The Outlander Sport, a mainstay of Mitsubishi's lineup since 2011, is a small SUV with seating up to 5. The Outlander Sport has technology that is now expected: Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It handles mud, snow, and sand with ease with optional all-wheel drive (AWD). Having better than average EPA (miles per gallon) for its class, it reduces fuel costs and pollution. Mitsubishi offers a 5-year, 60,000-mile basic warranty, and a 10-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty on its lineup.

Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a score of 67, implying a 0.058% chance of driver death (5.2% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.05%, and the chance of injury falls to 4.5%.

We estimate that the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0585% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 6.6786%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0585% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 6.6786% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is 22% more likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is 40% more likely to result in a fatal accident.

2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport offers AEB optionally. With AEB, the vehicle lifetime fatality chance drops by 14%.
