Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda CR-V offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mitsubishi Outlander, with comparable head- and legroom. The Mitsubishi Outlander will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda CR-V 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). Whether you pick the Honda CR-V or the Mitsubishi Outlander, it's going to cost you about the same.

Dimensions
Since the Honda CR-V 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 Honda CR-V takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Handling
The Honda CR-V 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 Honda CR-V for pulling heavy loads. The Honda CR-V has a little more horsepower than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Honda CR-V and the Mitsubishi Outlander are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
The Honda CR-V has less seating than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making the Mitsubishi Outlander the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Honda CR-V has less cargo space than the Mitsubishi Outlander, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
