2012 Mitsubishi Sport


Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)

The available Sportronic® 6-step Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) replaces gears with an efficient belt system that reacts faster, streamlines shifting and improves gas mileage. And it's more fun than traditional automatic transmissions—the CVT option includes steering-column-mounted magnesium paddle shifters so you can enjoy the performance of manual shifts when you're in the mood. Just tap the paddles to shift up and down.

2.0L MIVEC Engine

The 2012 Outlander Sport arrives standard with a spirited, 2.0-liter power plant. Cast from durable, lightweight aluminum and equipped with MIVEC technology, this engine deftly balances power with environmentally-friendly efficiency. By optimizing valve timing at every speed, MIVEC allows the Outlander Sport to achieve 148 horsepower and a remarkable 31** MPG highway, when paired with the available CVT transmission.

** EPA mileage estimate. Actual mileage may vary.

Electric Power Steering

Technology is in your corner. Electric Power Steering (EPS) makes handling easier by using sophisticated electronics to provide the appropriate amount of power steering assistance, depending on your speed.

Brake Energy Regeneration System

The Outlander Sport combines various eco-friendly features that work seamlessly together to deliver excellent fuel economy without sacrificing performance. Mitsubishi's brake energy regeneration system is a perfect example. This system's smart alternator captures kinetic energy during deceleration and converts it into electric energy. With the regenerative system keeping the battery charged, the engine doesn't have to, thereby reducing fuel consumption and the vehicle electrical load.

Plastic Polymer Front Fender Panels

Mitsubishi's recent advances in plastic polymers yielded an extraordinary material with properties that make it ideal for front fender panels. It's strong, yet light, which increases fuel efficiency. It's dent resistant, which comes in handy at the cramped mall parking lot. Best of all, the plastic polymer is made from recycled materials.

Eco-Driver Indicator Lamp

Just one of many green features, a dedicated ECO driver indicator lamp appears in the full color display when you're driving efficiently. Over time, the system "teaches" you how to drive the Outlander Sport to maximize its environmentally friendly performance.

Hill Start Assist

We've all been there. You're headed up a very steep hill and suddenly there's a red light. When the light turns green, you worry that you might roll back a little as your foot moves from the brake to the gas pedal. Well, now you can rest assured. Using front and rear gravity sensors, Hill Start Assist technology automatically detects inclines, applies the brakes and gently releases them as you start up the hill. As they say, it's the little things in life.

Magnesium-Alloy Paddle Shifters

Borrowed from our rally heritage and included with our CVT transmission, steering-column-mounted magnesium paddle shifters merge the thrill and control of manual shifting with the convenience and ease of an automatic. You can downshift or upshift with a tap of your finger...no rally experience necessary. So why magnesium? Two reasons: It looks cool, and it stays cool, even if you park your Outlander Sport in direct sunlight.


18-inch Aluminum Alloy Wheels

18-inch Aluminum Alloy Wheels

The SE trims include an upgrade to these striking aluminum-alloy wheels, adding an elegant touch to an already attractive profile.

Wind-Tunnel Tested Aerodynamics

Wind-Tunnel Tested Aerodynamics

The smooth front face, sloping sides and gently curving roof look stunning, but they're not without purpose. Special steps were taken during the design process to reduce air friction on all surfaces. In fact, wind-tunnel testing helped generate a class-leading 0.33 coefficient of drag. Which means less wind resistance and increased fuel efficiency. And, of course, that sleek new look..

Exterior Package

Exterior Package

Why let the sports cars have all the fun? For those who actually want more sport in your Outlander Sport, the available Exterior Package offers some cool equipment to get you going. From the rear spoiler, front corner extensions and rear diffuser garnish, to the front chrome lower garnish and aluminum-alloy fuel door, the Exterior Package puts the Outlander Sport even further out in front of the pack with style.

Interior Package

Interior Package

The innovative design of the Outlander Sport attracts attention, and inside, the available Interior Package offers sporty refinement that's equally inviting. Featuring a piano black overlay that surrounds the audio system and a stylish gearshift overlay, the package also includes an aluminum-alloy and leather shift knob. The end result? Simply put, gorgeous.

Panoramic Glass Roof

Panoramic Glass Roof with LED Mood Lighting

Measuring an impressive 4 feet in length and 3.2 feet across, the available panoramic glass roof is a sight to behold. While many vehicles today have sunroofs that only give the front passengers a view, the Outlander Sport's panoramic glass roof breathes sunlight (or moonlight) into the entire cabin, giving everyone front row seats to the sky. A retractable electric sunshade lets you control the daylight and adjustable, amber-colored LED accent lighting strikes a new mood for evening drives.

Color Multi-Information Display with High Contrast Meters

Color Multi-Information Display w/High Contrast Meters

Rest your eyes on the Outlander Sport's full-color multi-information display that lives between the tachometer and the speedometer. This smart digital display serves up at-a-glance updates of temperature, fuel level, average fuel economy and trip details, among other fun facts. All standard, of course.

