Prices for the PHEV Plug-in hybrid now look much more competitive, starting at around £35,500. Prices range all the way up to around £43,500 and there's a choice of four trim levels - 'Verve', 'Design', 'Dynamic' and 'Exceed', with interim 'Safety' versions of the top two variants available featuring enhanced camera-driven safety kit.
Even the entry-level 'Verve' variant includes quite a few luxury features - things like heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, keyless operation, rear parking sensors, a rear spoiler, cruise control, electric folding door mirrors, headlamp washers, automatic headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, auto-dimming rear view mirror and a programmable climate control system which can warm or cool the car in advance of a journey. 'Design' trim adds 18-inch alloy wheels, plus Mitsubishi's eight-inch Smartphone Line Display Audio (SDA) system with smartphone integration (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto). The 'Dynamic' version adds leather upholstery with an eight-way adjustable electric driver's seat, black headlining, blind spot warning and rear cross traffic alert, while the top 'Exceed' variant gives you integrated TomTom satellite navigation, diamond quilted leather upholstery, LED headlights with LED high beam, LED front fog lights, 360-degree camera, heated steering wheel, power tailgate and twin rear USB sockets.
