New Outlander Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle has the same 5 Star safety rating as its petrol and diesel stable mates. It also includes brand new safety features to accommodate its advanced technology. New levels of soundproofing help to complete the refined package.
The ultimate parking aid
The Multi Around View Monitor on VRX uses four cameras to give you a complete picture of what’s around you. Choose a specific angle or a bird’s eye view for the easiest park you’ve ever experienced.
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.
Keeping you out of harm's way
An innovation to help keep you out of harm’s way is the new mis-acceleration prevention system. While manoeuvring forwards or backwards, should the driver accidentally stamp on the gas pedal instead of the brake a device senses if there’s something in the way and instantly disables the throttle.
Forward Collision Mitigation
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. (VRX)
Adaptive Cruise Control
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. (VRX)
Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System
An alarm function alerts pedestrians near the vehicle when driving with the engine off (because the vehicle runs so quietly). The alarm has a different pitch depending on vehicle speed.
Whichever angle an impact is encountered, there’s an airbag to counter its effects. Driver and passenger-side SRS airbags, side and curtain SRS airbags, and a driver-side SRS knee airbag all come standard and protect occupants throughout the vehicle.
Advanced design and materials
An exceptionally quite cabin thanks to 4mm soundproof glass and damping materials covering more area. Additional sound-absorbing and insulating materials in the engine compartment, wheel housing, and other areas also help cut back on noise.
