The crossover segment is one of the hottest in the automotive market and for good reason. Combining the sedan-like style with the height, view, and capability of an SUV, it’s a perfect pick for those with families and road trips. The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander is pretty popular, just like the 2016 Ford Escape. The only question is which model comes out on top.
The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander is more practical than stylish, making it perfect for those who love the outdoors. With massive family appeal, there’s little this crossover can’t cover. The Outlander features three rows of seating for up to seven passengers. This crossover comes with a set of active safety features for peace of mind and passenger protection. Rounding out with a calm ride and quiet cabin, this is the perfect model for the family-oriented driver.
In the spirit of competition, the 2016 Ford Escape is more stylish but sacrifices some functional practicality as a result. Still, the crossover features available cargo space and a firm ride, perhaps too firm for some drivers.
When it comes to fuel economy, the Outlander comes out on top with an EPA-estimated 25 city/31 hwy mpg compared to the Escape’s 22 city/31 hwy mpg. In addition to better fuel economy, the Outlander also features a fuel tank that’s one and a half gallons larger than the Escape’s, meaning you can go further on a single tank of gas.
