2017 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Juro Edition Is for the UK Only

It packs more features as standard and “Outlander” lettering on the bonnet

Since the UK is Mitsubishi's largest market for the Outlander PHEV, the Japanese automaker has released a special edition model exclusively for the Albion.

The plug-in hybrid SUV is from now on available in a high-specification special edition called the Outlander PHEV Juro. Based on the GX3+ trim level, the Juro costs the same (£32,749 including Plug-In Car Grant), despite packing a series of additional features as standard.

These include a touchscreen CD/DVD infotainment unit with TomTom satellite navigation, smartphone integration, and DAB radio, while the exterior gets an Outlander bonnet emblem – I wonder what Land Rover thinks of that? Standard equipment also consists of 18-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel, and C-Tec seat fabric.

Nothing changes mechanically: the Outlander PHEV Juro retains its all-electric driving range of 32 miles (51.5 km) from the 119 hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and the two electric motors rated at 60 kW (80 hp) each.

The Outlander PHEV is the UK's best-selling plug-in hybrid vehicle, with sales of more than 25,000 units since its launch in 2014.
