2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Diesel The Mitsubishi Outlander diesel version was recently put to an real-life test by a British TV personality. The new diesel model is Mitsubishi’s safest and most environmentally-friendly version.

Among the many enhancements for Outlander, 40 noise, vibration and harshness improvements have been introduced, and it boasts new styling, too. Ride and handling are even better and there’s increased efficiency, while the cabin interior has improved comfort and safety.

According to Julian Norton after his drive, the Mitsubishi Outlander was a great looking, stylish vehicle. During his test drive, Norton felt that the Outlander performed more like a car as it wasn’t as enormous as some of the equivalent vehicles on the market. In addition, the SUV handled nicely, and the interior had plenty of space, with a big enough boot for all his storage requirements. Finally. the SUV wasn’t too big which made it somewhat easy to fit into parking spaces.
