The past week’s @Popbangcolour test car was the @MitsubishiUK Outlander 2.2 GX5 with the diesel engine and automatic transmission, this model also had 4WD capabilities and seven seats.
As a child of the 80’s and 90’s I grew up with the sight of iconic red & white Mitsubishi’s racing through rally stages, and this capable off-roader continues an element of that tradition. The Outlander can be 2WD or 4WD at a touch of a button - and this be very useful function when venturing through the countryside.
The Mitsubishi achieved an average of 38mpg - this, generally when in eco mode. Features of the car also included adaptive cruise control, integrated satnav, lane departure warning & reversing camera and sensors. Overall the New Outlander is a practical sized vehicle. On a day trip to Shropshire the vehicle swallowed up bags, a buggy, four adults and a 6 week old child, with ease.
