2020 updates bring lower CO2 for Mitsubishi Outlander Petrol
The Mitsubishi Outlander Petrol has been updated for 2020, bringing increased efficiency as well as enhanced equipment.
Introduced alongside range revisions for the plug-in hybrid SUV and commercial variants, the changes see CO2 emissions drop to 169g/km, reducing its first-year VED rate by £325, but still putting it in the top 37% BiK bracket for 2020/21 if registered before 6 April 2020 or 36% from next April.
Priced from £28,085 OTR and on sale now, the Mitsubishi Outlander Petrol also brings improved equipment specification including a new, eight-inch infotainment system with smartphone connectivity, including Bluetooth, DAB digital radio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto compatibility and a rear-view camera as well as a built-in TomTom satellite navigation system on top versions.
A redesign to the climate control panel updates the dash, while the driver’s seat now features power lumbar support and rear seat comfort has been improved with additional, ergonomic padding. The latest Outlander Petrol is now available with Mitsubishi signature Red Diamond paint finish as well.
In line with the rest of the Mitsubishi range, the naming of the trim levels also changes for 2020. The entry-level Outlander Petrol will be the Design version. In addition to seven seats, four-wheel drive, an automatic transmission and the new eight-inch infotainment system as standard, this model is also equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, Keyless Operation System, electronic parking brake, electric, folding heated door mirrors, front fog lamps, automatic lights and wipers, cruise control, dual-zone climate control and privacy glass.
The top-spec version is now called the Mitsubishi Outlander Exceed. Priced from £30,385 OTR, this features leather upholstery with electric driver’s side adjustment, a 360-degree camera, built-in TomTom navigation, LED headlamps, high beams and fog lamps; heated steering wheel, power tailgate, Blind Spot Warning with Rear Cross Traffic Alert and twin rear USB ports.
