The name Outlander suggests rugged adventures, but the seven colours on offer from Mitsubishi convey a mix of fun and utility.
There aren’t any fancy options, but the staples are all here. If the Outlander is on your list of vehicles to consider, take a look at all the colours side-by-side to see which suits you best.
Frost White (£0)
Frost white is white like vanilla ice cream, the kind you might get in a waffle cone on a summer evening. It is a basic, no-frills colour. Mitsubishi, somewhat surprisingly, only offers white in non-metallic form. A non-metallic black would seem appropriate for those who plan to venture off-road some, but alas, they will have to make do with white.
Cool Silver (£500)
Cool Silver is a fairly light metallic paint scheme that nonetheless stands out from its white siblings. Metallic silvers have a reputation for looking very good on cars, and that reputation is upheld with Cool Silver. A bonus on a car like the Outlander is that silver is fairly good at hiding road grime.
Orient Red (£500)
Some cars come in brilliant red and some come in bright red. Orient Red is a mix of the two, perhaps edging over closer to the bright end of the spectrum. It is by far the most attention-grabbing colour offered on the Outlander.
Atlantic Grey (£500)
Atlantic Grey is a rather dark grey, though still a few notches south of black. It is a fairly standard colour, and nothing about it is exciting or off-putting. If you like your cars grey, odds are you will be satisfied with Atlantic Grey. If not, Cool Silver is a lighter option, while Amethyst Black is a darker option.
Tanzanite Blue (£500)
Tanzanite Blue is a surprisingly elegant colour. Mid-priced vehicles such as the Outlander are seldom graced with a colour that exudes such refinement. If Tanzanite Blue looks a little out of place on the Outlander, don’t blame the colour. It’s just punching above its weight.
White Pearl (£500)
White Pearl has a little silver in it, which distinguishes it, from a colour-tone perspective, from Frost White. The other main, and obvious, difference between the two, is the pearlescent paint, which has a lot more life to it thanks to the embedded metal flakes, which are especially noticeable in strong sunshine.
Amethyst Black (£500)
This pearlescent black is very similar to other such blacks. It gives of a nice sparkle in the sun and occupies a safe tone in the range of blacks. The only surprise is that there is not another black available, either in solid or metallic form. If you want your Outlander to be black, you will have to pay for it.
