The 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander vs. the 2014 Honda CR-V


There is a new contender for the title of best compact crossover: the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander. The new Outlander recently arrived here at Lovering Mitsubishi, and it really is a fun, functional, and exceptional vehicle to drive. Additionally, the Outlander offers features and capabilities that other automakers don’t. In order to illustrate that fact, we have put together this comparison of the new Outlander and the current 2014 Honda CR-V.

Fuel Economy

Both the Outlander and the CR-V are rated by the EPA at 31 miles per gallon (MPG) on the highway. But in the Outlander, you can also get 25 mpg in the city, while in the CR-V you will only get 23 mpg. Over time, that small difference really adds up, especially since many people do the majority of their driving locally in stop-start traffic where more fuel is consumed.

Interior Capacity

The 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander offers seating for seven passengers to ride comfortably. Most small crossovers don’t generally offer more than the traditional two rows of seating. That is the case with the CR-V where only five passengers can fit inside. If you have a larger family, or simply want to load up all your friends, you will appreciate having those extra two seats. And when those extra seats are unoccupied, they can be used for additional cargo space.


Are you interested in features like a rear-seat entertainment system, parking assistance technology, and advanced navigation system, and keyless ignition? They are all available on the Outlander, but impossible to get on the CR-V. If comfort, convenience, safety, and functionality are your priorities, the Outlander can offer you things that other vehicles simply can’t
