Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Acadia than in the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and the GMC Acadia.

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 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will have less of an impact on your bank account than the GMC Acadia. 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 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and the GMC Acadia have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is much slimmer than the GMC Acadia, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is slightly shorter than the GMC Acadia, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has much lower torque than the GMC Acadia, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has a smaller turning radius than the GMC Acadia, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will do just as well as the GMC Acadia, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has a lot less horsepower than the GMC Acadia.

Utility
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has less seating than the GMC Acadia, making the GMC Acadia the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has less cargo space than the GMC Acadia, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV than that of the GMC Acadia.
