Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mazda CX-30 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mitsubishi Outlander, with comparable head- and legroom. The Mitsubishi Outlander offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mazda CX-30, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Mitsubishi Outlander requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Mazda CX-30, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Mazda CX-30 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mitsubishi Outlander. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Mazda CX-30 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Dimensions
The Mazda CX-30 is about the same width as the Mitsubishi Outlander. If you go with the Mazda CX-30, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Mazda CX-30 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Handling
The Mazda CX-30 has the same turning radius as the Mitsubishi Outlander, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Mazda CX-30 has a little more horsepower than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Utility
The Mazda CX-30 has less seating than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making the Mitsubishi Outlander the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Mazda CX-30 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Mazda CX-30 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Outlander.
