A mid-life revamp for Mitsubishi Outlander
Korean SUVs are in its sights
Mid-life refreshes in the car world rarely change the model’s chances of success. A nip here, a tuck there, some new colours and technology and maybe slightly greener engines: that about sums most of them up. And it pretty much sums up what Mitsubishi has done to its Outlander. It’s still a large seven-seat SUV (technically speaking there’s also a five-seat version, which I’ll come to – and even a two-seat commercial option) available in diesel and PHEV (Plugin Hybrid Electric Vehicle) guises. Its closest competitors are the Hyundai Santa Fe and Kia Sorento, though it has plenty of rivals in the five-seat category below too.
