Mitsubishi Outlander Has Taken SUV In What Car?

The Mitsubishi Outlander is both petrol PHEV and diesel guises, and Mitsubishi scored highly in the annual survey after the leading automotive title polled over 14,200 owners on the reliability of their new cars.

The results were determined after the magazine asked owners if they had experienced any faults in the past 12 months. Faults were classified into 14 groups: battery, bodywork, brakes, engine, engine electrics, exhaust, exterior lights, fuel system, gearbox/clutch, interior trim, non-engine electrics, steering, suspension and other. For each fault, owners were asked how long it took for the repair and how much it cost to rectify.

Eclipsing all other large SUVs, including those from premium brands, the Mitsubishi Outlander topped its category with fewer than 10 percent of examples suffering a fault. The few Mitsubishi Outlanders that were affected were fixed under warranty and almost 75 percent repaired in under a day.

The result adds to the success of the Mitsubishi Outlander. Since its introduction in 2013, the diesel version has become renowned for being a great all-rounder with an impressive blend of space, comfort, dependability and driving dynamics, while the award-winning petrol PHEV is the UK’s best-selling plug-in hybrid.