Super-Wide Range HID Headlamps

Super-Wide Range HID Headlamps

See the road in a whole new light. Standard on SE models, these high-intensity discharge lamps employ xenon gas to project a beam that's 35% brighter than standard HID headlamps and spans 80 degrees. The super-wide angle casts light farther into the corners, allowing you to see more of the road—and more of the things that standard headlights might miss.


Rear-View Back-up Camera

Sometimes a simple solution can make a world of difference. The flap fold eliminates the lip found on many CUV tailgates. Instead, our tailgate can lay down flat, making it easier to slide heavy objects in and out.

One-Touch Start/Stop Engine Switch

Conveniently located between the speedometer and tachometer, the color multi-information display gives you an at-a-glance overview of your Outlander's various systems. See gas mileage, service needs — and even set an alarm to remind you of anything you need to remember.

Sirius/XM™ Satellite Radio with 3 Months Subscription

Take the chill out of the air. The Outlander's heated leather seating surfaces always keep you warm and comfortable, no matter how cold it is outside.

Fuse Hands-Free Link System™ with USB Port

The available FUSE Hands-free Link System takes the convenience of advanced voice recognition and combines it with the power of Bluetooth®* to give you complete control over your phone and entertainment system. Stream your favorite songs from your MP3 player, call your family and friends from your address book - all while keeping your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road.

Safety & Warranty

10-Year 100,000-Mile Limited Powertrain Warranty*

The engine, transmission and other powertrain components are covered for 10 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. To keep you on the road, Mitsubishi also offers a 5-year, 60,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty and a 7-year, 100,000-mile anti-corrosion perforation limited warranty.

* All coverage terms are from the original in-service date. The 10-year/100,000 mile Limited Powertrain Warranty applies only to the original owner of new, retailed 2012 models purchased from an authorized Mitsubishi retailer. Subsequent owners receive the balance of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty of 5 years/60,000 miles. See retailer for limited warranty and roadside assistance terms and conditions.

Active Stability Control†

Yet another standard safety feature, Active Stability Control employs a series of sensors to constantly monitor the grip of the tires on the road. Should the wheels begin to slip, the ASC system works in concert with the anti-lock brake system to apply the brakes intelligently as needed to each wheel, giving you the ultimate sense of control.

† Safety is a two-way street. It requires your attention and cooperation. Please remember to fasten your safety belt, drive responsibly and obey all traffic laws.

Anti-Lock Brake System‡ with Brake Override Feature

The Outlander Sport's braking system is a study in technology. ABS helps eliminate wheel lock-up by monitoring the speed of each individual wheel and adjusting the braking pressure as needed. When impending lock-up is sensed, ABS sends rapid brake pulses (up to ten per second) to the wheels in need, dramatically reducing the chance of a skid on any terrain.

‡ Safety is a two-way street. It requires your attention and cooperation. Please remember to fasten your safety belt, drive responsibly and obey all traffic laws.

All-Wheel Control (AWC)

Mitsubishi's All-Wheel Control (AWC) system engages an onboard computer that monitors throttle, vehicle speed and the road condition—and makes split-second adjustments to help maximize control in any weather. Feel free to switch between 2WD, 4WD, and LOCK drive modes on the go.

Seven Airbags**

In some ways it's the most beautiful part of the interior: Mitsubishi's seven airbag system that includes dual advanced front airbags and a driver's knee airbag. A recent innovation, the driver's knee airbag helps to reduce the risk of injury by stabilizing the legs and lower body of the driver during certain types of impact. It's quite advanced. And merely one of the seven airbags that make up this sophisticated safety sy

** Airbags are part of a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS). To decrease the risk of injury from a deploying airbag, always wear your seatbelt, sit upright in the middle of the seat and do not lean against the door. Always place children 12 and under in the rear seat and use appropriate child restraints. Never place a rear facing infant restraint in the front seat. See your owner's manual and instructions provided with your child restraint for additional information.

Engine Immobilizer Anti-Theft System

You're not the only one who admires the Outlander Sport. Which is why we've equipped it with a tough, integrated anti-theft alarm system and immobilizer key. This system automatically interrupts the power to many crucial electronic circuits when you walk away from the Outlander Sport. So let's just say an unauthorized start might require a degree in electrical engineering.

Seatbelt Pretensioners & the Latch System

Like all Mitsubishi vehicles, the Outlander Sport is equipped with three-point seatbelts and head restraints, plus front seatbelt pretensioners that are designed to help tighten the belts in certain types of frontal impacts and rollovers so the seatbelts can better do their job. Seatbelt force limiters, which help the front seatbelts and airbags work together optimally, are also standard on every Outlander Sport. Of course, children have specific safety needs. Mitsubishi's Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) system simplifies the attachment of child safety seats, making it easier for you to help keep your loved ones safe.
