Serving Gainesville, GA

Compact SUVs are in high demand nowadays because they offer so many high-quality benefits. The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander and 2019 Kia Sportage are two incredible SUVs that fall under this category. Each vehicle has its attributes, but only one will sit at the top of the pinnacle. Let’s see what each SUV has to offer.

Value & Overall Benefits

The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander is a quintessential SUV at its core, but it offers crossover attributes. This vehicle will come in several trims, including the LE, SE, ES, SEL and GT 3.0. Mitsubishi is also offering many wheel sizes and styles. This automaker will let you build your very own Outlander that matches your specific taste. Kelly Blue Book presented the 2019 Outlander with the Five-Year Cost To Own Award. Thanks to its fuel efficiency, this vehicle will provide up to 25 mpg in the city while offering 30 mpg on the open highway.

The 2019 Kia Sportage is hip, stylish, and efficient thanks to its small size and exceptional engine components. The Sportage will come in three trim levels, including the LX, EX and SX Turbo. Fuel efficiency is another excellent attribute as the front-wheel-drive model provides a combined-mpg rating of 24 for city driving, and the all-wheel-drive model provides a combined-mpg rating of 22 on the open highway.


The 2019 Outlander is easy on the eyes thanks to its elegant exterior styling. This SUV has a blend of sharp angles and smooth curves. Outlander’s front fascia is very intricately designed, and it’s laced with a chrome appearance. The vehicle sits well-balanced on 18-inch wheels, which also gives it immeasurable height. Consumers can choose from many exterior paints, such as alloy-silver metallic, rally-red metallic, Labrador-black metallic, and many others. The shape of the LEDs are dynamic in appearance, and they blend in really well with the front grille.

The 2019 Sportage is very good looking thanks to its modern attributes. This SUV will come equipped with either a bright-chrome grille or a dark-chrome grille. Unfortunately, Kia missed the mark with the lackluster design of the front fascia. It’s unique, but it lacks any real character or styling. The Bi-Xenon projector-beam headlamps are probably the best exterior feature.


The Mitsubishi Outlander keeps you connected via popular apps. There’s a seven-inch touchscreen display that’s bold in appearance. Its leather-appointed seats are quite comfortable. Depending on the actual trim, heated front seats are an option; other features include Apple CarPlay, a remote-powered liftgate, and a Power Glass Sunroof.

The Kia Sportage comes equipped with a plethora of preventive-safety features. This SUV will offer USB ports and a 12-volt port. Steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters allow for effortless shifting, and there’s 60/40 rear-seat configuration.

In the end, the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander wins this battle because it merely offers more enjoyable features.
