Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda CR-V than in the Mitsubishi Outlander. The Mitsubishi Outlander offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V, 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 Honda CR-V 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). The Honda CR-V 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. In this case, the Honda CR-V will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Dimensions
Since the Honda CR-V is much wider than the Mitsubishi Outlander, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Honda CR-V takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Honda CR-V transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Handling
The Honda CR-V 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 Honda CR-V will do just as well as the Mitsubishi Outlander, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Honda CR-V has a little more horsepower than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Utility
The Honda CR-V has less seating than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making the Mitsubishi Outlander the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Honda CR-V has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda CR-V is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Outlander.
