Extra standard features at no additional cost. For the U.K. only

Mitsubishi launched the third-generation Outlander in 2012 with a redesigned exterior, new technology, and updated engines. More importantly, it also gained a hybrid drivetrain under the PHEV name. This version was unveiled at the 2012 Paris Motor Show with a gasoline four-cylinder engine and two electric motors derived from the system used in the i-MiEV city car. The PHEV was a massive success, becoming the world’s best-selling hybrid vehicle in 2014 and 2015, with global sales passing the 100,000-unit mark in March 2016. In 2015, the Outlander received an extensive facelift that included a new grille, LED headlamps, and a quieter cabin.

With the PHEV model sliding into second place sales-wise in 2016, behind the redesigned Chevrolet Volt, Mitsubishi is already taking measure to ensure that the hybrid crossover remains competitive until the next-generation model arrives. In the U.K., the Japanese brand just launched the PHEV Juro, a limited-edition model that comes with extra features as standard. Although based on one of the least expensive trims, the Juro is well-equipped and features TomTom navigation and smartphone integration with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, among other features. What’s more, it doesn’t cost more than the model it is based on, enabling customers to make significant savings.

Unfortunately, the Juro isn’t available outside the United Kingdom, so don’t get you’re hopes up on seeing it in North America. But, until Mitsubishi offers something similar here, let’s have a closer look at the latest Outlander PHEV to arrive in British showrooms.

What Makes the Juro Limited Edition Special

The exterior of the Juro doesn’t really stand out compared to the GX3h+ trim it is based on outside the "Outlander" emblem on the bonnet and the 18-inch alloy wheels. However, those who aren’t familiar with the GX3h+ should know that it comes with standard chrome beltline molding, LED daytime running lights, and electric folding/heating mirrors with indicators.

Inside, however, the crossover received more standard features on top of the auto-dimming rear-view mirror, heated front seats, and electric pre-heater. Extra standard features include a touchscreen CD/DVD infotainment unit with TomTom satellite navigation, smartphone integration with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and DAB radio. The PHEV also gets cruise control, dual-zone climate control, privacy glass, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and Bluetooth connectivity.

Under the hood, the Juro limited edition is as standard as Outlander PHEVs get. Motivation is provided by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and a pair of electric motors that send 200 horsepower and 284 pound-feet of torque to the wheels through a CVT. The crossover needs about 11 seconds to hit 62 mph from a standing start, while top speed is reached at 106 mph.

Pricing for the Juro starts at £32,749, the same as the GX3h+ trim it is based on. This means that British customers will save a few thousand pounds with the extra options offered at no additional cost.
