Which used Mitsubishi Outlander 4x4 should I buy?
The Outlander was originally available with either a 138bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine or 168bhp 2.4-litre petrol engine. In 2009, the Outlander underwent a face-lift that introduced the 2.2-litre diesel found in the Citroen C-Crosser, Peugeot 4007 and Land Rover Freelander of the same generation.
For its better value and fuel economy, our choice would be the older 4x4 2.0-litre diesel. It manages 41.5mpg and emits 180g/km CO2. The later 2.2 is more powerful, offering 171bhp, but fuel economy suffers as a result and used prices remain high. Mitsubishi later offered a two-wheel-drive version of the 2.2 diesel, but used prices remain high. The 2.4 petrol is undoubtedly fast, but pricey to run against the diesel versions.
