2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Exceed DiD AWD SUV Review

We take the Mitsubishi Outlander Exceed for a Road Test Review

2019 MiTsubishi Outlander Exceed 12 front

Outlander Exceed Overview

Mitsubishi Outlander has had a mixed history in its life. Earlier generations were practical, great on dirt roads with a clever 4wd system and had a little something about them. The latest generation was launched some 6-7 years ago to mixed reviews and Mitsubishi has spent the last few years improving the model with little updates along the way, the latest in early 2019.

We have the Outlander AWD Exceed DiD model for a test drive.

Outlander Exceed Exterior

Like a lot of us the Outlander has grown over the years. However that doesn’t mean it has grown fat, quite the opposite, it has kept a fairly lean shape and looks more like a wagon than the upright SUV shape so popular currently. The design is neither stunning nor boring.

2019 model year Outlander is distinguished by a new-look twin-blade front grill in a sweeping style with LED headlights and auto high beam, as well as LED front fog lights and headlamp washers. From the side it portrays a smooth exterior, with sleek heated exterior mirrors with auto fold function.

The rear again is sleek, with a spoiler on the auto opening tailgate. The door opens just enough for taller users. The Exceed runs two tone Alloy 18 x 7.0J rims with 225/55R18 98H tyres and a full size Alloy spare.

2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Exceed Review


Outlander is a bit confused. It is an AWD SUV, but with wagon like styling. It is a seven seat vehicle but with tiny, almost redundant rear seats. If owners buy this as a five seat wagon with the benefit of AWD and very occasional 7 seats for a family transport then they will be happy
