Comparison Review

Comfort
The MINI MINI-Countryman offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the MINI MINI-Countryman and the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

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 MINI MINI-Countryman will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 MINI MINI-Countryman carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

Dimensions
The MINI MINI-Countryman is a little wider than the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the MINI MINI-Countryman, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the MINI MINI-Countryman does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the MINI MINI-Countryman greatly out-muscles the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the MINI MINI-Countryman and the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. The MINI MINI-Countryman has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the MINI MINI-Countryman is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.
