View New Inventory

The 2016 Honda HR-V and the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport might both be entrants into the increasingly competitive subcompact crossover segment, but they’re far from equals. There’s a clear choice when you start comparing them directly. That’s why we’ve done the work for you to spell out the key differences below; so, if you’re looking for a new subcompact crossover in the Frankfort and Orland Park, IL area this year, read on to find out more!

Powertrains and Efficiency

Shopping for a subcompact crossover SUV is a task of balancing utility and efficiency, and the 2016 Honda HR-V simply does a better job at this than the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. While both models get small four-cylinder engines, the Honda HR-V is rated by the EPA at 28 mpg city/35 mpg highway/31 mpg combined* when equipped with the continuously variable transmission and front-wheel drive. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is rated at only 24 mpg city/30 mpg highway/26 mpg combined based on EPA estimates with front-wheel drive. The Outlander does make slightly more power than the HR-V, but only a few horsepower – hardly enough to justify the significantly higher gas bill.

Interior Versatility

The 2016 Honda HR-V is small but it offers big cargo space – in fact, it offers a whole lot more than the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. The HR-V can fit up to 58.8 cubic feet of cargo with the rear seats folded down or up to 24.3 cubic feet with the rear seats up. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport will only hold up to 49.5 cubic feet with the second row folded down and up to 21.7 cubic feet with the seats up. The HR-V also offers more passenger volume with a total of 100.1 cubic feet, while the Outlander Sport only offers 97.5 cubic feet. That translates into more headroom front and rear, more second row legroom, and more front row hiproom in the Honda HR-V.

Smart Features and Options

The 2016 Honda HR-V comes with some important features that you’ll miss in the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. First off, it comes standard with a rearview camera that makes parking and reversing safer and easier. Second, it gets underseat storage, a second row split 60/40 folding and reclining bench seat, and a stereo anti-theft system. None of those come standard in the Mitsubishi.
