2020 Nissan Murano vs. 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

Crossover SUVs are the most popular vehicle platform in the United States right now. Nissan offers several options to buyers in dealership showrooms like the one at Charlie Clark Nissan. The challenge that faces buyers is finding a vehicle that meets their needs when faced with a nearly endless list of available options. A comparison of the 2020 Nissan Murano vs. 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport will show people in the vehicle-buying cycle that they need to be sure to examine all aspects of what they might want to buy. The two crossover SUVs have some very superficial similarities, but a look at the details will clear things up quickly. Nissan has built the 2020 Murano to outperform its Mitsubishi rival in almost every important metric. Customers can schedule a test drive with the 2020 Nissan Murano today at Charlie Clark Nissan by calling, 956-295-3028.

It would appear that the 2020 Nissan Murano and 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport are on equal footing. Both vehicles offer two rows of seating with a room for up to five passengers. Unfortunately for people interested in the Outlander Sport, that is about where the similarities end from an interior volume standpoint. In the interest of fairness, both the 2020 Murano and 2020 Outlander Sport offer very comparable legroom dimensions for the driver and front passenger of each model. However, the nearly two inches of additional legroom in the rear seat of the Nissan crossover SUV will allow taller passengers to be more comfortable than they would be in the same position in the Mitsubishi vehicle. If cargo volume is a buyer’s primary concern, the 2020 Murano is the clear choice, with up to 67 cubic-feet available. The Outlander Sport can only offer up to 49.5 cubic-feet.
