New Outlander exceeds 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 Mitsubishi-Assist, a clever system that incorporates Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Mitigation. Whichever model you select, new Outlander is a very safe choice indeed. 4WD XLS and VRX come with auto high beam, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning and blind spot warning (a Mitsubishi first).
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.
This is the final word in driving safety. Mitsubishi-Assist on XLS and VRX models ensures maximum safety in many driving scenarios. It incorporates 2 systems: Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Mitigation.
Adaptive Cruise Control - ACC
When the vehicle in front alters its speed, so does your cruise control. Radar matches Outlander's cruise contol speed to whatever you're following with appropriate adjustments of brake or accelator.
Forward Collision Mitigation - FCM
Lasers and cameras are used to identify obstructions ahead and warn of a potential hazard. If the risk remains, this system applies the brakes to mitigate a collision.
Electronic Control Four Wheel Drive System
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.
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.
Daytime running lights
For added safety and improved visibility, Outlander features daytime running lights. The headlights are now LED, which use less energy and increase the vehicle’s overall efficiency.
Emergency Stop Signal
All models come standard with an Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) which flashes the rear high-mount stop light under heavy braking to warn following drivers.
