It’s four-wheel-drive, but frequently switches to two-wheel drive mode to help save fuel in steady-state driving.

60sec road test
A car that’s easy to overlook, the Outlander is a family car that’s not without merit. It’s seriously roomy, big-booted and a comfortable cruiser on long journeys. Handling is tidy enough for a big car on-road, and it’s not completely flummoxed by off-road terrain, though it’s no Land Rover. The interior is drab and dreary (and home to one of the world’s most annoying collection of warning bleeps and bongs, some of which are difficult to turn off) but is at least durable and should stand up to years of hard use. Decent aerodynamics mean fuel consumption and CO2 are reasonable for a car of this size.
