Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV boosted with flagship 5h and 5hs trims

The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV plug-in hybrid range has been bolstered with plush new 5h and 5hs trim levels

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV hybrid range has been updated with new 5h and 5hs trims. Building on the already plush 4h and 4hs specs, the range-topping models add things like Nappa leather and an Alpine stereo to the standard kit list. 

That Nappa leather upholstery is available in three colours: Claret Red, Porcelain Cream or Gunmetal Grey. In each instance, the seats are designed to complement the matching floor mats. The trim extends to the door panels, which, like the seats also get diamond stitching.

In addition to the 4h and 4hs’s LED headlights, 360-degree parking camera, heated steering wheel and power tailgate, the 5h and 5hs gain heated rear seats, LED mood lighting and an Outlander bonnet badge.

Prices (after the £2,500 Government Plug-in Car Grant) start from £41,000 for the 5h. The 5hs costs from £43,100, and builds on the 5h’s extensive kit list with front and rear parking sensors and an Unintended Acceleration Mitigation System. 

The Outlander’s powertrain is unchanged, with all PHEV models using a new 133bhp 2.4-litre petrol engine mated to a powerful electric motor. It’ll do 0-62mph in 10.5 seconds, and can travel up to 28 miles on EV power alone. Official fuel economy is 139mpg, with CO2 emissions from 46g/km. Both models are available to order now.
