We enjoyed our time with the Mitsubishi Outlander it may be a bit thirsty and being all-wheel-drive running costs will be higher than a standard estate car.

What We'd Like To See
  • A manual transmission option
  • A diesel engine in the range
Build Quality

As you would expect of Mitsubishi build quality is very good and there were no intrusive rattles to contend with. The materials used are of a high standard and should prove durable in the long term.

Value For Money

The Outlander is reasonably priced at £ 16,999 and offers a high level of standard equipment. But it is not a true off-road vehicle and for £15,995 you could buy an entry-level Freelander with its undisputed four wheel drive capability. Residual values are unknown at the moment as it is such a new vehicle.

Conclusion

We enjoyed our time with the Mitsubishi Outlander it may be a bit thirsty and being all-wheel-drive running costs will be higher than a standard estate car. But if you are looking for an all-wheel-drive vehicle with the load carrying flexibility of an estate car but with more ground clearance and an excellent automatic transmission we would highly recommend the Outlander.
