Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV vs Competition

Competition Heats up in the Plug-In Hybrid SUV Market in Thornton, CO

The plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, or PHEV, market is one that has been expanding recently. More and more automakers are responding to consumer demand for cars with increased fuel economy and low-emission performance. The Mitsubishi brand currently has one plug-in hybrid SUV that is currently available for purchase or lease at Skyline Mitsubishi: the new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. We want to show you all that this new green SUV can do, so let us see how it compares to another well-known PHEV of its class: the Toyota RAV4 Prime.

You will find the new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV here on W 104th Ave in Thornton, CO. Skyline Mitsubishi is proudly serving the greater Denver, CO area.

Outlander PHEV vs RAV4 Prime: Price/Warranty

A big selling point of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is its affordable price, which starts out well under $40,000 and lets you enjoy a lot technology for less. The Outlander PHEV also comes backed by the extensive warranty coverage Mitsubishi has to offer, including a five-year/60,000-mile New Car Warranty and 10 years or 100,000 miles (whichever comes first) of limited powertrain coverage.

The Toyota RAV4 Prime begins under 40,000, but still begins almost $1,000 more than the Outlander PHEV. On average, drivers who choose our Mitsubishi hybrid crossover end up paying almost $3,000 less. Toyota warranty coverage is also considerably shorter than Mitsubishi coverage, with a three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and five years/60,000 miles of powertrain coverage.

Outlander PHEV vs RAV4 Prime: Interior

Both of these SUVs are classified as compact crossovers, yet both have a decent amount of space for five passengers. However, the Outlander PHEV has a bit more space for you, your copilot, and backseat passengers with almost 40 inches of front headroom and almost 38 inches of rear leg room. The Toyota RAV4 Prime contains up to 39.5 cubic feet of cargo volume, with up to 39.5 inches of rear legroom as well. While this change might be small, those who want to enjoy every last inch of breathing room as they drive through Arvada, CO may prefer the Outlander PHEV.

On the inside of the plug-in Outlander, shoppers can find a luxuriously-crafted cabin, with standard leather-appointed seats and other stylish suede/leather styling options available on select trims. The RAV4 Prime offers leather seating on higher trim levels, for a larger price, but its base trim features mere fabric seating.

Outlander PHEV vs RAV4 Prime: Efficiency

Toyota models are well-known for their fuel economy, and the RAV4 Prime is of course, no exception. However, as fuel efficient as the RAV4 Prime is, it might fall short in long-term economy, especially when in its hybrid drive mode. In hybrid model the RAV4 Prime can travel up to 40 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway, whereas the Outlander PHEV can reach up to 774 mpg-equivalent with combined electricity and gasoline performance.

Likewise, the Outlander PHEV takes considerably less time to recharge, ensuring your busy schedule in Westminster, CO remains uninterrupted. With the available 120-volt/12A charging cable, the Outlander PHEV takes only nine hours to recharge, while a 240V/16A charger gets you fully charged in about four hours. With the RAV4's standard 120V power cable, the battery gets fully charged in 12.5 hours, while its 240V charging cable takes up to 4.5 hours to reach a full charge. A higher kilowatt charging cable is available on both SUVs, but even this cable takes 2.5 hours to charge the RAV4 Prime fully, whereas, with the Outlander PHEV it takes only 25 minutes.
