Updated Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV revealed in Paris

Updates for Mitsubishi Outlander range add new in-car tech and safety kit

Mitsubishi has announced a range of updates for its flagship SUV, the Outlander - with new kit coming to both the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version and the diesel.

The new Outlander PHEV features a new 'EV priority' switch, which prevents the system from switching to hybrid mode. That means you can drive the full 33-mile electric range without the engine coming on and using fuel.

There's an electric parking brake and an auto-hold mode, while the infotainment system has been updated to include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There's also a 1,500W AC spower supply for connecting up electric equipment.

Safety kit includes blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert and a pedestrian detection system for the auto-braking sensors. Automatic high beams and LEF foglamps complete the list.

The Outlander diesel gets those same safety upgrades, as well as tech to stop a crash after accidental acceleration and an around-view camera. It also features a new shark-fin antenna, a heated steering wheel and a heated windscreen. 

Diesel models also get a new centre console design to bring it up to date with the PHEV model. It will be available in the UK later in 2017, according to Mitsubishi.

Could the updated Mitsubishi Outlander be your SUV of choice? Let us know in the comments below...
