Searching for an SUV can be challenging, especially with so many options on the market. Four strong competitors in the segment are the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander, Subaru Outback, Mazda CX-5, and Ford Escape. All four models have excellent features, but when you compare them side-by-side, there’s a clear winner among the group.

The Mitsubishi Outlander offers seating configured for up to seven people, while the other three models only seat up to five passengers each. The Outlander offers 128.2 cubic feet of passenger volume so you can stretch and feel comfortable on any road trip; the others follow slightly behind. The Outback offers 108.1 cubic feet of passenger space while the CX-5 offers 103.6 cubic feet and the Escape offers 98.7 cubic feet.
