Introduction

What Car? says...

If we were to utter the name Mitsubishi Outlander, there’s a good chance you’ll immediately start thinking of the plug-in hybrid PHEV model. But, while that version has been a roaring success for Mitsubishi in the UK thanks to seriously low CO2 emissions that equate to surprisingly affordable BIK rates for company car drivers, it’s worth remembering there’s this more affordable petrol powered one, too.

Its 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine does without a turbocharger and produces a modest 148bhp, which is channelled to all four wheels via a CVT automatic gearbox. However, despite being a fair bit less powerful and slower than the Outlander PHEV, the petrol version can tow 1600kg; that’s 100kg more than the hybrid.
