2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Safety

8.0
Safety

There's nothing lacking in the Outlander Sport's safety roster; it includes the expected stability control, anti-lock brakes, and side and side-curtain bags, and the Outlander Sport also comes with front knee bags. It's also earned 'good' ratings from the IIHS for frontal and side impact.

There's not yet any other occupant-protection information available regarding the Outlander Sport. It is based heavily on the larger Outlander, which has received some pretty good ratings for safety, but at a foot shorter and with different seating, sheetmetal, and even a significantly different structure, it merits its own crash-testing throughout. We'll update this entry if either major U.S. safety agency tests the 2012 Outlander Sport.

Based on the information available, the 2012 Outlander Sport is a secure pick.
