Standard safety kit for the Outlander includes the expected stability control, anti-lock brakes, and side and side-curtain bags, and the Outlander Sport also comes with front knee bags.
There's not yet a lot of occupant-protection information available regarding the Outlander Sport, but it is based heavily on the larger Outlander, which has received some pretty good ratings for safety. Yet, at a foot shorter and with different seating, sheetmetal, and even a significantly different structure, it merits its own crash-testing. So far, it's done just as well as the larger Outlander, with top 'Good' results from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), but it hasn't at all been tested by the federal government's NCAP program.
