The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander has seats for seven in three rows. The front seats are comfortable, and the driver will have no problem finding a good driving position. The second row is fairly roomy, and the seats recline for extra comfort. However, the Outlander’s third row is cramped, so it should be left to the smallest members of the family. Everyone will appreciate the Outlander’s quiet interior.

The Outlander has two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors in its second-row outboard seats. The middle second-row seat has an upper-tether anchor. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rates the system Acceptable (the second-highest rating) for its user-friendliness.

Standard features include automatic climate control, heated side mirrors, Bluetooth, a USB port, and Mitsubishi’s voice-activated system that links your phone to the infotainment system. Available features include dual-zone automatic climate control, a rear-seat entertainment system, a sunroof, push-button start, navigation, and satellite radio. Climate, audio, and infotainment controls are well laid out and easy to use and access.
