The uneconomical 2.4 MIVEC petrol engine falls into Band K, leaving it subject to a £550 showroom fee and a £245 road tax.

Mitsubishi Outlander – Conclusion
Although the Mitsubishi Outlander is a economical, high value 7 seater car, it does have one or two small faults. The rear seats are just small enough to be uncomfortable for adults, making them only really suitable for smaller adults and children, while there is also not enough room in the cabin for 7 people and a large amount of luggage. Some drivers have also reported finding the ride too firm.
