If you’re trying to find the perfect crossover to fit your needs, Mitsubishi has some good, affordable options that are worth considering. The Mitsubishi Outlander and its little sibling, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, both offer comfortable rides with good gas mileage and generous features. But there are more differences than what initially meets the eye.
The Mitsubishi Outlander is the larger of the two crossovers. A bigger size means more room for cargo and passengers. The Outlander can comfortably seat up to 7 people and has 63.6 cubic feet of cargo space. The Outlander Sport trades in seating area for a tighter handling and a sportier drive. Only five passengers will fit in the Outlander Sport, but for those who enjoy a vehicle that focuses on a fun driving experience, it may be worth the sacrifice.
The Outlander Sport also comes with a 5-speed manual transmission which adds to the driver dynamics. When it comes to power, though, the Outlander comes out on top. But, that additional horsepower and torque will be needed for the extra cargo and passengers you’ll be transporting.
Both the Outlander and the Outlander Sport come with advanced technology in both the safety and entertainment realm. The Mitsubishi Outlander comes with an available 7 inch touch screen and available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Capability, while the Outlander Sport offers a 6.1 inch touchscreen and Bluetooth capability. Whether you value more space or sportier handling, one of these Mitsubishi crossovers are sure to fit your needs.
