The new-generation Mitsubishi Outlander crossover has received the highest rating for safety among models released in 2021.
Japanese independent organization JNCAP has conducted crash-tests of a crossover Mitsubishi Outlander of a new generation. According to the results of tests, the car has received the highest rating among the models to appear in 2021.
The program of JNCAP crash tests includes a frontal impact on the deformable overlap at 64 km/h, collision with a monolithic obstacle at 55 km/h, side-impact, as well as testing of pedestrian safety in a frontal collision, and control of electronic auxiliary systems.
The safety level of a new Mitsubishi Outlander is rated 93% – according to test results the crossover has got 176,77 points out of 190 possible. Slight reproaches from the experts were caused by the protection level of a rear passenger in a front collision and also the work of the function of unfastened belt reminder.
The new Mitsubishi Outlander debuted in early 2021. The main technical change was the new CMF-C/D platform with the rear multilevel suspension, which is shared with the Nissan X-Trail (in the U.S. this model is sold as the Rogue). A 2,5-liter petrol “four” capacity of 181 h.p., working together with a variation of the firm Jatco and improved system of a full drive Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) has got from it to the new Outlander. A total of five driving modes are available to the driver: Eco, Normal, Tarmac, Gravel, Snow, and Mud.
