The 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport compact sport-utility vehicle ("SUV") recently made its North American debut at the 2010 New York International Auto Show. The Outlander Sport has already been released overseas, where it is known as the Mitsubishi RVR in Asia and the Mitsubishi ASX ("Active Sport Crossover") in Europe.

For 2010, both the Mitsubishi Outlander GT and XLS have a 3.0 liter 230 horsepower MIVEC V6 standard engine. This MIVEC engine provides power and utility without sacrificing the contents of an owner's wallet thanks to an EPA estimated 24 miles per gallon highway average.
The ES and SE models come equipped with a 2.4 liter four cylinder DOHC MIVEC I4 engine averaging between 161 and 168 horsepower, with a fuel economy around 27 miles per gallon on the highway. Both the ES and SE Outlander models pass the PZEV (Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle) requirement, making them economically as well as ecologically friendly. It is important to keep in mind that the GT and XLS Mitsubishi Outlander models do not qualify for the Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle standard. In all 2010 models, the engine block and cylinder head are constructed out of aluminum.
