2022 Mitsubishi Outlander vs. Its Competition

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Outlander returns to a niche that sprawls with top-selling, great-performing crossovers.

It shares running gear with the Nissan Rogue, which has a softer style.

Honda’s CR-V now comes in hybrid form like its arch-rival, the Toyota RAV4—but the Toyota’s also sold as a plug-in hybrid.

VW’s Tiguan has no-frills looks and an available third-row seat as small as that in the Outlander, while the Subaru Forester outpoints these players with stellar safety scores and excellent outward vision, thanks to its tall roof.
