Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.
Good Acceptable Marginal Poor
The Mitsubishi Outlander was introduced in the 2003 model year.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. During rebound, the head contacted the head restraint and then moved forward and brushed the roof rail.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity. Head acceleration from the roof rail hit was negligible.
Left to right:
- Action shot taken during the frontal offset crash test.
- The dummy's position in relation to the steering wheel and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver's survival space was maintained very well.
- The dummy's head moved well forward into the airbag during the crash.
- Intrusion into the driver's space was minimal, and all leg and foot injury measures were low.
- Side airbags: front seat-mounted torso airbags (standard in 2006 models; optional in 2003-05 models)
- Antilock brakes (optional)
