The 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander and the 2020 Hyundai Tucson are two of the most popular SUVs on the market today. They have a number of similarities, so you need to learn more about them to determine which one is the right choice for you and your family.

Take account of everything about the vehicles including reliable, gas mileage, transmission, engine, drivetrain, cargo space, speed, brakes, seating, and towing. Below is a comparison so you know which one you want when you get to the dealership.

Reliability

When you buy an SUV for your family, you need to be able to rely on it to get you to all of the soccer practices and play dates on your schedule. The Mitsubishi Outlander has a reliability rating a whole 34 points higher than the Tucson. This means you'll be less likely to have to worry about things going wrong unexpectedly.

Gas Mileage

When you're driving around town, you want a vehicle that can get you there without using too much gas. The Mitsubishi Outlander gets an EPA-estimated 27 MPG in the city. The Tucson gets a little less, at an EPA-estimated 25 MPG in the city. That little difference can end up making a significant dent in your wallet.

Transmission

The Outlander offers a CVT (continuously variable transmission). This technology allows your car to automatically stay at the best settings for the highest fuel efficiency or at top horsepower. The Tucson relies on a more conventional six-speed automatic transmission.

Drivetrain

Both the Mitsubishi Outlander and the Hyundai Tucson are front-wheel drive vehicles that are available with an all-wheel drive option.

Engine

Both of the Mitsubishi Outlander's standard engine options provide more horsepower than the equivalent Tucson engine. This means your vehicle will be more powerful.

Brakes

When you need to stop suddenly, you want a vehicle that can stop before an accident occurs. Both vehicles were tested on how far it would take for them to stop when going 60 mph. The Outlander will stop in 119 feet. The Tucson will stop in 128 feet. That means that you have a whole nine additional feet to prevent an accident.

Speed

Some people like to go fast. The Tucson can go 0 to 60 MPH in 11 seconds. The Outlander goes 0 to 60 MPH in just a little less time, at 10 seconds.

Seating

SUVs are generally known to be family cars. That means you need a car that everyone in family can fit in. The Outlander can seat seven people comfortably. The Tucson can only seat five people comfortably. Even if you only have five people in your family, it's nice to have space for friends.

Towing Capability

You never know when you may need to tow something. When you do, you'll be grateful to have a vehicle to handle the job. The Mitsubishi Outlander can tow up to 3,500 pounds. The Tucson, on the other hand, can only tow 1,500 pounds.

Cargo Space

There are times when you may need to fill up your vehicle with groceries, school clothes and supplies, or sports equipment. The Outlander has 34.2 cubic feet, which edges the Tucson's 31 cubic feet.
