Midsize SUV (3-row) — 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander
5-Year Cost to Own: $40,995
For the second year in a row, the 7-passenger Mitsubishi Outlander wins its category as the midsize 3-row SUV with the lowest ownership costs. The Outlander starts below $25,000 — the primary reason it is one of the cheapest cars to own — and can range up to the GT with Mitsubishi’s Super All-Wheel Control all-wheel-drive system. Two engines are available, including a 3.0-liter MIVEC V6 unit that produces 224 horsepower and 215 lb-ft of torque. Mitsubishi also offers the Outlander as a plug-in hybrid that has the same 224 horsepower but gets 22 miles of electric-only range and impressive fuel economy.
