Mitsubishi Outlander VRX (2010)

by John Ewing,reviewed June 2010

The VRX comes with a lengthy list of standard kit and safety items, as it should given it’s the pinnacle Outlander model and one of the more expensive compact SUV offerings.
Performance is robust and smooth courtesy of the VRX’s standard 3.0-litre V6 and six-speed auto. The new V6 uses 5 percent less fuel than its predecessor, according to Mitsubishi.

Cabin space is quite good, while the two-piece tailgate design allows a nice low load lip to access the usefully cargo bay. Seats are firm and supportive but lumbar adjustment would be welcome. The omission of steering reach adjustment is a glaring annoyance common to many models from the Mitsubishi stables.
