The current versions of the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and Mazda CX-3 both have a similarly impressive array of comfort, performance and safety features. That said, we will concentrate on the features that make the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport stand out.

It’s an SUV:

Powerful, Rugged and Roomy; Mitsubishi designed the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport with adventure seekers in mind. Let’s face it, you buy an SUV for added utility, that is what the “U” in “SUV” stands for! The Outlander trumps the CX-3 in horsepower, ground clearance and interior space for both Passengers and Cargo alike. Whereas the CX-3, branded as a Crossover vehicle, has an undeniably attractive design, it is much more suited to urban dwelling.


I am sure you expect to hear about wireless charging, infotainment and power seat options here, but as I stated before, both vehicles come with great standard equipment with optional features and accessories. Our breakaway feature is that the Outlander’s gas tank holds 31% more than the CX-3. That translates to considerably fewer stops at the pump, how’s that for convenience!


Always a determining factor in the race for #1, is the cost factor. This debate has a few considerations when looking at these two compact SUVs. Although both models range between $20K-$26K, the 2019 Outlander Sport has more flexible price points offering five trim levels, while the CX-3 only has three. To put a more definitive point on value for your dollar, just take a look at the Outlanders warranty options that cover double what is offered on the CX-3.
