2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport vs. Subaru XV Crosstrek

It was only a few years ago that a great divide existed between early Internet adopters and those who shunned the technology outright. Regardless of the Internet’s advantages with respect to speed and convenience, a few folks remained skeptical and stood their ground, refusing to interface with the World Wide Web.

In many ways, the auto industry’s sport crossover segment is similar to the Internet in its early stages. The segment is clearly growing in popularity year after year as an entire host of new drivers discover the advantages inherent to a right-sized sport and utility. Of course, not everyone has been so quick to recognize the benefits of a relatively new automotive segment. For this reason, Continental Mitsubishi pits the 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport vs. Subaru XV Crosstrek. As a primer to the exciting world of sport crossover vehicles, the results of that comparison are laid out above.
