Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Equinox offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mitsubishi Outlander, with comparable head- and legroom. The Mitsubishi Outlander offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Equinox, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Equinox as you will with the Mitsubishi Outlander, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Equinox will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mitsubishi Outlander. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Mitsubishi Outlander have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Equinox is much slimmer than the Mitsubishi Outlander, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Equinox takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Handling
The Chevrolet Equinox has a larger turning radius than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Chevrolet Equinox has a little less horsepower than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Chevrolet Equinox does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Utility
The Chevrolet Equinox has less seating than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making the Mitsubishi Outlander the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Chevrolet Equinox has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mitsubishi Outlander.
