2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander?

Mitsubishi’s seven-seat Outlander SUV is available with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder or a 3.0-liter V-6 engine. The four-cylinder pairs with a continuously variable automatic transmission while the V-6 works with a six-speed automatic. Front- and all-wheel-drive versions are available. Not to be confused with the smaller Outlander Sport, the Outlander competes with crossovers like the Hyundai Santa Fe, Toyota Highlander and Kia Sorento. There aren’t many competitors for the Outlander PHEV, which only comes with five seats and can travel up to 22 miles on electric power alone, the EPA says.

What’s New on the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander?

The Outlander gets a new front end, a lower skid plate and 18-inch alloy wheels. Other tweaks, including softer front seats and revisions to the suspension and steering, are meant to improve comfort, Mitsubishi says. A repair kit replaces the spare tire, and the rear seating area gets air vents. Similar upgrades to the PHEV are joined by a new USB port in the rear.

What Features in the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Are Most Important?

Value. With a base price of just over $27,000 with all-wheel drive, the Outlander is a value buy in the crowded three-row SUV space. It comes standard with a 7-inch touchscreen stereo, dual-zone automatic air conditioning and a CVT. The top, GT trim level is still a good deal with standard AWD, though it’ll cost you more to add the optional active safety features that Mitsubishi offers. The value proposition erodes with the five-seat PHEV, which costs about $8,000 more than a V-6 Outlander. But there aren’t many other PHEVs in this class.

Should I Buy the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander?

The Outlander makes up in value what it lacks in refinement. Our editors felt like the interior of the loaded GT trim was “a car from five years ago rather than something modern.”  Lower trims could be an appealing value proposition for shoppers who don’t need all the latest finishes and gadgetry. The best value play is the SE trim, which has Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and heated front seats.

Great car, amazing MPG

by LadyM from Seattle, WA on October 1, 2020

While the styling isn't super exciting, it is a comfy car with great visibility. After a month of commuting in it (a hilly 40mi of mostly freeway each way, usually done with 80%-100% charge to start),... Read full review

Lots of tech and a mobile battery storage device

by SolarDell from Estero, FL on May 24, 2020

I switched from my all electric Mercedes to this Plug in Hybrid as a bridge car before I go all electric again. Lots of good tech and safety options in the GT model. Takes some getting used to and ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
