I am due to get a 2018 model next week on lease. I have been told that there is no change to the price at all.

You will need to pair your Apple or Androd Device to the screen, to use satnav from your phone.



This is the system that is in the current Juro model in the UK (in case you want to look at one now). In my opinion it works very well and the Apple Car Play Sat Nav works for me.

If these changes have been made to the new 2018 model perhaps Mitsubishi have had to reduce production costs by cutting out some features such as SAT NAV and a sunroof in order to keep the 4H MSRP price below the critical £40000 road tax threshold. It was already only just below the threshold once a non solid paint had been added. I would be surprised if they could keep the price below with the 4HS though. Also with the government grant of £2500 due to go at the end of March that would be another potential pressure on costs of buying the car. Lets see when the brochure and price list comes out.


Quite possibly. I think they lost quite a few sales when the prices went up last time, as in it was delisted as a Motability option as well because of the price.

It clearly is a cost-cutting excerise - the license fee for the Sat Nav alone will save ££££s worldwide (the L200 is also dropping the Sat Nav for the Car-Play one too).

In regards to Sat-Nav, yes the current system is dated and there is better out there, but it had it, and was usable. Not all folk use their mobiles for mapping (or know how to). So yes, this could be risky - especially when you consider the price of £40k+ for a model should have it.

Yes, this was always a strange spec model to release. However, it cleary was a test-bed for the UK market, to see how the entertainment system was received, and if it could be adapted in 2018 in full accross the range. Clearly it went well!

Has anyone got any experience of Apple / Andriod with this?

My favoured satnav app at moment is TomTom Go - taffic alerts are very accurate in my experience. Do all satnavs apps work - or only selected ones?

My lease is up in 4 months and seriously considering another 4h.

I think only Apple Apps Work. However, if you Google it, you can jailbreak your phone and download an App to allow you to run other 3rd party software too. Such as Google maps etc

2018MY now on the Mitsubishi UK website this morning. :)

Looks like the 4HS and 5HS still get MMCS but everything else gets SDA with Apple and Android.

That's becasue the 4HS and 5HS are still 2017 models - I've had it confirmed they've a few left to shift still. When the 2017 model is fully sold, they'll then bring the 2018 model in for these too - probably Jan/Feb time.

It's why the 2018 model wasn't advertised previously - making sure existing stock had almost gone of the 2017 model, despite it actually being available.

Have you got yours yet?
