2010 Mitsubishi Outlander Overview

When it was new, critics said the 2010 Mitsubishi Outlander is a good overall vehicle, as long as you can get past its low-rent cabin. They said its ride is fairly supple, yet somewhat sporty. It also offers one of the few third-row seats in the segment, though most reviewers said it is laughably small, even for kids.

Powering the Outlander is either a four-cylinder engine that makes 168 horsepower or a V6, good for 230 horsepower. Critics greatly preferred the V6, saying models with the four-cylinder unit feel fairly sluggish. Either engine can be paired with either front- or all-wheel drive. A four-cylinder, front-wheel drive Outlander achieves 21/27 mpg city/highway, which is fairly respectable for the class, though several leading competitors do better. Opting for AWD or the V6 slightly reduces fuel economy.

Inside, the Outlander drew demerits for its low-rent materials. However, most found that the seats in the first and second row have plenty of comfort and space. There is also an available third-row seat, but many critics predicted that virtually no one would be happy sitting there. Maximum cargo space with the rear seats folded is 72.6 cubic feet, which is very good for the class. Standard equipment includes cloth seats and a six-speaker CD stereo. Upper trims and option packages welcome features like Bluetooth, an auxiliary input jack, Mitsubishi’s Fuse voice command system, automatic climate control and a Rockford Fosgate stereo. Also available are navigation, satellite radio, leather upholstery and a power sunroof.

Other Cars to Consider

If you’re looking at the Outlander, you should look at the 2010 GMC Terrain as well. Critics said the Terrain has a high-quality, well-designed interior, and is well-mannered on the road. It lacks the Outlander’s available third row, but critics found its seats very comfortable and spacious, and they also appreciated that its back row slides forward and backward.

Another 2010 compact SUV to consider is the 2010 Toyota RAV4. The RAV4 also has a third-row seat, and while most critics said it isn’t the most comfortable spot in the vehicle, it doesn’t get as many complaints as the Outlander’s does. The RAV4 also has a powerful V6 engine that critics loved when it was new.
