When customers shop for a family SUV, safety is usually at the top of their list of desired features. At Coronet Mitsubishi, we’re proud to say that the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander, one of our most best-selling models, has been named a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
For 2016, earning IIHS Top Safety Pick+ certification is no longer a matter of receiving the highest score of “Good” in all but one category. This time, models must earn the highest safety score in every crashworthiness evaluation, including small overlap front, moderate overlap front, head restraints and seats, side, and roof strength.
Even then, that’s only good enough for the Top Safety Pick award sans the plus sign. To get the latter, vehicles must also earn an “Advanced” or “Superior” rating for front crash prevention, which the Outlander achieved when equipped with optional Forward Collision Mitigation technology.
