2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Makes Safest SUVs List
Designed to measure protection levels when a vehicle impacts a pole, tree, or oncoming traffic on the left front corner of the vehicle, the small overlap test joins the moderate overlap frontal-impact test, side-impact test, roof crush strength test, and the rear-impact injury prevention test in the IIHS assessment program. The 2014 Outlander receives "Good" ratings in all five of these tests, earning it a "Top Safety Pick Plus" rating.
The redesigned Outlander is a 7-passenger crossover with a third-row seat designed for children. It debuts a new design direction to be reflected in future Mitsubishi models, and is available with several new safety technologies, including a knee air bag for the driver, structural design that limits brake pedal intrusion during an accident, forward-collision mitigation system, and a lane-departure warning system.
Like most other Mitsubishi models, the 2014 Outlander includes a 10-year/100,00-mile powertrain warranty. The new SUV is offered in ES, SE, and GT trim levels, with a choice between a 4-cylinder and a V-6 engine. A Super All-Wheel Control all-wheel-drive system is optional, featuring Normal, Eco, Snow, and Lock driving modes.
Notably, Mitsubishi's smaller Outlander Sport model is also named a "Top Safety Pick Plus," having received an "Acceptable" rating in the new small overlap test.
