr-v, Rav4) To Shame :) — Decent power from the 168 HP 2.4 L 4 cylinder and CVT auto. transmission. Fuel economy is just ok...could be better. 4WD option is great, especially the ability to lock the 4WD in place with a convenient knob near the shifter. Very nice cloth seats w/Black leather trim. Interior fit and finish & overall build quality is very good. Dual opening glove box is a nice touch. Rockford Fosgate Sound System w/7 speakers sounds awesome! Great front and rear seat room and 3rd row seat (which I probably will NEVER use) is available for 2 unexpected passengers (Mitsu calls them "Emergency Seats"..very appropriate..as in I've already got 5 people in the car and TWO friends in the same car break down in sub-zero weather and I happen to be close by). Cargo room excellent and love the pull-out tailgate for loading/unloading. Side mirrors are nice size (not too big, but big enough to give you excellent visibility). Not quite sure how I feel about the spare tire located outside tucked under the bottom in the back of the SUV. Awesome Exterior Design...Front end has the grill from the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution giving it a more aggressive and sporty look than previous model, but not too over the top either. It's also a car-based SUV built on the Lancer platform, so handling and road feel are both very good. Traction/Stability Control standard in the SE 4WD Model.
Primary Use: Commuting to work

Sweet And Sporty Awd Suv
The SUV is sporty and the added stereo system makes this 3 row SUV bumpin! The all-wheel drive capability helps this SUV grip the road no matter what terrain it encounters. The seats are plush and ver... Read More

I Love It!
I like the size and cargo capacity. It is sharp looking and gets decent mileage on the highway. Front seats could be more comfortable. Dig the paddle shifters, but the transmission shifts too much ... Read More
The 3.0 220 hp V6 is a bit small. It needs the 3.5 235 hp V6 (not an option) No repaires (not self induced) needed. Al roof cuts weight, and inproves skid control. A bit small 3rd row is cramped ... Read More
Its a good practical car, not gonna set the world on fire, but then again it does have 2 to many wheels. 40k on a set of tyres, and free servicing for 100k and 10 year warranty on drivetrain. ok Read More
