All new Outlander has been designed to exceed 5 Star ANCAP safety requirements. So you’ll find Mitsubishi’s RISE body construction, ABS, Active Stability Control, Active Traction Control, Hill Start Assist and 7 airbags across the range. Then, there are the advanced safety features e-Assist, a clever system that incorporates Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Mitigation found on VRX models. Whichever model you select, new Outlander is a very safe choice indeed.
RISE. Keeping everyone safe.
All Mitsubishi vehicles feature Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution body design, or RISE. In new Outlander, it's the best expression ever of this safety design principle. RISE offers increased safety in a collision by absorbing impact in some areas and redirecting it away from others. The front fenders are even shaped to keep pedestrians safer.
7 SRS airbags
Whichever angle an impact is encountered, there's an airbag to counter its effects. There are front airbags for driver and passenger, driver's knee airbag, plus side and curtain airbags.
Electronic Control Four Wheel Drive System
4WD Eco Mode, 4WD Auto and 4WD Lock instantly give you the right traction system for safety and efficiency.
4WD Eco Mode When driving in normal conditions, Outlander is in 2WD. If a sensor detects potential loss of traction, 4WD will be implemented, giving more control and grip to every wheel.
4WD Auto Conditions have a habit of changing without warning. With 4WD Auto, your traction system changes with them. It improves grip and makes turning smoother.
4WD Lock Sometimes, conditions hit rock-bottom. Or mud-bottom. 4WD Lock gets you out safely.
Hill Start Assist
If you’re on a steep hill, this system applies the brakes for a few seconds while you move your foot from brake to accelerator, preventing roll back. How civilised.
Active Traction Control (ATC)
This system is a feature of Active Stability Control and responds immediately to loss of traction. By braking the wheel that’s slipping and sending power to the others, it means you keep the path you intended as you turn or negotiate tricky surfaces.
Active Stability Control (ASC)
Maintains stability and control when cornering, by automatically recognising under-steer and over-steer. It applies brakes to the appropriate wheels to keep you online through corners.
Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD)
This technology reduces stopping distances by detecting passengers or heavier loads and automatically increases rear-braking force.
Multi-mode Anti Lock Braking System (ABS)
This allows you to manoeuvre around objects under heavy braking conditions. Outlander’s intelligent 4-channel, 4-sensor braking system works in conjunction with the drive mode to monitor different wheel speeds and activate brakes to individual wheels when required to deliver superior control.
e-Assist on VRX
This is the final word in driving safety. e-Assist ensures maximum safety in many driving scenarios. It incorporates 2 systems.
Adaptive Cruise Control - ACC Now, when the vehicle in front alters its speed, so does your cruise control. A radar mounted in the grille matches Outlander's cruise control speed to whatever you're following with appropriate adjustments of brake or accelerator.
Forward Collision Mitigation - FCM Once again, radar is used to identify obstructions ahead and warn of a potential collision. If the risk remains, this system applies the brakes to mitigate a collision.
