New high-spec Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

Two new versions of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV offer lots of kit at an attractive price for business users

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV SUV is being pushed further upmarket with the introduction of two new, high-spec models.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV GX5h and GX5hs models feature full leather trim for the seats, dashboard, doors and console lining, a 420-watt Alpine stereo system, interior mood lighting, heated front and rear seats and two USB sockets in the rear.

Outside, the GX5h and GX5hs models are fitted with side steps to make climbing in and out of the SUV a little easier, a rear spoiler and LED foglamps with chrome surrounds.

The GS5hs is also fitted with a Forward Collision Mitigation system, which reduces the likelihood or severity of a shunt, and lane-departure warning. Adaptive cruise control allows the Outlander to follow the car in front at a set distance, varying the speed accordingly.

The new versions are available in the model's full range of exterior paint colours: Atlantic Grey, Glacier Blue, White Pearl, Frost White and Amethyst Black.

Despite the comprehensive list of standard equipment, the Outlander PHEV GX5h and GX5hs models are extremely affordable for company car drivers. Thanks to CO2 emissions of just 44g/km, the plug-in hybrid model could cost just £75 a month in benefit-in-kind tax and is exempt from road tax. Businesses can offset 100% of the purchase value against profits in the first year.

The new versions are perhaps less appealing for private buyers, with the GX5h costing £37,899 and the GX5hs costing £39,999 after the government’s £5,000 electric car grant has been applied.

Mitsubishi's UK sales chief Clive Messenger said: "The GX5h and GX5hs plug-in hybrid Outlanders offer such a fantastic package of benefits for both companies and company car drivers – high specification, luxury feel, low running costs and strong environmental credentials. We're expecting it to quickly populate company car choice lists UK-wide."
