The Outlander Plug-In Hybrid Vehicle - PHEV - is now available across all three specifications - ES, LS and Exceed. 

All Outlanders have a minimum spec of 18-inch alloys, a six-speaker sound system, reversing camera, remote central locking, climate control, cruise control, leather gearshift and steering wheel.

Step up to the LS and you can add auto headlights and wipers, partial leather interior with micro-suede inserts, keyless entry and start, electric front seats, heated and folding power mirrors and electrochromatic rear vision mirror.

And finally, the Exceed offers active cruise control, keyless entry and start, electric heated front seats and a sunroof.

The presence of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto makes up for the lack of sat nav. There is also DAB radio, six speakers, USB and Bluetooth. The 7.0-inch touch screen, familiar from the ASX, is of the "it's alright, I guess" approach to touchscreen hardware. Looks good, though.

Standard across the range are seven airbags, ABS, stability and traction controls and a reversing camera. The ADAS package - optional on ES models, standard on the rest - includes reverse parking sensors, forward AEB, lane-departure warning, active cruise, reverse parking sensors and auto high beam. 

The ADAS package, which is an option on the ES and standard on LS and Exceed, includes forward AEB, lane-departure warning, active cruise and auto high beam.

Step up to the Exceed and you can also expect lane change warning, lane change assist, around view camera, reverse cross traffic alert, blind spot warning and auto high beam

The Outlander range scored five ANCAP stars in 2014.
