Best cheap 4x4s and SUVs - Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV


Plug-in hybrids were nothing new when the Outlander PHEV arrived in 2014, but it was the first plug-in SUV on the scene. It gave the rather uninspiring Outlander a new lease of life, as the car’s super-low emissions of 44g/km meant free road tax and tiny company car tax bills.

The car is a sound buy if you can use its electric drive. On petrol power you’ll be looking at 40mpg, but if you have a charging point, there’s an estimated electric range of 32 miles and you could get close to the 148mpg claims.
