Interior layout

The interior layout, fit and finish

Finding a comfortable driving position isn’t easy, because the seat has limited height adjustment and can’t drop low enough for taller drivers; the seat is electrically adjusted, though. The steering wheel doesn’t adjust sufficiently for height or reach, either.

Most of the dashboard controls are simply laid out, but some of the buttons are tucked away out of sight and the touchscreen sat-nav system has complex menus and small, hard-to-hit icons. This system feels more like an aftermarket item compared with the better-integrated systems on rival cars, and is a bit fiddly and frustrating to use. All versions get a small LCD vehicle and journey information display in the instrument cluster.

You get a decent view from the driver’s seat, aided by large door mirrors. The high-set seating position helps visibility, too, but you do get rear parking sensors as standard. The upper surfaces of the Outlander’s interior 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.
