2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport vs 2017 Subaru Crosstrek

Are you hunting for the perfect crossover? You want something that’s not too expensive, still has power, and comes with all the wonderful convenience features that you have come to expect from a modern vehicle. We don’t blame you and that’s why we have put together this 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport vs 2017 Subaru Crosstrek comparison, so that you can see which crossover will better suit your needs.

It should be noted that the Outlander Sport is offered in both all-wheel drive and front-wheel drive across most of its lineup. In fact, the only trim that doesn’t offer both is the top level GT trim which only comes with an all-wheel drive configuration. The Crosstrek on the other hand is only available in all-wheel drive, which is fine for some, though others still prefer to have the front-wheel drive option. At least with Mitsubishi, the choice is truly yours.

2017 Outlander Sport performance and features

Price is often the first thing that our customers look at, and that’s perfectly understandable. Mitsubishi has nothing to hide, and in the case of the Outlander Sport, the price comes in at well below what you will find with the Crosstrek.

When it comes to power, the Outlander Sport can also outperform the Crosstrek. The Crosstrek relies on one engine across its entire trim level lineup, and that produces the 148 horsepower that you see here. The Outlander Sport’s engine also produces 148 horsepower until you get up into the SE, SEL, and GT trim levels that all come equipped with the 2.4-liter 168 horsepower engine.

Mitsubishi prioritizes your comfort. That’s why features like automatic climate control, comes standard on all Outlander Sport models for 2017. Now this feature is also available on the Crosstrek, but not on the base model trim, or even the middle-tier trim. You have to go all the way up to the top trim before automatic climate control enters into the picture. Not to mention that features like a panoramic sunroof aren’t even available on the Crosstrek. The Crosstrek does however offer a much smaller moonroof, but this feature doesn’t come standard on any of its vehicles and is instead an optional add-on that will also inflate your MSRP further.

We can talk about how the Outlander Sport is the better value until we are blue in the face, and we haven’t even mentioned the stellar powertrain and bumper-to-bumper warranties that Mitsubishi offers, which go well above the Subaru offering. If you simply want to try a Outlander Sport for yourself in the Libertyville area, then come down to Libertyville Mitsubishi, and we will set you up with the right model today!
