Responsible for building Japan's first series-production automobile in 1917, enthusiasts know Mitsubishi for the Lancer Evolution, a sport sedan built as part of the company's connection with off-road rally racing. Currently, in the US, Mitsubishi manufactures one sedan, one hatchback, two crossovers and one electric vehicle.
Mitsubishi's second-generation plug-in hybrid makes a strong showing in a shrinking, but still very valuable, niche.
Plug-in hybrids aren't for everyone, but with more power and more range, the 2023 Outlander PHEV is one of the best values in its class.
In some ways, the Outlander PHEV remains miles ahead of its limited competition.
The Outlander PHEV occupies a unique spot, and changes to its new generation only enhance the experience further.
Standard AWD gives it a small edge over the competition, most of which charge extra for the feature.
The days of Ralliart being a performance brand might be gone, but we still appreciate the stylistic improvements it makes to the Outlander and Eclipse Cross.
Both will debut at the 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon in January.
