Comments

In general, the Outlander controls pollutant emissions reasonably well. In the warm test, emissions are low and, for particle number, is not excessive. In the cold ambient temperature and high-load highway tests, emissions of carbon monoxide, CO, are high and the Outlander scores no points in these tests. Likewise, in the heavy load on-road test, CO is elevated.

Comments

The Outlander's weight and shape count against its energy efficiency. While the car uses less energy in electric mode than in petrol mode, it manages a score of only 3/10 in this part of the assessment.

Comments

While emissions of the unregulated greenhouse gases N2O and CH4 are low, those of carbon dioxide, CO2, are above Green NCAP's upper limits in two of the tests, limiting the scores in these tests and contributing to the car's index of 4 in this part of the assessment.

Our verdict

The Outlander is tested here in its third-generation form, the first to be available as a plug-in hybrid (PHEV). A 2.4 litre petrol engine is coupled with two 60 kW electric motors, one for each axle. The driver is offered a wide variety of driving modes including pure electric and battery-charge sustaining. Green NCAP's tests were conducted in these two modes and the results combined in a way that represents how the car might typically be used, based on the available electric range. Because of the relatively low range, the rating is biased more towards the petrol mode than the electric one. In all three areas of assessment, the Outlander scores only modestly. Overall, with a rating of only 2 stars, the Outlander disappoints, with performance that is no better than many non-electrified competitors.
