Moderate overlap front

Rating applies to 2004-11 models

Tested vehicle: 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor LS 4-door 4wd

The Mitsubishi Endeavor was introduced in the 2004 model year.

Driver restraints and dummy kinematics

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 well.

Smeared greasepaint indicates where the dummy's head hit the B-pillar and roof rail during rebound. Head accelerations from these hits were low.

Forces on the lower right leg were high enough to indicate the possibility of injury.

Side

Rating applies to 2007-11 models

Tested vehicle: 2008 Mitsubishi Endeavor LS 4-door 4wd with standard front and rear head curtain airbags and standard front seat-mounted torso airbags

The Mitsubishi Endeavor was introduced in the 2004 model year. Front and rear head curtain airbags were added beginning with 2007 models to the front seat-mounted torso airbags available in earlier models.

View of the vehicle after the crash with doors removed, showing the side airbags and damage to the occupant compartment.

Smeared greasepaint shows where the driver dummy's head was protected from being hit by hard structures by the side curtain airbag (shown after dummy was removed from vehicle).

Smeared greasepaint shows where the rear passenger dummy’s head was protected by the side airbag.
