2017 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the Mitsubishi Outlander. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Santa Fe as you will with the Mitsubishi Outlander, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Hyundai Santa Fe will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mitsubishi Outlander, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Mitsubishi Outlander have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Santa Fe is much wider than the Mitsubishi Outlander, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Hyundai Santa Fe, which is slightly longer than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Hyundai Santa Fe does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Handling
The Hyundai Santa Fe has a larger turning radius than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Hyundai Santa Fe is clearly the choice over the Mitsubishi Outlander for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Santa Fe greatly out-muscles the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Utility
The Hyundai Santa Fe has less seating than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making the Mitsubishi Outlander the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. With the Hyundai Santa Fe, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Warranty
The Hyundai Santa Fe comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mitsubishi Outlander.
