One benefit to buying a new car is its warranty coverage. The Outlander comes with one of the best warranties in the industry with a five-year/60,000-mile Basic Warranty, a 10-year/100,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty, and five years of roadside assistance. With the RAV4, you will only get a three-year/36,000-mile Basic Warranty, a five-year/60,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty, and two years of roadside assistance.
If you think the RAV4 has better fuel efficiency than the Outlander, you would be wrong. The base-model Outlander gets an EPA-estimated 25 mpg city, 30 mpg highway, and 27 mpg combined, while the base RAV4 runs at 23 mpg city, 30 mpg highway, and 26 mpg combined.* In addition, thanks to its larger 16.6-gallon fuel tank, the Outlander has a range of up to 498 miles on the highway. The RAV4 will run dry after about 477 miles of highway driving.
The Mitsubishi Outlander comes standard with three rows of seats for up to seven passengers. The RAV4 only offers seating for up to five.
While both the Outlander the RAV4 come well-equipped, you will find better standard features in the base trim of the Outlander, including a 7-inch touchscreen display, heated mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, and 18-inch alloy wheels. On the RAV4, it only comes with a 6.1-inch touchscreen, 17-inch steel wheels, and neither heated mirrors nor automatic climate control.
At the base trim levels, the Outlander and RAV4 have nearly the same price. However, thanks to the Outlander’s great warranty coverage, fuel economy, extra passenger space, and features, you can get a lot more for your money.
So, if you want an SUV that the manufacturer strongly supports with great fuel efficiency, more seating, and better features for the same cost, the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander is the perfect choice. Come test drive the 2019 Outlander at Don Robinson Mitsubishi.
