Finding the perfect car for your needs can be difficult, especially with so many options out there. For many, though, the choice can come down to two brands – Mitsubishi and Subaru. Here, we compare these two Japanese carmakers and illustrate why you should consider making your next new vehicle a Mitsubishi
Cost of Ownership
While the initial price of your new vehicle is important, looking past this price tag and examining the vehicle’s cost of ownership is also vital. Mitsubishi is not only cheaper than Subaru at the sale with many of its vehicles offering budget-friendly pricing, but it also has a lower cost-to-own rate. According to a recent study, Mitsubishi has a lower estimate of total maintenance over 10 years compared to Subaru. In fact, it’s a significant $800 difference, which makes it easy to see that Mitsubishi can save you in the short- and long-term.
Variety is the spice of life. If you’re looking for a brand that offers more than just a few types of vehicles, then you should check out Mitsubishi over Subaru. While Subaru does offer some top-notch SUVs and sedans, it doesn’t have a wide range of options. Mitsubishi, on the other hand, has a hatchback, a sedan, an affordable plug-in hybrid, and a wide range of sedan and crossover sizes that will make it easy to find the right vehicle for your needs.
Part of owning a car is dealing with unexpected issues. That’s why it’s important to have a great warranty on your new vehicle. Both Mitsubishi and Subaru offer warranties when you purchase a new vehicle, along with roadside assistance, but Mitsubishi manages to stand out from the rest of the industry with ease.
The brand offers an outstanding 10-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty, a 5-year/60-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty, and a 5-year roadside assistance plan. Subaru sits with the rest of the industry, giving you a 5-year/60,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty, a 3-year/36,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty, and a 3-year roadside assistance plan.
