From the ground up, even the way it sticks to the ground, Lancer is one safe car. There is a comprehensive array of active and passive safety features all resulting in a very reassuring drive, and a 5-star ANCAP safety rating is also extremely comforting.
Plenty of airbags
All Lancers come with drivers, front passenger, side and curtain airbags as you’d expect. They also come with a driver’s knee airbag, a recent development that has been shown to reduce injury significantly.
The front airbags deploy in dual-stages, which means they inflate to minimise injury from the airbag itself.
Very safe safety belts
Inside every Lancer you’re also protected by three-point ELR safety belts with pretensioners. This system reels in any slack in the belt before impact, then releases a small amount to reduce sudden shock to the body.
