2.5L engine (191 hp) with a 6-speed automatic transmission (zero CVT worries). Superior interior in my opinion. Comes with a donut spare tire I believe.
I do like the looks of the Outlander Sport. Since I became interested in Mitsubishi somewhat, I have always thought the Outlander Sport looks the best. When the Eclipse Cross appeared, the Outlander Sport looked ever better!
There's no harm in test driving a 2023 Mazda CX-30 2.5S. Mazda vehicles look a bit more classy to me inside & out, and I say that in comparison to most everything else (not just Mitsubishi). Plus, Mazda vehicles go Zoom Zoom!
I do like the more rugged look of the Outlander Sport over the CX-30, but the engine/transmission on the CX-30 would trump that for me.
A fully loaded CX-30 with a turbo (227 hp) is quite pricey, but I wouldn't want a turbo anyways. 191 hp is decent power for a smaller SUV.
Just sharing! Nothing wrong with a Outlander Sport either. Heck I wish I owned the older 5-speed manual Outlander Sport. If their manuals had come with AWD, I may even own one already.
