Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Mitsubishi Outlander requires fewer stops at the gas station than the GMC Terrain, 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 GMC Terrain 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 GMC Terrain and the Mitsubishi Outlander have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The GMC Terrain 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 GMC Terrain takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the GMC Terrain transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

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

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the GMC Terrain will do just as well as the Mitsubishi Outlander, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the GMC Terrain and the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Utility
The GMC Terrain has less seating than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making the Mitsubishi Outlander the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the GMC Terrain as you will in the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the GMC Terrain is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Outlander.
