For many people, a large SUV is overkill for their needs, but that doesn't stop them from feeling like they want one.

When we reviewed the Mitsubishi ASX back in 2014, it arrived almost exactly as large swathes of the UK became submerged during the worst flooding the country had seen in decades.

I’d have loved to have had a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV back then, because this is an SUV that would have blown their tiny minds. Why? Two numbers: 156 mpg and 42 g/km.
