2012 Mitsubishi i Safety

7.0
Safety

The 2012 Mitsubishi i is one of the smallest, lightest vehicles for sale in the U.S. market. But that shouldn't keep you from considering this innovative electric vehicle.

In addition to roof-mounted side-impact airbags and seat-mounted side bags, the 2012 Mitsubishi i includes standard electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist, and a Brake Override system that prioritizes the brake pedal over the accelerator. It also includes LATCH connectors in the back seat, for mounting infant and booster seats.

There's no reason to believe that the 2012 Mitsubishi i electric car is any less safe than other small cars its size.

In Euro NCAP testing—the benchmark for safety in Europe—the i-MiEV earned a decent four out of five stars overall. Although it's unlikely that the federal government will make the I part of its testing for 2012, we hope to update this safety assessment as the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) might perform some of its tests.
