Latest Outlander Sport and Tucson crossovers face off in new Libertyville Mitsubishi comparison

PR Newswire

LIBERTYVILLE, Ill., Sept. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — To show the value of the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, Libertyville Mitsubishi chose to compare it to other competing models. The list of models that the dealership has compared the Outlander Sport to in the past is long, and this month it has added another comparison to the list with the 2017 Hyundai Tucson.

In comparing the Outlander Sport against the Tucson, Libertyville Mitsubishi saw two key categories that the Mitsubishi outperformed its Hyundai competitor in. Value was the first category, and with the Outlander Sport offering a more affordable MSRP and better safety features with a similar warranty, the information favored the Mitsubishi model.

Customers often let features dictate their next vehicle purchase, and in that regard, the Outlander Sport outperformed the Hyundai Tucson once again. Key standouts in this category were convenience features like available rain sensing wipers and standard automatic climate control. The former isn’t available on the Tucson and the latter is only available on higher trim levels.

Prospective car buyers interested in the 2017 Outlander Sport or other Mitsubishi models like the Outlander should reach out to the Libertyville dealership. The team can be reached online at www.libertyvillemitsubishi.com or contacted by phone at 847-816-6660. Libertyville Mitsubishi is located at 1119 South Milwaukee Avenue in Libertyville, Illinois.
