The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander
has earned Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. This independent non-profit agency does its own crash tests to determine if a vehicle can protect its passengers and possible prevent collisions. This is its fifth year on the IIHS list.
As you know, Outlanders are made for seven people, making them excellent family transportation. Winning this award reinforces that the Outlander can do its biggest job, protect its precious cargo. Among the standards, you’ll find LATCH attachment to hold carseats in place. There are airbags up front and along the sides to prevent the worst injuries. The count includes a kneebag for the driver. The tire pressure monitor is designed to warn you before a tire has a chance to blow out and cause damage. Hill Start Assist regulates the brakes and gears to give you a safe start when moving uphill from a standstill. Active Stability Controls are paired with Traction Control Logic. Electronic brake distribution regulates wheelspin. Learn about financing

New this year, Outlanders are offering crash avoidance systems. The lane change alert can be coupled with a lane change assist, a blind spot monitor, and a rear cross-traffic alert. Together these give you the real-time information you need to avoid side swiping other cars. Forward collision warnings alert you to slowing traffic and the mitigation system will help you slow the SUV to minimize or prevent collisions. Drivers will appreciate Adaptive Cruise Control which manages your speed in busy traffic. Automatic high beams are another available driver aid.
