The upper surfaces of the Outlander’s cabin feel pleasantly squidgy when you give them a prod, while harsher plastics are generally confined to lower areas where they are less noticeable. Regardless, fit and finish isn’t up to rivals’ standards.
Overall, the interior looks rather dated, and with no colour choice other than black, the cabin feels drab – despite the gloss black trim and chrome highlights on the fascia. Top-level GX4 trim does add some further decoration in the form of black ash trim on the doors, but while this is pleasant enough, it doesn’t disguise the fact that the Mitsubishi is no class-leader in terms of perceived quality.
