Inside the cabin, the Outlander PHEV Juro gets new connectivity features. The infotainment system now comes with Mitsubishi’s Smartphone Link Display system, introducing Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The new smartphone compatible features are bundled alongside Bluetooth connectivity.

Other features inside include heated front seats, dual-zone climate control and the ability to pre-heat the interior using the PHEV smartphone app. 

Elsewhere, the car gains a new automatic brake holding system, allowing the driver to release the pedal in traffic or stationary on a hill. 

The final change is the introduction of a new electric driving setting called EV Priority Mode. When in this setting, the 2.0-litre petrol engine is completely disabled provided there is enough charge in the batteries.

The updated Outlander PHEV Juro is on sale now, priced from £33,499 after the plug-in car grant.
