To provide maximum traction and stability on all roads, All-Wheel Drive is standard on the Outlander PHEV. But it costs extra on the Aviator.

Both the Outlander PHEV and the Aviator have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, driver knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, height adjustable front shoulder belts, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems, rearview cameras, rear cross-path warning and available around view monitors.

A significantly tougher test than their original offset frontal crash test, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety does 40 MPH small overlap frontal offset crash tests. In this test, where only 25% of the total width of the vehicle is struck, results indicate that the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is safer than the Aviator:

Mitsubishi’s powertrain warranty covers the Outlander PHEV 4 years and 30,000 miles longer than Lincoln covers the Aviator.

On the EPA test cycle the Outlander PHEV running on electricity gets better fuel mileage than the Aviator Grand Touring running on electricity (78 city/70 hwy vs. 54 city/58 hwy MPGe).

On the EPA test cycle the Outlander PHEV running its gasoline engine gets better fuel mileage than the Aviator Grand Touring running its gasoline engine (25 city/26 hwy vs. 22 city/25 hwy).

The Outlander PHEV can drive on battery power alone for up to 22 miles. The Aviator must run its internal combustion engine to move.

To lower fuel costs and make buying fuel easier, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV uses regular unleaded gasoline. The Aviator requires premium for maximum efficiency, which can cost 20 to 55 cents more per gallon.

The Outlander PHEV has a standard continuously variable transmission (CVT). With no “steps” between gears, it can keep the engine at the most efficient speed for fuel economy, or keep it at its peak horsepower indefinitely for maximum acceleration. The Aviator doesn’t offer a CVT.
