As we come closer to the end of the year, automakers are going to be introducing the new model year of their vehicles. With the 2021 global semiconductor chip shortage, this will be a chance for some automakers to bounce back, unable to fulfill orders or include certain features on their 2020 models. Aside from fancy features, consumers also care about safety, and automakers will need to rely on organizations like the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) for high praise. Neither organization is a push over, so when the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander receives a Top Safety Pick Plus (TSP+) rating from IIHS, the highest safety rating available from the organization, we know it’s a safe vehicle to choose.

Like we said, the IIHS is no pushover. When it comes to testing a vehicle for crashworthiness – or how well it handles a crash – the IIHS has five crash scenarios to test the vehicle’s structure and how well it reduces impact and damage to the driver and passengers inside the cabin. On top of this, safety features and systems designed to mitigate the damage or avoid a crash altogether are also tested. Each crash test receives a rating of “Poor”, “Marginal”, “Acceptable”, or “Good”, whereas the safety systems are rated with “Basic”, “Advanced”, and “Superior”.

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.
