We get a second go at the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV with the GT S-AWC top trim for a week. This triple-motor SUV has a lot going for it, if fuel economy and EV driving are top of mind.

In the winter we had the chance to drive the 2018 Outlander PHEV on a short snow course at the Salon de l'Auto International de Québec, giving us a brief taste of what the car had to offer and what it's off-road capabilities were. We now have the fully loaded GT S-AWC for testing during the winter.
As we always do with TestDrive, we wanted to see what kind of range and economy we could experience with this 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, and why it's quickly become Canada's best-selling PHEV. Our full tour and review of this plug-in hybrid electric vehicle goes over the exterior design and features such as the manual levelling LED headlights, CHAdeMO level 3 fast charging abilities, and it's unique power liftgate mechanism.
We go inside to see what this $53,000 CAD SUV has to offer in terms of features, design, and amenities, including the front heated seats, heated steering wheel, Fosgate Rockford audio system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and leather seating.
We finally take the Outlander PHEV on a road test to talk about how it performs on the road, our EV-Only driving abilities, and our overall fuel economy with this vehicle's 30 km real-world EV range.
