Value

Right out of the gate, the Outlander delivers exceptional value with a starting MSRP (excluding destination charges) $855 below the Rogue, $1,955 below the Sorento, and $6,905 less than the Santa Fe. The Outlander also provides seating for up to seven passengers, while the more expensive Sorento and Rogue only offer seating for five. You'll have to spend nearly $7,000 more in order to get the seven passenger seating found in the Santa Fe. In terms of value, the Outlander is the clear favorite.

Engineering & Efficiency

Every aspect of the Mitsubishi Outlander is engineered to meet higher standards. A rigid, yet lightweight frame minimizes body flex while providing athletic handling for an engaging driving experience. As a result, the Outlander boasts greater city, highway, and combined fuel economy ratings than either the Santa Fe or Sorento. Only the Rogue can compete in fuel efficiency, but it has a fuel tank that offers 2.1 gallons less capacity than the Outlander.

The advanced lightweight construction of the Outlander gives it the lowest curb weight of this group of crossovers, helping to boost fuel efficiency and improved handling. It also features the smallest turning radius of the bunch, allowing the Outlander to easily maneuver in and out of tight spaces.

Safety

With several advanced driver-assistive technologies available on the Mitsubishi Outlander, you'll be able to drive with peace of mind. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) awarded the 2018 Outlander with a 5-Star Front Passenger crash test rating. Only the Kia Sorento can match this rating while the Rogue and Sante Fe fall short. Additionally, the Outlander comes standard with a knee airbag. This additional level of protection can only be found on the Santa Fe. Some of the competition can match select safety equipment, but only the Mitsubishi Outlander offers a 5-Star Front Passenger crash test rating and a knee airbag at a lower cost than any of its rivals.


10 Years of Confidence - Powertrain Limited Warranty

Engineered to be among the longest-lasting vehicles on the road, every Outlander comes standard with a 10 Year / 100,000 mile powertrain limited warranty**. Compared to the Nissan Rogue, the Outlander provides 5 more years or 40,000 additional miles -- giving you peace of mind. As a result, the clear winner of this comparison is the Mitsubishi Outlander. Augusta Mitsubishi invites you to come experience all of the value, confidence, and style that comes standard on every Outlander model.
