Summary

Mitsubishi Outlander is all-new for 2014. The new 162-horsepower four-cylinder is so smooth and efficient we give it the nod over the 244-horsepower V6, especially since its CVT is invisible. The new styling isn't distinctive, but the three-row interior is right, and the handling and ride pass every test for a midsize family crossover.

NewCarTestDrive.com correspondent Sam Moses reported from San Diego after his test drive of the Mitsubishi Outlander.
