The Mitsubishi Outlander has, in recent years, earned itself a spot alongside the market's most popular SUVs. Offering drivers a winning combination of seating, solid performance, great features and unparalleled value, it's not hard to see why many drivers have been adopting it as their SUV of choice.

Perhaps the best way to see what the Outlander has to offer? Putting it up alongside one of its chief competitors: the Toyota Highlander. A favorite among many family drivers, the Highlander is the perfect SUV to show exactly how much the Outlander really has to offer.

The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander

The central theme of the Outlander is value. With a starting price under $25,000, the Outlander is one of the few vehicles in the compact crossover class to offer seven seats. Better yet, even with the base model trim, you'll enjoy a suite of features that really hammers home what a bargain it is.

Performance: 2.4-liter inline-4 (166 horsepower, 162 pounds-feet of torque, 25/30 miles per gallon), 3.0-liter V6 (224 horsepower, 215 pounds-feet of torque, 20/27 miles per gallon), 2.0-liter 4-cylinder + twin AC synchronous motors (117 horsepower, 137 pounds-feet of torque, 74 miles per gallon equivalent)

Feature Options: Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control, Keyless Entry, Push Button Start, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Automatic Headlights, Power-Folding Mirrors, Rain-Sensing Wipers, Windshield Wiper De-Icer, Blind-Spot Monitoring, Forward Collision Mitigation System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane-Departure Warning

Starting Price: $25,000

The 2018 Toyota Highlander

A full-size SUV with seating for eight, the Highlander is a powerful SUV with an excellent selection features. This includes Toyota's valuable suite of standard safety features.

Performance: 2.7-liter inline-4 (185 horsepower, 184 pounds-feet of torque, 20/24 miles per gallon), 3.5-liter V6 (295 horsepower, 263 pounds-feet of torque, 20/27 miles per gallon), 3.5-liter V6 + AC 650-volt permanent magnet motors

Starting Price: $32,00

The Toyota Highlander is a great SUV with a lot to offer. Its eight-person seating capacity and robust feature suite might make it attractive for a number of different drivers. It's also, however, seven thousand dollars more expensive than the new Mitsubishi Outlander. While the Outlander's smaller size does mean it's less spacious, it's hard to argue with those savings. That's especially true when you consider its seven-seat passenger capacity. The Outlander also benefits from high safety ratings and a genuinely impressive selection of features for its price. In our opinion, that helps it come on top of larger SUVs like the Highlander.
