2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport vs 2018 Honda CR-V

Proudly Serving Gainesville, GA

Starting at just more than $20,000, the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a compact crossover SUV. The 2018 Honda CR-V is a compact crossover SUV that starts at more than $24,000. The All-Wheel Control and Traction Logic Control are some of the mechanical features that highlight the Outlander Sport’s superior off-road capabilities. This Mitsubishi also offers a premium sound system by Rockford Fosgate.

Handling

The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is equipped with an updated version of the Active Stability Control (ASC) system. Using several sensors to analyze the traction in each wheel, this sophisticated technology improves handling on slippery roads. If necessary, the ASC activates the conventional anti-lock braking system that’s standard in this crossover SUV. Linked to electronic sensors, the All-Wheel Control (AWC) delivers the correct amount of horsepower and torque to each axle. Dirt, snow, grass, rocks and sand won’t get in the way of this versatile drivetrain. The Traction Logic Control (TLC) is another signature technology that’s engineered to stabilize the wheels on rough surfaces. Whether it’s on a sloped urban road or steep mountain, the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport maintains good balance with some leverage from the Hill Start Assist. Designed primarily to prevent downward acceleration on a hill, this technology is also available in the 2018 Honda CR-V. However, Honda’s Real-Time AWD doesn’t match the off-road capabilities of the AWC. Both crossover SUVs offer a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that makes infinite gear combinations. If you want to control the gears in the Outlander Sport with a classic clutch, get a five-speed manual transmission.

Exterior Design

The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a sleeker and more aerodynamic profile than the 2018 Honda CR-V. When equipped with a manual transmission, the Outlander Sport has a curb weight of just more than 3,100 pounds. Each CR-V model registers well over 3,300 pounds on the weight scale. This Honda model has a 73.0-inch width and 66.1-inch height. Measuring 71.3 inches wide and 64.8 inches in height, the Outlander Sport is clearly more agile and versatile, especially on narrow roads and trails. Despite having a smaller frame, this Mitsubishi crossover SUV has an impressive ground clearance of 8.5 inches. The Honda CR-V can’t clear the ground by more than 7.8 inches. When it comes to exterior aesthetics, the Outlander Sport offers several lively color options, such as Octane Blue and Rally Red Metallic. These finishes look wonderful with 18-inch alloy wheels with a two-tone application. A rear spoiler, hood protector, body side moldings and alloy fuel doors are some of the vehicle’s other premium exterior features.

Interior Features

Appealing to tech-savvy drivers and passengers, the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and Honda CR-V support the latest mobile operating systems. These crossover SUVs offer Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity on the go. Both vehicles have Bluetooth for wireless management of phone calls and audio settings. With access to SiriusXM Satellite Radio, there won’t be a dull moment during a ride in these family cars. Rated at 330 watts, a nine-speaker audio system is installed only in the most expensive CR-V trim. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport offers nine speakers that are designed by Rockford Fosgate. You’ll enjoy more than 700 acoustic watts from this premium audio system that comes with quality-enhancing technology, such as the DTS Neutral Sound. A 10-inch subwoofer with dual coils and the Punch Control feature is part of the Rockford Fosgate system.
