Reasons Why Leasing A 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport AWC Remains A Decent Choice

For years, Mitsubishi’s lineup has failed to appeal to many shoppers. Once renowned for their reliability, Mitsubishi cars may seem to have lost their charm. But beneath these relatively undesirable cars lies a decent subcompact car that gives you what you pay for.

The 2022 Outlander Sport AWC may be plagued with many downsides, but there’s still much good stuff to say about this new subcompact SUV. If you’re a massive fan of the Mitsubishi brand, leasing the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport AWC is quite the bargain. And compared to some other SUVs in its class, the 2022 Outlander Sport AWC still affords some exemplary traits, including a powertrain warranty, handsome styling, and all-wheel drive.

The new Outlander Sport AWC sports some improvement over its predecessor. Mitsubishi gave the Outlander Sport a transformative facelift in 2020, a handful of updates in 2021. And now, in 2022, the new Mitsubishi Outlander Sport AWC, while still retaining its transformative facelift, affords more convenience and safety tech upgrades.

Engine And Performance

Mitsubishi offers two decent powertrains in the Outlander Sport. We expect the 2022 Outlander Sport AWC to come with the same familiar powertrains. Its base model will be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces 148 horsepower. Upgrading will require the more powerful 2.4-liter four-cylinder that generates 168 horsepower. Both engines pair with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Of course, the AWC signifies that this subcompact SUV will come with the Mitsubishi’s optional all-wheel-drive rather than the standard FWD.

While this Mitsubishi’s base engine feels underpowered and weak for the highway and even a bit reluctant in city driving, the improved 2.4-liter inline-four comes to the rescue. And though its acceleration is not as pleasing or quick as you might expect, it’s worth the money. Thanks to the all-wheel-drive system or AWC, this Mitsubishi provides a fair amount of body roll in corners, responsive but average brakes, easy maneuverability, and a smooth steering feel.

Fuel Economy

With an EPA estimated ratings of 23 mpg city and 29 mpg highway with the base 2.0-liter four-cylinder and 23 mpg city and 28 mpg on the highway with the optional 2.4-liter version, the 2022 Outlander Sport is not so fuel-efficient.


On the inside, the 2022 Outlander Sport AWC features a simple design and easy-to-use features. Its nicely laid cabin sports some soft-touch surfaces, decent materials, and some cool features, including cloth upholstery, automatic climate control, heated front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a 7-inch touch screen. An 8-inch touch screen with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, proximity keyless entry, push-button start, and remote start is also available. Passenger and cargo space is decent for a small SUV.


All 2022 Outlander Sport AWC models boast a long list of standard driver assists features, including automatic high-beam, forward-collision warning with pedestrian detection, rain-sensing windshield wipers, lane-departure warning, and a rearview camera.

The 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport may not be the best in its class, but it has some redeeming traits and a “pay for what you get” value to make it a decent lease option. Call VIP Auto, 1204 Hylan Blvd, Staten Island, NY 10305, for the lowest lease rates you can trust.

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
