Mitsubishi Motors first manufacturer with two Top Safety Pick+ in Small SUV category


Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) announced that its Outlander has been named a 2013 "Top Safety Pick+"*1 award winner by the United States' Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)*2.


The Outlander joins the Outlander Sport*3 in being recognized as a "Top Safety Pick+," making MMC the only manufacturer with two "Top Safety Pick+" in the Small SUV category. The Outlander Sport has already been recognized by the IIHC in two straight years as a "Top Safety Pick" in 2012 and 2013.
 

The IIHS awards the new "Top Safety Pick+" designation as its highest accolade for vehicles that offer superior crash protection. The Outlander's "Top Safety Pick+" achievement indicates that it meets the tougher crash safety standards that are now necessary to receive IIHS' highest award. So far only 3 out of a total of 15 vehicles tested in the category were designated as a "Top Safety Pick+."
 

The Outlander's exceptional IIHS "Top Safety Pick+" rating can be attributed to numerous advanced high-tech design features, particularly to its Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) body*4.
 

The Outlander gathers another recognition for safety as it has also been recognized for collision safety in Australia, awarded five stars by ANCAP*5, as well as in Japan, taking the JNCAP*6 Five Star award as well as First Prize. In addition, the Forward Collision Mitigation System (FCM) advanced active safety technology*7 used in the Outlander was recognized in Europe by Euro NCAP*8.

(North American version)

 

*1:      The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) rates vehicles as "good," "acceptable," "marginal" or "poor" based on performance in a moderate overlap frontal crash, small overlap frontal crash, side impact, rollover, plus evaluations of seat/head restraints for protection against neck injuries in rear impacts. The "Top Safety Pick+" requires a vehicle to score a "good" rating in at least four of the five tests and no less than an "acceptable" in the fifth test.
 

*2:      For more information, please visit http://www.iihs.org
 

*3:      RVR or ASX in some markets.
 

*4:      RISE is Mitsubishi Motors' patented safety body construction system featuring integrated energy-absorbing crumple zones and engineered reinforcements strategically placed within the body/chassis that provide maximum protection to the vehicle's occupants in the event of an impact by absorbing and/or dispersing a great deal of this energy from the cabin.
 

*5:      Australasian New Car Assessment Program http://www.ancap.com.au/crashtestrecord?Id=502.
 

*6:      A series of safety evaluation tests conducted by Japan's Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) and National Agency for Automotive Safety and Victims' Aid (NASVA). The JNCAP First Prize is given to an automobile that achieves the highest ever score.
 

*7:      Forward Collision Mitigation System (FCM). FCM automatically applies the brakes as necessary to help avoid a collision with the vehicle ahead or reduce impact damage in the event of a collision. In some markets Lane Departure Warning System (LDW) which alerts the driver when the vehicle starts to drift from its lane, aiding driver concentration - and Adaptive Cruise Control System (ACC), a radar-based system that automatically maintains a driver-adjustable distance with the vehicle in front, reducing the chance of a collision if the vehicle in front suddenly stops - are also available.
 

*8:      Established in 1997, Euro NCAP (New Car Assessment Program) organizes crash-tests and provides motoring consumers with a realistic and independent assessment of the safety performance of some of the most popular cars sold in Europe. http://www.euroncap.com/rewards/explained.aspx
