Comparison Review

Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda HR-V than in the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Honda HR-V 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 Honda HR-V, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost

The Honda HR-V will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Honda HR-V doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.
