Here at Fairfield Mitsubishi, our inventory of Outlander Sport is just what you need to make the most of your next road trip. From its inventive interior, innovative technology, and stylish finishes, you'll feel right at home while on the road. The new Outlander Sport is similar to the Honda HR-V, but we find that the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is better catered to your driving needs both on and off the road. We want you to make a decision that feels best, which is why we have laid out some of the key differences and similarities between these two models so when the time comes to sign the papers you feel 100% confident.

Differences in Performance

Rain or shine, ice or snow you want to feel confident knowing you can get to your next destination with ease. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport features electronically controlled All-Wheel Control that monitors the road beneath the tires. This system works to distribute power evenly to the wheels which will overall better your traction and handling on tough terrain and on slippery surfaces.

Under the hood the Outlander Sport showcases an impressive 2.0L MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve-timing Electronic Control) engine that makes for a smoother drive. There is also an even more powerful 2.4L MIVEC engine on the GT trim option.

The Honda HR-V comes with available all-wheel-drive, but it does not come standard. This system will send power to all four wheels which assists in cruising over uneven terrain and through snowstorms.

Available Technology

As the world around us is constantly updating, so is the technology inside our vehicles. The Outlander Sport comes with a host of available and standard features that provide you with more connectivity services. There is an available eight-inch Smartphone Link Display that also features Bluetooth® connectivity, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The Honda HR-V also hosts an array of similar technological features like available Apple CarPlay integration, but you won't receive Android Auto giving Android Users limited connectivity usage. The Honda HR-V also has a smaller touchscreen that is seven-inches in compared to the Outlander Sport's eight-inch screen making it more difficult to shuffle through its features and navigation.

Differences in Design

When you opt for the Outlander Sport, the exterior beautifully matches the interior. The overall aesthetic is modern and refreshing, while the Honda HR-V features a more dated design. The new Outlander Sport features upscale fabrics heated front seats and newly designed HVAC control that all come standard. There are also available heated front seats to keep you cozy on those chillier mornings.

The Outlander Sport has now upgraded its cargo floor to be lower, so you have additional room. There is a 60/40 split for more versatility, 49.5 cubic feet space behind the front seats and to make it even better a one-touch seat-release button!

The Honda HR-V also has seating for up to five and available leather-trimmed seats. There are available heated front seats and an available leather-wrapped steering wheel.


We hope that the given information has gotten you excited about the possibilities in the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. While it does share similarities with the Honda HR-V, you'll be equipped with more luxurious features that come standard when you opt for the Outlander Sport.
