Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Tucson than in the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and the Hyundai Tucson.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport as you will with the Hyundai Tucson, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Hyundai Tucson. 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 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and the Hyundai Tucson have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is much slimmer than the Hyundai Tucson, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is slightly shorter than the Hyundai Tucson, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Tucson.

Handling
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has the same turning radius as the Hyundai Tucson, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a little less horsepower than the Hyundai Tucson.

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

Warranty
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Hyundai Tucson.
