The Mitsubishi Outlander Sports Edition was first released back in the year 2010. This year, the Japanese car manufacturer has come out with a Limited Edition (LE) trim of the 2017 Outlander Sports Edition.
The Limited Edition of the 2017 Outlander Sport has been revealed during this year's Chicago Auto Show at the McCormick Place. The new 2017 Outlander Sports Limited Edition is a relatively reasonable vehicle, which is packed with a lot of features.
The new trim level features an alloy fuel door, fog lamps, black door mirrors, HID headlights, a rearview camera, 18-inch wheels, Limited Edition badge. The LE comes in 7 colors and its interior has been upgraded with black and red sewing on the steering wheel, brake lever, and shift knob.
2017 Outlander Sports Limited Edition also sports heated seats, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, plus aluminum pedals. The Limited Edition joins the ES, SE, SEL, and GT trim levels, with sitting between the ES and SE in the hierarchy, CarAndDriver.
The LE is an attempt by the Japanese car manufacturer to take the Outlander Sport one step further by mixing additional technology and standard equipment for a price, which is normally not associated with CUV. In a statement about the LE trim, noted by MSN, executive vice president and chief operating officer Don Swearingen said, "As the brand sales leader, Outlander Sport does an exemplary job of offering consumers unmatched value at an attractive price."
The 2017 Outlander Sports Limited Edition starts at $22,890 with front-wheel drive or $24,390 with all-wheel drive. The car is only available with a continuously variable automatic transmission a.k.a CVT. Like the ES, it's powered by a 148-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and costs $1000 more than the ES and $700 less than the SE that uses the 168-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder but has less equipment.
