The redesigned 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander seven-passenger crossover has been named an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ when equipped with Forward Collision Mitigation.

This is the third consecutive time the Outlander has received the award. It packs numerous standard safety features, including seven airbags, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Active Stability Control with Traction Control Logic, and Anti-lock braking system with Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Brake Assist.

It also offers advanced safety features like Forward Collision Mitigation, Lane Departure Warning, and Adaptive Cruise Control, which keep occupants safe by preventing accidents from occurring in the first place. This had made it very popular among families at Bell Mitsubishi.

The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander earned the Top Safety Pick+ award by receiving the highest-possible safety ratings in all five of the IIHS’s major crashworthiness tests and receiving an “Advanced” score for front crash prevention.

“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,” said Don Swearingen, executive VP.
