Everyone wants to feel safe in their vehicles, and the latest Mitsubishi Outlander is no exception. Regardless of whether you go with an ES, SE, LE, SEL, or GT trim, this small SUV provides enough amenities to ensure that safety and security are top priorities. After all, it isn’t a Top Safety Pick Plus-rated vehicle by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for nothing.

For restraint and cushioning in the event of a crash, the Mitsubishi Outlander is handsomely equipped with a driver’s knee airbag, a pair of front impact airbags facing the driver and front passenger, two side impact airbags installed on the front seats, and a pair of roof-mounted side curtain airbags for head protection at both rows of seats. Braking ability is greatly enhanced by four-wheel disc brakes to keep stopping distances short, an anti-lock braking system to prevent wheel lockup when abruptly applying the brakes, electronic brake-force distribution to properly allocate braking force to the wheels, and brake assist for additional braking force when needed. You will also get hill start assist control to prevent rollback when starting to drive from a parked position on a steep hill, electronic stability control to keep your Outlander in the intended driving path, and traction control to combat skidding on slippery surfaces. And theft deterrence is provided by the combination of remote keyless entry, a panic alarm, and engine immobilization.

If you go with the mid-tier Outlander LE trim or higher, you will also get a trio of driver-assistance tech: blind spot monitoring, lane change assist, and rear-cross traffic alert. They work together to increase awareness of vehicles to either side or your rear, thus avoiding unnecessary accidents.
