Typical ‘Old School’ SUV Design

Don’t imagine that the Outlander PHEV is like the Outlander Sport which once existed in the Medium SUV class. Because the Outlander PHEV carries a more muted and luxurious design language, it is totally different from the more aggressive Outlander Sport.

The Outlander PHEV was first sold in Indonesia in 2019. That is why, the design of this car is quite lagging behind and is no longer in accordance with the trend of Indonesian SUV designs, which are generally aggressive or sporty in design.

From the front, the Outlander PHEV has brought Mitsubishi’s latest grille design language, namely Dynamic Shield. The radiator grille is also escorted by the headlights that are already full of LEDs, but not by the turn signal lights.

Turning to the side, is the part of the silhouette that we like the most. Apart from the fact that the dimensions are quite large and jumawa, the legs are also quite classy. Mitsubishi attaches silver rims with a multi-spoke design measuring 18 inches and wrapped in 225/55 tires.

In addition, from the side, there are also many chrome accents that Mitsubishi is trying to bring to this car. Fits with its design mission towards luxury SUVs.

Anyway, if you have never seen this car on the road and are curious about its dimensions, just look at the Honda CR-V or Mazda CX-5. The dimensions of the Outlander PHEV are not much different from the two cars.

Sliding back, the stern design of the Outlander PHEV reminds us of the previous generation Pajero Sport. The chubby to the curve of the design feels identical. However, the outstanding Outlander PHEV badge made us realize this was not a Pajero Sport.

Then, the design is very subjective. But one thing that we think is certain is that the Outlander PHEV has a design that is quite outdated or old school to compete in the current SUV market. Hopefully, after launching globally, Mitsubishi Indonesia will quickly bring the latest generation Outlander PHEV to the Indonesian market.
