Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda CR-V Hybrid 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 Hybrid.

Convenience
The Honda CR-V Hybrid requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Honda CR-V Hybrid 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 Honda CR-V Hybrid and the Mitsubishi Outlander have similar Destination Charges.

Handling
The Honda CR-V Hybrid 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 Hybrid for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Honda CR-V Hybrid has a lot less horsepower than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Powertrain
