2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport vs. 2014 Ford Escape Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Escape than in the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Escape will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport as you will with the Ford Escape, 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). Clearly, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a better financial choice over the Ford Escape, when considering MSRP. 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 Sport will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Ford Escape.

Dimensions
Since the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is much slimmer than the Ford Escape, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Escape.

Drivetrain
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has much lower torque than the Ford Escape, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Ford Escape, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a lot less horsepower than the Ford Escape.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and the Ford Escape. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has significantly less cargo capacity than the Ford Escape.

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