The Mitsubishi Outlander's interior is a classic example of putting function before design flair

Soft suspension and chunky tyres give the Mitsubishi Outlander a rugged ride; it's able to take bumps and potholes in its stride without leaving passengers too ruffled.

Mitsubishi Outlander dashboard

While there’s nothing terribly wrong with the Mitsubishi Outlander’s interior, it has a rather boring-looking dashboard and some of the plastics feel cheap, so it mightn’t suit if you like a bit of design flair. However, if functionality is more important to you, the Outlander makes plenty of sense.

The instruments are easy to read and most of the controls are sensibly placed. Only the Outlander Exceed model features satellite navigation as standard, but the graphics look very dated compared to the latest and best systems. If you choose the Outlander Design, you’ll find the stereo looks equally antiquated.

Equipment

The Outlander Design is now the entry-level model but you get plenty of equipment including alloy wheels, seven seats, power-folding heated door mirrors, a reversing camera, rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, heated front seats and a stereo with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth and DAB radio.

Top-spec Exceed trim costs around £2,300 more but includes sat nav, keyless entry and start, a 360-degree parking camera, a power-operated tailgate, and heated leather seats and steering wheel. There are also LED headlights, a heated windscreen and an electrically operated boot lid, so it's very well equipped.

Options

The Mitsubishi Outlander has a very short options list, limited to leather seats, metallic or pearlescent paint, leather door trims and pockets in the back of the front seats.
