Advantages of the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander

To begin, let’s note a couple similarities. First, both SUVs share similar starting MSRP. However, the Outlander is a bit cheaper. Secondly, both SUVs can seat up to seven passengers. This seating capacity is ideal for families or drivers that like to carpool.

While these vehicles share these similarities, the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander offers many advantages. If you are the type of driver that travels often, then you know how important fuel economy is. The 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander surpasses the Tiguan in both city and highway mpg. Do you enjoy smooth and fast transitions between gears? If so, then you will love the 2-speed CVT inside the Outlander. Let’s not forget how cold winter gets here in Wilmington! To help keep you warm, heated front seats come standard in the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander. Meanwhile, if you get the Tiguan, you will be forced to upgrade for this feature. Lastly, Volkswagen has reduced their warranty coverage for its 2020 models. This means that Tiguan drivers will not be protected nearly as long as those who choose the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander.

After reading about some specs between both competitors, we hope that your important decision was made easier. If you have questions about the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander, be sure to contact us here at D&E Mitsubishi.
