The available Sportronic® 6-step Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) replaces gears with an efficient belt system that reacts faster, streamlines shifting and improves gas mileage. And it's more fun than traditional automatic transmissions—the CVT option includes steering-column-mounted magnesium paddle shifters so you can enjoy the performance of manual shifts when you're in the mood. Just tap the paddles to shift up and down.
The 2012 Outlander Sport arrives standard with a spirited, 2.0-liter power plant. Cast from durable, lightweight aluminum and equipped with MIVEC technology, this engine deftly balances power with environmentally-friendly efficiency. By optimizing valve timing at every speed, MIVEC allows the Outlander Sport to achieve 148 horsepower and a remarkable 31** MPG highway, when paired with the available CVT transmission.** EPA mileage estimate. Actual mileage may vary.
Technology is in your corner. Electric Power Steering (EPS) makes handling easier by using sophisticated electronics to provide the appropriate amount of power steering assistance, depending on your speed.
The Outlander Sport combines various eco-friendly features that work seamlessly together to deliver excellent fuel economy without sacrificing performance. Mitsubishi's brake energy regeneration system is a perfect example. This system's smart alternator captures kinetic energy during deceleration and converts it into electric energy. With the regenerative system keeping the battery charged, the engine doesn't have to, thereby reducing fuel consumption and the vehicle electrical load.
Mitsubishi's recent advances in plastic polymers yielded an extraordinary material with properties that make it ideal for front fender panels. It's strong, yet light, which increases fuel efficiency. It's dent resistant, which comes in handy at the cramped mall parking lot. Best of all, the plastic polymer is made from recycled materials.
Just one of many green features, a dedicated ECO driver indicator lamp appears in the full color display when you're driving efficiently. Over time, the system "teaches" you how to drive the Outlander Sport to maximize its environmentally friendly performance.
We've all been there. You're headed up a very steep hill and suddenly there's a red light. When the light turns green, you worry that you might roll back a little as your foot moves from the brake to the gas pedal. Well, now you can rest assured. Using front and rear gravity sensors, Hill Start Assist technology automatically detects inclines, applies the brakes and gently releases them as you start up the hill. As they say, it's the little things in life.
Borrowed from our rally heritage and included with our CVT transmission, steering-column-mounted magnesium paddle shifters merge the thrill and control of manual shifting with the convenience and ease of an automatic. You can downshift or upshift with a tap of your finger...no rally experience necessary. So why magnesium? Two reasons: It looks cool, and it stays cool, even if you park your Outlander Sport in direct sunlight.
Sometimes a simple solution can make a world of difference. The flap fold eliminates the lip found on many CUV tailgates. Instead, our tailgate can lay down flat, making it easier to slide heavy objects in and out.
Conveniently located between the speedometer and tachometer, the color multi-information display gives you an at-a-glance overview of your Outlander's various systems. See gas mileage, service needs — and even set an alarm to remind you of anything you need to remember.
Take the chill out of the air. The Outlander's heated leather seating surfaces always keep you warm and comfortable, no matter how cold it is outside.
The available FUSE Hands-free Link System takes the convenience of advanced voice recognition and combines it with the power of Bluetooth®* to give you complete control over your phone and entertainment system. Stream your favorite songs from your MP3 player, call your family and friends from your address book - all while keeping your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road.*The Bluetooth word mark and logos are owned by the Bluetooth SIG, Inc. and any use of such marks by Mitsubishi is under license.

The Outlander replaces many hard surfaces with soft leatherette dash and door panel accents. Elegant yet durable, they deliver style and comfort that last.
We believe in the quality, reliability and durability of the Mirage so much that we back it with a 10-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty. We also include a 5-year/60,000-mile fully transferable New Vehicle Basic Limited Warranty, a 5-year/60,000-mile warranty on the restraint system, a 7-year/100,000-mile Anti-Corrosion/Perforation Limited Warranty and 5-years/unlimited miles Roadside Assistance.
Yet another standard safety feature, Active Stability Control employs a series of sensors to constantly monitor the grip of the tires on the road. Should the wheels begin to slip, the ASC system works in concert with the anti-lock brake system to apply the brakes intelligently as needed to each wheel, giving you the ultimate sense of control.† Safety is a two-way street. It requires your attention and cooperation. Please remember to fasten your safety belt, drive responsibly and obey all traffic laws..
The Outlander Sport's braking system is a study in technology. ABS helps eliminate wheel lock-up by monitoring the speed of each individual wheel and adjusting the braking pressure as needed. When impending lock-up is sensed, ABS sends rapid brake pulses (up to ten per second) to the wheels in need, dramatically reducing the chance of a skid on any terrain.‡ Safety is a two-way street. It requires your attention and cooperation. Please remember to fasten your safety belt, drive responsibly and obey all traffic laws.
Mitsubishi's All-Wheel Control (AWC) system engages an onboard computer that monitors throttle, vehicle speed and the road condition—and makes split-second adjustments to help maximize control in any weather. Feel free to switch between 2WD, 4WD, and LOCK drive modes on the go.
In some ways it's the most beautiful part of the interior: Mitsubishi's seven airbag system that includes dual advanced front airbags and a driver's knee airbag. A recent innovation, the driver's knee airbag helps to reduce the risk of injury by stabilizing the legs and lower body of the driver during certain types of impact. It's quite advanced. And merely one of the seven airbags that make up this sophisticated safety sy** Airbags are part of a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS). To decrease the risk of injury from a deploying airbag, always wear your seatbelt, sit upright in the middle of the seat and do not lean against the door. Always place children 12 and under in the rear seat and use appropriate child restraints. Never place a rear facing infant restraint in the front seat. See your owner's manual and instructions provided with your child restraint for additional information.
You're not the only one who admires the Outlander Sport. Which is why we've equipped it with a tough, integrated anti-theft alarm system and immobilizer key. This system automatically interrupts the power to many crucial electronic circuits when you walk away from the Outlander Sport. So let's just say an unauthorized start might require a degree in electrical engineering.
Like all Mitsubishi vehicles, the Outlander Sport is equipped with three-point seatbelts and head restraints, plus front seatbelt pretensioners that are designed to help tighten the belts in certain types of frontal impacts and rollovers so the seatbelts can better do their job. Seatbelt force limiters, which help the front seatbelts and airbags work together optimally, are also standard on every Outlander Sport. Of course, children have specific safety needs. Mitsubishi's Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) system simplifies the attachment of child safety seats, making it easier for you to help keep your loved ones safe.
