What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For The Outlander has plenty of equipment, plenty of room and commanding views out

Against The big engine is costly to run and the auto gearbox isn't great. The Grandis is disappointing to drive, too

Verdict This is one 4x4 that’s best on the road – preferably a motorway

Go for… 2.4 Equippe

Avoid… 2.4 Sport SE

Mitsubishi Outlander 4x4
  • 1. The small rear doors make getting in and out tricky
  • 2. Every Outlander comes with a 158bhp 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrol and a four-speed automatic gearbox
  • 3. The only option you might look out for is metallic paint. It cost under £300 on a new car, but should have little effect on a used car’s price
  • 4. The car's basically sound, and the only consistent complaint from owners is poor fuel consumption
  • 5. Loading larger bags into the boot is awkward because of the narrow opening
