SUV Capability

Ready for anything

The Outlander PHEV has all the benefits of an SUV such as a higher driving position, a roomier cabin and bigger boot space.

Twin Electric Motors

Better than an ordinary SUV

The Outlander PHEV has twin technologically advanced electric drive motors mounted on the front and rear axle. This allows the vehicle to travel at speeds of up to 135km/h (85 mph) in pure EV mode. It means the car offers a smoother drive, there's no 'shift shock' when changing gear, and it's virtually silent.

Greater control all round

S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control)

Greater control all round

The Outlander PHEV is the only car available with a twin motor 4WD System teamed with S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control) technology. Originally invented for our rally cars, S-AWC automatically distributes torque and traction to each wheel. The result is a 4WD system that offers better stability and performance on various driving conditions.

A new Drive Mode makes S-AWC even better because it lets you choose the best setting for your road conditions:

Electronic Parking Brake (EPB) / BRAKE AUTO HOLD (BAH)

No more wrestling the parking brake

The Electronic Parking Brake (EPB) switch replaces the traditional lever. Pull up to apply and push down to release. Brake Auto Hold (BAH) makes applying the parking brake in stop/start driving really easy.

Heated windscreen

A clear view in no time at all

Heated wires throughout the windscreen clear the glass of fog or frost. Your windscreen will be clear in a lot less time than if you were using the heater/defroster.
