The Outlander & Outlander Sport - What's the Difference?

Is the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander or Mitsubishi Outlander Sport More Your Style?


It's not easy to stand out in the compact SUV segment's deep sea of familiar names and impressive offerings, though the Mitsubishi Outlander and Mitsubishi Outlander Sport make it look exceptionally easy. These two unique off-road capable transports are loaded with value, protected with extensive warranties and flexible enough to lug plenty cargo.


Although the two tote similar names, looks and performance potential, the Outlander and Outlander Sport happen to be two completely different models. While the name may suggest one is a mere trim of the other, the two are cemented in two individualized spots in the Mitsubishi lineup.


Unless you intend on purchasing both models, however, you, as a prospective buyer, may be wondering how you can differentiate the two to determine which is more your style. We at Secor Mitsubishi wish to help. By comparing the base trims of Outlander and Outlander Sport, we hope to provide you a better semblance of which SUV route you may want to take.
