Overall, the Outlander PHEV’s SUV body style, along with the affordable pricing within the range of $35,795- $41,500 (including grants and tax breaks), and finally the fact that it gives the user the ability to do some good to the environment has made this car a huge success in the market.
What’s changed for 2019?
Upon the first look, the 2019 Outlander PHEV model does not seem much different from its 2018 counterpart, save its new LED headlights and alloy wheels that are different from the 2018 model. The pros and cons of the car match that of the 2018 model, as well. However, if you dig deeper, Mitsubishi did make some changes by adding a 2.4 liters Atkinson Cycle Engine, replacing the previous 2-liter engine, thus allowing the newer model to run the engine at a lower RPM, providing equal power output, while lowering noise and emissions. The 2019 model is also designed to be more economical, by using the MIVEC technology that reduces the engine capacity to around 1.7 liters for cruising and EV power to plug any gaps in performance.
The Mitsubishi 2019 Outlander PHEV is designed to deliver ultra-low emissions of approximately 0.16 pound/mile (40gms/km) allowing its users to enjoy extremely low company car tax.
The Mitsubishi 2019 Outlander PHEV promises 10% higher power (approximately 10 KW) and torque, 15% higher battery capacity of which is certainly a better proposition for prospective buyers as compared to the 2018 model. Added to this, the current model has also been armed with a Sport mode, for the first time ever, resulting in higher responsive driving and better acceleration. It provides its user with agile maneuverability and superior power distribution to rear axle allowing finer Active Yaw Control. The car provides fine driving experience while also maintaining fine exterior and interior features which are subtle, yet significant changes as compared to 2018 model.
