The RVR or ASX are names given to a series of subcompact SUV crossover models that in the US market are known as the Outlander Sport. The 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport started at the great-value sum of $23,790 and came in 5 different trim levels: ES, SE, SP, Black Edition, and GT, the last of which starts at $26,690.

The 2020 Mitsubishi RVR/ASX/Outlander Sport rides on the same platform as it has done since 2011, but some improvements were made for the 2020 model year. First, it received a design facelift inside and out.

New features included a sleeker, more dynamic build design, sharper lines, new 18-inch wheels, LED headlights and taillights, and every trim got daytime running lights as standard. The interior got new control knobs for climate controls, and the higher-trim infotainment screen was expanded to 8 inches.

The base engine is a 2.0L 4-cylinder unit, but the better choice for any buyer is definitely the 2.4L unit which offers an extra 20 horsepower and will make the 2020 Outlander Sport more viable for highway driving. The 2.4L engine manages a respectable 0-60 time of 7.9 seconds.

The base engine with AWD drivetrain achieves about 28-mpg combined, whereas the 2.4 achieves 23-mpg in the city and 29-mpg on the highway: respectable numbers for an SUV model, but not the most competitive.

The interior is fairly simple but has been improved with nice additions like red contrast stitching on the GT model seats, but unfortunately no option for leather seats. There is an unfortunate abundance of cheap plastic, but that is part of what makes the Outlander so affordable.

On the road, the worst aspect is body roll on sharp corners, but once you get used to it, it enjoys quality brakes, a decent ride and, most importantly, a dependable steed when getting from A to B each day. It’s ideal therefore as a budget-friendly family car where one doesn’t want surprise mechanics’ bills.

The 2020 model sits on the same platform as the Eclipse Cross crossover SUV that was spun off from the popular compact car line.
