Review: Mitsubishi Outlander

February 26, 2015

Swerving into the spotlight comes the Mitsubishi Outlander 2014. Veering around its competition, Mitsubishi has always endeavoured to be innovative yet practical – delivering quality and affordability since its start in the shipbuilding industry.

Robust and reliable are two words which perfectly summarise the 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander. In today’s review, we’re taking a look at why the new Outlander is a breath of fresh air in a world of petrol fumes. Eager to get your hands on your own Outlander?

Design

We’re kicking off our Mitsubishi Outlander review by taking a closer look at its design. At first glance, the Outlander seems like the typical SUV. It’s not exactly a head-turner or a jaw dropper, but when you open the door and step inside – it’s clear that this is a car that is designed to feel like you never left home. The interior is lined with plush carpet, and the dash is finished in a sleek gloss black. This is complemented by a black leather wrapped steering wheel and chrome interior door handles – giving the Outlander a distinctively premium feel.

Performance

Available with a choice of two powerplants, the standard 2.2 litre turbocharged diesel emits 138g/km of Co2. The standard engine provides enough grunt to get the Outlander up to 124 mph – impressive for such a large SUV. While the diesel may not be the most eco friendly option, it delivers great acceleration thanks to its generous 147 bhp.

Things got interesting, however, when Mitsubishi unveiled the all-new Outlander PHEV Hybrid powerplant. Utilising a 2.0 litre petrol-hybrid unit, the Outlander PHEV delivers an incredible 148 mpg! With Co2 emissions at just 44g/km, the Outlander Hybrid delivers unrivalled cost-savings in its class. While performance figures take a small hit – the hybrid option is a sensible choice for cash conscious buyers.

Features

It’s clear that Mitsubishi is keen to ensure its drivers enjoy a comfortable ride, with every version of the Outlander coming with both cruise control and climate control. Not only that, but the inclusion of Sat-Nav, a USB port, Bluetooth connectivity and a reverse parking camera makes the interior somewhat high-tech. City crash prevention technology also means that it’s almost impossible to have an accident around town; the Outlander will immediately apply the brakes if you come too close for comfort with another vehicle at low speeds.

Luggage space is also generous, meaning you’ll be able to fill the Outlander with plenty of kit and still have room for the whole family – with a third row of rear jump seats available as an option.
