2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport vs. 2016 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Ford Escape. 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 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and the Ford Escape have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a little narrower than the Ford Escape, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is slightly shorter than the Ford Escape, which may make it easier to park.

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

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.
