Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 30 - 46 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Mitsubishi Outlander running costs aren’t great but it is priced competitively against other off roaders and promises average fuel consumption in excess of 40mpg with the diesel version. Service intervals are similar to cars like the Toyota RAV4 and Nissan X-trail and the Outlander should depreciate in line with these other 4x4s.

Mitsubishi Outlander emissions are acceptable. With an average of 155g/km CO2 across the model line-up, its emissions are quite low for a small 4×4. The 2.0-litre DI-D is the best model for economy – it emits 174g/km of CO2 and returns 43mpg.

Mitsubishis tend to be very durable and the Volkswagen diesel engine should also give no cause for concern as far as Mitsubishi Outlander reliability is concerned. There have been two recalls but these have been for 2.2-litre diesel models – an engine that is borrowed from Peugeot/Citroen.
