For better traction, the Outlander Sport has larger tires than the Kicks (225/55R18 vs. 205/60R16).

The Outlander Sport’s tires provide better handling because they have a lower 55 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Kicks S’ standard 60 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Outlander Sport has standard 18-inch wheels. Smaller 16-inch wheels are standard on the Kicks S. The Kicks’ largest wheels are only 17-inches.

The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport’s wheels have 5 lugs for longer wheel bearing life, less chance of rotor warping and greater strength. The Nissan Kicks only has 4 wheel lugs per wheel.

For superior ride and handling, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has fully independent front and rear suspensions. An independent suspension allows the wheels to follow the road at the best angle for gripping the pavement, without compromising ride comfort.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Outlander Sport’s wheelbase is 2 inches longer than on the Kicks (105.1 inches vs. 103.1 inches).

For greater off-road capability the Outlander Sport has a 1.5 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the Kicks (8.5 vs. 7 inches), allowing the Outlander Sport to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

The Outlander Sport GT’s standard wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically according to the amount of rainfall on the windshield. The Kicks’ manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.

The Outlander Sport’s standard outside mirrors include heating elements to clear off the mirrors for better visibility. Nissan only offers heated mirrors on the Kicks SV/SR.

The Outlander Sport has a standard center folding armrest for the rear passengers. A center armrest helps make rear passengers more comfortable. The Kicks doesn’t offer a rear seat center armrest.

To direct the driver from any location to a given street address with audible turn-by-turn directions, a GPS navigation system is available on the Outlander Sport. The Outlander Sport’s navigation system also has a real-time traffic update feature that offers alternative routes to automatically bypass traffic problems. (Service not available in all areas.)
