Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Although based on an existing design, the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is an all-new plug-in hybrid vehicle.We think it's worth springing for the GT trim once you figure in a standard federal tax rebate for plug-in hybrid vehicles.

PROS
Delivers plug-in SUV utility without luxury SUV price
Offers a generous list of standard features
Sophisticated all-wheel drive offers stability on slippery surfaces
Generous warranty coverage

CONS
Limited Mitsubishi dealer network
Lower ground clearance hinders off-road ability
Regular fuel economy is underwhelming
Small gas tank limits overall range

Mitsubishi’s technology flagship, the Outlander plug-in hybrid, has arrived in the United States nearly five years after it was originally due. The vehicle itself might look rather dated (as does the rest of the Outlander lineup), but the technology within is most definitely not.

Pros
Drives electric (mostly),
speedy fast charging,
two AC outlets
comfortable ride,
quiet cabin.

Cons
Antiquated design,
queasy on the back roads,
cheap-feeling cabin materials,
off-canter engine revs.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is a roomy SUV that’s very economical for short journeys if you can plug it in to charge the battery – it’s just a shame it looks a bit drab and doesn’t drive that well

Pros
Cheap to run on short journeys
Quiet around town
Roomy back seats

Cons
Terrible infotainment system
Unsettled on bumpy roads
Drab interior

Unless the NX 300 F Sport's adjustable suspension and tighter seat bolstering are must-haves, we recommend sticking with the more comfortable NX 300. Add the Comfort package for its heated and ventilated front seats and blind-spot detection, and you'll have a well-equipped, quiet and refined luxury compact SUV.

PROS
Generous backseat room
Available power-folding rear seat
Cabin is very quiet at highway speeds

CONS
Remote Touch Interface can be distracting to use
Limited rear cargo volume
