Available in three trim levels with standard all-wheel drive, the Mitsu gets 24 miles of all-electric range.

A new 2.4-liter I4 engine is supplemented by a 60-kW electric motor in the front and a larger 70-kW electric motor in the rear. Combined they produce 221 horsepower, 31 more ponies than last year.

There is a bit of a rush off the line thanks to that electric power, but the steering fells loose, the handling is sloppy and the ride quality is harsh and uncomfortable.

The car can operate in full-EV mode, a series hybrid mode that charges the battery while driving or a parallel hybrid mode that uses both the battery and the gas engine.

Every Outlander PHEV comes standard with forward-collision mitigation with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring and automatic high beams.
