Serving Gainesville, Cumming, and Toccoa, GA
The best small, 7-passenger SUVs give you a remarkable balance of nimble performance, efficient packaging and safe operation. Two leaders in this group are the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander and the 2018 Honda CR-V. While the Honda is well-known, the Outlander is making new converts each day, thanks to its high-tech cabin, off-road capabilities, superior warranty and terrific value. Take them both out for test-drives – we think you’ll agree you get much more for your money with Outlander.
The top engine on the 2018 Outlander is a 3.0-liter V6 that outputs 224 horsepower and 215 lb-ft of torque through a class-leading CVT8 or a 6-speed automatic transmission to all four wheels. The top CR-V engine is a 1.5-liter turbo-4 with 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft of torque, coupled to an automatic CVT. The Outlander GT is rated for 3,500-lb. towing capacity, versus only 1,500 lbs. with the CR-V.
A great warranty can save you thousands of dollars over the service life of a vehicle. In this regard, Mitsubishi beats Honda hands down. To start with, the Outlander has a basic warranty of 5 years/60,000 miles, versus 3 years/36,000 miles for the CR-V. Unique to the Mitsubishi is a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, versus the Honda’s 5 years/60,000 miles. You get 7 years of rust protection on the Outlander against the CR-V’s 5 years, and the Mitsubishi roadside assistance program of 5 years/unlimited mileage outclasses the Honda’s 3-year/36,000-mile program.
Honda is well-known for its commitment to safety, and the CR-V is available with the Honda Sensing safety suite. However, the Mitsubishi Outlander takes a back seat to no one when it comes to safety, with features such as adaptive cruise control, lane-change assist, forward-collision mitigation with pedestrian detection, blind-spot warning and rear cross-traffic alert. The Outlander also provides hill start assist, active stability control, tire pressure monitoring system, and anti-lock braking system with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist.
