The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross features safety technology in the upper echelon of the automotive industry, and the brand recently took home the award to prove it. The Eclipse earned a Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in its 2019 tests. The IIHS is an independent, non-profit organization that rates vehicle safety across the industry, basing its findings on a variety of factors.

To earn a Top Safety Pick rating, vehicles must earn “Good” ratings on the driver-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraint tests, as well as an “Acceptable” or “Good” rating in the passenger-side small overlap front test. Mitsubishi notes that the Eclipse Cross scored “Good” in all six crash-test areas.

“We’re focused on engineering safety, quality and reliability into every vehicle we build, which is reflected in the IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK recognition for the Eclipse Cross,” said Mark Chaffin, chief operating officer, Mitsubishi Motors North America. “Eclipse Cross continues to impress customers with its distinctive and rugged design, advanced connectivity features and available active safety equipment that current drivers desire in the popular compact SUV segment.”

Safety features on the new Eclipse Cross include Brake Assist, Daytime Running Lights, and Electronic Stability Control. Available systems such as a Multi-View Camera System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Mitigation, and Blind Spot Monitoring also add to the SUV’s award-winning suite of safety technology.
