Mitsubishi has added a petrol engine option to its Outlander SUV range.
The new 2.0-litre, 150hp engine sits alongside the existing plug-in hybrid and diesel models, and is paired with a CVT automatic gearbox and has, like the rest of the Outlander range, four-wheel drive.
It achieves an official combined fuel economy of 37.7mpg, and CO2 emissions of 171g/km.
Prices for Outlanders with the new engine start at £27,680 with Juro trim, rising to £29,680 with 4 trim.
All petrol Outlanders come with seven seats as standard, with the rearmost two independently foldable into the boot floor.
The second row of seats also features a tilting backrest and sliding function, allowing the space behind to be extended.
The Outlander range has recently undergone significant styling changes: including a new honeycomb mesh front grille, new front lower extension, new headlight design, new rear bumper design and new two-tone 18in alloy wheels.
More soundproofing has been added to the cabin, while additional structural adhesive welding between body panels is designed to improve rigidity.
Changes to the front strut and rear shock absorbers have also been made, with the aim of providing a smoother ride.
