If you are trying to buy a new Mitsubishi vehicle and you cannot decide between the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander, the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEX, and the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, we get it. At first glance, these SUVs look very similar. But there are many differences that make these vehicles stand out against one another. You cannot go wrong choosing one of these vehicles, but at Leskovar Mitsubishi, we are here to help you decide which one checks off the most boxes of your needs.

Engine Performance

The power an engine has is an important spec on an SUV because it should still have the power to have a towing capacity. While both the Mitsubishi Outlander and Mitsubishi Outlander Sport have the same engines, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has alternative fuel for those that are trying to be more environmentally conscious.

Mitsubishi Outlander and Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

  • Base engine: 2.0L four-cylinder engine with 148 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque
  • Optional engine: 2.4L I-4 engine with 168 horsepower and 167 pound-feet of torque

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

  • 2.0L four-cylinder engine combined with two 60-kilowatt electric motors that put out 117 horsepower

Interior Space

All three vehicles have different amounts of space for the passengers and cargo. The Mitsubishi Outlander offers the most passenger space at seven people while the other two only fit five passengers. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has the most cargo space when all of the seats are folded down, while the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has the least. Whichever one you get will depend on how many passengers you need to cart around.

Mitsubishi Outlander

  • Cargo space with the seats down: 61 cubic feet
  • Front Space: 40.6 inches of headroom, 40.9 inches of legroom
  • Second Row Space: 38.4 inches of headroom, 37.3 inches of legroom

Advanced Safety Features

We know safety is a big deal to you. Today's advanced safety features use technology sensors to stop an accident from happening, but should one occur, they also lessen the impact your vehicle feels. All three of the SUVs have a wide range of safety features. Some of these standard and available features include:

  • Forward collision detection with automatic braking
  • Lane departure warning
  • Blind spot monitoring system
  • Rear cross-traffic alert
  • Automatic high beams
  • Adaptive cruise control

Modern Technology Features

When you drive around town or go on long road trips, do you sit in silence? Probably not. More than likely, you are listening to the radio or your music. When you do not know where you are going, do you look at a map or print out directions? Probably not. More than likely, you get on a map app on your phone and get the step-by-step directions. All of this can happen with the technology on the three SUVs. Some of the available technology includes:

  • Touchscreen display
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Six-speaker audio system
  • USB ports
  • Automatic climate control
  • Voice controls
