Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Tucson than in the Mitsubishi Outlander. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Hyundai Tucson and the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Tucson 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 Hyundai Tucson or the Mitsubishi Outlander, 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 Tucson and the Mitsubishi Outlander have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Tucson is a little narrower than the Mitsubishi Outlander, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai Tucson takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mitsubishi Outlander.

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

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Hyundai Tucson will do just as well as the Mitsubishi Outlander, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Hyundai Tucson has a little more horsepower than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Hyundai Tucson and the Mitsubishi Outlander are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
The Hyundai Tucson has less seating than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making the Mitsubishi Outlander the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Hyundai Tucson as you will in the Mitsubishi Outlander.
