CONS

The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander is a solid option outside of the usual crossover SUV choices but is often forgotten for a reason.

Pros
Good base features
Large touchscreen standard
Available all-wheel drive across the range
Updated styling for 2019

Cons
Cheap interior feel
Overworked inline-4
Thirsty, underpowered V-6
Tight third row
Expensive active safety tech

By:

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
