The new Top Safety Pick+ designation is the highest award offered by IIHS. It recognizes vehicles that provide superior collision protection across the board.
Ratings of “good,” “acceptable,”
In order to earn the Top Safety Pick+ rating, a vehicle must score a "good" rating in at least four of the five tests, and at least an "acceptable"
Out of the 15 vehicles in the small SUV class that were tested, only three earned the “plus” designation, and two were Mitsubishi vehicles: the Outlander and the Outlander Sport.
The outstanding performance of the new 2014 Outlander in these tests is due to the advanced design and the high-tensile steel construction, as well as the Mitsubishi-patented Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) technology. A system of integrated crumple zones and reinforcements engineered to absorb energy, RISE technology provides maximum protection to vehicle occupants.
The new Outlander also benefits form the inclusion of advanced safety systems such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Mitigation, and Lane Departure Warning, which is offered as part of the Touring Package for the SE and GT models.
