2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport vs. 2015 Mazda CX-5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mazda CX-5 than in the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and the Mazda CX-5.

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 Mazda CX-5, 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 Mazda CX-5. 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 Mazda CX-5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is much slimmer than the Mazda CX-5, 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 Mazda CX-5.

Drivetrain
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has much lower torque than the Mazda CX-5, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a smaller turning radius than the Mazda CX-5, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a little less horsepower than the Mazda CX-5.

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 Mazda CX-5. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mazda CX-5.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport than that of the Mazda CX-5.
