Mitsubishi Outlander VS. Kia Sorento: The Southtowne Mitsubishi Comparison

When it comes to small, three-row SUVs, two contenders are a cut above the rest. The 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander and the 2020 Kia Sorento are on the market as two of the top small SUVs for a reason. Both contenders have high-powered engines, plenty of tech advancements as well as comfort features. Join us at Southtowne Mitsubishi near Provo, UT in a direct comparison of the two to find out which vehicle is the perfect fit for your lifestyle.


The Mitsubishi Outlander is more than generous when it comes to available standard features. For a small SUV, there is plenty of room for South Jordan, UT drivers and passengers alike with standard three-row seating. Good outward visibility from a low hood line and beltline along with narrow pillars and wide windows lets West Valley City, UT drivers see their surroundings with perfect clarity. Satellite Radio, Keyless ignition, premium cloth upholstery, heated seats, and a sunroof all come standard. The driver information is all controlled by one button.

The Kia Sorento is a convenient size for Salt Lake City families with plenty of features for the cost. Your passengers will enjoy the stylish and quiet interior and kids have the third row all to themselves.
