When shopping for a new crossover, one of your first decisions is whether you prefer a compact or subcompact SUV. The latter is a relatively new category that includes small vehicles like the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. Here’s how this popular choice, a smaller version of the Mitsubishi Outlander, stacks up to a classic in the compact crossover category, the Toyota RAV4.
While both the Outlander Sport and the RAV4 are equipped with impressive tech features, the Mitsubishi features a larger 7-inch touchscreen compared with a 6.1-inch version in the Toyota. In addition, Mitsubishi’s system offers smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in the base model, neither of which are available in Toyota vehicles.
The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport fares slightly better at the pump than the RAV4. You’ll get an EPA-estimated 24/30 city/highway miles per gallon. With the RAV4, the numbers come in at 23/29 mpg. If saving money at the pump is your priority, consider the subcompact crossover.
The Outlander Sport earns accolades for its high-quality construction and soft-touch materials throughout the cabin. While the RAV4 is attractive, it’s mostly appointed with hard plastic finishes. You’ll also enjoy cushioned, comfortable seats and standard automatic climate control, which is available only as an upgrade in the RAV4.
The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is also one of the lowest priced subcompact SUVs available, making it a smart choice for budget shoppers who still want the latest amenities. In fact, it received the New England Motor Press Association’s Yankee Value Award for two years in a row. The Outlander Sport has earned the highest ratings in four out of five crash test categories from the Insurance Institute on Highway Safety.
