The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Concept-S has been revealed in the first official pictures ahead of its appearance at the Paris motor show.

The Outlander PHEV Concept-S is previewing a new design package for the plug-in hybrid SUV. It adds chromed mouldings either side of the front grille, and a pair of wraparound headlights. There are more chrome details at the rear.

Inside, it gets a black and burgundy colour scheme, with black wood trim and leather upholstery on the seats


The BMW 2 Series now comes with a new four-cylinder diesel engine. The 220d Coupe is available with either a manual or an automatic gearbox, and has a maximum power output of 190bhp.

It is more economical when paired with the automatic gearbox, with an official fuel economy of 68.9mpg and CO2 emissions of 107g/km. The manual does 64.2mpg and emits 115g/km. It gets from 0-62mph in 7.0sec and 7.1sec in auto or manual guise respectively.

Pricing for the 220d starts at £26,865, and first cars will be in showrooms from November.
