2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport vs. 2016 Toyota RAV4 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota RAV4 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 Toyota RAV4.

Convenience
The Toyota RAV4 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, 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). Clearly, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a better financial choice over the Toyota RAV4, 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 Toyota RAV4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a little narrower than the Toyota RAV4, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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 Toyota RAV4.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota RAV4.

Handling
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota RAV4, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a little less horsepower than the Toyota RAV4.

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 Toyota RAV4. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has significantly less cargo capacity than the Toyota RAV4.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport than that of the Toyota RAV4.
