2015 Mitsubishi Outlander: Safest Small SUV Around

October 9th, 2014 by


Lovering Mitsubishi is happy to carry the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander, which is noteworthy for its range of safety features, as well as excellent safety ratings.  

Built for Safety

The 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander is built with RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) body construction, which improves passenger protection by a huge margin. RISE helps with energy absorption and cabin integrity in the event of a collision, and protects you and your loved ones to the maximal possible degree.

Standard Safety Features

2015-mitsubishi-outlander-displayAn important safety feature of the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander is Active Stability Control (ASC), which monitors tire grips, conveying information to the anti-lock brake system that puts the brakes on the wheels with the most traction. This feature guarantees your safety in the event of a tire slip.

Antilock disc brakes, traction control, and hill-start assist also come standard. Hill start assist makes it easier and safer to get going on an incline. In addition to these features, there are a total of seven airbags inside the Outlander. These are made up of front seat side airbags, side curtain airbags, and also a driver-side knee airbag.

Optional Safety Features

Drivers also have the option of adding on a few advanced safety features that help prevent crashes. A lane-departure warning system uses a camera system to detect what’s in front of the Outlander. If the Outlander diverts from its path unexpectedly, the car alerts the driver. Meanwhile, a forward collision safety system will alert the driver of an impending crash. If the driver fails to react, the system will apply brake pressure and then instigate full panic braking.

Safety Ratings of the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander

The 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander was named a Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety.
