Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV – Car Review – Update

Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy with a press release from Mitsubishi Motors Australia regarding specification improvement and price reduction on The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

Now, more affordable than ever, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV starts at $45,990 (plus government charges and dealer delivery) which places it squarely in the more affordable medium SUV range.

Certainly worthy of consideration.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is now more affordable.

“Mitsubishi’s ground-breaking plug-in hybrid electric SUV, the Outlander PHEV, has been updated for the Australian market in line with recent changes to the Outlander range.

Mitsubishi has tweaked the world’s best-selling plug-in hybrid SUV with refreshed styling, which includes an updated Dynamic Shield grille and front bumper design along with new-style 18-inch alloy wheels and revised rear bumper.

For 2019, the freshened Outlander PHEV line-up will include the luxury Exceed variant, equipped with 360 degrees Multi Around Monitor, Lane Change Assist (LCA) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), and entry-level ES with an optional Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) safety pack, replacing the Outlander PHEV LS.

The $1500 optional ADAS safety pack introduces Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW).

The 2019 Outlander PHEV range also gains one-touch power window operation from the driver’s door for all windows, illuminated power window switches, improved seat cushion design, soft leather-look centre console lid and rear seat air-conditioning outlets.

A quick ratio steering configuration improves responsiveness and steering feel while larger diameter front struts and rear shock absorbers have increased ride comfort and body control.

Dynamic performance is also enhanced thanks to new structural bonding which has increased rigidity.

MMAL CEO John Signoriello said Outlander PHEV offers a smooth and efficient driving experience while enabling drivers to minimise their environmental impact.

“Outlander PHEV is a great demonstration of Mitsubishi’s plug-in hybrid capability and a fantastic EV solution for busy Australian urban lifestyles.”

“Thanks to its high-performance petrol-electric system, the Outlander PHEV delivers EV fuel economy alongside SUV practicality, providing a low-emission alternative for families and those requiring the flexibility and versatility of an SUV.”

The 2019 Outlander PHEV range is available at Mitsubishi dealers with Recommended Retail Pricing of $45,990 for the ES or $47,490 with optional ADAS safety pack and Exceed for $53,990.”

Hello and welcome to my new website!

I know that there’s a lot of websites that offer car reviews, car road tests, opinions on various cars and the like. What makes this site different is that I’m not going to bore you with technical information about the various cars that I review.

I’ve been in the car business for over 39 years. I’ve read the motoring magazines cover to cover. I’ve read the online reviews until my eyes were square. Everywhere that I go, I find motoring journalists talking about car speeds – 0 – 100 km per hour, standing ¼ times, the inclination of this and that at 150klm per hour on a 12.5% gradient curve, in rainy weather – and other stuff that bores me no end. is taking a different path on the journey to helping you purchase a new car. I’ll do my best to advise you on what I consider to be the most important information when it comes to that major decision to purchase a car. Interior room, features of the car, fuel economy, safety, service prices, resale and lots more. I’ll tell you what I like about a particular car and as importantly, what I don’t like, to find at least to be less than I think a car should have. .

And I’ll ask for your opinion. Take some pics of what you’re driving and tell me and our audience what you particularly like or dislike about your car. Because besides prospective new car buyers, there’s a lot of people who’ll read your comments as used car buyers.

So, jump on board, strap yourself in and let’s start out on the journey with The Car Guy.
