Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is a company car tax marvel. Although it’s based on the regular diesel-engined version of the Outlander, this PHEV model is a petrol-electric hybrid, which means ultra-low CO2 emissions and low benefit-in-kind car tax.
Essentially it can be driven by either its naturally aspirated 2.0-litre petrol engine, or its electric motors powered by its batteries alone, or a combination of the two. Those batteries can be charged on the move, or the PHEV can be plugged into the mains.
As a result, against conventionally powered rivals such as the Skoda Kodiaq and Nissan X-Trail, the Outlander will potentially save company car taxpayers thousands of pounds in tax payments over their ownership. Because it can run on pure electric too, many people will be able to charge at home and travel to work and back using no fuel at all.

The 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has been revised to provide better driveability, better handling, increased fuel efficiency and, with the high-grade Exceed, all the safety kit you need.

Pros
Country ride and bump absorption is now excellent
Cabin retains a premium, yet value-for-money feel
Seamless transition between power modes under all driving conditions

Cons
Urban ride can be a little sharp at times
Price has crept up, putting it even further away from regular Outlander
No seven-seat option is an opportunity missed

The Mitusbishi Outlander PHEV is more than just a flag waver for plug-in hybrid vehicles. It is a marker in the sand for the Japanese car maker.
Though the on-road experience may not be thrilling, the Outlander PHEV is very much the equal of other medium SUVs: comfortable to ride in, quieter than most traditional internal combustion competitors, and missing none of the space and flexibility that make SUVs so popular.
Day-to-day running powered by electricity and the freedom to venture well beyond city limits on petrol power make the Outlander PHEV a flexible family choice, and the lack of oddball aero styling means there's no chance of being branded a fanatical eco-warrior - all of which makes the Outlander PHEV an enticing, if slightly pricey, prospect.

The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox is a solid bet if you want a reasonably sized crossover SUV with plenty of backseat space. You can also upgrade to a powerful V6 engine, which is an unusual treat in this class. Let's see if this veteran player still has what it takes.

Pros
Backseat has plenty of space and slides/reclines for added comfort
Optional V6 engine provides quick acceleration
Interior stays quiet at speed
Rides smoothly on rough roads.

Cons
Four-cylinder version feels sluggish and real-world mpg falls short of EPA ratings
Less cargo space than some rivals
Quality of interior materials leaves something to be desired
Bluetooth audio isn't offered on L or LS.

The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox is a solid compact crossover SUV. What it lacks in advanced powertrains, it makes up for in available tech.
The Chevrolet Equinox has struck the right chord for many compact crossover buyers. It offers a range of powertrains, including front- or all-wheel drive; it can be fuel efficient; and it's relatively large.

Pros
Inline-4 is frugal
Space is configurable for cargo or people
Plenty of power in V-6
Exterior style has been improved
Relatively good tech

Cons
No premium audio to speak of
Rear visibility is a challenge
Safety marks not quite top tier

The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox ranks 5 out of 18 Compact SUVs. The Chevrolet Equinox was redesigned for the 2018 model year and sees some admirable improvements over the outgoing generation. It has a quality interior, plenty of standard features, and a good amount of cargo and passenger space. It rides and drives confidently but can be slow to get up to speed.

Pros
Plenty of standard features
Quality interior
Stable handling

Cons
Sluggish transmission
