Mitsubishi Outlander SUV gets new 2L petrol engine

Written by Ellie

Mitsubishi’s astonishingly popular Outlander SUV has added a new petrol engine to its range.

Available from £27,680 on the road, the two-litre MIVEC petrol unit produces 148bhp and 195Nm of torque.

It comes linked to an advanced CVT automatic gearbox that offers the stepped shifting of a conventional auto under acceleration and strikes the ideal balance between performance, refinement and economy under normal driving conditions.

In terms of fuel economy, this new unit reports 32.5mpg on the combined WLTP cycle, emitting 196g/km of CO2 (NEDC: 37.7mpg, 171g/km).

A 0-62mph sprint takes 13.3 seconds, and it’ll pick up speed until it reaches 118mph.

Apart from those figures, everything else about the Outlander is pretty much the same as the rest of the range.

That means you get seven seats and 502 litres of boot space as standard, opening up to 1,608 litres with the back seats down. There’s also a braked towing capacity of 1,600kg.

This new petrol unit is available now in the Juro grade and the range-topping 4 (£29,680), which adds leather seats with electric driver’s seat adjustment, a 360° camera, heated steering wheel, power tailgate, blind-spot warning with rear cross traffic alert along with LED headlamps with LED high beam and LED front fog lamps.

Other features offered as standard across the range include heated front seats, automatic lights and wipers, rear view camera and keyless operation.

Ellie Baker, brand manager at Fuel Card Services, comments: “The Outlander has sold really well so far and the addition of a new petrol engine can only strengthen its appeal.”
