If you’re considering a new crossover purchase, put the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport high on your list. The Outlander Sport delivers better warranty coverage, more powertrain options, and a roomier interior than its competitor, the 2019 Chevrolet Trax.
When you spend your hard-earned money on a new vehicle, it’s important to know that the automaker vouches for its quality with solid warranty coverage. That’s exactly what Mitsubishi does with the Outlander Sport, providing basic coverage for five years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first. In comparison, the Chevrolet Trax only offers a three-year/36,000-mile warranty. The Outlander Sport is also protected by a 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty that easily beats the five-year/60,000-mile coverage offered by the Trax.
With the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, you have more than one powertrain option. You can choose between a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 148 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque, or a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that packs a bit more punch with 168 horsepower and 167 lb-ft of torque. You can also choose between a Sportronic® continuously variable transmission or a five-speed manual. With the Chevrolet Trax, though, you’re limited to a single powertrain, even on higher trims: a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 128 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque and comes with a six-speed automatic transmission
. Cargo and passenger space
Adequate cargo and passenger space is a key consideration for any crossover purchase. With the Outlander Sport, you’ll get both: 49.5 cubic feet of total cargo space, along with 41.6 inches of front legroom and 36.3 inches of rear legroom. In comparison, the Chevrolet Trax is more cramped, offering just 48.4 cubic feet of total cargo space, 40.8 inches of front legroom, and 35.7 inches of rear legroom.
