2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport vs. 2014 Nissan Xterra Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Nissan Xterra, with comparable head- and legroom. The Nissan Xterra offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Nissan Xterra, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Nissan Xterra. 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 Nissan Xterra.

Dimensions
Since the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is much slimmer than the Nissan Xterra, 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 Nissan Xterra.

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

Handling
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a smaller turning radius than the Nissan Xterra, allowing you to 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 Nissan Xterra.

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 Nissan Xterra. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has significantly less cargo capacity than the Nissan Xterra.

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