2014 Kia Sportage vs. 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Sportage as you will with the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, 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 Kia Sportage is somewhat more expensive than the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Kia Sportage will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

Dimensions
Since the Kia Sportage is much wider than the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, 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 Kia Sportage, which is slightly longer than the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Kia Sportage transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

Handling
The Kia Sportage has the same turning radius as the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Kia Sportage has a little more horsepower than the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Kia Sportage and the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. The Kia Sportage has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

Warranty
The Kia Sportage comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.
