Are you on the hunt for the perfect crossover? Your search ends at Benson Honda, because we have some incredible crossovers for you to fall in love with! But first, you’ll need to weigh your options before you make a car purchase, so your researching ends here, too! Today we’re comparing two rival crossovers: the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and the 2016 Honda HR-V in San Antonio. On your mark, get set, let’s compare!
When it comes to safety, both vehicles are fairly equal. Both the Outlander Sport and the HR-V come equipped with standard frontal, front-side impact, side-impact driver/passenger airbags, four-wheel anti-lock breaks, traction control, electronic stability systems and available all-wheel drive. However, the HR-V stands out just a little with its blind spot mirrors that use wide-angle convex mirrors mounted in the corner so you won’t miss a thing in your blind spot. The Outlander sport doesn’t have this system at all.
As far as passenger and cargo space goes, the HR-V has the Outlander beat. The HR-v has almost 3 more cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seat up, and almost 10 more cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seat folded. If you choose the HR-V, you won’t have to worry about leaving something behind on your next trip because of lack of space! In addition to more cargo space, the HR-V also has more passenger space than the Outlander Sport (2.6 more cubic feet, to be exact). Your cargo, and your precious cargo, will be much more comfortable in the Honda HR-V in San Antonio!
If you’re looking for an ultra reliable car, Honda has a history of being more reliable than Mitsubishi in several different ways. Firstly, there are 69% more Honda dealers than Mitsubishi dealers so should you ever have a problem with your HR-V, there’s a good chance you’ll find a dealer near by to quickly and efficiently help you out. Secondly, J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Study showed that Honda ranks 8th in initial quality, while Mitsubishi ranks 30th. J.D. Power and Associates also conducted a dependability survey of owners with three-year-old vehicles and showed Honda ranks 5th while Mitsubishi ranks 15th.
The choice is clear, the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport just doesn’t compare to everything that the 2016 Honda HR-V in San Antonio has to offer! If you agree, we’d love to see you in our Benson Honda showroom to see one for yourself or even take a test drive! See you soon!
