Overview of the Mitsubishi Outlander

Learn about the Mitsubishi Outlander

Summary

With three rows of seating and excellent safety ratings, the Mitsubishi Outlander is a compact SUV available with standard or plug-in hybrid engines. While it may not have the space, power or interior finishes of some contemporaries, the Mitsubishi Outlander’s hybrid SUV option, robust all-wheel drive and economical price make it worth a second look. The standard model can seat up to seven passengers, making it a compact SUV with large seating capacity. The Outlander is designed for safety, with technology and design making this vehicle stable in most driving conditions.

Safety

The Mitsubishi Outlander consistently performs highly in crash-test ratings, and newer models have robust features available like:

  • Blind Spot Warning and Lane Change Assist, alerting you of vehicles approaching your side and rear (from 2017)
  • Multi-view camera systems and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert systems, which make you aware of obstacles around your vehicle (from 2018)
  • Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) construction, which provides energy-absorbing front and rear structures, enhancing passenger protection (from 2018)

Pre 2013, the Outlander may lack some of the advanced safety features like the above, but they do come with some impressive standard features, such as child-safety locks, electronic stability and traction control to remain steady and avoid skidding, a four-wheel braking system and airbags.

Interior

The Mitsubishi Outlander has a fairly basic interior, relying on plastic components for durability rather than luxury. Different trim levels and model years allow you to customize features for added comfort like:

  • Heated seats (from 2008)
  • A retractable moon roof 
  • Leather upholstery

Some drivers felt the seats could use more cushioning for greater comfort. Recent versions have dual zone climate control in the front row, allowing the driver and passenger to customize heating or cooling to their preference.

Technology

Later versions of the Outlander are technologically savvy, offering a host of options to enhance both safety and comfort. The audio system in most models from 2017 forward support Apple CarPlay,  Android Auto™, Maps and allows voice control for many features. SiriusXM® satellite radio and a power remote liftgate are other options. Many Outlanders offer USB ports for additional connectivity to smart device and have either FWD or all-wheel drive options. However, select newer vehicles come equipped with a proprietary all-wheel drive system called Super All-Wheel Control. 

Space

While the standard model offers third-row seating on some trim levels, its limited space and challenging access make it ideal for children. To compensate for the reduced cargo capacity, there is a floor compartment as well as open side-cubbies to increase storage. In general, the front and second rows of seating have plenty of leg and headroom to make those long drives more comfortable. The Outlander PHEV, one of the few electric cars that's a hybrid SUV, is only available in the five-seater option.

Comfort

The Mitsubishi introduced a Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT) system in the 2008 ES model, which some drivers find to be noisy. With thicker glass and a streamlined design, this is a quiet vehicle. Many drivers recommend upgrading trim options to get the larger six-cylinder engine, which is more responsive and more than doubles towing capabilities. Keep in mind, though, that this kind of power will reduce your Outlander’s fuel efficiency. 

Frequently asked questions about the Mitsubishi Outlander

The Mitsubishi Outlander offers three rows of seating for up to seven passengers. Seats in the second and third rows can be laid flat to maximize space.

Specific trim packages of the Outlander offer full-time all-wheel drive (AWD). The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV electric car also offers four-wheel drive (4x4).

The Mitsubishi Outlander has rear heating and cooling vents situated under the front seats, which make sitting in the second and third rows as comfortable as the front cabin.

The Mitsubishi Outlander is a compact crossover SUV. It is not as large as a full-sized SUV, though it still offers many of the same amenities.

Most Mitsubishi Outlanders are manufactured in Japan, including the plug-in hybrid version of the Mitsubishi Outlander, the PHEV. The manufacturing plants are based in Aichi and Okayama, Japan.
