What alternatives should I consider to a used Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV 4x4?

Although the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is unique in the plug-in hybrid market, it’s impossible to ignore the fact that many rivals outperform it in most areas concerning ride comfort, handling, performance and interior quality.

If you must have a large SUV with some form of electrification, the Toyota RAV4 can be found with a hybrid system that should give you diesel-rivalling economy around town. It won’t do so well at higher speeds where the petrol engine will be used most often, though.

There’s also the Lexus NX or slightly more expensive RX to consider too. They can also be had with a petrol-electric hybrid system and come stuffed with equipment as standard. Plus, the interior will be made from very high-quality materials that will be a vast step up from the Outlander's, but then so are their prices.
