The 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a decent safety roster, with all the features that are expected in an affordable small crossover wagon. Safety ratings have been good, too.
With stability control, anti-lock brakes, and side and side-curtain bags all standard, as well as front knee bags, the Outlander Sport has all the now-requisite items, along with a little more. And we've noticed that, considering the rather thick rear pillar, the elevated seating position in the Outlander Sport offers pretty good outward visibility, although some moms might want to note the omission of a backup camera system.
Although the Outlander Sport hasn't been crash-tested by the federal government, it's earned top 'good' ratings from the IIHS for frontal and side impact—although it hasn't yet been tested in the IIHS roof strength test. .
