2014 Mitsubishi Outlander vs. 2014 Toyota RAV4 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Mitsubishi Outlander offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota RAV4, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Mitsubishi Outlander and the Toyota RAV4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mitsubishi Outlander as you will with the Toyota RAV4, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Mitsubishi Outlander will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota RAV4. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Mitsubishi Outlander will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota RAV4.

Dimensions
Since the Mitsubishi Outlander is much slimmer than the Toyota RAV4, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Mitsubishi Outlander takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota RAV4.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Mitsubishi Outlander doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota RAV4.

Handling
The Mitsubishi Outlander has the same turning radius as the Toyota RAV4, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Mitsubishi Outlander will do just as well as the Toyota RAV4, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Mitsubishi Outlander has a little less horsepower than the Toyota RAV4.

Utility
The Mitsubishi Outlander offers greater seating capacity than the Toyota RAV4, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Mitsubishi Outlander has less cargo space than the Toyota RAV4, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Mitsubishi Outlander than that of the Toyota RAV4.
