Mitsubishi Outlander Review

The recent advances in the car industry has resulted in many cars for sale available at Bristol Street Motors that boast the best technology, luxurious fittings and the ‘ride of your life’, for the Mitsubishi Outlander, the car is something of a mixed bag.

For a larger car, the Outlander offers relatively low CO2 emissions of 138g/km and even lower (49g/km) for the hybrid version which is spectacular for a car of its size.

Size is one area where the Outlander shines, an extremely large boot and good leg-room makes for a comfortable journey for larger groups without feeling like you’re driving a minibus.

Despite priding itself on a ‘premium, luxurious interior’ the downsides to the Mitsubishi Outlander, which has often been dubbed the ‘practical rival to the Freelander’, are the car’s interior. From the outside, the car looks sleek and sophisticated with a more curvaceous form than its predecessor, perhaps more appealing than other 4x4s which focus on more ‘off road’ looks yet the inside is where the car loses its appeal. The car is, in actual fact, anything from luxurious and takes a more basic format.

Another way the car is advertised is its ‘smooth handling and quiet ride’; however, the car is far from the silent journey it claims. Whilst there’s no doubt that the car manages to block out quite a lot of road traffic noise, there still remains considerable wind noise on the motorway. The Outlander, however, does deliver on its ‘smooth handling’ and the car is an enjoyable one to drive.

The car’s ‘premium’ experience can be shown by the ‘Adaptive Cruise Control’ which boasts the ability of detecting vehicles up to 200 metres away.

In terms of reliability and safety the Outlander passed the Euro NCAP with flying colours, receiving a full 5 stars – and so it should do. The car is filled with all up to date technology for a safe drive including 7 airbags and a comprehensive ABS system, meaning the Mitsubishi has retained its excellent reputation as an extremely reliable and safe car.

Large cars are notorious for their high running costs; however, the hybrid version of the Mitsubishi Outlander (PHEV) is one of the cheapest SUVs to run. With extremely low CO2 levels, only comparable to much smaller, electric cars such as the Toyota Prius Plug in, the running costs are extremely low – so for such a large car, the hybrid version of the Outlander is extremely cost-effective.

If the hefty price tag of the Mitsubishi put you off, a cheaper but slightly smaller alternative to the Outlander would be the Seat Altea XL available at Seat Birmingham which, although a 5-door car, is surprisingly large in size.
