What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For Sharp handling, roomy cabin, good looks

Against Not as refined as rivals, uncomfortable fold-out seats

Verdict Stylish, practical 4x4, but rearmost seats for children only

Go for… 2.0 DI-D

Avoid… 2.4 MIVEC

Mitsubishi Outlander 4x4
  • 1. The Outlander has well-weighted, precise steering and a crisp gearchange, while its tall body is well controlled
  • 2. The 2.4 petrol is undoubtedly fast, but pricey to run against the diesel versions
  • 3. Outlanders fall between insurance groups 21 and 27, meaning your premium won’t be too expensive when compared with other seven-seat 4x4s
  • 4. The 2.4 petrol model has an Government average economy of 30mpg – but expect much less. The 2.2 diesel is more efficient, returning 38mpg
  • 5. There have been a few recalls for the Outlander, most notably to do with leaking fuel pipes, stalling engines, failing brakes and faulty brake lights
