What used Mitsubishi Outlander 4x4 will I get for my budget?
You’ll need between £8000 and £10,000 to buy an early Mitsubishi Outlander. Spend between £11,000 and £13,000 on a 2015 or 2016 model, £13,000 and £15,000 on a 2016 or 2017 car and £15,000 to £20,000 on models from 2018 and 2019. Post-facelift cars from 2019 up to the Outlander's withdrawal in 2021 will set you back at least £20,000 to £22,000.
Where the PHEV makes less sense is on motorway journeys, where carrying around those heavy batteries can drag the economy down as low as 30mpg. However, by combining these two extremes, many owners report average economy of about 60mpg from their PHEVs, which is still impressive for a car of the Outlander’s size.
Servicing costs are higher than average (intervals are every 12 months), with diesels generally costing more to maintain than the later petrols or PHEVs. Either way, if the car is under three years old it will pay to check if it is already covered under a servicing plan from its previous owner.
