Mitsubishi has upgraded the levels of equipment in its Outlander PHEV Juro – the one of the best value trim levels available for the UK’s best selling plug-in car.
Following on from a recent raft of revisions to the Outlander range, the Juro trim now has an electronic parking brake with auto hold, smartphone connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, DAB added to the audio system, a reversing camera, and EV Priority mode.
This last function allows the driver to hold the car in electric-only mode for as long as there is charge in the battery pack. Without the engine kicking in, it means the Outlander PHEV can be driven effectively as an EV for short distances.
The improved smartphone connectivity allows for safer driving and greater convenience. Drivers can use the phone’s voice commands and certain apps through the car, for traffic updates for example. Other features on the Juro specification include 18-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, climate control, and Mitsubishi PHEV app for pre-conditioning capability.
The new model is available to order now, with prices staring at £33,499 after the UK Government’s Plug-in Car Grant – worth £2,500 for the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV – has been taken off.
