While both of these crossover SUVs are labeled as their brand’s athletic vehicles, you’ll find that the RAV4’s performance is better equipped to adapt to your various endeavors. It features a standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine which can achieve an impressive 176-hp and 172 lb.-ft. of torque. The Outlander Sport’s standard powertrain falls short with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that tops out at 148-hp and 145 lb.-ft. of torque. The RAV4 also comes standard with a 6-speed automatic transmission for smooth shifting, while the Outlander Sport forces you to upgrade if you don’t want a 5-speed manual transmission. Both come with the option for AWD, but you get additional peace of mind with the Dynamic Torque-Control that comes with the RAV4. Plus, the RAV4 keeps you on the road longer with 30 MPG hwy1 when the Outlander Sport only gets 29 MPG hwy2.

Cargo space is a big talking point, so our 2017 Toyota RAV4 vs 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport in Rockford, IL, will now give you the details. Whether your are picking up a friend and their luggage from Chicago Rockford International Airport or just packing up your sports gear, the RAV4 comes out on top in terms of interior space. You’ll get 38.4 cubic ft. of room3 with all seats in place, whereas the Outlander Sport only offers 21.7 cubic ft. of room. When you need more gear than passengers, the RAV4 wins again with an incredible 73.4 cubic ft. of maximum cargo space3. You may have to leave a few items at home with the Outlander Sport’s mere 49.5 cubic ft. of maximum space.  

When you want to take your friends along for the trip, they’ll certainly appreciate the RAV4’s spacious cabin with 38.9-inches of rear headroom and 37.2-inches of rear legroom.

Even with a full load of passengers, you’ll be able to back out with ease thanks to the RAV4’s standard backup camera4. This helpful feature will cost you a higher trim level in the Outlander Sport.
