Each with roomy seating for five and their excellent warranty coverage, the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and Hyundai Kona appear to have a lot in common. That, of course, makes it tricky to choose between them. But, luckily, our comparison guide is here to answer your questions.
Most in Modern Creature Comforts: 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
It might technically be a compact crossover, but the Outlander Sport puts you up in a roomy, comfortable cabin. And, since the Kona is technically a subcompact crossover, the Outlander Sport has more legroom to go around.
We must say that both models do a good job with their luxury offerings. As you climb the Outlander Sport or Kona trim levels, you’ll find everything from handsome leather upholstery to keyless ignition and entry. Both crossovers give you a taste of the finer things, but at a great rate.
Biggest Value: 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
If you’re looking to spend the least and get the most, we highly recommend the 2019 Outlander Sport. This peppy crossover might come with an economy price tag, but the Mitsubishi also impresses with a long list of standard features. Some highlights include the rearview camera, (making it easy to spot stray cats or grocery carts in your path), and automatic climate control. (Just set the perfect temperature and go.)
Of course, the Hyundai Kona offers a similarly economic price tag. And, although the Hyundai doesn’t give you standard automatic climate control, the Kona can match the Outlander Sport in terms of USB ports and Bluetooth wireless capabilities.
Best Warranty Coverage: It’s a Tie!
Both the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander and the Hyundai Kona have some of the best warranty coverage in the business. And they go toe-to-toe with their limited powertrain warranty (10 years or 100,000 miles) and their new vehicle coverage (five years or 60,000 miles). That’s a lot of peace of mind.
Thriftiest Ride: 2019 Hyundai Kona
Both of these crossovers make the most of your fuel budget. However, as the smaller of the pair, the Kona almost can’t help but get better EPA ratings. Depending on powertrain configuration, this peppy crossover earns up to 28 city and 32 highway mpg. In spite of its bigger size, the Outlander Sport can almost match these figures, earning up to 24 city and 30 highway mpg.
We think you’ll agree that the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander is the right compact crossover for your budget and your daily drive. It’s got the comfort you crave and an impressive list of features for your money. Best of all, it’s got some of the best warranty coverage out there, bolstering your peace of mind for years to come.
