2016 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS (4x4) review

A recent Sydney to Brisbane road trip gave me the ultimate opportunity to test every facet of the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander's abilities and credentials. From the hustle and bustle of Sydney's urban grind and stop-start traffic, to the great Pacific Highway up the east coast, and even a cheeky little dabble into some off-road and sports action over the twisty country and rural stretches around Kyogle in rural NSW...

2015 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS (4x4) review

  We bought this car to continue the SUV trend from an X-Trail to get some space for the dog and the remaining child (well, teenager) occupying our home. We have now realised we don't need the size, so it's off to the car yard after three years' ownership. The ride is comfortable and I felt the Outlander had less body roll than others in its class, but it's no sports car...

2016 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS (4x4) review

I updated to the Mitsubishi Outlander XLS diesel from a 2008 Nissan X-Trail diesel auto, a great little performer, and was disappointed that it wasn't available with a higher towing capacity in the newer model. Hence, I looked around at all the midsize SUVs to find a two-tonne, 200kg ball weight towing vehicle...

2015 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS (4x4) Review

So this is a return to an automatic (or CVT actually) after numerous manuals ... so why. My last car was a Nissan X-Trail T31 in 6 speed manual which no one wanted to trade because of the transmission. So the hunt began for an auto I could live with and I found the paddle shifter equipped Outlander XLS. This feature has become one of my favourite as it allows the engine to use its full range...

2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Aspire Phev Hybrid Review

Bought one of these second hand with 15,000 k on the clock. Very happy with this car. With day to day running about, including towing a trailer, I feel cheated if I get over 1.0 L/100 km. Usually get 0 - the challenge is to drive around without starting the ICE. I gets charged every night (10 amp charger supplied by dealer at no cost)...

2015 Mitsubishi Outlander ES (4x2) Review

The OUTLANDER has proven to be alright, as this is my second one, the last one I had for nearly 5 yrs. I have had a few things go wrong with the SUV since purchase in Aug 2015, the power steering stopped working a number of times, then a fuse went which caused the remote not to work so I could not lock the car, nor open the boot, I had no touch controls, no reverse camera...

2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Aspire Phev Hybrid Review

I have owned this car for over a year now and cannot talk highly enough about it. I had been waiting for a suitable hybrid to come to the marked that I could actually fit my mountain bike into as well as carrying some big loads when required. My driving is mostly around town with the odd 200km trip once a month...

2015 Mitsubishi Outlander LS (4x2) Review

We took delivery of our new my2016 Mitsubishi Outlander a week ago and on first impressions we are very happy. We traded in a 2012 Toyota Aurion Touring and were worried about less power. We have been pleasantly surprised by the Outlander. It may be the CVT which helps. But it certainly is better than we thought, and more than adequate for our needs...

2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Review

The purchase of an SUV wasn't easy, though the MY14.5 Outlander LS (4×2 – 2.0l) in August 2014 was "the one" after test driving the X-Trail, ix35 and Kuga. Setting out sights on a larger vehicle we were seeking a vehicle that was was reliable. Some might see this as a joke, calling a Mitsubishi a Bitsamissing - But, this manufacturer have and have played their part in producing a quality product...

2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Review

We headed over to the Mitsubishi Dealership in Arncliffe to pick up a brand new Mitsubishi Outlander XLS 2WD to play with for the week. Jesse, the car enthusiast in our family, was as happy as a pig in mud from the moment he was handed the keys. Our goal was to see how the Outlander fit into our day to day life so our first test was one that every car driver would perform quite a few times a month; parking at a shopping centre...

2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Aspire Review

Owner reviews are by their very nature, biased. I have tried hard in my review to remain objective, as a review dripping in praise is not generally very helpful for genuine buyers. We bought the MY14.5 model knowing the MY16 model was close. I personally don't like the open gaping 'mouth' of the new model, so I was happy to buy the soon-to-be-superseded model...
