Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Trax, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Trax will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Trax carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Trax is much slimmer than the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Chevrolet Trax is slightly shorter than the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Trax and the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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

Performance
The Chevrolet Trax has a little less horsepower than the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Trax and the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Chevrolet Trax as you will in the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

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