Review Summary:

Facing competition from the Kia Sportage and Honda Crosstour, the Outlander is a mid-sized crossover that has been around since 2001 and is currently in its third generation.

Pros

The Mitsubishi Outlander is a handsome looking crossover.
It's well priced when lined up against the competition.

Cons

The CVT transmission is known to be a little iffy.

Looks

Some things change for the better and that is definitely the case with the Mitsubishi Outlander. Not only is the third generation model heaps better looking, but it also packs in a bigger engine than ever before.  The countenance of the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander is composed of a unique upper grille, neat contours that start at the centre, rise upwards and zoom down the length of the car, along with Range Rover-esque headlamps.

Feels

Some thought has definitely gone into the cabin of the Outlander and the results are highly satisfying. Although simple, the interior is undoubtedly neat. While the driver and front seat passenger are treated with a dashboard that is peppered with piano black trim and wood inlays, rear seat passengers benefit from generous amounts of head and legroom.

Engineering

Compared to some of the other models in the brand’s line-up, the Outlander feels like it belongs to the next generation. Paddle shifters, push button ignition, HID headlamps, hill start assist and a power tailgate are all features that are available, as long as you’re willing to dig deeper into your pockets.

What’s on offer?

The 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander is available with a 165 horsepower 2.4 litre engine, or a bigger 3.0 litre that tosses up 227 horsepower and 292 Nm of torque. In case you’re having a hard time deciding between the two, it’s important you know that while the 2.4 litre is mated to a CVT transmission, the 3.0 litre gets a proper 6 speed automatic transmission.

Summing it…

The 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander is a great offering from the brand. It’s good looking, well equipped, and with a price tag of AED 79,000 to AED 102,000, an absolute steal. You could get your hands on the Korean Kia Sportage for a lot less, however, if it’s the Honda Crosstour you fancy, you’ll have to keep a whopping AED 149,000 aside.

    I guess 2.4l model is around 1600 kg..for 2.4l seems enough..only thing i am confused at is this CVT.. i have no experience of this as of now but does it make a difference when u drive under 140
