Five stars, front impact protection and side impact protection

A long list of safety features and world-class crash-test ratings make the 2009 Mitsubishi Outlander a wise choice.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) subjects the 2009 Mitsubishi Outlander to its full battery of tests and subsequently awards it a perfect five stars in all four impact tests. The Mitsubishi 2009 Outlander earns this five-star rating for front driver and passenger impact protection, as well as driver and passenger side-impact protection. A further testament to the solid construction and engineering featured on the Mitsubishi Outlander comes from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), where testers award the 2009 Mitsubishi Outlander their highest rating, "good," for frontal offset impact protection.

As important as crash-test results are, a second, and equally critical, component is the list of standard and optional safety features that come with a vehicle. Here, again, reviews read by TheCarConnection.com indicate that the Mitsubishi Outlander is a standout, and all of its safety features come standard on every trim level. MotherProof reviewers state that these features include "an advanced air bag system and an anti-lock brake system," while Cars.com adds that "an electronic stability system" comes standard. Rounding out the list of safety features, Edmunds says that "whiplash-reducing front head restraints" are found on every 2009 Mitsubishi Outlander.

The 2009 Mitsubishi Outlander manages to excel at offering excellent driver visibility where other crossovers fail. ConsumerGuide notes that although the "tall 3rd-row seatbacks partially block the view astern," the "visibility is fine otherwise."

Both major crash-testing agencies, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and the government's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), have tested the 2009 Mitsubishi Outlander, and the results are very impressive.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
