When it comes to five-seat crossovers, the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and the 2019 Ford EcoSport are both popular picks. But which of these crossovers offers the most value to its buyers? This side-by-side comparison dares to answer that question.
Since both of these competing crossovers have seating for five, passenger space is neck and neck. The 2019 Ford EcoSport has a total of 91.1 cu. ft. of passenger volume. The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport tops that by a few feet, offering an SAE passenger volume of 97.5 cu. ft. While a few feet may not sound like a lot, it can make a big difference to passenger comfort during long rides.
The Ford EcoSport and the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport offer nearly identical fuel efficiency, but drivers will be stopping to fill up less frequently in the 2019 Outlander Sport. Its fuel tank capacity is 16.6 gallons, surpassing the Ford EcoSport fuel capacity of 13.8 gallons.
The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and the 2019 Ford EcoSport feature comparable model lineups with similar pricing along the way. However, when looking at what comes standard in each model of the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport compared to the similar model of the Ford EcoSport, it’s clear that the Outlander Sport offers more value. For instance, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport starts with a 7-inch touchscreen display with Bluetooth®, a feature that is not included in the Ford EcoSport base trim. The second trim of the Ford EcoSport does offer the SYNC® 3 infotainment system with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ for an extra cost. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport adds these features as standards in its second trim level.
Warranties are an important part of any new car purchase, and the 2019 Outlander Sport offers an extensive warranty that beats that of the 2019 Ford EcoSport. The Ford EcoSport comes with a 3 years/36,000 miles bumper to bumper and a 5years/60,000 miles powertrain. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport nearly doubles that with a 5 years/60,000 miles bumper-to-bumper warranty and a 10-year/100,000 miles powertrain warranty.
