2017 Mitsubishi Outlander vs 2017 Toyota RAV4
What are sport utility vehicles all about? Are they about raw power under the hood, enough power that you can tackle the wildest outdoor adventures you can conjure up? Are they about being hulking beasts that allow you to tower over the rest of traffic, seeing ahead for blocks at a time and feeling like you are in command of the entire road? While that may certainly be a perk for some SUVs, there is a lot more to it than that. You certainly want an SUV to be powerful enough to be capable of taking you where you want to go, but that does not have to come at the expense of efficiency. These days, SUVs and crossovers benefit from advances in engineering that allow these vehicles to be more affordable both in the short term and long term. These vehicles have evolved into leaner and more agile automobiles, and there are quite a few of these out there for your choosing. Which one is right for you? Let’s take a look at the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander vs the 2017 Toyota RAV4.

|7 People||Seating Capacity||5 People|
|1,500 Pounds||Towing Capacity||1,500 Pounds|
2017 Mitsubishi Outlander seating and towing capacity
Both of these vehicles are fine examples of what makes today’s SUVs so appealing, but the Mitsubishi model pulls ahead in a number of key areas. They are almost identical in terms of fuel economy, but the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander can get an estimated 25 city miles per gallon, while the 2017 Toyota RAV4 falls just a bit shy of that with 23 city miles per gallon. One reason you may want an SUV is for the added seating capacity, especially if you have a large family to care for. The Outlander can sit as many as seven people inside, whereas the RAV4 just has seating for the usual five people that you can find in sedans and coupes. With this much seating, you do not have to worry about leaving people behind. Everyone can come along for the fun! In that sense, if you are bringing everyone up north for a big weekend on the lake, you’ll be able to tow 1,500 pounds behind you, so go ahead and bring along that extra trailer or your canoes and get ready for an adventure you won’t forget.
