Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the GMC Terrain than the Mitsubishi Outlander. The Mitsubishi Outlander offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the GMC Terrain, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the GMC Terrain 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). The GMC Terrain is somewhat more expensive 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 GMC Terrain and the Mitsubishi Outlander have similar Destination Charges.

Since the GMC Terrain is much slimmer than the Mitsubishi Outlander, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the GMC Terrain takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mitsubishi Outlander.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Mitsubishi Outlander is clearly the choice over the GMC Terrain for pulling heavy loads. The GMC Terrain has a little less horsepower than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the GMC Terrain transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Utility
The GMC Terrain has less seating than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making the Mitsubishi Outlander the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The GMC Terrain has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mitsubishi Outlander.
