What's the used Mitsubishi Outlander 4x4 like?
The Mitsubishi Outlander is surprisingly good to drive for a car of its size. It has well-weighted, precise steering and a crisp gearchange, while its tall body is well controlled. Its ride isn't as comfortable as say, a Freelander's, but it never feels too harsh.
However, engine noise, particularly from the diesels, is prominent in the cabin - wind- and tyre noise also intrude at motorway speeds.
Inside, the Outlander provides very good head- and legroom up front and that spaciousness extends to the rear seats, also. Move to the rearmost seats, though, and the space becomes disappointing. They are for kids or emergencies only.
With the rearmost seats folded away, boot space is impressive at 541 litres with the middle row of seats in place. When folded, they create a huge load area of 1691 litres.
The Outlander's cabin is well designed and easy to use if a bit plasticky in some areas.
