Does the Mitsubishi Outlander offer a better value than competitors?
To really show that these two SUVs are in the same class, they both come standard with front-wheel drive with available all-wheel drive, and they both have third row seating. That places the Pilot firmly in cross-shopping range of the Pilot, but then why such a price difference? If you’re thinking that maybe the prices get closer as you go up in trim levels, then you may want to think again. The higher each model steps the larger the gap gets until at the top level the Pilot is over $15,000 more expensive than the Outlander.
For all that cost what are you getting? Automatic climate control is surely available on the Pilot, but you will have to go up a trim level first and have an even larger price difference. The Outlander on the other hand offers automatic climate control as a standard feature across all trim levels.
Back to cost for a moment, the Honda brand has been known to be fuel efficient, but looking at this chart tells a different story. The Outlander is far and away more efficient, and that’s with the standard engine. This just makes the Outlander a better long-term value.
Speaking of long-term value, the Outlander also includes a warranty that leaves the Honda Pilot wanting on all fronts. Honda may be known as the reliable brand, but they only back that up with a 5-year or 60,000-mile powertrain warranty, which is nowhere near the 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty that Mitsubishi offers.
