2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport vs. 2017 Subaru Forester Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport than the Subaru Forester. The Subaru Forester 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.

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 Subaru Forester, 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. Both the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and the Subaru Forester have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is about the same width as the Subaru Forester. 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 Subaru Forester.

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

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

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and the Subaru Forester.

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 Subaru Forester. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has significantly less cargo capacity than the Subaru Forester.

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