Interior and infotainment review- carwow

This video is in regards to last years model, but it still gives a good overview of what to expect from the Outlander PHEV in terms of technology. I believe that Mitsubishi has already made some improvements to loading times and sensitivity of the touch screen for 2019.

You aren't going to get a system like you see in hybrid models from premium brands, but I think it's adequate for this segment. Most issues with the software should be able to be addressed with software updates.

the biggest thing to look forward to will be range since Mitsubishi has committed to increasing it

as much as I dislike other aspects of the outlander, industry-leading range will keep it successful

The interior design and infotainment system is obviously a bit dated when compared to other new models, but this is fairly typical from Mitsubishi. At least they've built in Apple Car Play functionality from the get go.

I agree but they have been depending on an older demographic, now that won't be the case if they fail to adapt in adequate time.

They will definitely lose out on buyers from younger demographics with the current tech the Outlander is using. While empty switchgear is normal for vehicles in this price bracket, I personally think that hybrid/electric vehicles should have a much stronger focus on their technology.

So far the new Eclipse Cross seems to be changing that and pulling in more buyers so if we are to see more tech on a higher volume product, it might be the EC.

Its also probably a natural progression of the EC for Mitsubishi to electrify it in future generations. I'm actually surprised it didn't launch with one, since the system has already been developed.

IMO the Eclipse Cross would need major styling upgrades if it were to go fully electric, but as a PHEV sharing a similar powetrain to the Outlander can happen under the current design.
