Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Equinox than in the Mitsubishi Outlander. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Equinox and the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Convenience
The Mitsubishi Outlander requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Chevrolet Equinox, making it more convenient to drive.

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). The Chevrolet Equinox is somewhat more expensive 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
The Chevrolet Equinox is a little wider than the Mitsubishi Outlander, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Equinox takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Drivetrain
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.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Equinox is clearly the choice over the Mitsubishi Outlander for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Equinox greatly out-muscles 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 a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Equinox is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Outlander.
