The new plug-in hybrid version of the Outlander maintains its sleek design, just like the gas-powered model. The four available trims provide options to suit your style, with the base ES even available in the plug-in hybrid variant. With its modern design language and sophisticated front grille, this SUV stands out from the crowd. The LED lighting adds a touch of elegance, making it perfect for night drives.


Interior: Quilted Luxury & Family-Friendly Features!


Step inside this luxurious cabin! The interior offers top-notch materials and finishes, with the SEL trim boasting quilted genuine leather seats. You can even choose the SEL Premium Package to enjoy semi-aniline leather seats and massaging functionality. For tech-savvy families, there’s a three-zone automatic climate control, rear auto braking, and available wireless phone charging. Oh, and don’t miss the spacious rear seats and convenient rear seat-back pockets!


Air Ball & Slam Dunk: The Good and the Not-so-Good!

The slam dunk goes to Mitsubishi for offering a plug-in hybrid in this segment with a third row. That’s a unique offering you won’t find elsewhere! However, the air ball is the price premium. The Outlander PHEV is around $10,000 more expensive than the regular gas version, which might not sit well with budget-conscious buyers.

In a world of electrifying options, the 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in Hybrid emerges as a stand-out player! With impressive power, a luxurious interior, and efficient electric driving, this electrified compact SUV is ready to take you on thrilling adventures. Yes, the price premium may be a consideration, but if you’re looking for a stylish, family-friendly, and environmentally conscious ride, the Outlander PHEV is a strong contender worth your attention.
