Small overlap front

The small overlap front evaluation consists of a driver-side and a passenger-side component. This vehicle has an incomplete rating because it has been tested only on one side.

Driver-side

  • Rating applies to 2011-24 models

Tested vehicle: 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE 4-door 4wd

The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport was introduced in the 2011 model year.

Driver restraints and dummy kinematics
The dummy’s head contacted the frontal airbag but slid off the left side, leaving the head vulnerable to contact with forward side structure. The side curtain airbag deployed but does not have sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with forward side structure and outside objects. The side torso airbag also deployed.

Action shot taken during the driver-side small overlap frontal crash test.

The dummy's position in relation to the door frame, steering wheel, and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver's survival space was maintained reasonably well.

The dummy’s head contacted the frontal airbag but then slid off the left side. The side curtain airbag did not extend quite far enough forward toward the A-pillar to protect the head from contact with forward side structure.

Except for door hinge pillar deformation, intrusion into the driver's space was reasonably well controlled, and risk of injuries to the dummy's legs and feet was low.

How the small overlap front test is conducted

Moderate overlap front: original test

Rating applies to 2011-24 models

Tested vehicle: 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE 4-door 4wd

The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport was introduced in the 2011 model year. The vehicle is a variant of the Outlander SUV with a shorter overall length and no availability of a V6 engine or third row seats. Frontal ratings are assigned by the Institute based on a test conducted by Mitsubishi as part of frontal crash test verification.
