With the highly successful launch of Outlander PHEV last year, the new 16 Model Year model has been further refined and improved to provide an even smoother, quieter and more luxurious feel.
Exterior & Interior Styling
The exterior design now features Mitsubishi Motors’ new ‘Dynamic Shield’ design with changes to the front, side and rear of the vehicle.
The exterior changes follow through to the interior with premium quality leather, new centre console design, piano black panels, silver switch surrounds and LED foot-well Illumination.
The 16MY Outlander PHEV range will add an additional variant – the GX3h+. This variant has been created in response to market feedback that many customers are looking for an attractively priced, entry specification Outlander PHEV, with the addition of specification which maximises the EV use.
The GX3h+ takes the current GX3h specification and adds:
• Electric Pre-Heater (and Air-Con Function)
• Remote Smartphone App
• Heated Front Seats

Unintended Acceleration Mitigation System (UMS) – Standard on GX4hs
