Mitsubishi has a superior track report in the SUV industry and Land Rover have created their model on off roaders so how does the new Mitsubishi Outlander honest versus the Land Rover Freelander 2?
The Outlander has 7 seats as opposed to the Freelander’s’ 5, but the third row of seats or ‘bench’ in the Outlander is only truly suited for youngsters as leg space is restricted and it has been criticised for being not comfortable. Each compact SUVs have 60/40 split rear seats but which has the most place? The Outlander has 3 rows of seats in a 2-3-2 configuration, and gives 220 litres of place with all 7 seats up, 541 litres with just 5 seats up and 1,691 litres with all but the front seats folded flat. The Freelander 2 has a greatest capability of 1,670 with all rear seats folded and 755 with seats up. The two have outstanding greatest capacities but the Freelander provides more useable room when all five seats are up. A 7 seat Freelander is envisioned someday this year which ought to include excess flexibility to the assortment.
The Freelander 2 is being touted as the cleanest Land Rover ever designed, with the new eD4 2.2 diesel motor with get started-halt technological know-how manufacturing 158 g/km of CO2 and 47.2 miles per gallon. This is even so for the 2WD model, the 4WD generate design creates 45.6mpg and 165g/km. The Outlander is just not far off those figures, the 2.2 litre diesel engine supplying off 169 g/km of CO2 and presenting 43.5 miles for every gallon. The Outlander’s new diesel engine is also much more impressive than the Freelanders- manufacturing 174bhp as opposed to the 150bhp produced by the Freelanders 2.2 diesel.
The Freelander has been criticised in the earlier for remaining unreliable and shoddily constructed but the new Freelander 2 has been reported to feel truly reliable, and handles as properly as you would anticipate off- road tackling even the trickiest predicaments with relieve but is similarly as capable on highway. The Outlander apparently also handles extremely very well, and is specifically agile for a 4×4 many thanks to the business suspension.
So how do they review rate smart? The Freelander entry level S design starts off from £21,995 even though the leading of the vary Freelander 2 HSE will set you back £32,995.00. The Mitsubishi Outlander costs from £22,099 for 4WD versions and from £23,349 for 2WD travel versions, with the GX4 beginning from £28,599.
The two glance very durable but the Land Rover has the edge, even with the new model up grade the Outlander is still alternatively ‘bland’. As but I am undecided if will be browsing my community Mitsubishi seller in Somerset or heading to my area Land Rover dealership, as both have their additionally points and their pitfalls.
