Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW X1 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the BMW X1 and the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

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). Whether you pick the BMW X1 or the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X1 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

Dimensions
The BMW X1 is a little wider than the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the BMW X1, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the BMW X1 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

Handling
The BMW X1 has a larger turning radius than the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X1 greatly out-muscles the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X1 and the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. The BMW X1 has less cargo space than the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the BMW X1 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.
