Overview

The 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander is a compact SUV that is placed in the center of the class. The Outlander boasts a nice interior, smart tech features, calm driving, and big cargo space, but its weak engine holds it back. It is completely redesigned.

Mitsubishi has increased Outlander’s list of available features and endowed it with unexpected sporty driving qualities. Its interior has also been substantially upgraded, with an attractively simple design and much better materials than the previous model.

A variety of innovative connectivity features, as well as driver-assistance technologies, are also included. A plug-in hybrid (PHEV) model will also be added to the lineup in the future.

What’s Newly Include in 2022

  • Brand new Model

Engine, Transmission, and Fuel Efficiency

The 2.5-liter inline-four-cylinder engine in the Outlander generates 181 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque. It pairs with a continuously variable automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is the standard setup, while all-wheel drive is available as an option. 

This stunning SUV achieves up to 31 miles per gallon on the highway and 24 miles per gallon in the city and has become one of the most fuel-efficient seven-seaters in its class. However, the front-wheel-drive variant has a combined fuel efficiency of 27 mpg.

Mitsubishi’s S-AWC all-wheel-drive system, available on any model level for $1,800, reduces highway and combined fuel economy by one mile per gallon.

What is the seating capacity?

The 2022 Outlander is a 3-row SUV that can seat seven people. The Outlander’s first row is spacious, even for tall passengers, and the front seats are comfy and supportive. Outward visibility is excellent for the SUV’s front and sides. The second row is spacious, with comfortable seats and enough headroom and legroom for people of average size. 

While the third-row seats are useful in an emergency, they are only spacious enough for small children, and even then, the sitting position is very unpleasant. Standard features include cloth upholstery and a power-adjustable driver’s seat. Synthetic and genuine leather upholstery is available as options such as heated front and rear seats, power-adjustable front passenger seat, heated steering wheel, and rear sunshades.

How many Child Car Seats?

The Outlander has two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the second-row outboard seats and a tether anchor for the center seat.

Interior Quality

The 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander is a luxury SUV. Even at highway speeds, the interior is well-insulated from wind and road noise. Most interior surfaces are covered in plush upholstery and soft-touch plastic, giving the dashboard a contemporary, clean look. Overall, the new Outlander’s interior is competitive with the interiors of some entry-level luxury SUVs.

Cargo Space

Behind the third row, there are 11.7 cubic feet of cargo space in the Mitsubishi Outlander. When the third row is folded, the space increases to 33.5 cubic feet, and when the second and third rows are folded, it increases to 79.7 cubic feet. A hands-free power liftgate is an available option, although a manual liftgate is standard.

Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

The standard 8-inch and optional 9-inch touch displays on the 2022 Outlander are simple and responsive. The menu layout of the infotainment system is easy, and the graphics are clear and easy to understand. 

  • The standard infotainment system includes an eight-inch touch screen, Bluetooth, two USB ports, and a 6-speaker stereo.
  • A 9-inch touch screen, navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay, a smartphone charging pad, and HD Radio, ten speakers stereo, and two extra USB ports are all available infotainment options. 
  • Push-button start and dual-zone automatic climate control are also included as standard features.
  • A panoramic sunroof, proximity keyless entry, and tri-zone automatic climate control are the available features.

Should I Buy a 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander?

If you’re looking for a small SUV, the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander is a great option. This seven-seat crossover provides premium looks and a long list of standard amenities. If you want a car that accelerates quickly, you should consider the Honda CR-V or Mazda CX-5 because Outlander lacks this feature.
