Overall verdict

The Top Gear car review:Mitsubishi Outlander



What is it like on the road?

Mitsubishi Outlander front

The Outlander is part of that modern breed of urban SUVs with precious few pretensions towards the mud. As such it handles much more like a road car than a proper off-roader, with plenty of grip and little body roll.

The need to limit body roll means the suspension in the Outlander is fairly firm, but it’s not so much as to actually make it uncomfortable. General refinement on the move is also far better than the larger, older Shogun.

The 2.2-litre diesel is the big one for the UK - 147bhp and 280lb ft of torque means 0-62mph in 10.2 seconds. Won’t exactly the world on fire, but then if you’re Stigging something like this, you should seek professional advice.


How about something completely different?
