2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Review
  • Focus on improved noise, vibration and harshness is noticeable; ride comfort is better than before, and so is the overall drive experience; well priced; looks better; can be had with seven seats
  • Interior could do with some more love, can't match the class leaders for space, comfort or presentation; media screen is frustrating to use

2016 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV set to adopt a different look to the regular range

The big news for buyers around the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander facelift is mainly around the way it looks - but the PHEV plug-in hybrid version is set to adopt a different appearance to the regular models. Mitsubishi Motors manager of C & D-segment product development project, Takao Matsui, told CarAdvice at the launch of the 2016 Outlander this week that there is an internal desire to make the PHEV model stand out from the heavily revamped range...

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Review: farewell to our long-termer

After six months of petrol-electric SUV driving, the time has come to return our Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

Over the period of our loan we learnt of things a lot about the car - some positive, some negative - but we still feel it offers unrivalled practicality at a price that no other plug-in hybrid car can compete with.

The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander has been caught with no disguise ahead of its local debut in April. Mitsubishi had given buyers an idea of what to expect from the updated model with its Outlander PHEV Concept-S show car, which debuted in 2014, but it is clear that some of the sharper lines haven't carried over to the production model based on these images, posted on Brazilian website Carplace...

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Review: LT3

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has been with the CarAdvice team for several months now, and in that time it has become part of the furniture. We’ve recently put it through its paces against the diesel version (read our Outlander PHEV v diesel comparison), and seen whether the most practical plug-in hybrid on sale in Australia can match it against other vehicles that rely on powerpoints (read our EV and hybrid comparison test here)...

Forget the torch - power your home in a blackout with a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

The days of hunting around for a torch or candles in the event of a blackout are over. If you have a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV in the driveway, you can (in Japan at least) use the stored electrical energy to power your home. Called V2H, or Vehicle to Home technology, the Outlander connects via its quick-charging socket (optional) to one of a number of home interfaces available in Japan...

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV v Diesel review : Which saves you money?

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has an eye-catching fuel consumption claim of 1.9L/100km - but can it achieve that figure in the real world? More importantly, how does the cheaper, more practical diesel Outlander compare in a grueling fuel consumption test?

We took to the ring roads and joined the urban rat race in Sydney to find out which works out to be the best buy - the new-tech plug-in hybrid, or the more conventional turbo diesel model...

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV v Mitsubishi Outlander diesel - fuel use challenge

Petrol or diesel? It has been a question that SUV buyers have been pondering for years. But now there’s a new form of propulsion to add to the mix: hybrid power. We’re not talking about just any old petrol-electric system here. We’ve brought together the diesel-powered version of the Mitsubishi Outlander and pitched it up against its medium SUV body-double and our long-term loan car, the Outlander Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV)...

Assembled for this mega-test are 10 models that represent one-third of total SUV volume in Australia – and that’s without including sales for the newest contender here and catalyst for this test, the Jeep Cherokee. It looks bold, it’s available only with petrol engines (for now), and it’s priced under $40,000 to compete with the mainstream...
