A petrol-engined model has joined the powertrain options for the Mitsubishi Outlander SUV range.

Priced from £27,680, the new seven-seat Outlander option becomes the first purely petrol version in the range as the brand reacts to a growing customer shift from diesel. The diesel version remains in the range, alongside the highly popular plug-in hybrid models.

The 2.0-litre petrol engine produces 150hp and 195Nm of torque, and is matched to a CVT automatic transmission. Steering wheel paddles are included for manual shifts.

All Mitsubishi Outlander variants are supplied with electronically-controlled four-wheel drive as standard. A cockpit-selected Drive Mode Selector offers three settings – 4WD Eco mode for maximum economy, 4WD Auto for normal driving conditions or 4WD Lock for rough terrain or low-grip conditions.

   

The standard-fit seven seats on petrol models include a ‘fold & stow’ operation allowing the rearmost two seats to be independently folded into the boot floor. The second-row seats are fitted with a tilting backrest and offer a sliding function to adjust rear passenger leg room as required.

With all five rear seats folded, up to 1,608 litres of boot space is available.

Mitsubishi has also updated its ‘Dynamic Shield’ design language on all 2019 versions of the Outlander. Changes include a new honeycomb mesh front grille, front lower extension and new headlamp design, revised rear bumper and new two-tone 18-inch alloy wheels.

Interior updates range across reduced engine noise, more supportive front seats, one-touch electric operation on all four windows, a heated windscreen and Mitsubishi’s new SDA (Smartphone Link Display Audio) system. This includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility with DAB and Bluetooth connectivity.

Mitsubishi also claims improved driving dynamics on the Outlander, accomplished by increased structural rigidity with additional structural adhesive welding applied between the body panels. The front strut and rear dampers have also been modified to increase the damping force at low speed to provide a smoother low-speed ride.
