Mitsubishi Outlander Exceed diesel 2017 review: Torquing Heads

With a 2.2-litre 110kW/360Nm turbodiesel, this top of the line Outlander impresses with its lengthy spec.

The Mitsubishi Outlander is a firm favourite with Australian buyers, vying with the Holden Captiva for cheapest seven-seat SUV on the market.

The Mitsubishi Outlander is a firm favourite with Australian buyers, vying with the Holden Captiva for cheapest seven-seat SUV on the market. Unlike the Captiva, the Outlander isn't the automotive equivalent of Methuselah and has just recently had a very successful facelift.

Our fearless duo each spent a week in Mitsubishi's recently refreshed Outlander Exceed diesel. With a 2.2-litre 110kW/360Nm turbodiesel, this top of the line non-PHEV Outlander impresses with its lengthy spec sheet and value for money proposition - as well as ensuring both Peter and Nikki were happy with Apple CarPlay included.

The Exceed has seven seats, which Peter put to the test during his week aboard, with six six-footers crammed in along with luggage and a long trip.

The Outlander Exceed also has a tonne of safety gear, including AEB, lane departure warning, active cruise and reverse cross traffic alert, which came in handy with a full car.

The last time Peter drove an Outlander, he was less than impressed so he was keen to find out just how far the Mitsubishi stalwart has come since the blank-faced, blank-butted predecessor. Spoiler: he liked the looks much better. Nikki was keen to see a kilted chap from a TV show. Which of them was the most disappointed?
