When designing and engineering a vehicle, nothing is more important than safety — and Mitsubishi keeps safety at the top of its priority list throughout the manufacturing process. As a testament to this philosophy, the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV recently earned a five-star National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Safety Rating.
The NHTSA evaluates the safety integrity of all new vehicles through the New Car Assessment Program. The 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV passed the side crash ratings with five stars. The new plug-in hybrid SUV was awarded four stars for front crash and rollover ratings.
The excellence of the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV in the NHTSA safety tests is not surprising when you consider the abundance of safety features integrated throughout the vehicle. Lane Departure Warning monitors your position within your lane and alerts you if you begin to stray. Adaptive Cruise Control maintains a safe distance between your vehicle and the car in front of you, even braking with the flow of traffic.
Forward Collision Mitigation with Pedestrian Detection uses sensors to scan for potential front-side collisions and mitigate the situation by applying the brakes. The program doesn’t only account for vehicles — it can also pick up on the presence of pedestrians and will automatically engage the brakes when necessary.
