Comparison Review

Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Niro 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 Kia Niro.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport as you will with the Kia Niro, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Kia Niro. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Kia Niro.

The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is about the same width as the Kia Niro. When looking at overall length, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Niro.

With somewhat higher torque, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Kia Niro.

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

When it comes to horsepower, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport greatly out-muscles the Kia Niro.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and the Kia Niro. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has less cargo space than the Kia Niro, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Kia Niro.
