The Mitsubishi Outlander and Hyundai Santa Fe offer an abundance of safety features that are designed to keep you and your occupants safe. Each vehicle features standard airbags for both front-drive and passenger, front side-impact, side-impact head, front seatbelt pretensioners, and rear side curtain. They both also received a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Though because of Mitsubishis RISE construction design, it excels over the Santa Fe in the amount of G forces across the various tests. Also, in the front seat test, the drivers and passenger's chest movement is less in the Outlander, meaning it keeps the body more planted in the seat.


The Outlander features three different powertrains while the Santa Fe offers two different engine options; however, the Outlander is the one equipped with an electric powertrain option. The Outlanders base engine is a 2.4-litre MIVEC four-cylinder that produces 166 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque, while a V6 option with its 3.0-litre engine produces 224-horsepower. The class-exclusive PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle is a unique blend of gasoline and electric power. The 2.4-litre is paired to a continuously variable transmission while the V6 boats a regular six-speed automatic transmission. For 2020 the Santa Fe offers a 2.4-litre and a turbocharged 2.0-litre, both four-cylinder. There is no option for a hybrid or plug-in hybrid leaving the Santa Fe at a disadvantage.
