Plug-in hybrid SUVs have seen a significant rise in popularity over the past few years, particularly among compact models. This category is one of the most competitive on the market, which is why standing out is crucial for success. Fortunately, the Mitsubishi Outlander is a major player in this niche.   Mitsubishi was one of the first manufacturers to offer a serious plug-in hybrid SUV, making the Outlander PHEV an interesting model. ...
This week I had the opportunity to test drive the brand new Mitsubishi Outlander. The model is based on the same platform as the Nissan Rogue, which means it's far from a traditional Mitsubishi product. There are many similarities between the two models, especially in terms of cabin design. The Outlander and the Rogue also share the same base engine. However, only the Outlander is available in PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) version, and that's ...
The market has evolved significantly over the last decade, and the price of vehicles has increased considerably to the point where some people wonder if they can still afford a new vehicle. Fortunately, there are still affordable options on the market, such as the Mitsubishi RVR. Moreover, don't think you'll have to compromise, as the small SUV from the Japanese manufacturer offers complete standard equipment and lacks nothing.   Apart from ...
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is a vehicle that has always fascinated me, both for the audacity of its name and its avant-garde design. Upon its arrival in the market, the Japanese manufacturer's SUV was heavily criticized by the press. It must be said that its unique appearance and concept set it somewhat apart from the competition. Ironically, there are now several vehicles on the market today that resemble the Eclipse Cross, which is why I find ...
I don\'t want to preach to you or tell you what choice you should make, but the fact is that a $60,000 hybrid SUV is not going to save the environment or improve your financial situation. The real solution exists in the form of a small, affordable, and fuel-efficient car, the Mitsubishi Mirage. With a starting price of under $17,000 and lower fuel consumption than most hybrid vehicles, the Japanese manufacturer\'s compact city car is one of the most ...
Mitsubishi recently announced that it is preparing to launch a new SUV for the Asian market in early autumn.   For now, we know that this new vehicle will be unveiled in Indonesia on August 10th. Although nothing official has been announced on this subject, several rumors suggest that it could make its way to North America.   Another SUV   Let\'s just say we know very little about the model, except that it will be slightly larger ...
The digital era has completely revolutionized the way we shop for a vehicle. While some struggle to adapt to this new reality, others, like Mitsubishi, find rather ingenious solutions. The Japanese manufacturer now offers us a brand new online cinematic configurator that allows you to build your vehicle in an environment that is as close to reality as possible. To do this, Mitsubishi has partnered with a specialized company in the field called Zerolight.   Zerolight ...
As an automotive journalist, I am often asked which versions to choose for a vehicle, and where people who ask me this question seem the most indecisive is with vehicles that are available in both regular gasoline versions and plug-in hybrid versions, also called PHEV.   Those who have never asked themselves the question cannot really understand how difficult it can be to choose between a gasoline-powered vehicle and a plug-in hybrid vehicle, ...
The Mitsubishi RVR has been on the market for quite some time now, and you may know everything about it. However, even as a car journalist, the Japanese sub-compact SUV always surprises me after 12 years. By the way, I used to own one of these back in the 2010s. My first brand-new vehicle was a 2015 Mitsubishi RVR. Please don’t get too excited since it was the base version with the manual gearbox. However, it is one of the few vehicles that ...
  A gas car is powered by gas, and an electric car is powered by electricity. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle which means it can be powered by both electricity and gas. This may be true, but the complete answer to this question needs further explanation, especially if you are as thirsty for knowledge as I am.    Before going any deeper into the subject, I suggest we look at what is the main component ...
  The Mitsubishi Mirage is one of the least expensive cars currently available. Of course, you must compromise on comfort, technologies, performance, and many other aspects; however, you don’t have to compromise on its styling.    Despite its size and cost of three times less than the average new vehicle in 2023, the Mitsubishi Mirage is hard to miss. The micro-car has a vast road presence, especially when you pair it with ...
  To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Mitsubishi\'s presence in the U.S., Mitsubishi just launched a special edition of the 2023 Outlander. The 40th Anniversary Special Edition will also be available for the Outlander PHEV featuring a unique two-tone paint job with a bronze-colored roof and a Black Diamond finish for the rest of the body.    This new special edition will be easy to set apart from the other Outlander versions thanks ...
2022 has been a tough year for some automotive manufacturers, or even for the global car market, with the lowest sales in 13 years. Some were luckier, or they had a better strategy, perhaps which is the case for Mitsubishi.    The Japanese manufacturer unveiled a brand new Outlander in 2021 for the 2022 model. Then, the Outlander PHEV came out last year as a 2023 model. The new generation Outlander impressed everybody, and it is reflected ...
With the end of the year approaching, we can say 2022 was glorious compared to the two previous years for the automotive industry. Thankfully, even if the situation isn\'t back to normal, most car manufacturers could move forward without the Covid-19 crisis shutting everything down. 2022 has been a good year for Mitsubishi, which finally unveiled the awaited Outlander PHEV.    Although 2022 was an excellent year for Mitsubishi, 2023 will ...
