Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport than in the Hyundai Kona, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Kona, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
With the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Kona, 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). Whether you pick the Hyundai Kona or the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Hyundai Kona and the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Kona is about the same width as the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. The Hyundai Kona is slightly shorter than the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, which may make it easier to park.

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

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

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Hyundai Kona and the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Hyundai Kona and the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. The Hyundai Kona has less cargo space than the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Hyundai Kona comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.
