Three Mitsubishi Models Named 2015 Top Safety Picks
Three 2015 Mitsubishi models have just been named 2015 Top Safety Picks or better by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, including the Outlander, Outlander Sport, and Lancer.
Both the Lancer and the Outlander Sport achieved the highest possible score of “Good” in most of the Institute’s crashworthiness evaluations—including moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraint—as well as a score of “Acceptable” in the more difficult small overlap front crash test.
That was enough to get the coveted Top Safety Pick honors, but the Outlander went even one step further. It got a good rating in the small overlap front crash test and an advanced rating in frontal crash prevention thanks to its Forward Collision Mitigation technology, earning it the Top Safety Pick+ award!
“The Mitsubishi RISE safety body construction system is the perfect example of this kind of technology,” said Don Swearingen, executive VP at Mitsubishi. “In the event of an accident, energy is absorbed and deflected away from the occupant cell, which enhances passenger protection.”
