The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander is now an IIHS Top Safety Pick+

The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander isn’t just the brand’s most popular vehicle—the crossover might also be its safest. Mitsubishi recently announced that the 2016 Outlander has once again been named an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick+ with the availability of Forward Collision Mitigation. This is the safety organization’s highest possible honor.

#1 Crossover: See why the Mitsubishi Outlander ranked #1 on

“Since its redesign in 2014, the Mitsubishi Outlander with available Forward Collision Mitigation has been an IIHS Top Safety Pick+,” said Don Swearingen, executive vice president of Mitsubishi Motors North America. “With over 100 improvements from the previous model year, the 2016 Outlander truly serves as an ambassador for the brand’s dedication to superior safety and reliability.”

To ensure the safety of its customers, Mitsubishi has made advanced safety technology more affordable with the SEL Advanced Safety Package, which is available on the Outlander’s lower trim levels. For the affordable price of $26,545, consumers can receive Forward Collision Mitigation, Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control, rain-sensing windshield wipers, power-folding side view mirrors, auto on/off headlights, and a front wiper de-icer.

These additional features only add to the Outlander’s other standard safety features, which include Active Stability Control with Traction Control Logic, as well as an Anti-lock Braking System with Electronic Brake-Force Distribution and Brake Assist.

With this long list of standard and inexpensive advanced safety features, it’s no wonder the Mitsubishi Outlander has once again earned the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ title.
