Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the Mitsubishi Outlander. The Hyundai Santa Fe will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Santa Fe 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 Hyundai Santa Fe is somewhat more expensive than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Santa Fe is about the same width as the Mitsubishi Outlander. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Hyundai Santa Fe, which is slightly longer than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Hyundai Santa Fe is clearly the choice over the Mitsubishi Outlander for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Santa Fe greatly out-muscles the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Hyundai Santa Fe does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Mitsubishi Outlander. The Hyundai Santa Fe has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Mitsubishi Outlander.
