The 2010 Mitsubishi Eclipse offers pretty good occupant protection, based on available crash-test information. Although federal crash-test results aren’t yet in, the Eclipse performs quite well in Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) tests, where the Eclipse is rated "good" in frontal and side impact but "marginal" for rear impact.

Even though the Eclipse’s styling is now a bit dated, Mitsubishi keeps its safety feature list with the times; electronic stability is now a standard feature across the 2010 Mitsubishi Eclipse line.

The Eclipse coupe comes with front seat-mounted side airbags and head curtain airbags. Cars.com notes the "coupe's six standard airbags include the required frontal-impact airbags and seat-mounted side-impact devices to protect front occupants." Edmunds, however, warns that the "airbags protect front riders only, and the rear seat lacks head restraints."

Conclusion

The 2010 Mitsubishi Eclipse has most of the safety features you’ll expect in a sporty coupe—along with reasonably good occupant protection.

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.
