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 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

Rating applies to 2003-05 models

Tested vehicle: 2003 Mitsubishi Outlander LS 4-door 4wd without optional side airbags

The Mitsubishi Outlander was introduced in the 2003 model year.

When side airbags are optional, as in this vehicle when it was tested, the Institute conducts the test without this option. If a manufacturer offering optional side airbags requests the Institute to conduct an additional test of a vehicle with this option and agrees to reimburse the cost of the vehicle, a second test is conducted. Mitsubishi did not request such a test.

Note: the 2006 model Outlander is equipped with standard side airbags for the driver and front passenger, so these ratings do not apply to 2006 models.
