Mitsubishi Motors is quickly becoming a hot automaker to watch as they constantly release new exciting technology, like the autonomous features at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show, and the Dendo Drive House at 2019 Geneva International Motor Show. During the Geneva Motor Show, the new plug-in hybrid Engelberg Tourer by Mitsubishi also debuted, the newest vehicle that may soon be added to the lineup. With Mitsubishi Motors needing to make room for new vehicles, the automaker is also making sure that its icon cars are still in the race, such as adding new safety tech to the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.
New Safety in the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
That’s right, the sporty sibling of the Mitsubishi Outlander is finally getting its dues with some upgraded tech. Currently, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport comes with an assortment of standard safety features, including an anti-lock braking system (ABS), traction and stability control systems, a total of seven airbags around the cabin (including the driver’s knee airbag and advanced dual-stage STS front airbags), three-point seatbelts and head restraints, a LATCH child seat anchor system, an anti-theft alarm system, and engine immobilizer. Also constructed along the Mitsubishi Motors Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) design, their vehicles are made to protect all passengers in an auto incident.
Some advanced safety features have turned up in recent years, such as forward collision mitigation, lane departure warning, and automatic high beam headlights. Going forward, Mitsubishi Motors has also added Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Lane Change Assist as available advanced safety option to the Outlander Sport lineup. Together, all of these work to give the driver a sense of all directions, even without the available multi-view camera, standard on the GT trim.
