Benefits of Driving a 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Sport Utility Crossover

The Outlander Sport is Mitsubishi's competitor in the small SUV segment, and while the market is a crowded one, the Sport offers both reasonable performance and great list of standard features. With optional all-wheel drive and seating for five adults, it's a competitive alternative to the Kia Sportage, Nissan Juke, Honda CR-V or Ford Escape.

What's new for 2012?

The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has been given several updates for the 2012 model year. Increased sound insulation helps cut down on unwanted noise and vibration, while a recalibrated CVT transmission tightens up throttle response and improves acceleration. The ES gets newly redesigned wheel covers while the top of the line SE gets brand new 18-inch alloys. The SE also gets some chrome accents on the interior and an optional backup camera as part of the Premium package.

Model Review

The Outlander Sport is an entry-level small SUV from Mitsubishi. Although much of the mechanical structure comes from the already established and larger 7-passenger Outlander, the Sport is distinguished by its more compact dimensions. With much shorter front and rear overhangs, the Sport weighs 400-lbs less than its larger cousin. The front end features Mitsubishi's characteristic large grille, much like the one used on the Lancer Evolution and a taller beltline with a standard rear spoiler--the company claims it has the lowest coefficient of drag of any of the small SUVs in its class.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.

Original Warranty  help
Original Warranty
An original warranty is the warranty associated with a vehicle when it is brand new. In addition to the original warranty, select items, like tires, are typically covered by respective manufacturers. Also, an act of Federal law sometimes provides protection for certain components, like emissions equipment.
The original warranty is often broken down into multiple sections, including:
Basic Warranty:
Typically covers everything except for parts that wear out through normal use of the vehicle. Examples of non-covered items are brake pads, wiper blades and filters.
Drivetrain Warranty:
This warranty covers items the basic warranty does not protect. Wear and tear items such as hoses will not be covered, but key items like the engine, transmission, drive axles and driveshaft often will be.
Roadside Assistance:
The level of service differs greatly with this warranty, but many manufacturers offer a toll-free number that helps provide assistance in case you run out of gas, get a flat tire or lock your keys in the car.
Corrosion Warranty:
This warranty focuses on protecting you from holes caused by rust or corrosion in your vehicle's sheet metal.
Please check the owner's manual, visit a local dealership or look at the manufacturer's website to learn more about the specifics of the warranties that apply to a vehicle.

Basic 5 Years/60,000 Miles
Drivetrain 10 Years/100,000 Miles
Corrosion 7 Years/100,000 Miles
Roadside Assistance 5 Years/Unlimited Miles
