Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV than in the Lexus UX 250h, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus UX 250h.

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 Lexus UX 250h is somewhat more expensive than the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Lexus UX 250h carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus UX 250h is much wider than the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Lexus UX 250h is slightly shorter than the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Lexus UX 250h has a smaller turning radius than the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Lexus UX 250h and the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Lexus UX 250h is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.
