The 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV recently landed a spot on Kelley Blue Book’s list of the 10 Best Plug-in Hybrid Cars Under $40,000. Editors at Kelley Blue Book appreciated the SUV’s incredible value, powertrain warranty, and family-friendly amenities.


Finding the Right Vehicle for your Family: Mitsubishi crossovers to choose from


The PHEV system

The Outlander PHEV switches between three drive modes to enhance performance. For zero-emission driving, you can choose EV Mode so the SUV can run on all-electric power. If you need more power or plan to drive a long distance, you can switch to Series Hybrid Mode or Parallel Drive Mode to get power from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gas engine.

The Outlander PHEV has an electric driving range of 22 miles and a total driving range of 310 miles. As such, you can drive the SUV to work or to your weekend destinations without worrying about making frequent stops to recharge the battery or fill up the tank.

Safety features

Editors at Kelley Blue Book praised the SUV’s 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, which gives you peace of mind when embarking on each journey. The SUV also comes with numerous safety technologies, like Forward Collision Mitigation with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
