Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Equinox than in the Mitsubishi Outlander. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Equinox and the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Equinox as you will with the Mitsubishi Outlander, 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 Chevrolet Equinox will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mitsubishi Outlander. 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 Chevrolet Equinox and the Mitsubishi Outlander have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Equinox is a little wider than the Mitsubishi Outlander, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Equinox takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Equinox transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Chevrolet Equinox will do just as well as the Mitsubishi Outlander, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Chevrolet Equinox and the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Utility
The Chevrolet Equinox has less seating than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making the Mitsubishi Outlander the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Chevrolet Equinox has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Equinox is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Outlander.
