    Right-hand-drive Outlander seems well prepared for bad UK roads, but offers little for owners to enthuse aboutThe third generation of Mitsubishi’s Outlander, which is now just weeks from its UK-market introduction. A full road test is in the offing, as is a group test – the latter taking into account the avalanche of new models you’ve got to choose from if you’re shopping for a £30k SUV this winter. Whether it’s the 2013 Toyota RAV4, the new Ford Kuga, last year’s Honda CR-V or the Hyundai Santa Fe – or none of the above – you can be certain that we’ll crown a new Autocar class champion before long.But ahead of all that came an early chance to sample the Outlander in UK-market specification and right-hand-drive form. Not on UK roads, more’s the pity, but at least on surfaces varied enough to tell how this medium-size seven-seater should conduct itself over here.
