Which? had an article that featured this car:

False economy - 98% of cars can't match their mpg claims
Drivers spend an average £133 more on fuel a year

24 April 2015

If you bought a car advertised as offering fuel economy of 148 miles-per-gallon, but it then failed to deliver more than 67mpg – less than half – you’d be pretty disappointed. You’d also be spending a whopping £459 more a year on fuel than you expected.

Astonishingly, that’s exactly the situation you could be in if you bought a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV – a plug-in hybrid that is marketed on the strength of its efficiency.


In the road test they summarized:

What’s its Achilles’ heel?

The Outlander isn't very economical once you've gone beyond its electric-only range. If you cover a lot of motorway miles, a conventional diesel 4x4 may be a better bet.

Nor is it particularly refined (blame the single-speed CVT gearbox), enjoyable to drive or – more subjectively – desirable. The frumpy styling and plasticky interior are a world away from stylish alternatives like the Range Rover Evoque.