The Mitsubishi RVR has been there for quite some time now. Yet, 2023 doesn’t feel just like another year. Improvements have been made, small ones, but it’s not the point here. The market considerably changed over the past decade, and although the RVR seemed on the fall of its life, it suddenly started to climb back.    Two things explain the situation here, the first being that the RVR is one of the last affordable SUVs out ...
Earlier this month, the upcoming all-new 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV was named 2023 Family Green Car of the Year by the Green Car Journal. With up to seven seats, a ton of high-tech features, and an innovative powertrain allowing it to drive up to 61 kilometers running on electricity only and 675 kilometers by combining EV and gas motors, it is clear the Japanese SUV has everything to please an entire family.    The competition was ...
  If you have traveled before, you may have noticed cars can be a lot different than what we are used to in North America in other parts of the world. I am not talking just about brands we don’t have here in Canada. The vehicles you find in Mitsubishi’s line-up in Japan are far away7 from cars offered in the Japanese manufacturer\'s line-up here.    Of course, an overseas model could be sold here, and some people would ...
The answer to this question might seem more obvious than it is. The tricky part is, to be fair, here. Of course, if you consider the purchasing price of the vehicle and all the expenses for the first year, taking the bus will be cheaper. Hover, if you keep the vehicle long enough, the scenario is totally different.    What we will need to do first is to determine a time which I think ten years makes sense here. The 2023 Mitsubishi Mirage ...
Mitsubishi has been the first manufacturer to present a plug-in hybrid 4x4 SUV with the Outlander PHEV in 2015 in Europe. As you may know, the Japanese manufacturer recently unveiled a whole new Outlander for the model/year 2022. Yet, the PHEV version wasn’t available with the new generation.   Now that the 2023 model is out, Mitsubishi finally unveiled the whole new Outlander PHEV which should be available in November 2022.   Performances   The ...
Among trim levels, individual options, and colors, I find the hardest to choose when purchasing a new vehicle is accessories. They don\'t feel necessary, even though I always regret not getting some. I think accessories are the most underestimated part of the shopping process for a new vehicle. Therefore, I decided to help you out on this one.    The 2022 Mitsubishi RVR is the perfect subcompact SUV for small families, young couples, or ...
Depending on where you live around the globe, you may know the RVR under a different name, such as Outlander Sport or ASX. Nevertheless, we will keep things simple here and refer to it as the RVR since we are based in Canada.    The Mitsubishi RVR hasn’t changed much in the 12 years it has been on our market. Still, the sub-compact SUV has received several updates to keep up with the competition over the years. However, 2023 will ...
I am the first to admit Mitsubishi evolved to something much better than it has ever been in the last few years. However, there is a part of mine that is missing the good old times when Mitsubishi was a brand associated with performances. It seems like I am not the only one who thinks like that because the Japanese manufacturer announced that its performance division, Ralliart, is set to come back to the US in 2023, which should include Canada.    Apart ...
The manufacturer, which once was a reputation for the sportiness of its cars and its success in Rally racing, is now offering some of the best SUVs on the market, including the Eclipse Cross.    Mitsubishi was severely criticized for using the name of a legendary car for its new SUV. Little did we know back then, this was starting to become a new tendency. The Ford Mustang Mach-E is just another good example. And it is just one of the ...
Mitsubishi offered us a brand-new Outlander for 2022. With more elegant, better technologies, a plethora of comfort elements, and a luxurious interior, the least we can say is that the Japanese manufacturer didn’t miss the mark here. The new Outlander is an eye-catching vehicle, and this is definitely one of the best compact SUVs currently available on the market.    There is only one engine option with the new platform for now, ...
The third generation of the Mitsubishi RVR was introduced on the market in 2010 and was first introduced in Canada as well as joining the Mitsubishi Familly as a compact and very practical SUV. Like many others, I have been charmed by the RVR since day one. Also, just in case you have no idea what vehicle we are talking about here, it’s because you are outside of Canada, where the RVR is also called the ASX of the Outlander Sport.    The ...
The average price for a brand-new vehicle is staggering. A couple of years ago, it was around $35 000, which was still expensive. However, since the most little car has been removed from the market, the average price for a brand-new vehicle is around $45 000 today. That is a lot of money, and it’s not even the only thing to consider.    If you need to finance or lease your vehicle like most of us do, you probably noticed interest ...
  First and foremost, if you don\'t know what a PHEV is, let\'s clarify this. PHEV stands for Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle. Let me tell you why I think the Mitsubishi Outlander is among the best options in this category, even if the competition got more robust in the past few years.    The Mitsubishi Outlander was one of the first SUVs to introduce PHEV technologies into the segment, and it has been the best-selling PHEV SUV in ...
