What Is the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander?
Mitsubishi’s seven-seat Outlander SUV is available with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder or a 3.0-liter V-6 engine. The four-cylinder pairs with a continuously variable automatic transmission while the V-6 works with a six-speed automatic. Front- and all-wheel-drive versions are available. Not to be confused with the smaller Outlander Sport, the Outlander competes with crossovers like the Hyundai Santa Fe, Toyota Highlander and Kia Sorento. There aren’t many competitors for the Outlander PHEV, which only comes with five seats and can travel up to 22 miles on electric power alone, the EPA says.

What’s New on the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander?
The Outlander gets a new front end, a lower skid plate and 18-inch alloy wheels. Other tweaks, including softer front seats and revisions to the suspension and steering, are meant to improve comfort, Mitsubishi says. A repair kit replaces the spare tire, and the rear seating area gets air vents. Similar upgrades to the PHEV are joined by a new USB port in the rear.

What Features in the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Are Most Important?
Value. With a base price of just over $27,000 with all-wheel drive, the Outlander is a value buy in the crowded three-row SUV space. It comes standard with a 7-inch touchscreen stereo, dual-zone automatic air conditioning and a CVT. The top, GT trim level is still a good deal with standard AWD, though it’ll cost you more to add the optional active safety features that Mitsubishi offers. The value proposition erodes with the five-seat PHEV, which costs about $8,000 more than a V-6 Outlander. But there aren’t many other PHEVs in this class.

Should I Buy the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander?
The Outlander makes up in value what it lacks in refinement. Our editors felt like the interior of the loaded GT trim was “a car from five years ago rather than something modern.”  Lower trims could be an appealing value proposition for shoppers who don’t need all the latest finishes and gadgetry. The best value play is the SE trim, which has Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and heated front seats.
