From The Experts

  • Pros
  • Cons
Mitsubishi Outlander

Despite having a modern design language, the Mitsubishi Outlander still has the quintessential old school silhouette, thus making it look butch and muscular. The high raised bonnet, sleek shoulder line, high ground clearance and side body cladding all give the Mitsubishi Outlander a good stance.

For a premium midsize SUV, the Mitsubishi Outlander is loaded with a number of comfort and convenience features which do give it a premium appeal in and out. With features like leather upholstery, sunroof, 8-way power-adjustable driver seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, and electric parking brake, the Outlander feels plush for an SUV of its price.

With a good length, width and wheelbase, the Mitsubishi Outlander feels incredibly spacious on the inside. There is ample amount of space with great knee room, shoulder room and legroom in all the three rows of seats, which makes the Mitsubishi Outlander one of the most spacious and comfortable SUVs in its category.

Toyota Rush

Compared to the small and old school looking previous generation Toyota Rush, the new version looks absolutely modern and eye-catching. The new Rush looks quite striking with angular front headlamps, wide front grille, rugged side profile with black cladding, roof rails and machined alloy wheels and the sporty rear profile with wide and horizontal tail lamps. All these design elements make the Rush feel like it is a vehicle from one category above.

The new generation Toyota Rush now features the additional flexibility of two extra seats in the third row, making it a seven-seater compact MUV. These extra two seats have a flexible folding arrangement, thus opening up a cavernous boot space at the rear. At the same time, there are multiple cup holders and small storage spaces in the entire cabin, making it a practical place to be in.

The previous generation Toyota Rush was known for its almost indestructible feel, and this new version of the Rush feels the same way as well. The ever trustable reliability factor of brand Toyota comes into play, giving the owners of the Rush an extra peace of mind when it comes to the after-sales period of owning it.

Mitsubishi Outlander

The Mitsubishi Outlander is equipped up to the brim with comfort and convenience features. However, the overall layout and design of the dashboard feel somewhat dated and too simple for a premium SUV of this size.

The Mitsubishi Outlander is powered by a powerful 2.4-litre petrol engine, which has great power delivery. However, the problem is with the relatively low fuel efficiency which makes the running costs quite high of the premium SUV.

The CVT gearbox is convenient to use in city traffic conditions. However, in longer driving cycles, the gearbox feels lethargic and has a rubber band effect which might irritate all those people who love driving.

Toyota Rush

While the Toyota Rush looks very striking and contemporary on the outside, the fact that it has been moderately styled on the inside makes for confused opinions. The too subtle styling on the inside with boring looking instrument console and center console dilutes the overall experience.

The new Rush is powered by a 1.5-litre petrol engine, which is not as exciting in its power delivery as one would expect from it. The linear power delivery is good for comfortable and effortless driving but is not as engaging to drive, which might be a small turn off for enthusiasts.
