Miami Lakes Mitsubishi Outlander Safety IIHS

Safety features continue to become more advanced in today’s average automobile. There was once a time where everything was manual. Today, we have smart technology, and not just in our phones. We have things like adaptive cruise control, autonomous braking, and even autonomous vehicles. You can find technology like this in the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander, an IIHS Top Safety Pick + recipient.

For the fourth year in a row, the Mitsubishi Outlander received a TOP SAFETY PICK+ (TPS+) from the Insurance Institute for High Safety (IIHS).
