2023 Mitsubishi Outlander : Interior
The Mitsubishi Outlander 2023 models are more luxurious SUVs than its predecessor. The cabin is well insulated from wind and road noise, even at cruise speeds. The instrument cluster looks modern and understated, and most of the interior surfaces are covered in rich upholstery and soft-touch plastic. The main buttons and buttons on the instrument cluster are also tactile and work with considerable weight. As a result, this new Outlander cabin might give some entry-level luxury SUVs a bang for their buck.
The 2023 Outlander’s standard 8-inch and available 9-inch touchscreens are intuitive and responsive. The infotainment system’s menu structure is simple, graphics are clear and easy to read. Below the screens are physical buttons and buttons too, so you don’t have to rely on a tap or swipe to control every function. While the standard instrument cluster does its job just fine, the existing 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster is worth the upgrade. This screen is beautifully rendered and reconfigurable so you can view as much or as little information as you want. Standard infotainment features: 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, two USB ports, and a six-speaker stereo
