Initial Quality: Mitsubishi vs. Toyota (J.D. Power, 2021)
You could spend more than $35,000 on a new Toyota Highlander—but we think that most drivers will be happier with a new Mitsubishi Outlander that starts at almost $9,000 less than its rival! Of course, the 2022 Outlander isn’t just less expensive than the 2022 Highlander. With better gas mileage, a smaller frame, and a superior powertrain warranty, the Outlander has no trouble notching wins in key areas. What’s more, any driver comparing Mitsubishi for Toyota should know that our brand ranks higher in initial quality studies. You’ll see exactly what we mean in this comprehensive Outlander vs. Highlander comparison.
No driver who compares the Outlander vs. Highlander can afford to overlook the massive difference in price that separates these two models:
With the Outlander, you’ll continue to save long after driving home to Philadelphia or Morton, PA. That’s because the Highlander SUV’s fuel economy falls short:
The Highlander can seat up to eight passengers, while the Outlander can seat up to seven. Of course, if you don’t think you’ll need an eighth seat very often, you’ll probably find that the Outlander is much easier to drive. That’s because it’s nearly ten inches shorter than its rival from end to end! With a shorter three-row SUV, it’s easier to maneuver through tight parking lots, find spots on the side of the road, and get your friends and family where they need to go!
Many Delaware County-area drivers recognize Toyota as a reliable brand—and that’s why it’s so important to emphasize that Mitsubishi actually does better than Toyota in initial quality studies. Every driver who compares Mitsubishi vs. Toyota should know how each brand performed in J.D. Power’s latest Initial Quality Study:
With this low score, Mitsubishi ranks as one of the very best brands—and this study only tells part of the story. It’s also worth noting that Mitsubishi owners will enjoy up to ten years or 100,000 miles of powertrain warranty coverage. For those who choose Toyota, powertrain coverage will expire after just six years or 60,000 miles.
