For the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, which stands for plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, three trims can be considered. They include SEL, LE, and GT, and contain specific features like a gloss black floor console, which is exclusive to the LE trim.
Your 5-passenger vehicle includes available niceties like the power sunroof, as well as the standard heated front seats. Plus, the front seats come with eight ways of power adjustability to pinpoint the ideal mix of comfort and visibility. The driver’s seat includes power driver lumbar support, as well, to help you stay upright during any drive.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV trunk provides you with 30.4 cubic feet of cargo space to start. When you know you’re going to need more room if you’re helping a friend move, for example, the cargo area extends to 66.6 cubic feet. Fold the seats down to create this extra space.
As you sit in the driver’s seat, look to your right to notice the 8-inch Smartphone-link Display Audio (SDA) system, located in the center console. This depicts the apps you will use, your playlists and phone lists, and shows the routes you’ll be taking for your next destination. It also lets you adjust sound for your optional 8-speaker Mitsubishi Power Sound System (MPSS).
Plenty of safety features come standard in the Outlander PHEV, including Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM) with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning (BSW), and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA). Additional features you may want to include in your Mitsubishi arsenal are the multi-view camera system and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).
Traveling up to an EPA-estimated 320 miles, the 2.4L MIVEC 4-cylinder engine with twin electric motors in the Outlander PHEV exceeds your gas mileage expectations. Here’s the wow factor—it achieves an EPA-estimated 74 combined MPGe.
While you drive, the Outlander PHEV offers five different driving modes, including S-AWC ECO, Gravel, and Normal, plus Sport and Snow for elevated traction control. These modes work with the Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) for an enhanced level of grip on the Bay Area roads. You also get three energy-efficient modes to keep it going at the optimum level.
With the Outlander PHEV, it even tows up to 1,500 pounds when properly equipped, so you can plan that weekend away and bring your jet skis. Just get the available tow hitch to commence your weekend getaway to Lake Berryessa.
