Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The MINI Countryman requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Mitsubishi Outlander, 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). The MINI Countryman is somewhat more expensive 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. The MINI Countryman carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Dimensions
Since the MINI Countryman is much slimmer than the Mitsubishi Outlander, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the MINI Countryman, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mitsubishi Outlander.

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

The MINI Countryman has a little more horsepower than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the MINI Countryman transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mitsubishi Outlander.
