Vehicle Review: 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander LE Sport

Here is my first review of a Mitsubishi vehicle. This is the 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander LE Sport.
Despite it's stylish looks this vehicle just felt sadly underpowered. Just trying to get up to speed seemed to be an ordeal. I did not see why this vehicle is called a "Sport". I got use to it after driving it for a week but still felt like i was babying it just to get up to normal highway and street speeds. Once you got up to speed the drive was very comfortable. It just wasn't as fun to drive as either the Hyundai Sante Fe or the Kia Sportage.
The cockpit is nicely laid out. Everything is pretty much easy within reach.
The drivers display is very simplistic.

The climate control system maintains the simplistic nature of the rest of the controls in the vehicle.
I found the controls on the stereo system to be non-user friendly. It was difficult to switch between different channels on the Sirius/XM Satellite Radio. It was just weird to not have knobs to do that.
I was surprised to find a flip down DVD player behind the stereo system. It was a nice feature but did not make up for the cumbersome controls on the stereo itself.
Large cup holders easily held my large McDonald's soda!
The center console has two tiers as most similar vehicles have these days. I really like this feature as I can keep my cell phone easily charged here.
The bottom of the center console contained the USB charge port as well as another power outlet.
Ample truck space as to be expected.
Not to be expected was the full size spare that seems to be a rarity these days.
One last look at the 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander LE Sport.

Overall, a decent vehicle that seems fairly reliable but the lack of exciting features with 27 MPG and a sticker price of $27, 565 with only basic options I expected more. A decent crossover but not one I can recommend.
