The new Outlander features leading fuel economy and environmental performance that exceeds expectations. Equipped with a suite of efficient technologies and constructed to be lightweight and aerodynamic, the new Outlander fires on all cylinders. The super-efficient DI-D engine realises unprecedented fuel economy and low emissions and features both our Auto Stop & Go technology and a new Eco driving mode engaging features across the car that save on fuel consumption.
Spacious, well-made and versatile; capable, comfortable and consistent; durable and honest; the Mitsubishi Outlander is the great all-rounder in its class.
Never shouting, never showy, this is a car for people who need their car to do a job, not just to make a statement. It is a modern SUV, designed for modern-thinking folk, so it also does its job with respect. It is an SUV which can seat up to seven people (all in properly padded seats with plenty of leg-room) or swallow a couple of mountain bikes whole, yet it won’t take over your garage or dominate your drive since its footprint is smaller than that of most family estates. It is comfortable and capable, and it provides all the high-vantage, big car protection you could ask for, yet it does so in such a way as to minimise injury to pedestrians or damage to vehicles lighter than itself. It offers loads of cutting-edge technologies which make driving safer and easier, and a whole host of luxuries which make it far more pleasurable. And its styling is refined: mature and tasteful, with just enough attitude to give it presence. In all, it’s the SUV you can rely on to do exactly what you want, when you want, day after day after day. And you don’t need to take just our word for it – it’s a fact backed by the results of the latest What Car? Reliability Survey.
This Mitsubishi ingenuity is personified in the Outlander. For starters, this is no MPV in racy clothing since every single Outlander benefits from Mitsubishi’s electronically controlled four-wheel drive. This AWC (All Wheel Control) system offers three selectable four-wheel drive modes, and is an ‘on demand’ system, which means that the car automatically calculates the optimum amount of torque required at each wheel, depending upon driving conditions. So, in 4WD ECO the Outlander operates in front wheel drive for fuel-efficient driving but, if the system detects a deterioration in road conditions, torque is automatically allocated to the rear wheels to help maintain safe progress. For improved traction on slippery road surfaces 4WD AUTO controls the distribution of power to all four wheels, as well as enhancing stability whilst towing under all road conditions. To cope with more challenging off-road terrain such as mud, sand or wet grass, 4WD LOCK increases the amount of torque sent to the rear wheels to ensure maximum traction. As you’d expect from a Mitsubishi, this is an SUV with a four-wheel drive system man enough to actually take you off the road.
Those in-the-know have long recognised Mitsubishi to be the clever car company. Over the years we have been quietly innovative in terms of automotive engineering: our name is synonymous with both road-hugging and terrain-taming four-wheel drive technology; we’re known for our intelligent use of space (it’s not widely known but we were the very first manufacturer to introduce a layout now known as the MPV and we pioneered the concept of tall cars with a small footprint); and we’ve approached the hybrid concept from a totally different angle, resulting in a vehicle which has revolutionised EV sales in every country where it is available.
In the Outlander, comfort is the name of the game. It is refined and relaxing for driver and passengers alike, with little noise from engine, road or wind whatever your speed. Handling is predictable, thanks to a wide track and a chassis designed for accuracy, whilst its suspension is forgiving over bumpy roads and provides a notably polished ride; steering is light and there’s always plenty of grip and traction, even in two-wheel drive. The 6-speed manual transmission is fine and precise, and the automatic equally impressive, with steering column-mounted shift paddles providing a manual option for when the mood takes. A 2.2 litre engine delivers decent punch (150 PS and plenty of torque to hustle along when you feel the desire to put pedal to metal) with a frugal and clean running nature: manual models with their Auto Stop & Go function deliver over 53 mpg and automatics in excess of 48 mpg. Furthermore, an Eco Drive Support System helps to maximise environmentally responsible driving pleasure at the flick of a switch, instigating energy saving controls for the engine (where it prohibits excessive acceleration), air conditioning and four-wheel drive systems (by only utilising 4WD when the wheels slip).
