2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander?

Mitsubishi’s seven-seat Outlander SUV is available with a 166-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder or a 224-hp, 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 four-wheel-drive versions are available. Not to be confused with the smaller Outlander Sport, the Outlander competes with SUVs like the Hyundai Santa Fe, Dodge Journey 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 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander?

There’s a new Special Edition trim level with unique styling cues and badges, and all trim levels get power-adjustable lumbar support for the driver’s seat.

What Features in the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Are Most Important?

Value. With a base price of just over $28,000 with four-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 four-wheel drive. The value proposition erodes with the five-seat PHEV, which starts at more than $37,000, but there aren’t many other PHEVs in this class.

Should I Buy the 2020 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 dated. 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 and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity.

Love my new baby

I am still getting used to all the bells and whistles, but I love this car!! The comfort and roominess is great! It’s beautiful inside and out. Even my grandkids want to ride in my car instead of their parents because they like it so much.
