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
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.
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.10 November 2004
