Recently redesigned, the all-new 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander features a stylish exterior and a capable, rugged ride that makes it perfect for the Cumming and Buford area. And with its assortment of interior comforts, the Outlander is similarly well-suited for Gainesville drivers. See how impressive the Outlander is for yourself by comparing it to the 2016 Mazda CX-3 before heading to Carriage Mitsubishi.


With an available 3L 24-valve MIVEC V6 engine, the 2016 Mistubishi Outlander offers drivers 224 horsepower and 215 lb-ft of available torque. The Outlander’s ride is both comfortable and robust, and its 105.1-inch wheelbase allows it to balance an incredibly smooth and stable ride with precise and nimble handling. This balance is also reflected in its MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension, which offers a responsive and intuitive handling while retaining a level of rigidity. The Outlander doesn’t just offer incredible performance, though – with an EPA-estimated 31 mpg highway, it also offers competitive fuel economy.

The 2016 Mazda CX-3 offers slightly better fuel economy, with its 35 mpg highway, but that is the only key category in which it can compete. Sporting a 2L inline 4-cylinder engine, the CX-3 only delivers 146 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque. That makes it significantly less powerful than its competition. With a front independent suspension and stabilizer bar rear suspension, the CX-3 also doesn’t offer the same level of rugged, responsive, and sporty performance, and, overall, doesn’t give Gainesville drivers the experience they need.


Next we’ll take a look at the features available on both vehicles. First, let’s examine the comforts offered by the Mitsubishi Outlander:

Now, let’s compare those to the features offered by the Mazda CX-3

  • Seating for five

  • Cloth-trimmed seats

  • Six-speaker audio system

  • Auxiliary audio input

  • Rearview camera

  • Conventional cruise control

Which Vehicle is Right for you?

The 2016 Mazda CX-3 does offer drivers competitive fuel economy, but it cannot compete in other important categories. The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander offers superior power and torque, a sportier suspension, and a more comprehensive and high-quality array of interior comfort-enhancing features. The winner of this match-up is clear.
