Though they both bear a similar name — and look relatively similar — the Outlander and Outlander Sport do have their differences. Below, we look at how these two vehicles differ to help make your decision a bit easier.
When it comes to size, the 2018 Outlander happens to be larger than the Outlander Sport. Because of this, it’s a great choice if you’re looking for extra passenger or cargo space. The three-row Outlander seats seven people and has a maximum cargo capacity of 63.3 cubic feet. If you’d prefer something with a smaller presence, than the Outlander Sport seats five — and it still manages to offer plenty of cargo space, with a maximum of 49.5 cubic feet.
Both models offer a modern, stylish cabin along with innovative standard features like automatic climate control and the FUSE hands-free infotainment system. Each model offers plenty of other features to choose from, too, including Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, and driver-assistance features like Blind Spot Warning and Lane Change Assist.
Under the hood, both the Outlander and Outlander Sport offer plenty of power. The Outlander comes standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, which puts out 166 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque. It has an EPA-estimated fuel efficiency of 25 mpg city and 30 mpg highway*, which is surprisingly good for its size.
Under the hood of the Outlander Sport, you will find a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. This puts out slightly less power with 148 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque, while also getting a lower EPA-estimated fuel-efficiency rating of 24 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.*
