2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Earns IIHS Top Safety Pick+

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). The IIHS is a trusted organization for rating vehicle safety by putting it through several impact-crash simulations. Before it hits the streets, a car is smashed up and tested for safety in head-on collisions, side-impact, roof strength, head restraints, and crash avoidance and mitigation. To get a TPS+, a vehicle must get high ratings across the scorecard.

What Could the New Mitsubishi + Nissan Partnership Bring?

Miami Lakes Nissan Mitsubishi GT PHEV Concept Paris

If you haven’t heard the news, Nissan is in the process of taking Mitsubishi Motors under their wing. Back in April, Nissan purchased a huge chunk (34 percent) of Mitsubishi Motors. That’s not enough to own the company, but it’s enough to create an important joint partnership, and what is to come in the future could be very exciting.

For starters, we could see a whole new lineup of vehicles in the next few years. With new access to the Nissan/Renault vehicles, a veil will be lifted on design and technology advancements. Mitsubishi is also strong in crossovers, 4x4s, SUVs, and pickup trucks, so we’re bound to see bigger and badder vehicles.

Of course, because the two companies are still separate, we won’t see cars from Mitsubishi that have the Nissan badge slapped on, nor vice-versa. We will however see a large amount of sharing between the two companies. Particularly a sharing of technology design and implementation, a tech swap if you will. Why? Well if there’s one thing we know Mitsubishi is knocking home runs in, it’s in plug-in hybrids.

Mitsubishi hit a sales landmark recently. More than 100,000 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEVs have been sold worldwide since it launched in 2012. While this is big news for Mitsubishi, what’s impressive is the fact that it is the leading selling plug-in vehicle in the United Kingdom, according to a Mitsubishi Motors UK spokesman.

Amidst the good news, production of other Mitsubishi vehicles is expected to soon increase as the company is expanding production and sales in the Philippines. Mitsubishi is expanding its assembly in the Philippines due to high demand. Currently, the auto brand is growing at a fast rate and aims to boost 2016 output by 17% to meet those demands.

Reviewing the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

PHEV-4

The Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In Hybrid (affectionately referred to as PHEV) has been taking Europe and Japan by storm, zooming to the top of the best-selling lists. Looking at the Netherlands alone, the PHEV has been responsible for 95-percent of total Outlander sales. To keep up with the high demand, the vehicle has reportedly been delayed in the United States for at least a couple of years.

That’s disappointing, as the PHEV is one of the most innovative electric cars on the market. Considering it’s combination of impressive attributes, there’s no doubt that Mitsubishi’s hybrid would be a hit in the states. While it will take a while for the vehicle to show up on a local Mitsubishi Outlander dealership‘s lot, you can at least appreciate the European and Japanese versions…
